My uncle is getting ready for his annual camping trip where he goes to his friend's big ranch in east Texas. He brought be in some old gas stove grates and ask me to make him a campfire stove with rotisserie. We got the stainless steel rod ordered for the rotisserie part and got to go saturday and pick up some angle iron to do the rest.

Almost finished still got to clean it up and bend the rod for the rotisserie. We cut the bottom of the legs at a point so he can push it in the ground.

We did away with the flat stock for rotisserie and went with small c channel. We also added flat stock around the sides to keep stuff from sliding off.

Gas stove grates are a good idea,,they should not bend or sag from heat.  Much nicer than piece of expanded steel I use over the fire.
