    Default Campfire Meals

    I'm assuming there are a number of campers here who combine GT trips with camping.

    So what are your fave campfire meals?

    I enjoy burgers and a plate of beans.

    Anything from an M.R.E. (meal ready to eat) to catching my own fish and frying it up with mushrooms and tater tots to hotdogs and hamburgers...just won't touch anything that Bear Grills eats.

    When I was active in Scouts, I got hooked on Hobo dinners. You know, hamburger or the like, taters, onions, carrots and what have you safely wrapped in tin foil and tossed on the coals. Many old scouters decried these meals and the kids professed to dislike them, but all ate hardy and seemed to enjoy once it was said and done. They were probably looked down upon because it was one of the first campfire meals learned and folks thought it was beneath them. My next favorite is almost anything cooked in a dutch oven by a guy or gal who knows what they're doing. OJ

    Almost anything made in a dutch oven. I say almost as I haven't tried to dutch oven a rock or dirt yet. But everything else is pretty much like crack to me.

    For the younger set...I've learned and taught Dutch oven Pizza & other (fast foods). When done correctly, the youngsters and adults love it....There are a few pros around, and I ain't one. But anything can be done with Dutch Ovens. In my experience, the best place to learn is those good deal classes taught through the Boy Scouts. Mac

    When on multiple day camping trips, I generally eat from a can. The only meal I do enjoy making is breakfast. So other than eggs, some sausage and hashbrown potato patties, everything else is canned or meal in a cup.

    After a long day of exploring and driving, I'm not in the mood to make a big deal out of making something and the dishes afterwards.

    But tailgate cooking of breakfast on the old Coleman and cast iron skillet, along with my morning coffee on the tailgate in the morning light, that is magic!

    Default Food is Food

    Depends on why I am camping! Fresh Deer Liver grilled with some onions after a good day of hunting! My fri9end who has patience cooks the best steaks, Baked potato in the coals at a race in Baja after pitting for hopefully the winner, Breakfast like Froggy describes cooked on a Coleman or a 1/4 pound hot dog one stick over a fire all have their appeal! So does a quick trip to Scolari's in Tonopah for a pre-cooked chicken if your tired! After all - food is food after a day of adventure! A dutch oven cooked desert sure tops off any dinner however!
