Camp Cooking Over An Open Fire:
This is a common mistake with people who are new to campfire cooking. They assume the hottest part of the fire would be the raging flames. But this is not necessarily the case. If you are truly wanting to cook something, not just burn the outside, then you want a more consistent heat. To make the best fire for cooking, start with seasoned hardwood, let it burn down to those white hot coals, pile them up under your grill grate and let it work for you. Cast iron is a necessity if you are cooking over an open flame. It will never get ruined, if you season it well the flavor of cooking on cast iron is amazing. We like to have a dedicated cooking area, so moving the HOT white coals to one side as the fire is still going on next to it..
