How To Cook Over Campfire?

Postby mattyness » Thu Jun 20, 2019 10:51 am

Ok...So I've been looking at a lot of different ways to cook. I've looked at buying a stove, making my own alcohol stove (which I have made 3 today, trying out different designs and finally got a side burner to work without going out when I put my pot on it), and cooking over a campfire.

Today I bought the Coleman Aluminum Mess Kit:

It was cheap and it looked like it would work.

Anyways, besides using an alcohol stove to boil water and cook meals, is it possible to get a campfire going, then grab some coals out of the fire and set the pot, pictured above, on the coals to boil water? I want to avoid setting the pot (or anything else pictured above) directly into the fire.

I have this entire trip planned out and it is coming down to being able to prepare meals and have water. I think I'm sort of getting too worked up about this entire thing. I want to be 100% prepared and know everything I will need to know but it is all so confusing.

My motto is if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right, and that's what I'm attempting to do.

Please help me
