This is my pic of my starting materials in the dakota fire hole before I started the fire. On the left side, there is paper, and oen the right, there is a bit of my kindling sticking out.
This is a pic of my fire started in the dakota fire pit that I built!
This is a picture of additional wood that I added to my dakota fire hole!
This is a picture of my salad sauteeing over the dakota fire stove; the spinach is wilting in tghsi picture, which i think counts as showing food is actively cooking. Also, the salad looks kind of shiny, too, because I was able to melt the coconut oil with my dakota fire pit and coat the salad with melted coconut oil!
While at the 2019 PEPJamboree, I dug a Dakota stove at Arrakis, and cooked some veggies in olive oil.
[Edit/add: In hindsight, I would have made the burn tunnel longer, as my arrangement had some "wrong chimney" problems. But...this was the third spot I'd tried to dig that day, and so I wasn't even sure the ground would permit the stove to be dug.]

Isn't it cool? It was a scrapyard find. I was walking around looking for something completely different and I saw it out of the corner of my eye. It was upside down and rusted and covered in a bunch of iron pipes all willy nilly. I hauled it out and I was like, "this is salvageable." There were a few guys around me and the moment I picked it up I could see them kicking themselves. One guy crossed the yard to congratulate me. It was just one of those moments. I seasoned it in a bonfire and lemme tell you that was hair-raising.
