How do you guys do it? I have just wrapped my food in foil and tossed it in the fire but have had problems with sand and dirt getting in the food. What do you guys use?

I am thinking of building a small metal box that I can toss my food it wrapped in foil to keep the dirt out.

I've done the foil before, but i prefer to use pot/pans on a grill over the fire. Or just cook on the grill.

If you're going to do an actual pit.

Dig the hole first. Needs to be as close to three feet as you can get it. In Texas that's usually 1 to 2 feet.

Start a fire making sure to find some good sized rocks to put in the fire itself, but make sure they are still accessible.

Shovel coals and rocks from the fire into the pit, place foil wrapped meat and veggies in the hole on top of the coals. Add more rocks and coals and bury. Dig up 12 hours later at dinner time.

I've always had off results, it will cook your food though.

I've seen people use dutch ovens in the same fashion.

I had one too but after one to many times of it collapsing I gave up. It wasn't that exact one but close. Mine was round.

My buddy does it all the time on our desert trips, but his dad made a campfire grill out of some rebar and then used some parts from an old grill. Welded it all together and you have yourself an instant campfire grill. you gotta be quick though because the fire cooks stuff too fast, usually...

There's definitely an art to it.
