looking for some ideas for camping good eats.

PBJ. bring some red potatos, squash, zucchini a bag of pearl onions and some minced garlic a couple lemons and fish for what ever you can catch and create a foil packet and after dicing the vegies and have some poached fish.

for burgers get some good sirloin and have it ground into hamburger. get a packet of liptons onion soup. mix the onion soup and the burger with some Worcester sauce and make some burgers. dont forget the dogs.

Are you going to be cooking what you catch/hunt or bringing the meat up yourself?

But to second what pen25 said, bring some good aluminum foil, potatoes, and whatever other veggies you enjoy. You can't go wrong with wrapping up taters, onions, garlic, and a few other veggies with some butter, salt, and pepper and getting a great camping side dish.

Otherwise, another good camping staple we use is a dozen or two of Johnsonville brats. Always fantastic on a grill. But if you want to take some hamburger, I always keep camping burgers simple and use some Old Bay seasoning. Mix in a decent amount of Old Bay with your burger meat, patty them up and throw them on the grill.

And I like pen's idea with the onion soup mix for burgers. I've often added those dehydrated onion flakes to burgers with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder before, so I'm sure the onion soup would be great as well.

we definitely will be bringing all the meat we would use with us.

I love potatoes like you described.

Rig a spit over your campfire & spitroast some cornish game hens. 1 game hen for each person, plus sides. You can do anything you like from BBQ to brushing with a beer/butter sauce. Don't forget the grahm crackers, hershey bars & marshmallows for making smores.

For your grill, get some 1lb salmon fillets, & marinade them in a 50/50 mix of soy sauce & fresh lemon juice for about an hour. Grill them over mesquite wood/charcoal/chips. The trick is to only turn them once. Serve with your fav veggies & small red potatoes. You might try planking some fish too. You can usually find those cedar planks in grocery store fish counters.

You can't beat a rack of BBQ spareribs. Use your fav BBQ sauce and be sure to grill them low & slow. I like to mix equal parts of Masterpiece mesquite BBQ sauce & honey, with the juice of 1 lime, 1/2 tsp Rooster sauce, and about 1 cup of porter.

Try some chicken leg quarters with the skin removed. Marinade 2 hrs in a mix of 24oz Sam Smith's Taddy Porter (let it go flat), or your own brew; and 4lbs frozen huckleberries (thawed), you can substitute 3lbs blueberries if you like. Mash the berries in a big ziploc freezer bag, they'll easily mash with just hand pressure. place the chicken leg quarters in the bag & pour in the beer. Seal the bag & move it around in your hands, lightly sqeezing it to mix the berries & beer. This will darken the meat quite a bit, so don't be alarmed when you see the color.

Hope you find these things tasty. Regards, GF.

Hobo dinners. Ground beef pattie in the bottom of a foil packet with onions, potatoes, whatever veggies you like and a couple slices of bacon. Throw it on the fire till its done. My dad always made these growing up when we went camping.

Why are you guys trying to cover up the flavor of the beef! :p

Mutilated1 06-29-2009 03:35 PM

it doesn't cover up the flavor of the beef any more than putting ketchup on a burger does
