Cold weather, wet wood, and blowing wind can quickly put a damper on any camping trip, but the Flex Neck Utility Lighter from Zippo ensures that you can easily start a roaring fire, regardless of the conditions. Forget those cheap plastic lighters. This dual-flame, wind-resistant, butane fueled utility lighter is crafted from durable metal, allowing it to take a beating and keep functioning perfectly. A flexible neck precisely positions the flame in any direction. The narrow gauge head is small enough to reach into tight spots in lanterns and camping stoves so make sure to pick one up for your next hunting, fishing or camping trip.
We have all sat down for a barbeque and had burgers or brats that have lighter fluid aftertaste. It’s pretty gross. There are other options folks – you don’t need to soak your charcoal with lighter fluid to get the grill going. If you have never used a gelled fire starter, you should definitely give it a try. Perfect for grills, smokers, pellet stoves, fireplaces or fire pits, the Rutland One Match is an odorless gel fire starter that eliminates flare-ups and wont flavor food when used for cooking.
We love open fire cooking here and this tripod cooker is one of the best out there. Quick and easy setup, with a lightweight and compact design, this is the perfect cooker for camping or backpacking. This 18-inch grill has more than enough room for dinner or to keep the coffee warm. The adjustable grill chain makes it simple to adjust temps on the fly. There is nothing better than sitting around a campfire and throwing on a couple of steaks for dinner.
There are many ways to start a fire. Using a ferro rod is definitely one of the coolest methods. Are there easier ways to get a fire going? Sure. But if you want to impress your friends, bust out the Exotac nanoStriker XL, some tinder bundle, and you will make fire. The nanoSTRIKER XL quite possibly might be the last fire starter you ever buy as you can literally start thousands of fires on one rod. It’s a basic, time-tested method that will surely impress on your next camping trip.
Don’t be caught with the same lighter as someone else! Ditch the disposable lighter and impress your friends with this limited edition super sweet T-Rex Zippo. That’s right – a T-Rex! How awesome is that? This is the original Windproof Lighter made in the USA and backed by the Zippo lifetime warranty – you break it and they will fix it – for free.
A perfect gift for hikers/backpackers that don’t like to stay in one spot, this grill could also double as a portable fire pit. Folding down to only 1.5 inches thick and just over 3 pounds, it could easily fit into your backpack for those who like to be on the move. A quick 30-second set up, this grill provides a stable cooking surface that safely contains fire and keeps it off the ground.
Millions of wildland acres will burn unintentionally this year. Listen to Smokey Bear – only you can prevent wildfires. If you are planning on starting a fire, make sure you have a safe and effective way of putting it out, or a tool to keep it from spreading. We recommend carrying a fire extinguishing spray with you at all times when camping. Pine Mountain makes a great product that has a spray time 4x longer than traditional fire extinguishers and covers 3x the surface.
Kindling Cracker Firewood Kindling Splitter
Making kindling is an essential part of the fire building process – and it can also be the most dangerous. Cuts, scrapes, slivers are commonplace but a more severe injury is always just one miss away. The Kindling Cracker not only makes the process much easier, but also much, much safer. Made from cast iron, this simple and brilliant design lets you split wood almost effortlessly and create kindling for your fireplace, fire pit, sauna, BBQ, or smoker. Trust us – this is worth it. Your fingers and hands will thank you.
Affordable and portable, the Big Red Portable Campfire is perfect for campsites with restrictions against in-ground fires. Includes a 10-foot propane hose for use with standard LP gas. No more smoke, ash, mess or the need to gather firewood. This is about as simple as it gets – hook it up and light to enjoy a campfire anywhere, anytime.
When it comes to outdoor fireplaces, this is one of the cooler designs out there. At night, the spherical fireplace looks like a floating fireball. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill fireplace. Landmann really made a quality product all-steel construction and extra large handles for easy access to stoke or refuel. We have come across countless flimsy outdoor fireplaces and this is definitely not one of them.
