36 37 Cooking outdoors back to the old ways Cooking on an outside fire is a culinary experience all of its own. Youll need a stout pair of knees or some sort of low furniture and, unless youre happy with your pot of stew occasionally rolling off the logs and depositing its contents into the ashes, youll need some form of iron mongery. Most blacksmiths will know how to make a trivet. The tradi tional design consists of 3 or 6 horseshoes welded together into a flat pan base with 3 legs, 8 inches or more in length. A traditional gypsy fire would see an iron tripod with a chain and hook, all the pans and kettles having appropriate handles, the advantages of this design being the ability to adjust the height of your vessel from the flames. If youre not fussy, a traditional hippie bodge is a couple of bricks and an oven grill, barbecue style. When youve secured your cooking pot above the flames use small sticks to bring it to the boil and gradually feed in larger logs for the constant heat needed to keep it bubbling. The majority of your kitchen items are best kept off the ground or in a metal container if youre stopped for any length of time, as any hint of food will soon attract rodents. Some form of rack or even an old hammock may prove useful for short term food and utensil storage. As for metal containers, army surplus ammunition boxes, if rain proof, are ideal. Various ingenious devices can be obtained to suspend your cooking vessels above the flames of an open fire.
