I would "teach what I know"... Open flame is fine, but is harder for
both beginner adults AND boys.... Usually the best "open flame" is when
the fire is down to coals... So what is different from charcoal..
As far as "old" vs "new" sylabus of WoodBadge, it isn't the sylabus, it
is more the decisions of the Staff. In SR-71 we used the propane stoves
and a minor amount of charcoal. The previous course in 1989, was done
with "only" charcoal. The first rule is "every WoodBadge course is different".
So your friend's is not the "definitive" right way any more than yours.
They are just 2 different ways of doing cooking.
In our SM fundamentals we generally do a bunch of dutch oven stuff plus
some charcoal base stuff.
Do what you think is best. A good presentation of what you know beats a
lousy one of what you don't know.
