The Open Hearth

At this stage in the course of these events it’s all coming together so that when the time comes I’ll be ready to whip up a tasty meal here at the fire place. Not only that but I’ll be keeping warm and smoking multiple meat items above in the smoke chamber of the chimney at the same time using the same wood.


Many pokers, tongs, haulers and lifters accompany various pots and pans which can withstand robust cooking conditions and require no washing. Hooks suspended from an iron bar integrated into the boezum construction by sometimes even decorative chain links where cooking pots hang at varying distance from the heating source for temporing and maintaining temperatures desired.


A roast on the spit? I see, (and smell), it before me in my mind’s eye but first winter has to get here and a day could enough to carry out the slaughter and butchery of pigs now to small for providing sufficient provision. So much work it will be for sure but for now there’s time until then.
