Here is a sample:

  • Measure ingredients for each meal ahead of time and pack in ziplock bags. Label each bag accordingly.
  • Prepare soups, stews or chili etc ahead of time. Freeze and keep in cooler. Reheat for a quick meal.
  • Don’t forget the heavy duty aluminum foil. There are many uses for it at camp.
  • Be very careful with gas canisters. Keep upright at all times. Keep outside in well ventilated area. Check for leakage by putting soap liquid on all connections. Turn off when not in use.

Nice little blog you have going here Justin. Cooking outdoors or camping is a blast and like you mentioned the foil is an invaluable tool just for that purpose.

Here is an old one my mom use to do,
Season some ground beef (uncooked) how you like, make into small meat ball size, about 3 of them. Then slice up a potato into chip style slices, then cut up some onions, bell peppers, red peppers and carrots and what ever else you like.

Add all ingredients on to a piece of foil that is doubled over so it is basically 2 layers, add a nice thick slice of butter, then roll the ingredients up in the foil making sure the ends are closed good along with the edge.

If you are going camping just refridgerate them and then once at camp, throw them right into the coals around the fire, after about 25-30 minutes you have a hot delicious hobo meal that will satisfy any appetite. Keep them to the outer edges of the fire in the coals not in the open flame and use tongs to turn them over once or twice for even cooking.

You can make a bunch of them and freeze them also for your next outing. Try it, you’ll love them.
