I would like to make a holiday offering for the Zia titanium grills. From now until December 31, the price for a grill will be $45, which includes PayPal fees as well as CONUS and Canadian shipping (for overseas people, I will have to check actual postage rates and modify the price slightly). If you are interested in the 2-grill setup to sandwich your fish, I will do that for $85 and I will include the two connector rods. This offer will be open to all, BPL members and also non-members. Same price for everybody.
For a look at the BPL product page, when they used to sell the grills, go to this link:
For general information about the grill, and to see how the "two grill" setup works, go to this thread:
If you have any questions regarding the grill, please post on this thread, and I'll try to answer them.
I realize that it's a bit out of season to be cooking trout over a fire (in the northern hemisphere), but this would be a good chance to plan ahead for next spring, and score a grill cheaply. It will also make an unusual holiday gift for someone on your list that thought he/she already has everything imaginable.
If you are interested, please post on this thread that you want one, and then send an e-mail to my home account—firstname.lastname@example.org

Can you ship via USPS? To a PO box?
RichardNov 11, 2011 at 5:59 am #1800713
Yes, Richard, I'm sure that I can. E-mail me at email@example.com, and we can work out the details.Apr 25, 2012 at 3:41 pm #1871154
Folks, I have a bunch of grills that need homes. So, from now through May, I am offering them for $45 each, which includes shipping. If you would like a matched set of two, I will send them to you for $85, and I will include 2 connector rods. If you are interested, PM me, or preferably, send an e-mail to my home: firstname.lastname@example.orgApr 26, 2012 at 10:15 am #1871504

Great product! Used them for my recent bday overnighter to cook up a nice 8oz buffalo steak. Made for a wonderful birthday dinner.Apr 26, 2012 at 10:56 am #1871525
Thanks, Cody. Buffalo Birthday Bash–you've got style!
Here's my technique, with 2-8 oz. filets. I create a small alcove off to the side of the main campfire, then simply shove the coals under the grill as needed. It's easy to control the amount of heat this way.
To boil water, I find that setting the pot partially on the support rock takes some of the weight off the grill and provides better stability.
A couple people have contacted me to tell me that their grills sagged horribly under load. I have never experienced this, but intense heat under a heavily loaded grill could certainly bend things downward. This is completely reversible, and the titanium isn't harmed. When it cools, simply bend the grill over your knee and shape it back to the way it was. These grills do have their limitations, and it is important to learn to use them properly. The key is to spread the weight evenly over the length of the grill, such as when grilling fish, and to employ your pot as shown in the photo above.
Thanks again, Cody–your support is appreciated.Apr 27, 2012 at 3:52 pm #1871966

Jackson and Thomas, your grills are on the way.May 5, 2012 at 12:11 pm #1874674
I mailed your grill yesterday, Colin. Hope you enjoy it!May 7, 2012 at 7:26 pm #1875419
Got my grill today, very fast shipping and delivery.
It's incredibly light and seems up to the task as as a lightweight packable grill. Quality is excellent, can't wait to try it out in the field.
Thanks Gary.May 8, 2012 at 7:31 am #1875515
Thanks for letting me know that you received it, Jackson. Let me know how it works for you, once you get to use it.May 10, 2012 at 10:50 am #1876282

Yes, Pete the Zia grills are still available, at a reduced price of $45 through the end of May.May 16, 2012 at 10:22 am #1878230
Thank you, I will send you an email as well.May 16, 2012 at 10:49 am #1878238
I responded to your pvt. e-mail, Devon.May 17, 2012 at 3:53 pm #1878758
Just a reminder–I am cutting the price of the Zia grills through the end of the month. A single grill for $45, and a matched double set with connectors for $85. Prices include shipping, as always.
Starting in early June, I will be tied up for most of the summer, out of town working and/or hiking, so I might not be able to ship anything in a timely manner. Now's your chance!May 17, 2012 at 3:55 pm #1878759
Oh, and I did ship your grill today, Jerry. Yours went out yesterday, Devon.May 19, 2012 at 1:11 pm #1879275
I made it to the post office before they closed today, and your grill is on its way. It should make it to you by Tue or Wed. Thanks, Gregor!May 22, 2012 at 1:48 pm #1880188
Just a friendly reminder, people–the price of the grills will go back to $50 on June 2. Get them while they're still $45 (or $85 for a double with connectors). I won't be around for much of June-August, so if you've been thinking of scoring one of these grills, now would be the best time.May 23, 2012 at 9:12 am #1880393

Hey Gary –
If you are still making them (and not just selling what you have already made), I was wondering if you could/would be interested in making a pint size model that could be used atop a FireFly stove or other wood burners. I'm thinking of something approximately 4.5" by 6" in size, just big enough to put a small steak over wood stove coals.May 23, 2012 at 11:46 am #1880436
After I read your post, I went down to the war room to see what I could do for you. The only ti rod I have left in the .062" diameter is 18" pieces (which have 2" of hard-to-remove paint on one end). This limited the dimensions of what I could make. I made one that ended up 4" wide x 5.75" long. If that will work for you, I would be happy to send it to you as a PIF (from one titanium geek to another!). All I need is your address, if you would kindly provide it via PM.
Great work on the Fire-Fly wood burners, Rob.
