Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

An over-fire grill turns your fire pit into a cooking area, whether you’re in your backyard or in the woods. The trickiest part of finding the right grill is making sure it fits over your fire pit and is the correct height or can be adjusted. Simple over-fire grills are placed over the fire and stand on metal legs, while others rest on the lip of the fire pit or can swing off of the fire for easy access to food. If you plan to grill on the go, look for smaller grates with folding designs that are relatively lightweight. Grill styles vary from parallel slats to tight grids, with varying thickness for different cooking styles and grill marks.
