How To Build A Swamp Fire Or Raised Fire

Build a tripod, with three horizontal lats near the base, which will form the floor foundation.
Securely tie the tripod top.
Square lash the horizontal lats.
Fix a 'green' pot hook into the tripod. Make sure it is secure but will also swing out the way of the flames when not in use.
Partially completed floor of wet timber ideally.
Fully completed floor of wet timber ideally.
Several inches of soil with a slight central depression. Aim to have the soil base double the size of the fire base.
The beginning of a fire lay, as per normal.
Fire under way, with pot hook out of the way when not in use.
