Navajo Traditions - Cooking over an open fire

Many times we try the same things cooked in a different way and the result is stunning, this might well be the case, thanks for sharing!

You're welcome. I love the idea of cooking over an open flame. Everything seems to taste so much better when it's cooked outdoors, and over a flame. Fire pits are very common here, and many use them to make S'mores, but others use them to cook additional items, as well. I'm seeing more fire pit cooking grills/grates, but I hope people using them are aware that they shouldn't be using treated wood or fireplace logs for that purpose, due to chemicals in those products.

We often cook over an open fire when we are camping. Last year we spent a lot of time camping at the beach so we used a lot of beach wood to cook with. It gave the food and awesome flavour.

That sounds really nice. I've never camped on the beach, just at a lake, and that was quite a while ago. I've never thought of using beach / driftwood for cooking, but maybe I should start collecting any branches I find at the beach down the street, because that sounds really amazing. I would imagine it does flavor the food, since that's why certain wood is favored over others.
