Cowboy coffee in a granite ware pot over a campfire equals temporary nirvana. Be sure to use good water. When we sit up late by the fire sipping coffee and listening to the sounds of the woods and fields that is the best. We camp in central MN farm country, it's not a wilderness but me and my two boys can get away with the guys and burn some wood and get jittered up on some bean juice then come home smelling like wood smoke and bacon. Such good time.
