I was on that trip. Idaho had a statewide fire ban at the time. But the Forest Service did not. When we picked up our permit and asked if it was OK to cook over fires (saving us the weight and bulk of stoves and fuel) they told us it was fine as long as we used fire pans and hauled out our ashes.
We all got a good laugh out of the irony of both of their 'conditions'.
