Roast the apple 2 to 3 inches above the bed of hot coals and turn frequently. (As the apple cooks, the skin starts to brown and the juice dribbles out.) When the skin is loose, remove the apple from the coals but leave it on the stick. Peel the skin off the apple, being careful not to burn yourself because the apple is very hot.

Preparation:  Boil potatoes for approximately 4-5 minutes depending on size. They should still be firm and crisp, not mushy. They will finish cooking on the grill. Let potatoes cool completely before putting in foil bag. Chop bell peppers, onion and zucchini squash into large pieces. Put chopped vegetables, whole jalapenos, whole potatoes and whole mushrooms into a large foil bag with garlic, olive oil, lemon or lime juice, soy sauce, butter flavoring, lemon pepper seasonings, and dill. Cut meat into large stew size pieces. Put meat in a separate foil bag with 1/4 cup of olive oil, garlic, chicken seasonings, butter flavoring and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Put different meats in separate bags. Place the foil bags into larger 2 gallon Ziploc bags to store while traveling. To cook, place foil bags on grill for 8-10 minutes, turning after 5-6 minutes. Let sit before opening bags.



Baked Apples

Ingredients:   *Granny Smith Apples      *butter       *brown sugar       *cinnamon candies       *caramels

Preparation:  Use as many Granny Smith Apples as you need for your camping crowd. Core the apple, leaving a thin layer on the bottom. In the cored out area, put a pat of butter and about a tablespoon of brown sugar. This will depend on how big your apples are, remember the brown sugar will melt down into the butter. The rest is up to you, you can put in a few cinnamon candies, or a couple caramels, depending on the flavor you like. Wrap the apples in foil, (if your coals are hot, double wrap, if they are cooler, single wrap). The apples are placed on the coals, and rolled every 10 minutes or so. They usually take about a half hour, depending again upon the heat of your coals. If you are lucky enough to have a freezer, you could add ice cream when you serve these. We have also served them with a whipped topping, cheese, or if you’re a purist...just as they come from the fire. ‘


Baked Onions

Ingredients:   *onion per person       *black pepper       *butter or margarine

Preparation:  Take an onion and take off outer skin. Hollow out the core and add cracked fresh ground black pepper and put a large pat of butter or margarine in the hole. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake on grill for about an hour on medium, or in oven at 325 degrees for an hour. The onion is juicy, sweet and delicious.

In 13 X 9 pan melt one stick margarine and pour in cooked sausage. Pour the batter on top of the sausage. Cook at 400 degrees about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with syrup or ketchup, my family has tried it with both.

Ingredients:   *1 pound(s) top sirloin steak    *1/2 c balsamic vinegar    *1/4 c olive oil    *1-2 tsp minced garlic   * 2 Tbsp honey or brown sugar *dash Worcestershire sauce    *salt and pepper    *dash cayenne pepper

Preparation:  Mix all ingredients in a sealable plastic container or Ziploc freezer bag. Let sit for at least 4 hours. Then toss the steak on the barbeque or campfire grill. Delicious! Wrap some potatoes in foil and cook in the fire as well.


Balsamic Vinegar Chicken

Ingredients:   *4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves       *3/4 c balsamic vinegar

Preparation:  Place the chicken and balsamic vinegar in a zip-top bag. Squeeze out as much of the air as possible when sealing. Place in refrigerator and marinate 4-12 hours (longer is better). Remove chicken from marinade and discard remaining liquid. The dark color of the vinegar will make the chicken appear almost brownish-gray. Don't worry - it'll be fine. Place chicken on grill over medium heat or you can pan fry covered over medium heat adding water to cover bottom of pan. Cook until no longer pink in center and juices run clear.   This goes well with rice, pasta or bread and a salad. Leftovers are great chunked into a big fresh salad with a light vinaigrette dressing.


Banana Boat

Ingredients:   *1 banana      *1/2 milk chocolate bar      *3-5 marshmallows (full size)      *aluminum foil

Put onion, ginger, cinnamon & apple cider in large roasting pan and mix until evenly distributed place ribs in roasting pan. Cover with foil and cook over medium heat for 2 hours. While ribs are cooking in roasting pan, mix BBQ sauce, grill ribs over indirect medium heat for an additional hour brushing BBQ sauce on lightly every 15 minutes. Use smoking chips at this point if you like (sweeter chips are better).When ribs are done, cover with plastic wrap for ½ hour before serving. While ribs are cooling in a covered pan, take remaining BBQ sauce and a ½ cup of the roasting sauce and bring to a boil and let simmer until fairly thick. When done, serve on the side. Use a charcoal grill with a lid or over a fire. These are simply the best sweet ribs you ever tasted.

