Wrapped it in foil (shiny side in is supposed to make it slightly hotter--who knows?):


Just a general FYI:
They did Aluminum Foil on Discorey's "How It's Made" a few weeks ago. The reason one side is shiny and the other is dull, IIRC, is that they run two rolls of foil (of the proper width) thru a press at the same time, back-to-back. The dull side is the surface that was pressed against the other sheet of foil, while the shiny side is actually sort of polished by the rollers on the press.


My favorite foil recipe is what my wife simply calls "packets".
Get some stew (cubed) meat- beef or venison; you could even use pork or chicken, even high-quality cuts of meat if you feel like cubing it yourself.

Get some vegetables. I always use Celery, Onion, Carrots and Potatoes.

Wrap vegetables and meat in a sheet of foil, leaving the top open for the time being.

I always salt and pepper mine beforehand, but it isn't necessary.

Drop in some butter. I usually put in a couple tablespoons full.

Roll the top edges of the foil together to seal the packet. You could also double-wrap it in foil if you wanted, but this makes it a little difficult to check the progress if the opening sections aren't lined up.

Put 'em on the grill. It usually takes about a half-hour or a little more to cook them, and no side dishes are needed. Everything cooks in the packet, flavors mingle and it comes out delicious.



free bump!!!! i will be trying this recipe at the end of the month on our camping trip!!!

I had a girlfriend that would bring foil, oranges, and a jar of mixed cake batter when we went camping. She would slice the orange in half, with the stem part at the top, and ease the fruit out of both halves. Then she would fill the lower half with cake batter, replace the top half skin, then wrap the whole thing in foil and set it in the fire for about 15 minutes, and when they came out they looked like snowballs, but were orange flavored cake. Very tasty, but I am a pie guy, so I dumped her.


My wife and myself taught an outdoor cooking class to 2 groups of Girl Scout leaders yesterday. We tried this for the first time at the class and it was one of the biggest hits that we did :D . People could not believe the taste or how it was done :shock: . We had people stopping by and asking about it who had not even taken the class. But for us , using larger naval oranges, cook time was about 15 to 20 minutes.
THANKS

Is that a Ford Probe or a Mazda? That looks just like the engine bay of my long-gone Ford Probe SE.


I've cooked pizza on the hot engine hatch of my VW bus, in traffic on the H1 in hawaii when there was a big wreck and it was shut down for a while. An awesome memory: Me and a bunch of kama'ina bumming around, no particular rush, just eating pizza, drinking green tea (Hawaiian Sun brand!) and talking story.

Edit: The accident was that a Semi had flipped, completely blocking all four lanes. No one was hurt tho; the driver walked away.

I have always used foil in the past entirely different than here.

When making our fire pit I would dig a hole at one end maybe three to four inches deep and about a foot diameter. I would line the bottom of this hole with ferns or grasses.

I would then place my catch usually fish in the foil like you guys have, cover with more ferns. Then cover with a couple inches of soil. I would set the fire directly above this hole.

I would let the fish literally bake in there (under soil & coals) for say an hour.

At that time I move the hot coals to the other end of the fire pit. Retrieve my foil packet (careful digging) and enjoy a hot meal while out in the bush.

Foil steams the steak, and nobody wants that. Instead blow the ashes off hot charcoal and slap the steak straight down. Go ahead and rest it in the foil afterwards.

For a steak, why not just put a smooth, dry, stone in the middle of your coals and then slap the steak on it once it has heated up.

There's tons of ways to use stones for cooking. Just gotta make sure it's dry or it will explode. Wee!

The Boy Scout field book, IIRC has some basic foil cookery recipes.

And, now I don't have to carry pots or pans 'cause my foil hat can double as cookware!

To fuel your Foil Cooking....................Lowe's has charcoal BOGO works out to approx $4.38 per bag, through Memorial Day, great cooking fuel. We are going to store it in a plastic storage tub to keep the moisture out.

Bumparoo!

One I do very regularly in the fire box of my smoker, on the gas grill or in the camp fire.

•Dice up potatoes season with salt, pepper and dillo dust.

•put in foil packet with cheese, diced bacon, corn and sometimes hot sauce.

• Chuck in fire of choice.

• cook till taters are soft. Open and eat :)

°Cook time varies depending of fire type.

Another easy on I do all trout season long and I have pix. ....... :mrgreen:


Camp trout.
Image

Fresh trout (got these the day I cooked them)
Lemon
Butter
Usually dillo dust
garlic

Image
Cut off heads clean well, stuff with lemon garlic and butter.

Image
Put in foil with more lemon garlic and butter (top and bottom) season.

Image
Wrap them fuckers up and put on grill or other available fire. I do them middle with only the burners to the left and right on medium.

Image
Have a few beers or whatever does it for ya.

Open peal off skin and either plate up or eat out of the foil like a real man. :D


Image
Open up peal off skin and eat. Not the best looking but damn tasty.

We have done the foil cooking over the fire every time we go camping, the kids love it. They also love paper bag eggs and bacon. Take a lunch bag and line the bottom with a slice of bacon then scramble and egg and dump it in. Roll over the top of the back and poke a stick through it. Hang it over the fire and in a little bit to cook and then tear the bag open for some yummy bacon and eggs. The bacon fat saturates the bag and it doesnt burn if you hold it just above the flame.

So is this like a whole orange with just the fruit taken out? Fill the 2 empty skin halves, push together to keep the batter from coming out and then wrap in foil and cook?

Am I getting this right?




Done the Oneswunk fish job plenty of times, good stuff!

Bump to add this link http://ab5w.com/explorers/cooking/BackwoodsCooking.pdf Its a good guide of things to cook over fires with no proper cookware.

Used it to modify/create this menu that I ran for an Explorer Scout evening http://ab5w.com/explorers/cooking/backwoodsExplorers.jpg

Turned out well apart from the young leader adding way too much Tabasco sauce in the leaders one... my eyes were streaming :p

I think you pour the batter in one half and leave one half empty so the cake will expand into it. I'm definitely going to try this next time I burn some brush. My 5 year old daughter will love it.

Great thread. I remember making the hobo meals in scouts. I'm off to the woods tomorrow until Sunday and will be using some of these.

I tried the cake in an orange thing, except I tried it with angel food cake since it was the only mix that only needed water, and I didn't have/plan-to-bring eggs or milk.

It was a disaster.

So just for reference (because I am sure this works) do not use angel food cake mix. I'm still gonna try it with some other kind of mix at some point...

This is a great thread by the way, I have it bookmarked, but have never posted in it yet. I really want to try the onion thing.
