sharpen that stick at one end. It’s probably what, just over
half an inch in thickness, that fresh tree branch. So I wouldn’t use dead wood
for this kind of project, just a piece of fresh
timber off the trees. Hi there, campers. I think one lesson when
cooking over a fire like this. Because the ground
around here is quite damp, I just let the fire burn
for a couple of hours, before we started cooking. That’s to not only dry out the
ground underneath the fire, but also to heat up the rocks. I find that if you can really
warm up the entire fireplace, the half fire circle system,
helps with smoke control. Smoke seems to just go up, if the rocks are nicely heated. Thanks for joining us on this feast. Hello there, campers. It’s the next night and
you might have wondered what we were going to do
with all the leftover pork. There was too much pork
for us to eat at once, so Christina’s just cutting it
up now into a pork adobo. So we don’t have a refrigerator here, so the best thing to do
in keeping the pork fresh is just keep it wrapped in plastic, ’cause the last thing is, you don’t want the flies getting to it. (sizzling meat) So for the last 24 hours, that pork, or that roast pork has
been in my backpack, wrapped in plastic and
now we just recook it. Perfectly safe to eat that
24 hours later, but… (sizzling meat) But I wouldn’t leave it too long though, two or three days later, you definitely wouldn’t
want to eat the pork. Thanks for watching. This is Bush Channel. (gentle, uplifting music) – [Voiceover] Keep it safe and always make sure you fully extinguish your campfire, before packing up and
leaving your campsite. (sprinkling water over fire) (pouring water)
