Re-read this I never said anything about a Dutch Oven! Hang the meat from the chain on a hook! BBQ= heat+ meat+ fire & smoke.

This style of cooking is an ancient one used by Indigenous peoples all over the word. I have cooked venison & antelope this way on several occasions.

I would use the tripod and grate just as you planned directly over the fire (adjust temp by height of grate over the fire). Then just use your pan turned upside down over the meat on top of the grate. The smoke can enter inside the pan through the grate. The pan creates a smoke chamber (like the inside of a UDS) and helps hold a consistent temp on all sides of the meat. Worse case drill a hole in the pan and use an adjustable magnet to control the air outlet (and possibly help regulate the temp inside the "smoke chamber"). Easy and simple. Why do you need a bottom to the pan?

Brisket would not be something I would do over an open campfire, not saying it can't be done. I have always wanted to try steaks placed directly on wood embers. How about a chicken hung from a string off to one side of the fire and give it a twist every so often so it rotates, this is how it was done way back when. Just make sure to pack some tube steaks.

Go to second page look for Phubars post, I think it is post # 23, anyway that is what I am talking about, just scaled down a bit.

Default Tripod Smoker

Ok, I've had my beer and have enough courage to enter the fray.

I'm combining Mdboatbum and Bludawgs ideas.

You've got the tripod set over the burned down embers of oak, hickory or cherry, meat on the grill grate. Wrap the tripod in aluminum foil (maybe double wrap), from just below the meat, up to the top, leaving a hole in the middle of the tee-pee for exhaust.

I think you've got a smoker.

Well now I'm inspired. I want to try out both these ideas. I've been building a camping smoker for this season but maybe I won't even need it...

Default Campfire smoker?

Don't know if you have access to one or not but a smoke jumpers burn over blanket would work perfect for wrapping the tripod with and you could reuse it.

I see lots of good ideas here. I think my favorite is the wrapped tripod method. I saw this online it's a disposable mylar thermal blanket. The cost works out to a little over a buck a piece.
