I have used 2 ways.
1. Dutch Oven. Here is my instruction sheet.
* Spices to taste
1. Dutch Oven
Put oil in skillet and put over coals to heat up.
When hot add popcorn and cover with lid.
Rotate oven every minute so no hot spots develop.
When popping slows down remove Dutch oven from fire and wait until
Remove lid and pour into bowl.
Add seasonings(salt, exc.)
Wipe Dutch oven with paper towel to remove corn pieces.
If more is wanted repeat above instructions.
Do NOT put salt into the Dutch oven.
2. The second way is to simply put mutter or margarine onto a sheet of
aluminum foil and pour on the popcorn. Then Bring the corners up to make
a pyramid and fold/seal the edges. Tie top point to a stick and have
boys hold over the fire. If you use too much popcorn the sides split and
the boys know it is done.
