Front Runner Outfitters Expands Camp Cooking Lineup With New Box Braai/BBQ Grill

Stemming from cultural cooking tradition, South African adventure vehicle outfitter releases portable open-fire grill for sharing meals in the backcountry


LOS ANGELES (Oct. 13, 2021) — Front Runner Outfitters (Front Runner), the South African-based adventure travel gear company known for dependable, innovative, and thoughtfully designed overlanding and camping equipment, launches the Box Braai/BBQ Grill. The new free-standing fire pit-style grill offers users an easy-to-transport, space-saving design and enables campers to safely cook over an open fire.

In South Africa, a “braai” is a traditional social gathering that brings people together to cook, eat and celebrate for any occasion throughout the year. By using an open flame to prepare the meal, a braai grill stands as both a gathering place and a tool to cook the food to be shared and enjoyed together. With the Box Braai/BBQ Grill (MSRP $193 USD), taking this philosophy to the backcountry for off-grid adventures in a vehicle is easier than ever.

Following in the footsteps of the spare- tire-mounted Braai Grill, the Box Braai/BBQ Grill is a dual-purpose cooking tool that gives campers the ability to cook meals over an open flame and provide warmth on chilly evenings. This new collapsible grill provides users the ability to cook and have a fire without leaving a trace, for safe grilling anywhere.

Designed to collapse flat to 1.5 inches and fit inside a Wolf Pack storage container, the Box Braai/BBQ Grill is constructed of durable 3CR12 stainless steel to provide a high degree of rust and corrosion resistance. The laser-cut pieces slide together easily to construct a free-standing fire pit base that elevates the flame off the ground, while the sides of the grill provide a wind break in gusty conditions.


With two removable grill grates and included grid lifting tools, transitioning from fire pit to grill is easy and provides added functionality to adjust the coals beneath while cooking. When both grill grates are installed, the 295-square-inch surface makes cooking easy for both small and large groups.

The Front Runner Box Braai/BBQ Grill is available now, directly from or through your local Front Runner official dealer.
