Dakota fire holes are easy to make and have a high survival value. They produce little to no smoke, so having this type of fire to cook on will not give your position away if you are bugging out or evading something. They burn hotter and use less fuel than regular fires and cook your food very fast.
I would always recommend making one if you are staying put for a few days as it used less fuel and when you are done you could just fill the holes back up or place rocks over the holes so you can use it again if you plan on returning. Read all the advantages and reasons why you should make a Dakota fire hole below:
