Thread: Cooking Tripod /Dutch Oven question.

  1. #1

    Default Cooking Tripod /Dutch Oven question.

    Hi All

    I am thinking of making my own cooking tripod but am unsure of the height it should be.

    I have seen one on Evil Bay that has poles of 1m and others that are quite a lot taller.

    So my question is, do you have a cooking tripod and if so what height are the poles ?

    Thanks to all in advance.

    Hi scotty7367,

    I've used "Road Pins", you can get them off ebay, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-GRADE-...item4aa98a0370, steel ring to hold the tops together and a length of chain to hang your pots from. A fraction of the price of a manufactured one..

    I made one up for our "portable fire pit" and the hight seems to be ok.

    Hope this helps.

    Are they not a wee bit heavy to carry let alone carry in your canoe ? lol

    I found a trashed garden Gazebo in a skip (Green metal poles not plastic).

    It breaks down in to 6 poles and is nice and light, it even has flat ends with hole for a bolt with eye to hang chain from.
    It is 6ft but does look rather good.

    What size pot would you suggest for general use i.e. one/two person cooking/heating water ?

    Don't notice the weight, there just very sturdy.

    We have a 4ltr Dutch oven, which feeds 6, no problem, so something a bit smaller may do. As for water heating we use a Kelly Kettle.

    What ever work best you you, Scotty.
