Many Fine Mornings

Many Fine Mornings Have Started This Way
Many Fine Mornings Have Started This Way

I’m proud to say that many fine mornings have started this way for me, mostly in the Spring and Fall months when the weather calls to me to start the day with coffee over a fire.

A Solid, Country Breakfast
A Solid, Country Breakfast Is The Right Choice

And then, once my blood stream has been returned to its properly caffeinated state, I and my family like a hearty, country style breakfast cooked over and eaten around that same fire.

And yes, even though I and my family live in Brooklyn, this is a common breakfast scenario for us. I’ve got a good-sized grill/offset smoker out front and a smaller pit grill in our rear court. Both charcoal, not freaking gas or those pellet things. Proper charcoal as the God(s) intended. 😉

It’s all part of being who you are and doing what you love, irrespective of where you find yourself at any given time.

    That looks amazing, jonolan. It's just gotten cold here in South Carolina (literally, the cold weather hit Friday morning), and I'd love to build a little fire pit in the yard for cooking over an open flame.

    Thanks. And yes, this sort of thing of a morning, especially when you know the day will be stressful, is a godsend.

    And, as I've proven, you can do it almost anywhere.

    Seriously–if you can do it in Brooklyn (!), I can definitely pull it off on my half-acre in South Carolina. What kind of fire pit do you recommend or use?

    Oh, man, that skillet of fried eggs just motivated me to cook the same for myself this morning. With coffee of course.

    Tyler, I've no specific suggestions. There's just too many choices and too many particular individual situations/desires/needs.

    I use a low, mortared, firebrick "pit" that I made and put my "camp" ironwork to use in it. I quoted "camp" because it's made for Buckskinning?RevWar/SCA events.

    Thanks, J. I've got a good bit of space, but I would like something manageable and easy-to-use. I appreciate it!
