As you are all probably aware, when we purchased he camper we purchased a charcoal grill for the cooking. Well this time out we forgot about the charcoal. If your thinking rookie mistake. Maybe…or was it? 

It started like this. Marinated chicken.. Let’s do a little farther back. 

Since breakfast I had been preparing coals

I would build up the fire, and stack up the coals. I carried on with this all day. I Had a nice pile, and not a single mosquito. 

When the time came all of my ashes got shoveled up and placed in the grill.

Once I added the chicken and pineapple rings, it hit me.  I had a smoker ready to go a few feet away.

The transition was really easy and we were off to pineapple smoked chicken!

This practice shortly evolved into cooking all of dinner over the campfire.

It all concluded with some of the best chicken I’ve ever created.
