Salmon over the fire. Corn on the cob wrapped in butter and foil over the fire. Any breakfast campfire pie.

LOVE that breakfast idea, it's ALWAYS been one of our favorites. MOST of our campfire recipes we use any more are pretty fuss free (we're getting lazy in our old age] like different versions of "tin foil stew". When we were young and dumb we used to fix breakfast over the campfire for a family of 7 each morning while tent camping. Now I've gone and made myself hungry :D

Most any kind of breakfast thing is great...can't beat the smell of coffee and bacon in the morning. Still, even in my old age enjoy making anything with pie irons, i.e. fruit pies, pizza, rubens, etc.

Although we never do it while RV'ing (I'll have to change this!), when me and the "guys" go tent camping once or twice a year we bring along the open firepit grill.

The absolute best tasting camp food in the world (IMHO) is some big burgers grilled over an open fire. Gotta get a nice bed of coals and a bit of smoke rolling off of it, and throw the burgs onto the cooking grill about 12' over the coals.

Toss onto a fresh kaiser, add a piece of marble cheese, sit back and devour.

(Damn, now I've made myself hungry as well..heh)

All breakfast foods, I love cooking bacon and sipping coffee outside on a cool morning. Also love my wife's Nearly Famous Sausage Dogs.

Nearly Famous Sausage Dogs

Use Bryans bun length smoked sausage or the bun length sausage of your choice. Cut a shallow slit down the length of 2 sides and push pieces of onion in one side and bell pepper in the other side. Next wrap the whole thing with a strip of bacon and secure it together with toothpicks. Grill or smoke them until the bacon is crispy on the outside. Enjoy

One of our favorite recipes is Pineapple Upside Down Cake in a dutch oven.

I take the oven, kind with legs, line it with foil for easy cleanup, then butter the inside of the foil. Put in a can of crushed pineapple, 1/2 of the juice removed, 3/4 cup of brown sugar and spread them evenly; or just dump - it works both ways.

Mix up per recipe a white or yellow, your choice, box cake mix and pour it into the oven. Put the lid on, put 12 glowing pieces of charcoal under the oven and 9 pieces on the top. In about 40 minutes the cake should be done. Check with a toothpick.

Have a large plate to turn it over onto and remove the foil. We use a lined pizza pan for this.

Let cool alittle and then keep the neighbors away until you get your fill. After that you can share.

If you make two you can invite the neighbors right away.

This is one of the recipes that is hard to mess up. I forgot the brownsugar once and just dumped it ontop of the cake just prior to baking and it still turned out good.

At one of the campgrounds on our "route" when heading south each year there is a guy who was smoking meat for other campers as a means of helping to finance his full time RVing habit. Just about every day he'd have three or four orders smoking all day long. I'd gain 20 lb. if we stayed there for long just because my apatite was always being stimulated by that heavenly aroma.

Nothing better than some good pulled pork, and cheap too. I did a couple of roasts a week ago...friends, neighbors, and stray dogs all were hanging around. We keep talking about this food stuff and PrivatePilot is going to have to put a cooking catagory on here. 8-)

I've got one, although I don't bring it camping, it stays at home in the back deck.

I cook everything in it...chicken, roasts, pork (for pulled pork), and of course, ribs.

Everyone in the neighborhood goes bonkers because of the smell when I've got 4 or 5 racks of ribs smoking over charcoal for 8 hours. Hehe..

And fla-gypsy, my wife was looking at those hotdog creations a short while ago and stating that we "must!" try this recipe this year. Yummmm..

I am very excited to try that recipe...anything wrapped in bacon is usually good for me- I love scallops wrapped in bacon and a new fav. is waterchestnuts in bacon, also greek meatballs- wrapped in bacon and drenched in brown sugar BBQ sauce.
I too like the meat burnt well- usually getting all kinds of wierd looks from waiters and cooks when I ask them to put my meat back on the grill....and Mark often laughes about serving me a steak at about the point most people would throw it in the garbage!

That must be a BIG fire!!!!! :D I agree burgers over the grill are about the best burgers around.

My favorite is deep fried trout, bass, catfish, or whatever else the catch of the day is. Our fry daddy is always in the trailer along with Andy's seasoning and oil.

As far as the grill goes, nothing beats some juicy porksteaks (or the above mentioned burgers) smothered in BBQ sauce. I usually buy KC Masterpiece, but most any brand will do.

Fla-gypsy add me to the list of folks going to try that "Nearly Famous Sausage Dog" recipe this summer. They look absolutely delicious!!

Pour about a 6'er of beer in a pot, a couple rough chopped onions, some chopped ginger (if you got it), a half of a handfull of peppercorns, salt and a dozen bratwursts with tiny forkholes punched in em. Simmer em for about half an hour then throw right on the grill for a burn and some grillmarks. Throw em on a bun with some mustard and some of the onions from the pot, and brace yourself for some GOOD EATS!!! :twisted: I wish I had a picture of the finished product but I only got one when I started, must have been eatin!!!

You wanna talk Cajun!

24 - Aluminum foil tins for Stuffed Crabs, minus the Stuffed Crabs.
24 - Raw Oysters
1 stick Butter; none of that fake stuff (margarine)
4-12 Cloves minced Garlic
A few dashes of Tiger Sauce
Fresh Grated Parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste

Put 1 seasoned oyster in each tin. Melt butter, saute in the garlic and Tiger Sauce; don't burn garlic. Put a heaping tbl. over each oyster. Place tins on grill/grate. Over medium-high heat, should be cooked in 15-20 minutes. 5 minutes before done, top with fresh grated Parmesan. Option: Wrap each oyster in bacon; do not use toothpick into oyster.
:D :D :D
Note: Do not overcook! Oysters should still be slightly juicy when you bite into them.
