    Campfire food

    Shop Now
    I'm going on a cabin-in-the-woods adventure in a few days, and I'd love to hear some campfire cooking suggestions, since all I can come up with at the moment is hotdogs on a stick. I can take cold/perishable food with me, so anything goes.

    Just about any meat goes on a stick. Veggies in foil in the coals.

    What about marshmallows? Camping's just not the same without roasted marshmallows. Paleo marshmallows anyone?

    When I was little we used to take ground beef made into pattys and place them with sliced potatoes and onions inside of foil and cook in coals untill done. Since white potatoes are out pehaps you could use sweet potatoes. I would also roast some nuts on the fire.

    If you can bring a portable grate or build some kind of grill setup, you can cook pretty much anything. Also, bringing an iron skillet would give you much flexibility in what you can make.

    Long-time scout here! Made a few fire meals in my time.
    Fish on a bamboo racket! (I guess any green stick could be used - must be something bendable and somewhat burnresistant).

    I made a picutre, lol

    Hope you get the idea.

    You could also just put the stick through the fish and roast it that way.

    Anything put in alu foil and thrown into embers. Also, you can get alu trays/boxes, put stuff in that (veggies, meat, seasoning, water either just to not have the food burn/dry out, or to make a broth) and have a really good meal that way.
    If you have a heavy iron pan, you can make just about anything.

    Ah, memories of trout my dad just caught first thing in the morning; Mom frying them up in a big iron skillet, nothing else needed; just the best part of camping up in the high Rockies.

    Camp dutch oven! You can do amazing campfire cooking with one that's designed to go in the fire. I want one for this summer.

    Scout Master here can weigh in too.

    Tin Foil Dinners are very easy. Put what ever you want in, Add seasonings, roll up and cook in the coals section of your fire.

    TIP - put cabbage or kale & just a little bit of water in bottom of tin foil. it will help prevent the meat and other veggies from burning.

    Other More important TIP - bring long enough pair of tongs to fetch food package out of coals.


    FRISBEE's make great dinner plates. You can easily clean them and then play after dinner. We always load up on the $1.00 ones at Walmart in Spring.
