What's your favorite campfire chow for those overnight or backcountry outings?

I have a new favorite that someone told me about, goes like this:
Take a large green, red, or orange bell pepper..... cut the top off like a pumpkin and carve out the interior. Fill with preferred ingredients. Put pepper lid back on, wrap in foil, throw it in the cooler for cooking in the campfire later. Set in coals for 30-45 minutes.
The sky is the limit on ingredients.
I have done a Mex version... ref beans with cooked & seasoned ground beef + Picante + shredded cheese + diced tomatoes. Sour cream on the side.
... and a breakfast version... Roast beef hash + raw egg + shredded cheese.
Really easy and so good at the campfire. I'm thinking of more combos that might be good.
My alltime desert favorite was a Dutch Oven baked blueberry pie that Scratch or Crusty made one night at the claims. Damn, that was good. cloud9.gif

I make stuffed peppers at home all the time, and never thought of taking them out camping. I think one of my favorites is the foil pack Cowboy dinners, with hash browns on the bottom, cooked in the Dutch oven so the hashbrowns get crispy on the bottom. Think I'll make some for the next trip up to the claim!

I have Dutch ovens we use here at home, never thought to take them camping.
I usually save my cooler room for beer and milk and I eat canned dinty Moore or raviolis. Chef boyardee takes care of me out there!

Normally when I'm camping, food is just fuel, so I don't put much time or effort into it. A can of chili, hot dog roasted on the fire, or a freeze-dried meal gets the job done and gets me back to doing what I'm doing. But something about a long hard day's work and then a good meal out in the field sure does make the experience better

It is hard to beat hot dogs or brats on the campfire. happy070.gif

I like bacon on a stick! After you're finished you can use the stick as a bacon sickle.

Normally I am out all by my oneiz's. And then just like Crusty was saying, "pull over off the trail, shove it in, and get back at it". But this weekend was my once-a-year camping trip where I invite several different families from my community. I always invite a large group of people and most of them never been camp in the mountains before. So they rely on me to bring the fixin's and toys! This year was kind of Chaos. I brought the four-wheeler and the dirt bike, but forgot the ramp. I brought the bread and peanut butter but forgot the jelly. I bought lots of cereal... But yep, forgot the milk! Plenty of bacon on a stick though so we all had fun. Woody.

Heck with the rest, bacon on a stick cures all ills!
