Launched last year, the HitchFire Forge 15 grill attaches to your vehicle’s 2″ tow hitch, letting you bring a real grill with you anywhere you can drive. Now, they’ve added a number of accessories to create the “Ultimate Grill Station”.
Sold as a bundle for $899, the package includes the Forge 15 grill, a 15″x30″ hard maple side table / cutting board mounted to the stout tubular swing arm, a side burner for sautéing and simmering, and an Ignik propane Growler Kit with propane adapter hose. A grill cover rounds out the package, and it all integrates into their hitch-mounted swing arm.
All accessories are sold separately, too. The cutting board table provides should provide enough prep area for most car camping and tailgate meals, and can be removed to carry prepared food to your table. The side burner can be doubled, giving you one on either side of the main grill, perfect for heating coffee on one side and oatmeal on the other while the eggs and bacon get sizzlin’ in the center.
The Ignik gas Growler Kit is worth the upgrade even if you don’t get the full kit. It’s a refillable alternative to single use propane bottles, each one holding the equivalent fuel of 5 traditional green propane bottles.
Of course, the stock Forge 15 is plenty on its own for basic cooking. It has two hideaway side tables, a 355 sq. in. cooking surface with dual high output burners, and a tough powder coated frame. The swing-away mount locks it close in to your vehicle while driving, then pivots it well away for cooking. And you can rotate it to face any direction, so you’re always close to (or facing) the action while you cook.
“The Ultimate Grill Station opens up a world of possibilities and takes Adventure Grilling to new heights,” says Evan Currid, HitchFire CEO and Founder…and also the original founder of Tepui Tents, in case you were wondering. “This setup allows you to cook full course meals in virtually any setting all while feeling like you haven’t left your kitchen. Good food in amazing places is what we’re all about.”
