Popping popcorn on a campfire is easy to do and impressive as heck! Plus, the popcorn gets this amazing smoky flavor. First, be sure to have heavy duty aluminum foil on hand, not the flimsy stuff! Second, have neutral-flavored oil like grapeseed or vegetable oil. Third, do not skimp on the oil! It sounds like a lot, but it turns out it is very important for the full popping experience.
