Be sure to check out the tripod lashing post HERE to use with this Pot Hanger
If you use a bush pot or any style pot for your cooking platform while cooking over a fire, a pot hanger is probably one of the best items you can make to make your cooking experience as smooth as possible. While there are may ways to build a pot hanger I chose the method below as I believe it is the most adjustable and effective for my applications. While the traditional pot hanger will hang the pot directly from a notch I utilize the notch for hooking the hanging rope via a slip not which eliminates the need to touch a potentially hot bail.
I have included pictures of the way I may my pot hangers and also an info-graphic on how to make a traditional pot holder. First you must find and select a "V" style
1) Cut a 90 degree cut into the log 1/2" to 1" from the top of the log opposite the "V" portion of the log.
4) A view of the notches which create your adjustable height of your pot. I actually added another notch to this pot holder recently at the base of the "V" for one more level of adjustment.
