Campfire


We went camping last weekend and the campground had
recycled old tubs from washer's to contain the fire at the campsites.
I thought it was a good idea.

Re: Campfire


I've also seen old truck rims used for fire pits. They work pretty good too.

That is a 100% accurate statement

Build a nice hardwood fire. let it go to coals, throw a grill on top and it make a pretty good BBQ.

We do something similar around here called bean hole beans. Essentially dig a hole in the ground, have a big fire and let it go to coals. Get the bean pot with your wicked good recipe and bury it. Sometimes for days. The best beans on the planet. Man, now I'm hungry

Re: Campfire


Same idea as a lobster pot, but for beans. Yeah...we name our pots.



Don't ask me, I'm just following what everyone else here calls it. Ever hear of a front door yard? The guys out in Seattle used to laugh at me about that one.

To be safe, you just have to go up into the "hills"... anything 3 ft. above sea level.

Re: Campfire


I didn't know any better...and the other guys didn't say shiiite...I actually found out before we went back in that that was it for me...we came upon a dead gator almost as long as the boat...that was it for me.

It didn't seem to make any difference to the guys from fl though...wtf?
