Camping Recipes

Hey all, I'm going camping in Anzo Borrego this weekend and was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for camping dinners. I would like to try roasting a game hen, but not sure if it's really feasible, as I don't have a spit of any kind. (I could butterfly 'em I suppose.) Any other ideas are welcome.

  1. If you go to the General topics board and search camping, you will find lots of recipes. Game hens over a grill sound perfectly feasible.

    1. When I camp it's all about convenience, but one of the items I've made in the past that was a hit was chicken or skirt steak marinated on skewers. Works great on a grill, serve with roasted veggies or fire roasted baked potatoes. I also use seal a meal big time when I camp. I've pre-cooked beef stroganoff, sealed and then reheated in a pot of hot water, served over noodles. Super decadent camping food! Have fun!

      1. What cooking gear do you have? Cooler space? Number of people? Things like that make a big difference in what is feasible and worth the effort. With lots of cooler space and only a day from home you can prepare a lot before hand. A week into a trip with little cooler space, two people, and limited equipment, means a much simpler meal, based largely on canned and dried items.

        1. Camp cooking is a blast, especially when everybody else in the campground is grilling hot dogs and hamburgers, and we're doing marinated steaks and lobster tails. I love it when people walk by and say, "Ooh, that smells good, what are you guys cooking?"
