I cook most of the same stuff that I would cook on a charcoal grill, only exceptions would be bigger stuff that is better with the cover on, but I'm sure you could also do them with foil. I've done burgers, steak, ribs, chicken breasts, brats, this weekend I did chicken thighs. Start your wood fire an hour early, gets some coals built up, at the same time I put some small pieces of wood on the grate to 'sanitize it' as they burn off, let the fire die down, scrape the coals into a pile off to the side, and start grilling. Have some small pieces of wood to add to the fire to keep it going and hot, and some tin foil for the grate in case the gaps are too wide. Easy to do and you get the wood fire taste.

We make a lot of hot dogs on a stick, smores, and pie iron items like ham and cheese, fruit pies, breakfast omelets in toast. Ocassionally we'll venture into the more traditionally grilled things as well (burgers,steaks).

Anything with the cast-iron. Blackened steaks are really nice with that wood-fire flavor.

I absolutely love the Cee Dub campfire cooking show. He uses a Dutch Oven in complete silence better than anyone!

    • I've had it on a few different lakes and still the same result. I'm a tungsten jig type of person, thought those showed up better on the vex?? Bigger profile jigs show up better than small. Any type of jig is a in-out flicker. Been on some finiky fish lately,  used some very small jigs and they barely show up. I'll try the battery next! Thanks guys

    • It was doing bad under pawlenty?
    • I know I would  That bacon really looked good!!!
    • Word of caution !! Lake Superior will generate a east wind for days and the fish bite great. I think it has something to do with the air sinking out in the center and it pushes in all directions and in Duluth we get the wind out of the east.
    • This weekend I got a chance to use the 6" Nils with my Dewalt. That was crazy fast and had both of my brothers asking more questions about the whole setup. I believe the 6" cuts faster then my 8" Nils with the Tanaka motor and I thought that was fast.
    • Some possibilities in the St. Paul / SE metro area.   Joe's sporting goods in St. Paul Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale Ace Hardware in IGH   There is another bait shop off of HWY 10 in Newport, but I'm not sure if it's still there and google can't seem to find it.  I also seem to remember a gas station on Concord, south of the St. Paul Airport somewhere that has bait, but I just randomly ran into it one afternoon and I might be confused.  
    • Ya, me too.....they're extremely rare animals nowadays.. I searched (online) every hardware store, box store, Home Improvement, office supply store....zip. Only place that has them...Walmart. I suggest ya hit the used a bit and goodwill stores, they always seem to have a few. I'll keep my peepers open for ya for a good one if ya want, otherwise, get someone to order for ya off of Amazon Prime.
    • Hey everyone, had the opportunity to get out with my new jiffy 4lite propane, an Ion, and the Clam Drill plate kit (drill plate/gear box/auger with 18v Dewalt).  I was with 25 guys and I was the only one with augers. So it was the perfect time to try out all three and see what was preferred. In the end the ratings would be:   Jiffy 5/5 Ion 4/5 Clam 4/5   The propane was faster and cut the lake like a hot knife on butter. The Ion and Clam were not as fast, but were still able to cut plenty of holes without any issues. The batteries on the clam did not last as long, but if I were to buy higher amp batteries that could be solved. The Ion was slower than the other two but was consistent and did cut a lot of holes.
