Hay box cooking

Take one large dixie and fill it with browned chicken and onions,
chopped carrots, stock and soup and seasonings. Make sure it is full
to the brim and bring it to a rollicking boil on a wood fire.

Line a tea chest with newspaper, bubblewrap, anything else old and
insulatory. Add a layer of hay. Put the dixie into the chest and pack
around with more hay, newspaper, pillows, whatever you have to fill
the gaps. When absolutely full, fond something to use as a lid and
weight it down.

Spend several hours shouting at Guides who try to use the logs to burn
at lunchtime. If not doing this with Guides, this step may be safely

Leave to mature for 4-8 hours.

Unpack tea chest with oohs and aahs from the Guides, and bring out a
dixie full of piping hot tender chicken stew.

Debate repeating process overnight for porridge but run out of steam.
