While breaking the bone open in order to reach the marrow would be a valid method, it still did not fit the way marrow were supposed to have been reached. The method I were to try this day included putting the bones in the embers but further from the heat, and placing some within a soapstone vessel that was heated without any liquid. These bones where given a second hole in the other end in order to make have the marrow run through the bone easier.
The first case was still difficult to control and and the bone as well as the marrow was overly burnt
In the second case some marrow seemed to have seeped out at the bottom of the pot but far from enough.
