When you use a grate over the coals treat it as a grill, steaks or burgers direct or set it off to one side for indirect grilling. when i use the dutch oven or foil wrapped items I set them off to one side and use it like an oven except the heat is off to one side instead of below. Anything you would do in a weber you can do here........ I typically do steaks or chicken breasts or roasts, sometimes a bacon wrapper wild turkey breast in the foil is good but I add some chicken broth in the foil. On a weekend morning i sometimes wrap venison steaks and bacon in foil and go about my business for a bit and come back for a simple breakfast. Experiment with it and you will enjoy it.

Fireplace cooking is actually roasting. You put the meat in front of the fire. With barbecue, you cook with meat suspended over the coals and no flame. Broling is accomplished with meat over flames or very close to hot coals.

Some of the best food I've had was cooked in the fireplace during power outages. No special equipment, just well-placed logs and aluminum foil.

Thanks everyone. Seems like my idea is one that many have had luck with. I am going for it this coming weekend. I have a Dutch oven, cast pans, a camping grill (grate with legs) and a large cast griddle. I have to get used to working that close to the ground, but I think that this could be a great start to something. Thanks again!

Chuck roast and veggies in my great grandmothers cast iron with red oak in the fire. First time doing it this way but will not be my last.

That looks awesome. I am glad I asked about this. Apparently "all of the cool kids are doing this."

It is easier that most people realize.
Two things that I did not see posted
1. Depending on your flue (I have a cast iron flue in my Isokern) you may be able to clip an S hook and a length of chain to hang dutch ovens. I have found that helps to be able to slide the pot closer to fire if needed.
2. Try screwing a screw-eye into your ceiling and suspend a chicken on a string. Dont forget a pan for drippings. spin the chicken every 10 minutes or so and keep a hot fire.
