In emergencies with no power, I've cooked many meals in fireplaces.
I generally use a D.O. or Iron Skillet. Sometimes I cook in foil packets.
Whatever I cook in a fireplace I do it with an eye on whats easier
to clean up afterwards.
I keep an old 'Cowboy Coffee Pot' for those emergencies too.
I use an antique Iron grate from a Moonshine operation, that I hauled out of the woods in the 70s (Their loss...)
A swing arm in the fireplace would be better, but you use what you've got.
