I routinely cook over open fires or a charcoal brazier at SCA events, using cast iron, pottery, and soapstone cooking vessels.  It's quite straightforward, in my experience, and I've prepared some pretty decent stews and roasts using such techniques.  Also, I know a number if folks who spit roast large cuts of meat, and others who build traditional earthen ovens for long camping events.
