Best Camping Pie Irons

You have to admit it, one of the best parts of camping is the food. There’s nothing quite like a delicious meal cooked over a roaring fire after a day of outdoor adventures. If you’ve yet to add a pie iron to your camping cooking supplies, you’re really missing out. This very simple, low-key piece of equipment is just a two-sided iron that closes at the end of a stick. You put it over a fire and cook the contents. Pie irons are used for not just hand pies, but also calzones, sandwiches, just about anything you can cook over a fire. Think of it as a rustic panini press or waffle iron. Ready to add one to your camping gear? Here are three to consider.

What We Liked: 

This cast iron cooker is by far the easiest pie iron on this list to use. The two parts of the pie iron are hinged together, so you don’t have to worry about keeping them together yourself when you cook. The near 30-inch handle means you don’t have to stand close to the fire to use it. And, the whole outfit is lightweight, so you don’t end up with sore arms after making just one sandwich or pie.
