CAMP COOKING

CAMP COOKING!

This is a completely different kind of cooking on the uncontrolled heat of a campfire! BUT—-

NOTE: Before your start to plan the meals, please read about fire safety below.

Fall is a great time to cook outdoors and have fire pits!

CAMPFIRE SAFETY…

Please follow safety rules when locating your campfire. The campfire should be away from trees and tree roots, leaves, etc.

Never leave a fire alone.

Never burn poisonous plants-poison ivy, poison sumac, or poison oak branches.

When you are finished, scatter the coals, cover with dirt, and douse with water to be sure it is out!!

Don’t burn when the fire weather is high-even on your own property. This is when there are winds, no leaves on the trees, and dry conditions.

RECOMMENDED COOKBOOKS...

Here is where I started…

 I got the idea for a campfire a few years back. It was based on the experiences of eating outside and camping and picnics. Generally, we use charcoal for grilling but for camping, wood is found where the campfire is built.

This lead me to having a cooking area near the cabin and also to using the same area as a fire pit in cool weather with the deck.

I searched for recipes for camp cooking and ordered my first book on basic camp cooking. After reading and deciding what I would do, I got 2 more in the areas that I wanted to expand.
