A collection of recipes and tips for cooking meals over a campfire. Now with even more recipes and tips.


Fresh outdoor air and long woodland trails, a sleeping bag in the tent and smoke spiraling skyward… soon add up to a hearty appetite. It’s time to eat! Cooking over an open fire can be a delightful experience or a complete disaster. But remember, there is more to outdoor cooking than hot dogs, hamburgers and S’mores. With a little planning, and a few helpful hints, a meal deserving of your appetite can be prepared. Included in this book are recipes of varying difficulty. Not all recipes require cooking, but even those are meant to go with meals that do need cooking. All can be prepared with the proper utensils and ingredients. The one and only way to learn to cook on an open fire is to do it. You will have successes. You will have failures. Learn from them and the next time will be better. Luxuries such as the kitchen range or even a wood cook-stove are relatively recent inventions. Call upon your heritage and enjoy the great outdoors as if it were your very own spacious, comfortable kitchen or dining room.
