How To Build A Cooking Fire

Contrary to what you might think, cooking over a campfire doesn't mean you're starting a fire with roaring flames and then putting your cast-iron skillet or foil right on top. Instead, you want to light a small fire until you get hot coals. \"Hot coals will give your food nice smoky flavor, without blackening it,\" says Dylan Eyers of Eat Wild. Lay two super-dry sticks (1\" max in diameter) parallel over the lit tinder. Feed in more sticks parallel as they burn to create surface area for flames to catch.
