I use these "self contained grills", available in most hardware, camping stores. Aluminium, disposable trays, with charcoal, mesh top. Light with match, burns for about 45 minutes,
Disposable when completely cooled down, cost under $ 5.00

Alcohol stove for water boiling/cooking if the area is really restricted on fires. I’m building a Skottle for faster cooking. And I have a UCO Flatpack Grill, which I love. Drop some charcoal in and it’ll burn for hours. And you can cook over it, if desired.

Cotton balls in vaseline work for starters too....cheap and easy to pack in a tin. Fire sticks are good too....
Cotton balls or dryer lint coated in Vaseline and great, cheap, and easy to carry. I keep an old plastic prescription bottle packed full.

There are a few propane camp fire setups on the market I have one that I take when going to the desert where there is no wood.

Heres the one I have
Camco Little Red Campfire

This is what we use. We bought it to use when there are fire bans in effect, but have now come to appreciate it even when we can have wood fires. It's great for mornings when you want some heat fast, and don't want to build a big fire because you're just going to have to put out soon.

We just had one of these dropped off to check out:


Designed as a tailgater type unit, but I think it would be pretty cool in the camp too.

It's brilliant when your campground has a flame broil and fire ring accessible as a major aspect of the conveniences. Be that as it may, some portion of the adventure of overlanding is going a long ways past built up campsites to investigate really wild places where scattered outdoors is the main choice. Regardless of whether you're expediting in a moonscape desert, far down in a beachy ravine, or in the forested north nation, utilizing an open go fire pit flame broil give you increasingly culinary choices, and a feeling of home anyplace you illuminate it.

Normally collapsible and foldable for simple cleaning and pressing, an open fire flame broil bit of gear keeps your coals off the ground so you can truly Leave No Follow. An open fire barbecue likewise contains your burst more securely than flame broiling on an open fire that is completely open. That is the reason some consume bans are restricted to open consuming, or any fire that isn't in an incinerator, outside chimney, grill barbecue or grill pit.
