I'm becoming a outdoor cooking affectionado, especially on an open campfire, so much that I even put a fire pit in the back yard! I love to do these when we are camping. (My trick is to put the potatoes just off of the campfires hottest coals before we settle in for the night, in the morning if they are not done they are at least almost done so that a quick stint in the hot coals will get them totally cooked. BUT DONT DO THIS if you are in a place where you are in danger of a major fire if you leave the fire going all night. We have a pit with no chance of it spreading so what I do is safe.)
