If we DON'T have a fire it is cause for extra planning.  This weekend hubby used his ancient round grill screen and an old metal rod with tape on one end.  Start the fire early, cook over the resultant coals, using wood or sometime charcoal briquettes.  The metal grill balances on the edge of fire pit on one side, with other side balances on the metal rod placed across the top edge of the pit.  Sorry no pics.  We always cook sausages, steak, whole peppers, potatoes in foil, skewers, or grilled flatbread.  We had grilled peaches for dessert.  Corn is almost ready, so soak it in water for one hour (in the husk) and cook it slow over the fire to steam.  Like I said, no firepit means a rethink on the menu.  My backup is a trusty cast iron skillet on the Pod stove, or gonna make a lava brownie dessert in it over the fire.

I found a nifty little grate on line ( I will try to find out the info on it ) it is a metal rod with an arrow shaped point you drive in the ground near a fire ring, then the square roughly 28X12 chromed grill with a coiled metal cool handle slips over the rod and you can move it up and down to adjust the temp, it works great and I think I paid 35 dollars for it. nothing like grilled over an open fire meal to add extra flavor to camping cuisine.
