Criss-Cross Fire

 

A crisscross fire, or council fire, is one of the best fire lays for cooking. This fire produces a large, deep bed of coals and is easy to maintain for long periods. It is built with layers of fuel crisscrossed at right angles to each other. To make a crisscross fire, place two logs on the ground parallel to each other. Place you tinder in between the two logs. Lay the logs on the fire in layers, one layer crossing the other. Leave a little space between each log for air to circulate. Finish with a few small logs on top, and simply add more logs as needed.
