Wood – -Campfire cooking requires a clean-burning, hot fire. This is only achieved with dry, seasoned wood.

Many public campgrounds supply firewood – call ahead to see what’s available.

I’m surprised you didn’t include the Boy Scout dinner, aka tinfoil dinner. Use a half pound of ground chuck for each camper and one baking potato. Lay out tinfoil and place the flattened hamburger in the middle and split the bite-sized cut up potato on either side. Add margarine or butter on top of the potato bites and salt and pepper to taste. Fold the foil from all corners to the center making sure the package is completely sealed. I use two pieces of foil to be sure no air can escape. Cook over campfire 30 to 40 minutes. To check done-ness, open foil pack and taste a bite of potato. If its cooked enough to eat, your meal is ready. If you’ve never eaten one of these before you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find the hamburger no longer tastes like a hamburger. It tastes more like steak. Simple to make and delicious !

Directions: Slice potato almost all the way through, but leave enough to hold it together. Slice the onion, and put one slice in between each potato slice. Sprinkle with bacon bits and a little dill. Wrap well with heavy aluminum foil and bury in the coals of the fire. Leave untouched for about 45 minutes, and test for doneness by piercing with a fork – the fork should lift out without lifting the potato. Cooking time depends on size of potatoes and strength of fire. Serve with pat of butter and a few sprigs of parsley.
On a Stick This is the most common way of cooking at campfires for kids. Stick a hotdog on a stick, give it to the kid, and let him cook. It’s a great way to warm up simple food like that, but it is also a useful way to cook individual servings.
