We’ve enjoyed using the Tough Tripod for many years, and we are proud to know that this versatile American made grilling accessory is manufactured in Wisconsin! What makes it a Tough Tripod? The ½ inch heavy pipe used to create the legs and handle gives it a strength never before seen! The Tough Tripod can be used for your backyard grilling. Set it up on your cement patio right over your portable fire pit for either charcoal or wood grilling.
The Tough Tripod is also great to use over your fire pit when you go camping. If your camp site doesn’t have a fire pit, you can always do what we did – use a tire rim as the base of a fire pit and set up the Tough Tripod above it. We go camping year-round, and the Tough Tripod has never failed to serve our needs!
The Tough Tripod is also fun to use while tailgating. It serves a dual role – cooking your food while keeping you warm. During the winter football games, there are always several Green Bay Packers fans huddled around our Tough Tripod keeping warm!
The Tough Tripod is perfect for cooking chicken, steak, hamburgers, hotdogs, and brats. The handle and pulley on the Tough Tripod allows you to raise and lower the grate to obtain the perfect cooking temperature for your food. The grate has a carefully designed stainless steel edge that prevents your food from rolling off. No more lost brats or hot dogs burning in the fire pit!
We will often place a cast iron frying pan on the grate of the Tough Tripod, and use it to cook our side dishes. We have cooked 8 lbs. of potatoes, 2 large onions, 2 lbs. of bacon, and a dozen eggs. It was more than enough to feed our whole bunch of Packer fans!
The Tough Tripod comes with a converter that allows you to hang a Dutch Oven over the fire for other kinds of cooking. Try cooking a beef or pork roast in the Dutch Oven. One of our favorite meals is beef stew. It’s a great way to take the chill off on cold days! Try your favorite home-made soup by using the converter, rather than traditional grilling techniques.
Top off dinner with your favorite Hot Toddy! Heat a pot of water on the grate to mix with Tom and Jerry’s or hot chocolate mixes. It warms you up from the inside out before heading in to the game at Lambeau Field, or relaxes you before bedding down in your sleeping bag for the night.
Don’t just accept our word that the Tough Tripod is a must-have grilling accessory. See what others have to say about it:
“An awesome quality product! It’s good to help a smaller company out with something that’s made in the USA! Solid as a rock, and I would know – I’m a boilermaker (welder). Keep up the good work. Best camping tripod I could find. I use it every time I go camping. You definitely get what you pay for!” – Isaac Schmuell
“Heavy duty, high quality, awesome! It’s so durable I don’t think I’ll ever have to purchase another one! I use it for camping, tailgating, and grilling out for lunch. You do good work. Thanks.” – jackpine (my woodcutting name)
“I got this for a birthday gift and I’m very satisfied! I use it at least once a month for camping and tailgating. I like the quality, the value, and also that it’s made in the USA (in Wisconsin). Thank you.” – anonymous
