First memory of campfire cookery
...as a young kid with a freshly caught catfish, inexperiencedly filleted, cooked unevenly, on the flattest rock we could find, frequently poked with sticks for no good reason, seasoned in falling ashes and dirt, and absolutely unforgettably delicious.
Favorite memory around a bonfire
...was watching the shadows of smoke rise skyward, overlooking Fontana Lake in the Smoky Mountains.
Worst experience in the outdoors
What seemed to be the cold, unending rain camping in southeast Alaska.
Can’t wait to
...have the time and opportunity to patiently cook a whole pig underground someday.
