Nettles were added until a thick layer covered the embers

Then the meat was placed on to the nettles

Another thick layer of nettles was placed on the meat and then a fire built on top

After four and a half hours the fire had burnt down to embers and ash

and so I decided to scrape away the top layer of ash and remaining nettles to remove the meat

Now I like my meat pink and a little bloody but for some it was not cooked enough and to be honest I think I should have cooked it for another hour

but for those who liked their meat cooked more we put a leg in the oven to finish it.

It’s such a simple cooking method with no need to find suitable rocks to heat and I will certainly be doing it again.  And everyone was happy with the end result!
