The open hearth/spit cookery over firepits in the SCA is still a
thing. We've been doing it years, but there's no one source or website
or contains 'everything one needs to know.' This list and the Yahoo website
started in April 2007. Give it a couple years and they will be a lot
more rich in details,
provided of course that people join and post.
Recipewise and these are for medieval/Renaissance recipes, not
necessarily over open
has my article on online sources for recipes.
In terms of cookbooks Tournaments Illuminated ran my article on The
or Culinary Texts a Reader Must Know About in the Fall 2005 issue # 156.
