Nothing is more satisfying than cooking outdoors. Instead of using your grill, make a fire with hardwood in your fire pit or chiminea and burn down to coals. Set a grate or oven rack over a few bricks or large pieces of wood, and watch as your meal crisps and slowly bakes over flavorful coals.
Also if you wrap an oiled and seasoned potato in foil, you can use a shovel or trowel to bury the potato in the coals. It will come out pleasantly crispy, with just a tint of smokiness.
Use the grate to grill your spring veggies while you are waiting for the chicken.
