When cooking this Cast Iron Fish Recipe with a campfire,  I like to use “tweezers” to arrange the campfire logs and coals. Tweezers provide more control than just using a fire poker or shovel. You’ll want to keep your campfire flames roaring to keep you warm but more controlled for cooking.

Be careful when handling hot cast iron camp cooking equipment! I like using Heat Resistant Gloves that extend well above my wrists. These are especially handy when cooking over a campfire which is much hotter than cooking with a camp stove or RV stove.
