Default Cooking on the campfire

On our last two trips we cooked on the campfire. I like it. I've been lugging around a big bag of real charcoal and am trying to use it up





Anyone here do much cooking on the campfire?

I use a wood fired grill, by Snow Peak. I have been using "Real" charcoal lately also.

Well, we went camping with two other couples. Stayed out late, working on a couple photography projects, and didn't get a chance to use the BBQ. The group ended up cooking on a propane burner, for time savings. The food was still good, but none of that smokey flavor.

No photos.

Was the propane burner a jet burner?
If it's edible, it works.
Too bad you couldn't mesquite the meat.

I wish we had time to fire up the wood BBQ.

"Jet Burner"?

I camped out 14 times this year and cooked over the fire one time. It was just the basic hot dogs on a stick cooking over the fire. We also had marshmallows. It was fun and I need to it more often next year. Some good looking pictures on this thread!

Although this is a pic of the prototype and taken in my back yard, it does work well over the over camp fire. .
Need a hot fire and rotate a quarter turn at a time. Compact and easy to use. Working on modifications and improvements.

Anything cooked on a rotisserie is awesome!

If you start cooking like that at campsites you will instantly have lots of friends

Cooking in the wild like that can also have challenges from the wildlife. I roasted some chicken breasts on my grill while camping in Denali NP last summer. After I put the chicken on my plate a Bluejay dove in and flew away with one of the chicken pieces.
