This is an article that explains how to make a perfect cooking fire when camping. It explains how to judge the heat of the fire to what wood you should use to make a proper fire. Tom Watson explains that there are different ways to set up your fire for different jobs and that there are different woods for different jobs.
This article was very informative as I didn't know that there was a difference between woods or that you could judge the temperature of the fire with your hand.
I would recommend this article to anyone going camping and are going to be cooking on a wood fire. This article will help you make better camp fire food without having to go through trial and error.
