Could we try a thread that deals with Camping/ camp cooking, DO recipes type of thread. Cachers camp. Cachers cook while camping looking for caches. It looks we got some pretty avid people who do both.

i've been practicing the scout cobbler/dump cakes, here's one I did at the four score event this weekend:

Blue Berry Mountain Dew Cobbler

1 - 14inch Lodge Logic Camp Style Dutch Oven (lodgemfg.com)
1 - Pair long schnappers (restaurant style kitchen tongs) for moving briquettes
1 - Pair seriously thick leather gloves (you'll figure out quickly how imp. these are)
1 - Lodge Logic lid lifter
2 - 20oz Cans Blueberry Pie Filling
1 - Box Yellow Cake Mix
1/2 stick butter
1 - Bottle spray butter
12oz Regular Mountain Dew
1 - sm container Ground Cinnamon
1 - Box Tinfoil
1 - bag charcoal (recommend kingsford original)

Start approximately 36 charcoal briquettes in a charcoal chimney (worth the money, no lighter fluid needed) should be ready in 10-12 mins, enough time to make the recipe.

Cover bottom of dutch oven with tinfoil (your choice, cleans up easier)
Spray light coating of butter on tinfoil
Spread 1 can of pie filling evenly across bottom of oven
Break up large chunks of cake mix while still in bag
Sprinkle a very light thin layer of cake mix over 1st pie filling layer
Spread 2nd can of filling evenly over 1st two layers(it will mix, no biggie)
Pour remaining cake mix over filling and spread evenly
Gently pour mountain dew over mix, it should "bubble" on top of mix
Cut 1/2 stick of butter into 1/4inch slices and distribute across top of mix
Sprinkle light coating of cinnamon across entire mix(mostly for coloring and scent while cooking).
Cover with lid.

Place 12-14 briquettes on ground (or whatever surface you are going to cook on) place dutch oven on top, place remainder of briquettes on top of oven. Check in 30 minutes, generally takes 45-50 mins, may require a few more briquettes and more time on colder days to complete.

Enjoy!

Last Night I did a blended fresh raspberry and apple pie filling... man was that good.

Substitutions in the above recipe:
~15oz Blended fresh raspberrys
1 20z can apple pie filling
1 12oz can sprite

It turned out a little wetter than the last but I had wet ground to work on.

I've found this recipe with the spice turned down a little to be really good:

Dutch oven dude nachos

And no I'm not the dutch oven dude... but BigJim might be in disguise.

One of our favorites is chicken pot pie. Diced chicken, cook in a hot DO, or cook before you go to camp. Add cream soup, veggies. Top with some unrolled canned crescent roll dough. Cook till bubbly and brown. Awesome.

Other things we've done in the DO...your basic pot roast. Stew. Shepherds' pie, which is one of our kids' favorites.

Scouts have a good cookbook for this...anything you need to know: http://www.zion412.org/Library/DutchOvenCookbooks/Scout%20Dutch%20Oven%20Cookbook.pdf

Basic tinfoil cooking, can't go wrong. "Hobo dinner"--Hamburger, potatoes, other veggies. Chicken variety--Diced chicken with minute rice, veggies, and creamed soup. Pie irons for grilled sammies, Camp McMuffins and all kinds of stuff. To be honest a DO cobbler is too big for a family of four, so we usually stick with pudgie pies.

Ah-course, if you're looking for the wow factor with camping noobs or kids, make some omelets in Ziploc bags, or cook some eggs & bacon in a paper bag over the coals.

Are willing to share? I've never heard of either of these.

For a little different twist on smores - we have one of these. Just google for campfire smores maker

We normally break the marshmallows in 2 pieces first because it works a little better. Something about the graham cracker being toasted just gives it a better flavor (IMHO).

For a changeup on the smores, put a caramel on the end with the marshmallow and make a shutterupper!

Has anyone ever roasted peeps before? I know, I know, it sounds crazy. Peeps are disgusting! But let me tell you, you roast them over the fire and then the sugar coating crystalizes. Delicious!

Very simple CJ. Big pot of boiling water and zip loc bags. I recomend freeze bags. Cut up what ever you want in your omlete, add eggs, and drop into boilng water, and let boil tell eggs set..

Paper bags are kinda tricky. Though everything in a PAPER bag, use a stick to hang bag over coals, just dont get the bag to close to the coals.
Both work pretty kewl.

Or baked potato omelets. Wrap potatoes in foil and cook in/over fire until soft. (we usually do this the night before, so the potatoes are ready to go in the morning.) Cut a hole in the potato and scoop out potato to make a cavity large enough for an egg + fixin's. Crack egg into potato, add fixin's (ham, cheese, onion, whatever you want) and mix together. Replace foil around potato and set back in fire until egg is cooked.

That sounds great too!

Regarding omelets in zip lock bags, here's a recipie I got from the JetBoil site. I tried this out earlier this year and it worked well and tasted great. I recommend thicker bag because I did have one tear open. I cracked 10 eggs before leaving home and put them in a Nalgene widemouth water bottle. Much easier than trying to use eggs in the shell on a kayaking trip. Smile

Ziplock Bag Omelets (Camp Eggs)
Ingredients with precise measurements:
2 eggs
1 tbs. grated cheese
1 tbs. finely chopped green peppers
1 tbs. finely chopped onion
salt and pepper

Directions: Fill cooking cup to the max safe line (1 cup) with water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low boil. Place all ingredients in zip-lock snack bag and remove as much air from the bag as possible and zip closed. Place bag in boiling water. After about 1 minute remove bag from water and move mixture around in bag and place back in boiling water. Repeat about ever minute until eggs are cooked to your liking (about 5 mins).
