The free-standing look more versatile with the grill and pan. Can easily be taken away from the fire for packing the meat or removing it if the fire gets too hot. Looks easy to adjust the height above the coals as well! Plus... you have the option to grill or stir fry?So I recently bought a fire pit like below so I can have some nice summer fires burning left over offcuts. I thought it would also be nice to cook some food over an open fire so am pondering how I can get a grill over the flames. Ideally, I want something height adjustable to control cooking speed. So just sticking a round grill over the top would not be ideal.

I was thinking of knocking together a tripod with hanging grill like below. I like the idea of chain allowing for height adjustment. Are they a pain to use? are you constantly moving the food around to get it to balance properly?

My other idea was something like this where you can swivel the grill around. As this is going on a concrete patio, it'll need something with legs
