A silver turtle is delicious! You lay out a piece of foil and into it you put ground beef, onions, veggies, and a dash of salt and seasoning. Layer the different ingredients. Then wrap the foil up and place on grille over fire. One of the most delicious meals you'll ever have! (08/04/2006)
Gotta have a stove. I have a cast iron frying pan and we always make sloppy joes when we go camping. Fry up the hamburger, add a can of brown beans and some BBQ sauce and serve on the buns. (09/12/2006)
Campfire Pancakes have always been big hit with the kids. You'll need a good heavy griddle. I use a square aluminum lid off an old Maytag ringer washer. Make sure it's been cleaned and seasoned with bacon grease. You'll want to cook that first anyway. Build a good fire and get most of the wood burned so you just have hot coals, this makes for even heat. Only add small pieces of wood or charcoal if you need more heat. We like Bisquick in the shaker bottle it's convenient. We use real eggs pre-cracked in to plastic bottles, you could use egg beaters too. Leave some of the bacon grease on the griddle, pour one 4-5 inch cake and use it to soak up the extra grease. Then fold it and leave it in the corner of the pan to slide around the pan when the cakes start sticking. Bon apetite! (02/23/2008)

Something that is neat to have, is a Coleman oven, not a stove but an oven. We bought ours at a sporting goods store and it cost about $35.00. It collapses flat when you're not using it. It sets up in about 30 seconds. Place it on top of your Coleman stove and you can have baked potatoes, cakes, breads, all kind of things. We really loved ours. (09/20/2008)
