Fire techniques for cooking

When cooking outdoors over an open fire, employing the correct techniques is essential for achieving the best results.

It's all about adapting to the outdoor conditions. This might mean using a small amount of wood or a larger quantity to generate intense heat.

One of my top tips is to use smaller pieces of wood, which allows for better control of the heat when needed.

The direction of the wind is also a crucial factor.

Taking this into account is necessary for optimal results. When cooking outdoors, the wind can influence the fire's heat.

To minimize the wind's impact, you can construct a windbreak using nearby firewood or stones. This helps maintain a consistent fire temperature and prevents excessive flickering.

Alternatively, you can purchase ready-made windshields.
