    I’ve recently purchased an Alton Goods titanium grill and it’s fantastic. Alton Goods are an Australian company based in Queensland. The grill comes in it’s own separate pouch sleeve thingy and is the perfect size for one person, it has small mesh on it so nothing can fall through. Anyway I’m super happy with it and just wanted to recommend it to you guys. They also gave me free delivery which was unexpected

    Thanks for the link, however that is not an Alton goods titanium grill. It is a titanium grill but a very cheap one that probably isn’t to the same build quality as mine, although it has been known for some inferior products to be just as good as other more expensive ones. I’m a big believer in buying quality goods so you only have to buy once. A friend of mine is the same and always buys cheap, he’s forever having to buy new stuff because things keep letting him down.

    Thank you once again though mate, peace to you

    They do look handy.

    For the amount it’s likely to be used I’d go the eBay £13.99 option every time, that’s more than enough cash for a little grill. Yours might be better, might not, you say it “probably” is. They’re all be made in the Chinese factories, often the same ones. Did you import your grill? I can’t see it being worth it with the import costs.

    Is DMC Survival your company, Survival School Yorkshire until last year?

    That’s pretty poor but is, when all said and done, how an economy works. Doesn’t make it right

    Oh yeah, I know that one, the zoom torch pop up advert “the police say you should never be without” that sells at £75 or $3 depending on whether the hype gets you or not. :D

    I could see me losing a few sausages with that flat plate, I quite like the larger mesh one. Either way, without legs they both are supported by the hot embers or balanced between logs.

    Was thinking if had one big enough for a backpack stiffener, and could strap stuff to it.

    Did notice PF Bereg have an 8 euro folding stainless stand 14" x 10" x 6.5" high, looks like needs to be stuck in the ground for stability.

    Or you could use four tent pegs as legs.

    My grill pan insert works well, it came from an old belling cooker. It's made of some sort of wire so very light, but rigid. cost £0.0p. has lasted many years on open fires and has many more left.
    Been tempted to buy a new one now and then but realy don't see the need.
    Two stones or logs to rest it on and I'm ready to cook.

    That's the idea, could even bend the sides to make it stand, I need to make one.

    I have used discarded disposable barby mesh in the past and it works great. Only problem is that stuff is ruddy sharp!
