Default Not BBQ - Pron Practice, Hearth style

I parlayed a rare work from home event into 'cooking in the hearth day'.
Nothing fancy, but I was proud to pull it off, as I rarely sit still in the house. I was also proud that I actually had Grains of Paradise on hand for my Alton Brown Lentil soup. . .

Thanks for looking.

Man, I would love something like that fireplace. You made a fine looking winter meal in that hearth.

Yelonutz: me either, but, then again, I don't drink any less

Great set up. I love my Dutch Ovens with or w/o legs...
I use them all the time.
I did a 3# Roast with all the trimmings for supper in a large D.O. (Stovetop) Cast Iron cooks great.
I like the photos too...

I am most gratefull.
Pictures of your Hearth took me back to some interesting times. about 55 years
Old house, with the very basics,packed earth/straw front room that had a hearth like in your pictures.
Always had a pot of something old and tough simmering away and a huge cast iron kettle.
I could go back to that in an instant,

Looks delicious! Some things are soooooo long forgotten.
Cool set-up, really like the tongs. I am a sucker for anything cooked over wood fire.
I plan on having an arm like that over our Tuscan grill. (Brick smoker project thread)

Did u use more than one dutch oven, or soup first, then chicken, finally shrimp?
Must have been really fun, guessing it took the better part of the day to cook it all?

Beef knows of my project... Awesome none the less!
