Why make a mess in your indoor kitchen when you can build your own fire pit and eat like a cowboy in the open air? There is something about roasting suckling pig on a spit, duck on a rope, or just chestnuts over a handmade fire pit that makes eating with friends and family even more special. Here are a dozen different cooking methods and nearly a hundred recipes. Learn how to cook beef, pork, and lamb, as well as vegetables, seafood, and eggs, in traditional European and American Southwestern styles, above and sometimes directly in the embers. When you take your family camping, brew your own coffee in the morning and make Brandy Punch at night. The book includes a list of equipment, including different types of firewood, and detailed instructions. Whether you’re a veteran outdoor cook or a novice hungry for adventure, you’ll fall in love with these rewarding methods.
The first item in this book the other half and I got excited about is the goulash in a big dutch oven over a open fire. Nothing could be better then this. It is our go to recipe in this book. We have our own of making it too since he is Czech with both his parents who grew up in Czech too. This book is so versatile with a plethora of vegetables, meats, breakfasts, and even bread you can make over an open fire. Next time we go camping this book is going with. The recipes are amazing! Who knew cooking over an open fire could be so fun. Now, I have to go buy stock in cast iron and dutch ovens for cooking. It’s a good excuse to get outdoors and get new cookware.
