Ask any camping enthusiast, and they’ll tell you that cooking outside is one of the most enjoyable parts of setting up camp. And who can blame them? Something is invigorating about cooking meat and vegetables over a fire with the scent of pine from the forest behind you, or—if you’re on a beach—the sound of waves crashing as you grill some oysters. Perhaps it’s a sense of primal enjoyment that still lingers in us? In any case, when you do cook outside, you’ll want to be sure you’re doing so in a smart way. And that’s why today we’d like you to meet the Cook System by Wolf and Grizzly compact cooking solution. This minimalist cook system circumvents some of the problems campers come across while cooking outdoors. Specifically, campfire cookers that are bulky, damaging to the environment, and challenging to set up.
At first glance, this compact cooking solution looks like a very sleek, yet practical way to cook your meals over a campfire. And it is. The Cook System boasts three height options so that you can have your pick of how close you want your food to be to your heat source. Also, an innovative stainless steel rail system transforms the foldable grill into a stable cooking platform. In fact, all of the metal components in the kit are made of 304 stainless steel. Now that’s quality you can count on. Best of all, all the parts of the Cook System nest into each other and easily fit in the carry case, making this compact cooking solution easy to take anywhere.
What’s in this campfire cooking set?
In your set, you’ll get the Grill, which is the Cook System‘s base. It’s a portable frame with a grill surface that’s ideal for traditional barbecuing. Just place the rail system on the Grill, you’ll have plenty of options for your outdoor meals. Also, in the Cook Set, you’ll get hibachi and griddle surfaces along with a 2-liter pot, bamboo cutting board, and rail system. Really, this cook system includes everything you need to make excellent meals over a fire. But speaking of fire, the Cook System comes with the Fire Safe. It’a two-part, portable fire pit that you can pair with either wood or charcoal.
How can you prepare flexible meals outdoors?
One thing’s for sure about this minimalist cook system; it’ll make your outdoor family meals more flexible. With its variety of cooking surfaces, you can hibachi, griddle, bake, or simmer your food. And all of the surfaces are secure and easy to use with the stainless steel rails and aircraft cable. They connect directly to the grill frame and create a strong and sturdy platform for your Cook Set. Because when you’re cooking over a hot flame, you want to be sure the cooking gadgets that you’re using are more than reliable.
Why do you need a height-adjustable outdoor cooking system?
Depending on the size and type of fire you’re working with, you may want to adjust the height of your campfire cooker. The trouble is that most products on the market are one-size-fits-all. But this minimalist cooking system solves that problem. I mentioned earlier the Cook System has three different height settings. These settings give you the flexibility to raise your food higher over large fires, or set it at a medium level over a pile of charcoal. Otherwise, you can prop it on a rock or log in the Stay-Flat Mode for a low-to-the-ground heat source.
How is this compact cooking solution environmentally friendly?
These days, we’re all looking to cut down on our environmental footprint, and the Cook System can help. When you use the Fire Safe portable fire pit, you’ll keep your fire contained and safely off the ground. Once you’ve extinguished the flames and the surface has cooled, you can easily dispose of ash by removing the insert from the tray. This also decreases the risk of a stray ember starting a fire after you’ve finished cooking.
If you like spending time outdoors, you’re going to love this minimalist cooking system. In a product design that’s elegant and modern, you’ll get meal flexibility in a system that’s easy to store and transport. The Cook System is also fun to use. Who wouldn’t love to cook a hibachi meal during their camping trip, without having to lug a heavy flat-top cooking surface to the campsite? And in the same kit, you can also boil as well as griddle your food. With the holidays not too far away, this outdoor cooking system makes an excellent gift for any outdoor enthusiast.
The Cook System by Wolf and Grizzly compact cooking solution costs $129, and you can preorder it on Kickstarter.
