    I've been finding it surprisingly easy to set an old all-metal, no-coated-handles, covered pot on the coals/ashes and cook in a barrel, this spring...but I'm not quite up for baking right *in* the ashes.

    Another way you can bake is to place a flat faced rock in the fire before lighting & bake on the rock.

    I really, really, like that Keith posts pictures of his 150 + year old skills.
    Might come in very handy and happy to see those that keep these ways in today's world.
    Note the "hawk" in his belt.
    (hawk; NOT a bird.) :>)

    I have a hawk that I carry when hunting with muzzle loaders or modern arms.
    A handy tool indeed.

    A small metal tray added to your kit placed above coals makes these cakes cleanly i allso use a 8in square pan with 2in sides this cover makes a cake corn bread bread the old ways work yes but with modern gear you can do alot better i have a old metal sand shovel i use to move coals from fire to cook spot at side of fire

    I agree about the ashes part.

    I mean, I'd do it if I had no other choice. But, to me, I like my food a little clean.
