I'm Brook. Been lurking awhile, and this looks like may kind of site. Friend Wife and I are living historians, specializing in 18th century foodways. As such, we have a passion for all types of live-fire cooking. We have actually written and published two cookbooks about colonial era foodways.
As to equipment: I use, variously, a complete 18th century outdoor kitchen; a Char-Griller with offset cooker; a Char-Broil 5-burner gas grill, an Olympia portable gas grill, a no-name tabletop charcoal grill, and anything else that will burn wood, charcoal, or gas.