Berry Pie

Ingredients:   *4 c berries (strawberries, blueberries or raspberries)     *milk     *6 Bisquick or biscuit dough     *dash brown sugar                 * cream or whipped cream

Preparation:  Use favorite berries, wash them and if you are using large berries, like strawberries, you will want to cut them into smaller pieces. Fill the bottom with the berries. Use bisquick to mix enough dough to make about 6 biscuits/dumplings (usually about half the suggested recipe on the box). Drop dumplings into the pot, making about 5-6 round lumps with small spaces between for air to escape. Fill the pot with milk, just until the milk is barely at the top of the dumplings or if the berries are frozen, use less milk. Do NOT completely cover the dumplings or you'll end up with mush. Cover pot tightly with lid. Put on medium to low heat for about 20 minutes or until the milk has been absorbed and dumplings are light and fluffy. Be careful not to burn the berries on the bottom. Serve warm or cold with a little cream and sprinkled with brown sugar.  


Best Buttermilk Waffles

.Ingredients (Makes 3 1/2 cups batter):   *2 c flour     *1/4 c brown sugar (packed)    *1 tsp baking soda     *1 1/2 tsp baking powder    *1/2 tsp salt   * 3 eggs    *2 c buttermilk     *1/2 c butter (melted)     *1 tsp vanilla

Preparation:  In a mixing bowl mix (or whisk) together eggs, buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Pour in dry ingredients and mix. Batter will be runny. Pour about 1/2 cup batter onto waffle baker.


Biscuits on a Stick

Ingredients:     *Ready to bake biscuits

Preparation:   Because you are cooking a biscuit, you can't use a small stick or cloths-hanger. You will need to have a stick that is about ¾ of an inch to 1 in diameter. (Dowel rods work real well, but you can use anything, I usually cut up some scrap wood that I always have around the house). Once you get your sticks, you need to put tin foil around the end of the stick covering a good six inches. If you don't do this your stick will probably start burning, which sort of takes the fun out of cooking the biscuit.

You also need a can of biscuits, you know the kind that pops open and you just put them on a cookie sheet. I think any type of biscuit would work, just regular or large biscuits. Insert the foil covered stick into the biscuit and roast over a campfire until golden brown on the outside and baked completely on the inside.

Insert a pointed stick through the folded part of the bag. Hold stick so bag hangs about 4" to 5" above hot coals. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, being careful not to let the bag catch on fire.   Remove bag from heat and, using an oven mitt, fold open to check that eggs have been cooked throughout. If eggs have not completely cooked, refold paper bag and hold over hot coals for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Fold down paper bag and eat breakfast directly from bag.

Cook the southern style hash browns in a frying pan with salt, pepper and oil until browned. Mix together and put in a container or zip lock bag and refrigerate until needed. Grate cheddar cheese (store in container or zip lock bag). On the morning you will cook these, take out mixture and place in large frying pan and heat.

Refrigerate for 3 to 5 days - if time permits. Place meat trivet in bottom of Dutch oven large enough to hold brisket. Place brisket (fat side up) on trivet. Cover and hang low over the fire to get the pot hot. When the meat starts to sizzle, raise to the highest hook and cook over low fire for approximately 12 hours. Go for a ride, take a nap, do some fishing and cook the brisket overnight. Low and slow is the key to a good, juicy brisket that is fork tender, and that's just all there is to it! When it's done, throw it on the grill to crispy the outside, slice and pour the juices from the pot over the meat.

Cover and let rise in a warm place until dough nearly doubles (30 to 40 minutes).  Cover Dutch oven and arrange 8 to 10 hot coals around the edge of the Dutch oven and 10 to 12 hot coals on the lid. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden, rotating the Dutch oven a half-turn halfway through cooking. Makes 12 servings.


Camp Eclairs

Toast the dough over the campfire until it gets golden brown on the outside. When the dough turns golden brown, slide it off the end of the stick, (this will leave a hole going through the center). Fill this hole (where the stick was) with vanilla pudding and top with the chocolate frosting.
