Camp fire cooking

10 posts in this topic

I cook most of the same stuff that I would cook on a charcoal grill, only exceptions would be bigger stuff that is better with the cover on, but I'm sure you could also do them with foil. I've done burgers, steak, ribs, chicken breasts, brats, this weekend I did chicken thighs. Start your wood fire an hour early, gets some coals built up, at the same time I put some small pieces of wood on the grate to 'sanitize it' as they burn off, let the fire die down, scrape the coals into a pile off to the side, and start grilling. Have some small pieces of wood to add to the fire to keep it going and hot, and some tin foil for the grate in case the gaps are too wide. Easy to do and you get the wood fire taste.

We make a lot of hot dogs on a stick, smores, and pie iron items like ham and cheese, fruit pies, breakfast omelets in toast. Ocassionally we'll venture into the more traditionally grilled things as well (burgers,steaks).

Anything with the cast-iron. Blackened steaks are really nice with that wood-fire flavor.

I absolutely love the Cee Dub campfire cooking show. He uses a Dutch Oven in complete silence better than anyone!

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
