The Secret to Great Campfire Cooking Is a Little Patience.

Bonfires are arguably the best part of camping, and cooking is always fun. But it is easy to lose patience when you are hungry and see a flame dancing in a hole. Patience is key if you want to make the most delicious cooking on an open fire.

As Megan Sploon of The Kitchen explains, trying to cook food too early on a fire is one of the biggest mistakes tourists make. You may have a roaring fire, but that doesn’t mean it’s ready to roast your hot dogs and marshmallows. You want your fire to burn to hot coals that provide more intense and even heat. I know it’s hard to wait, but give the fire 30 to 45 minutes after it’s lit before trying to cook anything on it. Once you have a hot coals bed, you are in business.
