And periodically open it up to see how your meal is cooking. Placing the pie iron directly in the fire often results in very burned bread which tastes really bad. You just want a nice browned color to your bread.

Also, if it hasn't been said already, I'd caution against buying any aluminum pie irons. They are pretty worthless, they don't cook the food well, and they quickly warp to the point that they don't seal up well and then constantly burn the food.

Here's a photo of a holder - it can hold a refreshing beverage too, although I don't particularly like hot beer!
The apparatus is pretty cool by the way. Arm hair would be far from the fire.

Those things are nice!

x2 on an Camp Dutch Oven. You can cook anything in one of these. Dessert is my favorite use so far, but a good stew or chili is a very close second.

If you want to keep the weight down, invest in the aluminum type.

After you get a good fire going, try some of this. Yummy.

Does it drip out of the pie iron?
