Advanced Camp Fire Cookery

It is hard to describe the perfect cooking fire but follow these steps and you'll do okay.  It is better to cook over a low fire with good coals.  For the best results start the fire about one hours ahead of cooking time and have enough wood on hand to keep the fire going for how ever long you are planning on cooking.  Here are a couple or pictures to illustrate different kinds of fire.
