Every once in a while you need a liquid diet.

That was 2019 Colorado elk first rifle. We drew tags in unit 75. We saw elk, but no luck.

I like that cinder block setup!  Cinder blocks are second in versatility only to duct tape!  :cheesy:

There are many ways to cook steaks outdoors, and the best method for you will depend on your personal preferences and the equipment that you have available. Here is one way to cook steaks outdoors:

    Preheat a grill to high heat.
    Pat the steaks dry with paper towels and season them with your desired seasonings (salt, pepper, herbs, etc.)
    Place the steaks on the hot grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, longer for desired level of doneness.
    Remove the steaks from the grill and let them rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

This method will produce delicious juicy steaks with a nice char on the outside. As a recommendation, try cooking outside. You can also use a stovetop grill pan or a cast iron skillet to achieve similar results.

Hot coals are the best for any cooking.  A rocket stove is too hot, though if used indoors, it is a lot less smoky.  Cast iron and hot coals.

Built a rocket stove a few years ago for a bit of fun.

Great for cooking a stir fry or searing a steak but as Michael said, too hot for a slow cook.

Most of my camp cooking is done on a stove that I made from an old gas cylinder. It?s outstanding for all types of cooking. As you can see from the photo, it is well used.

Agreed.  Great for stir fry or boiling water quickly but difficult not to burn other things.

The steaks and shrimp cooked the first video looked pretty good to me! lol 

30wfcs' hot coal method looked to be producing some mouth watering delicacies as well!

What did you all think of SaltyCrackers method of cooking whole catfish?

Codetalkers' method of cooking steaks sounds great also!

The15Members agreement of the quick and easy way on cinderblocks sounds like a winner as well!  As pictured by 30wfc

The setups pictured by Lesgold was interesting and original!

Are there others which might like to contribute with more or interesting ideas of cooking outdoors, or chime in perhaps?

Most of my outdoor cooking is in a tipi on the fire in the middle.  Most of it is on coals, though coffee is often on the flames before they die down to coals.  Fires are small and every effort is made to keep them smokeless so they are either flames or coals.  If there is smoke it's not good.

Now those ducks you got, I would wrap in wet clay (gutted but still with feathers) and cook them in the coals.  When you pull off the clay the feathers and skin come right off with the clay.  :)  Juicy and delicious.

I have heard about that, but I've never tried it. I would certainly like to try it.
