I have done a LOT of tent camping from the time I was a toddler.
the only difference in camp cooking and the modern fire pit is that
the fire pit is permanent. other than that, it is just basic camp style cooking.
after you get your pit broken in, and the family likes it, I would put some
thought into a different rack system. one that you can swing the rack
off the heat and slide up and down on a vertical. my father was a welder
and fabricator, so he made all kinds of cooking gadgets for our camp fire cooking.
x-tra long tongs and meat hooks are a necessity. (you'll learn as you go).
something like a pipe clamp that locks (firmly) in position and another
clamp to keep it from sliding down onto the fire. (you can figure it out).
