- What is the porpose of the extra Irons? I have a 3 iron set up but
yours is the first 5 iron setup. Does one side swing out of the way
of the fire to check things in the pot. Enquireing Minds want to
Know. I'm always open to new ideas. johnw-ks
- OK, my turn, a couple things about a tripod I havn't seen yet is the
advantage of temp. control by height as well as # of coals. This is
also an option with Fire Irons if you have "S" hooks. I see this all
the time when I go to the Re-Enactments (Rev War). I have Fire irons
too, they come in handy if you're trying to cook a ham, turkey,
chicken over the fire.
Another advantage is uneven terrain. If you're on a slope it's not
such a pain to level things off. Gravity is good to you in this case.
I also like my tripod because I can use my stovetop DO's outdoors
unless you can put one on a grate over the fire. Before I purchased
my "Camp" ovens (which I should have done first), I already had some
stovetop DO's that I couldn't figure out how to use outdoors. After I
had purchased my tripod it dawned on me I had a way to use my
stovetop DO's outdoors. It still has it's limitations but I was glad
to see I had that option.

might clear up some of the confusion (or create even
