    Summer foods

    My contribution to the old thread is we love anything and everything fresh from the gardens. We also love what is cooked on the grill or BBQed. Just mix those concepts together and you have a winner. For example, the classic BLT using lettuce and tomato fresh, bacon from a hog recently...

    Rub for pulled pork

    It all depends on who the judges are and who you are competing against. Different parts of the country have different preferences. Expecting to win a bbq contest with judges and other competitors from the same part of the country that you are not from is a difficult task. So let's assume this...

    Would you rent a BBQ if a company was offering this possibility

    That is a reasonable price.

    Whаt wаs thе first fооd tо bе dееp friеd?

    I don't know the answer to this trivia question. My son runs a trivia site. I will see if he has an answer or cares. On a tangent. The best foods to try deep frying are chicken wings and french fries.

    How Often?

    In the spring through fall at least 2 or 3 times a week here on the plains. In Nebraska we get the FULL 4 seasons, but only the winter slows us down a little. I have a great source for free firewood, a firepit and time to have fun. What more does one need. One of my fantastic (I would say...

    Roasting bananas on sticks

    Cooking a bananas on a stick over an open fire does not work. BUT put banana slices between marshmallows or fruit does work. Adapt. Improvise. Overcome. My kids and grandkids have learned those words of wisdom for life, including camping. If you follow those three words you can succeed at...

    Hot dogs cook too quickly

    You have two correct answers: 1 - cook them farther from the hot fire 2 - cook only over fires that are not too hot This relates to not only hot dogs, but other things cooked directly over open fires like marshmallows, rabbit, beans, etc.

    No campfires after 11 at night?

    I have no clue where you are that has this rule. Assuming it is too dangerous to have fire, most places do not let you have fire. If the problem is noise, then fire makes little noise, so it still makes no sense. If the problem is partying, you do not need a fire to party. The rule is...

    Individual campfire meal recipe

    Great recipe. I too have never considered using cream of mushroom soup. Great idea. If we can find fresh mushrooms at the right time of year, of course they are added too. We use whatever meat we have; chicken, fish, beef (any cut, usually leftovers), deer, rabbit, lamb, squirrel, quail, etc...

    We love those too, but have never made them for breakfast. We will have to try that. Thanks for the idea.

    Campfire doughnut treats

    I love the idea, but do not understand the concept. Can you be more specific as to the technique? Do you put oil in a cast iron skillet over the fire and then add the biscuit to it? When do you add the cinnamon and sugar? They would not be complete without frosting. We would love to try and it...

    Camp fire breakfasts

    I love the ideas. I have never made or had cinnamon rolls cooked over the open fire. It is just too much like baking to me, but I am always open to learning. I would add that fresh cooked fish works for every meal, including breakfast. We also love fresh locally picked berries to include over...

    Smores Twist

    We are old school. Everyone loves the original. BUT every decade or so you have to inject some fun. Many of our favorites have already been talked about. This is all about the kids, so... Standard stuff banana strawberry other berries and fruit (pineapple good, watermelon bad) meat (various...

    What do you love about grilling?

    Grilling brings me back to my youth, family cooking over an open fire, telling jokes, playing games and eating great food. Life, vacation, grilling and love are not about the meal, they are about who you share them with. I can remember as a kid a couple buddies of mine eating a couple opossums...

    Constant grease fires?

    On burgers, I would suggest about 80% fat. More fat. More fire. Less fat. Less flavor. It is a balance that needs to be learned.

    Constant grease fires?

    This is awesome advice.

    Constant grease fires?

    Definitely not the E310. That is what I have. It is an older one. I know because that was the hell I used to live through before I upgraded.
