cooking

Doing a camping trip in the next month or so and have been roped in as the camp cook. It's a three day trip, what would be good foods to bring given we're going to be camping out on public land in the western US? Was thinking eggs and corn beef hash for breakfast, something light for lunch, but drawing a blank on dinners. It'll be a three day trip, so will need foods that will stay well in a cooler. Have a double propane burner, and a single butane one.

    Bacon
    Eggs
    Steaks
    Potatoes

    If you can use a real fire instead of the cuck stove stick some sweet potatoes in foil in it for an hour and grill some ribeyes.

        This. Campfire brats are pretty tough to beat when it comes to easy PrepHole food.

      Potatoes come in a cooking vessel already, throw them shits in the fire directly and peel the skin off.

    Brown off chicken and veggies, add chicken stock, once warm add noodles.

    Chilli in whatever way

    Cubed beef, potatoes and veggies pot roast

    Those are my favorites. Require just one pot, taste great and easy to make.

    One of my go to meals if I'm camp cooking for a crowd is Shepard's/cottage pie.

    Serves 4:
    You will need:
    >1 pound of beef or lamb
    >1 diced onion
    >1 bag frozen mixed veggies
    >1 small bottle worstchester sauce
    >1 can of beef consumee
    >2 tbsp of flour mixed with some herbs and spices (I use dried thyme, garlic powder, nutmeg, salt and black pepper)
    >4 pack of instant mashed potatoes in cups (or just use regular instant mashed potatoes)

    1. Brown the beef
    2. Add the diced onion and let it cook until soft
    3. Add the flour and stir
    4. Add the beef consumee and maybe a little water if it's too thick
    5. Let it come to a boil, then add rest of veggies and worsty sauce to taste
    6. Let it cook while you make the potatoes and serve them together

    If you're feeling frisky add a little beer before step 4.

    I also make jambalaya from a box with andouille sausage and canned crab

    This is all you need

    Though if you're just car camping for 3 days you can bring any normal food just pack a cooler with ice and freeze your meats beforehand

      while this is all practical and fine, it's the least "camp food" camp food that ive ever seen

      >gorp
      >potatoes
      >onions
      >eggs
      >smoked sausage
      >oil
      >coffee
      >stuff for smores

      now that's camp food, my boy. all the better if you catch a trout or catfish.

        Notice it's under uncooked meals. They're a lot better to eat if you don't have a heat source. Tortilla + PB is a pretty nice calorie dense meal. You can put pretty much whatever you want in them. I get the kind that add some fiber so I can take a shit in the river more easily.

    Not OP but didn't want to make a new thread.

    How do you guys like cooking over fire? You carry cast iron and go right onto the fire or do you pack a grill or titanium stove with lighter cookware?

      Depends on the camping.
      Car camping in bring at least a metal rack to cook over, cast iron depending on what is on the menu, and over the fire on a stick/ on the coals

    That's not PrepHole cooking that's just cooking. You can bring and cook anything you'd make at home.

    I ripped a propane stove/oven out of a dumpy camper. It is going to be my mobile rig

    has anyone made dehydrated meals in an oven before? apparently it's possible if your oven's temperature can go low enough. my air fryer has a dehydrate setting but it's too small to make a full meal.

      So 170-175F technically qualifies a dessication(if I spelled it right) but you you would have to do it for like 16hrs+. Mine automatically shuts off at 12 hrs. I happen to cook steak this way on 170-180 for 8-12 hrs depending on size and how much time I have. I am assuming you know this is not going to be anything like Freeze Drying

      Yes. But it won't work very well without a convection function to move the air around. I've used my convection oven a bunch of times for chili peppers, but if you don't have one a food dehydrator shouldn't run you more than $40 though.

    When me and my bunch go car camping, one night is always brats, another is always steaks, and we usually have pancakes for breakfast at least once. Breakfast hash is pretty good too. Keep it simple, the more elaborate you go the more can go wrong. One of the best camp dinners I ever had was 2 grilled cheeses that one of my buddies fried in garlic butter. If you have access to them, fresh caugh fried fish is great too.

    Allow me to introduce you to Kent Rollins. Start with the older videos as they contain more of his work as a camp chef. The newer ones are a bit of everything.

        It's the best. I still go backpacking regularly, but camp cooking's why I overland so much these days. Waking up to a sunrise in the wilderness and having some fresh biscuits and jam and a bacon egg skillet. That's living.

    Legit the greatest food you will ever consume on a camping trip. Nothing like fresh bread in the morning.

    Camping Philly Cheesesteaks are amazing.

    Get some pre-sliced steak cuts, who gives a shit about quality for camping
    A shitload of cheese, I use provolone
    White or yellow onions
    Jalapenos
    Buns

    All of it cooks in a single pan, toast the buns before you cook the meat/cheese/veggies. Super tasty, plenty of spice for otherwise bland food (but you're camping, who fricking cares?). and super easy.

    I like to swing for the fences when cooking on car camping trips, but sometimes you just have to say frick-it, you won't have a full kitchen available. Make some heavy-ass food that makes people feel full, and don't worry about finesse or nuance. Also, always add an extra cooler for alcohol. Don't try to fit it all in with the groceries; that's a rookie mistake.

    Enough meal suggestions already so my 2c is just to keep it simple and less packaging the better - none at all is ideal. There's a Spanish documentary maker Eugenio Monesma. The videos where you see the workers making their meals while out remote on the job is the best. Stews over fire are common. But the way they prepare is couldn't be more straightforward. Cutting the vegetables in hand straight into the pot without fricking around with a chopping board. Leg of linen-wrapped leg of goes straight in - no cooler required.
