I wasn't sure where to post this, but since I use it as an ermergency back up plan, others may too.

As a Civil War reenactor and camp cook, I need to be able to feed the boys, come sunshine or pouring rain. I used to worry about being able to cook in a downpour (and have done it quite a few times, but its no fun and not easy). A couple years ago I came upon this little gem.

Its a replica of a Revolutionary war/War of 1812 charcoal brazier. Next to it is a "1-2-3 Miracle Blaze" charcoal brick that fits perfectly inside the brazier. These bricks are about 2" thick and last about 2 hours.




Here it is with the charcoal brick, ready to light:



It is very sturdy and has 4 large feet on the top that lets you set a big DO or skillet on it. The top grate folds down and is great for cooking a nice steak. Its quite compact, only about 9" wide overall and 8" tall. I keep a still-wrapped charcoal brick inside it when transporting, so it takes up very little extra room.

So now when the rain comes, I set this up under the fly and set my DO on it and can make a nice hot pot of stew and keep the boys happy, no matter how much it rains.

There are a couple different companies that make these reproduction braziers. Mine is very well built and even has a handle so it can be moved with hot coals in it.

Thought this might be a helpful tip for someone else.

Where do you get the charcoal brick?

Best,

I bought about 8 of them at a Food Lion grocery store last year. They are a chain in the mid Atlantic states. I looked again recently, but didn't see them. Maybe do a google search for "miracle blaze". Maybe you can order them. online
