I have seen many people struggle to cook over a campfire. The problem is that they try to cook over fire as opposed to coals. The trick is to make hot coals as quickly as possible, and then feed them from a fire at the side. The secret is the log cabin approach to fire building. Old Boy Scouts may swear by the teepee, but nothing makes a good bed of coals faster than a log cabin. The cabin also acts as a chimney, and you heat the pot before the coals are ready. Adjust the height of pot over the fire to get the desire temperature.
