ditto, I make these and in several different ways, always very good. Plus you can prepare ahead of time.

we've introduced the kids to "Hobo Pies" made with a campfire iron/pan. Our "favorite" camping foods tend to be burgers and hot dogs.

Well guess what happened? The cardboard caught fire, the edges were burnt, and the middle was still frozen.

This is the same girl who also thought that waterproofing spray for my tent was a bad idea and chose to put a blue tarp over the entire tent... when it was 90+ degrees out. No, not just over the roof, staked the tarp over the entire thing, on 3 sides. It was over 100 in the tent.

Sorry for the hijack

Bacon-wrapped prime rib in the dutch oven over the camp fire. We've made the mountain man breakfast in the DO many times and it is awesome as well!

Prime rib roast (we figure 3/4 to 1 lb per person)
Thick sliced bacon
Whole garlic cloves - 5 or 6, depending on your roast size
salt & pepper

peel garlic cloves; cut in half. Make small slits in roast and shove the garlic cloves into the meat. Salt & pepper generously. Wrap roast with thick sliced bacon.

Put in a preheated DO over the campfire for about an hour, just so a meat thermometer gets near rare. (Temp will rise as it "rests")

You can hang the DO over the fire on a tripod, or you can put the on the ground with coals underneath. Put a few coals on top so the heat comes from the top as well, which will cook and crisp up your bacon.

In less than 2 hours, you will have an awesome prime rib!!

We also make mushroom and onions in au jus to put over the top.
Yum yum!!

Hot dogs burnt black on the outside and still cold on the inside on a stale bun with no condiments. Oh wait! You said favourite meal, not most common.

my favorite meals are the ones I make in my dutch oven but the best meal I had camping was when I didn't want to cook and we ordered a pizza loaded with all the good stuff while we waited for delivery we got a nice fire going then made s'mores for desert

Mine is nothing special but I love cheddar lil' smokies over the fire with a couple beers. Don't know what it is but when you cook them over a fire man they are good.

Chicken pieces. Depends on what you want. When we are cooking for a lot of people I will do legs, thighs, and wings. For less I use chicken breasts. Cooks up really tender so you can also shred and use leftovers for sandwiches.

Dr Pepper
Favorite BBQ sauce ( we love sweet baby rays or use your own)

Spray sides of Dutch oven with nonstick spray for easier cleanup.
Place chicken in Dutch oven, cover with BBQ sauce and just enough dr pepper to cover chicken. Cover with lid. Place over coals until dr pepper condenses down to a thick consistancy and chicken is cooked fully. Sometimes i remove the lid at the end to help it condense down. About an hour. Enjoy!

One trick I learned early was not to use very much dr pepper or you will be waiting forever for it to condense down. I have also done this with cream soda. Same version as the Pepsi chicken or coca cola version.

We usually have a steak and cheese sub night. We use steak ums and grill onions,peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes on the griddle and top with mozzarella cheese. Next morning we use the remainder to make omelettes.

Smoked babyback ribs cooked low and slow on a wood pellet grill..Smells so good while smoking you make all kinds of new campground friends while cooking them. I think I have probably helped sell 5 or 6 of these grills since I started taking ours camping with us..

T-bones on the Weber kettle or whole chickens on the Weber Smokey Mountain. Both with potato packets and corn on the cob when possible.
