FRF CHALLENGE! The fanciest thing you've ever cooked..

The fanciest thing I made for dinner was filet mignon aupuave ( peppercorn cream sauce with brandy). Garlic bread with Gorgonzola sauce. Shiitake mushrooms in Demi glacé with roasted garlic and roasted potatoes. Washed it down with sparkling wine. This was for our anniversary last year and I was able to get the camper set up ( boon docking) and dinner cooked before she got there.

That Sir, was awesome! I think the next time we have a decently long camping trip I will grill carne asada and grill some bacon wrapped stuffed jalapeños. I will have to prepare it all at home and just cook it while camping.

We know well ahead of time what the meal plans are for our trips and do as much of the prep work ahead of time to save time and grief of a smaller kitchen space.

My spouse is an Executive Chef and as Cajuns we generally have an entire culture of eating extremely well daily. Camping just means we've changed locations. There are so many foods that we are accustomed to that can't be located elsewhere so it's definitely best if it comes from home.

Food safety is always top priority. I cringe when I see campers with raw meat and dairy products in cheap ice chests for days on end.

The the At the Cookout subforum is designed for that. There is currently no social group in community for cooking. you can create one if you wish. Go to community up too, select social groups. Scroll down and click start new group.

I take a long knife and poke a hole lengthwise through a pork tenderloin. Then I stuff a nice spicy charizo sausage into the hole. A rub consisting of ground peppercorns, fennel seeds and cayenne pepper then on to the BBQ she goes! Not all that fancy but tastes pretty good.

There's a very similar dish that's popular in Texas often called Armadillo Eggs. The only difference is it's also wrapped with a chicken breast pounded flat. Yes, it is as fantastic as it sounds.

David, funny that you mention Texas, as that is HEB bacon, double smoked hickory and mesquite. I have been hooked on it for years. About an hour North of where I live is s place called Bentons Meats. Seems the world raves about Bentons bacon. I tried it a few months ago. It is fully cured which is nice. But the price point from HEB to Bentons is the deal breaker for me.

I use a 22 or 18 inch weber charcoal grill. Depends on how many people I'm cooking for.
