Following the success of the pit cooking of Roe Deer and Wild Boar during the primitive skills course at the beginning of May, a friend asked me to cook a Roe deer in a pit for his party.
I jointed the meat
while friends gathered stinging nettles to protect the meat
Chris had dug a hole in his garden in which to cook the deer and my next task was to make a fire
I continued to add wood for a couple of hours
until I had achieved a good bed of embers
Having achieved a good bed of embers I covered them with a thick layer of nettles
