Set Up Your Zones
Push your fire to one side, then split up the other side with your larger rocks. Each section should we wide enough to fit the width of your pot/pan/whatever, and deep enough to add coals, then rest your pan on top.
Scoop or push some of your coals into one of the sections, then scoop or push a whole bunch more into the other section.
We’ll use one section to create a medium heat, and the other section to create a high heat. The more and deeper the coals, the higher the heat.
Don’t scoop away all of your coals. You want to keep your fire going so it continues to churn out more coals for you.
Take your smaller rocks and flat rocks and use them to balance your skillet, pots, pans, wire racks, whatever, over the sections of medium heat and high heat. The high heat section works best with the cast iron skillet for cooking meat. The medium heat works best with wire racks and sheet pans for cooking vegetables and such.
Now it’s time to add your food and get cooking.
