This feature has been identified as a roasting pit. The roasting pit was constructed by digging a hole and lining it with rocks.

A fire was then started in the pit to get the rocks hot. The meat was placed in the hole, with the fire and heated rocks, covered with grass, twigs and earth, and left to roast for a day.

Another way the Native Americans would prepare their food was by "stone boiling."

This is where hot rocks would be put into a skin lined, water-filled pit. The rocks would heat the water, cooking the food.
