Today starts a good, lengthy series on cooking in a campfire. Although this is something not everyone will have a chance to do, it is pretty cool, and a campfire has certain culinary advantages that other forms of cooking do not. Most notably, campfire cooking is done primarily in aluminum foil, which forms a tight pouch for foods to slowly steam and retain their juices once the initial cooking process begins.
But we’ll get into all that as we go. First, we start our fire. Pyromania! Enjoy this series. I promise we will go way beyond the s’more – going all the way to roasting a whole chicken over the open fire.
