Campfire cooking

I love to cook on the campfire. Add a grill over hot coals and cook away. Use tinfoil right on the coals. Potato’s a little onion and butter 25 minutes on the coals. Zuke and squash onions garlic butter in tinfoil. Small pumpkins with brown sugar raisins butter and cinnamon in foil right on the coals. Tripod + Dutch oven + campfire = hot tasty and fun cooking. Hamburger spices potatoes and veggies in foil. Yum
Yes I love to cook on a campfire.

What do you cook on your campfire?

Enjoy life at camp!

I have a home made adjustable grate for my cooking over the fire. I use it for everything. Ribs, chicken, burgers and bacon and eggs in my cast iron skillet. I still bring my Smokey joe with me but only use that if it’s raining.

We have almost given up on campfire cooking since fire bans have become so prevalent around here. From June thru Sept it is hard to find a park that will allow fires unless you are right on the coast. When we have the chance we usually stick to hamburgers and hot dogs. I bought a Weber grill grate and set it up on fire bricks to get it off of the yucky grate that is over most fire pits in Oregon parks. The reason for just burgers and dogs? My wife says she goes camping for fun and relaxation and that doesn't include acting like she's at home, only outdoors. We usually fix meals beforehand at home that can be easily reheated and bag them up in portion size bags.

We have been doing an annual family camping trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in August the last two years, and have it planned for this coming August as well. It's 'my side' of the family and we aren't as big as my wife's side. However whenever we get together we ALWAYS do a 'trash can' turkey (or two).

We brine it for a couple days prior to cooking. We follow a simple recipe and cooking instructions. Whenever we do it at a camp ground we always have people stop and give us the "What the..." look, but whenever we pull off the can, and show the turkey and give out tastings, people always LOVE it.

You take a metal rebar about 2' long and drive it into the ground so it's sticking up about 16"

Lay 20' of aluminum foil around said stake

Place 20lb turkey vertically onto stake

Cover said turkey with a 20g aluminum trash can (it's only use is for cooking so buy new and burn off the galvanization on the inside)

Put 20lbs of charcoal around the aluminum foil, and on trash can, then light said charcoal.

Once charcoal is 'lit', let it sit cooking for 2 hours and 20 minutes

remove charcoal, trash can, and have a platter ready for turkey. Cut turkey (if needed) and eat!!

it's amazing.. we have been doing it for 10+ years. We do it for all holiday dinners. My stepdad has it down to a science where the turkey actually falls apart one it touches the platter! Keeps the turkey nice and juicy while giving it a nice smokey flavor!

Microwave a whole chicken on high for 20 mins. Then stick a skewer through it, lather on the BBQ. Then roast over the hot coals (rotating frequently) until golden brown.
Crack open a cool one and enjoy the meal.

no fires in AZ

Does anyone have a method to diffuse heat from grill or stove. I have some low and slow dutch oven recipes I use with charcoal but not allowed.
