One of the things that draws me to outdoor cooking is the immense history of it. A long time ago, some wild beast ended up on a fire and it was good. Ever since, we’ve been trying new things to make the experience even better.
Sometimes in our rush toward newness, we leave behind some things that were good. Whether it’s because tastes changed, ingredients became scarce, it they just disappeared, these recipes are worth trying again.
That’s where Jas. Townsend and Son comes in. Jas. Townsend and Son has been supplying period authentic clothing, cookware, and accessories to the re-enactor market for 35 years. They specialize in products from 1750 to 1840. That’s not really my thing, but they do a fantastic job of showing how to use their products in their YouTube videos. Their 18th century cooking series has kept me glued to my screen for a few weeks now.
Here are a few video samples of recipes that I think would be fun to try:
