We have used a similar method for a couple of years, for a
Thanksgiving turkey dinner, but also for ham. It should work
for anything you want to cook slowly.
We use three or four "columns" of charcoal held in place by
chickenwire around a metal stake. The meat hangs by a chain
from a metal tripod in the center of the cooking area. The
whole thing is wrap with aluminum foil to a height of about
feet. As the charcoal burns down, add a few briquets at
We usually put the turkey in one of the heavy duty plastic
roasting bags to keep in the juices. This is supported by a
wire basket that is hooked to the chain.
This becomes essentially a large oven. You can back bread or rolls
just by placing the pans inside the cooking area.
Now I am getting hungry!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you scouts and scouters. And let's
remember how much we all to be thanksful for.
