Simple Fireplace Ideas For Outdoor Cooking

Central open fire in Samlesbury Hall (UK). The Fire was on a stone plynth so it would not burn the floor, a metal cradle was across the stone to carry a kettle and hold the fire in place. Logs were stacked into the centre. The fire was then surrounded by worought iron fixtures for holding the meat which was rotated to cook on all sides, "done to a turn".
