Fire Pit Cooking

I've always loved to cook over a fire! I had been using a grill out of a John Deere skid steer and some concrete blocks for my pit. I decided as much as we use it we should make a nice area and pit to cook and sit around. We spent the entire weekend cooking on it and had a great time! This was a breakfast Bacon, eggs, hash browns and one of my all time favorites dutch oven biscuits.

For Sunday dinner my 8 year old dispatched and butchered a rabbit we then wrapped in bacon and spit roasted it. I cut up some sweet potatoes and apples and cooked them in the dutch oven. It was such a fine weekend I can't wait for the next time.

Nice pit!

Love seeing that I am not the only one still using the old "black pot".

Awesome to see a youngster that can feed his own from the land too!

Kudos sir.

Oh what did you use to plug the whole in the center of that disc? A piece of similar thickness plate or ?

They/disc can be found brand new, pre-drilled/ undrilled in many forms and sizes with some searching .

Trust me here JB as I have done it many times .

They can be store bought pre-built too .

It just depends on if you want to get your hands dirty or not .

It was a tame rabbit, I gave $9.00 for him at the feed store.

My foot is still sore

I welded in circles with my mig until the hole was filled and ground it flat with a grinder. We use it all the time best outdoor pan I've ever had!

Oh I know. I used to get them from a neighbor when he replaced the ones on his implements. He ordered them by the pallet. Around here, I moved, you can't buy them individually though.

Nice job. It just didn't look as if that was the way it had been done. I figured you had used a patch piece due to how smooth it is.

Thanks! I've spent a day or two with a stinger in my hand.

We cooked outside tonight but not on the fire pit. I caught a string of white bass early this morning. My wife made hushpuppies and we had some frozen okra and fries to go with it. Only thing that would have made it better was if i had a fresh wild turkey breast and a mess of morels to fry up with it. I love spring!

Hash, have you folks ever raised rabbits other than the wild babies that were found while bush hogging ?

Their turds makes a very good fertilizer too .
