Volcano Grill
I did a search and id not find any reference to this handy piece of kit, so here we go...

This is perhaps one of the best, most useful items for the survivalist who plans to hunker down/bug in or car camp...

the volcano grill https://volcanogrills.com/volcano-3.html

The Volcano 3 Collapsible Propane Grill is the most versatile and efficient grill on the market today. From the backyard to the great outdoors, this 3-fuel cooker allows you to cook whatever you want, whenever you want.

Our most popular model for a reason, this Volcano has tri-fuel capability which sets it apart from all other outdoor cooking options. This unit combines the greatest variety of cooking options with easy portability. This Volcano collapses down to 5” and is easily transported in the included storage bag. This model can be used with Charcoal, Propane or Wood and is highly efficient.

I personally own the regular one for years now, take it camping all the time, works great, perfect for cast iron cooking too...

also makes a great fire pit...

Looks interesting, but a bit pricey for my Scotch blood.

I'd bet a clever fellow could improvise with materials found around the barn and devise a workable approximation.

When I was in Scouts we used something similar to this:

CH....

I agree, it is a bit pricey, but a well made piece of kit, that literally lasts for years under heavy use...i have used quite a bit for multi day base camp outings, feeding several folks using wood, charcoal on the grill and cast iron....very versatile....

this is more of a base camp/home set up, where is can use various fuels, cook for larger groups that a little hobo backpacking stove, which have their place..

for more mobile set ups, i use one of these: https://emberlit.com/ or https://www.solostove.com/backpacking-stoves/ and of course this piece of awesome kit: http://trangia.se/en/camping-stoves-series-25/

having multiple ways to prepare food is paramount, and i love options, plus i am kit whore..... :-)

Trangia is my favorite in the GHB. Years ago I used a Svea 123 with the auxilary pump or the similar Primus, but both of those found other homes over the years. My USGI quart canteens are all stowed in their covers with cup, Natick stand and mess kit spoon, with lifeboat matches and Aqua-Pur tabs i the external pouch.

RE: Volcano Grill
My dad gave me a Trangia when I started my DofE (http://www.dofe.org) well over twenty years ago and still use the same set now. We used Trangia's and Coleman stoves when I did my Arctic Warefare training in Norway, both got the job done.

RE: Volcano Grill
I forgot to add perhaps my all time favorite stove, had one back in the 80's and used when we went out in the field, the other fellows were pretty envious...It is a brute of a stove, but always fired up and was multi fuel...

this was civilian kit i used and not .mil issue, now i believe it is standard issue or at least made available to select troops/situations...

Coleman Exponent Multi-Fuel Stove
Get ready to cook with the Coleman Exponent 550B725 Multi-Fuel camp stove, which weighs 21.6 ounces. Fill up the integrated tank one time and use it all weekend. It operates on either Coleman fuel or unleaded gasoline, and can also operate on kerosene with an optional generator. Thanks to Coleman's PerfectFlow feature, it's regulated for a constant, consistent burn (without flaring or flickering). Other features include fold-out legs and wind-protecting burner bowel and pot supports.

Very pricey. If you don't need the portability you could buy three grills for the same price.

That price is three times the normal retail !!! The standard is $50 U.S. at most outlets.

The Coleman Expedition actually has several features going for it.

First, it will burn about any fuel you can pour into it. It does burn sooty when using diesel, everything else is fairly clean.

Second, it is not as finicky to start as many backpack stoves. Pump it up, turn the lever and lite the gas, let it flame a second then turn it down.

Third, the fuel tank holds enough fuel to cook 6-9 meals, which means one tank will last a whole three day weekend. It will also boil your cup'a in about one minute.

We have lots of places where there is access to wilderness but restrictions on building fires. A wood burning grill or even a wood burning stove is not allowed. For the backpacker the Coleman Expedition is about as close to using the kitchen "hob" as it gets in the outdoors.
