    This is a great example that should be printed, sealed and put in everyone's B.O. bag because we can be forgetful under pressure.......

    I have even used some of those. I once roasted a brook trout using that Indian method of a y stick cradle roticery and a trout on a stick.

    Great poster! My husband and I also tried one called a Canadian Candle. Put a log of decent diameter on its end. Cut down the centre about halfway making two cuts like a + sign. Stuff your twigs, leaves and other small kindling at the bottom of the + and light it. The inside of the log hollows out and burns as you set your pot on the top of the log like you would set it on a cook stove. I'll try to upload my picture of me making stew on it!

    Same here Shaunda. As a kid growing up in Minnesota we would call them "Lumberjack" candles. We would also cheat somewhat and saturate the insides with a bit of fuel mix we had for the chainsaws we used to cut the slots with. They would burn all night and well into the next day!
