    I've never been one for cooking in the outdoors so when my day is done and I've had a few beers in me I will fire up the Colman and throw a steak in the pan with some salt and pepper. Brown it on both side and eat it with some Red Sauce.

    After that it is lights out.

    Mmmmm, Bacon! Everything goes better w/ Bacon!

    For a quick breakfast, my weakness is pop tarts. Frosted strawberry or blueberry!

    A cooked breakfast:
    Hash brown scramble - shredded hashbrowns, eggs, green peppers, onion, mushrooms, sausage or bacon, cheese all cooked together and served with hot salsa and sour cream!

    Corned beef hash and some fried eggs cooked in it!

    Dinner:
    Varies a lot, but I like a good marinated flank steak or a simple pasta dish after a long day on the river. Nothing like sitting around the campfire with a good dinner and the drink of your choice! Fire up a cigar afterwards and it's golden!

    Breakfast: Thick bagel w/ cream cheese and coffee. Quick, no cleaning, and fills the gut.

    Beat me to it. That said ...... the secret ingredients are ...... Oh hell tell them Fred: Rice wine vinegar and shaved/sliced fresh Ginger.

    But given you/I've spilled the beans, as it were, a different one. Take a huge pile of pork tenderloins/chops, first browned in butter, then into a large pot and covered with cream of mushroom soup. Add sliced Yukon or red spuds, salt/pepper to taste and cook until spuds are done. Side of sliced green beans and you've a food group of the Gods.

    Tin foil meals were the best growing up as a kid camping with the Boy Scouts. Dice up some onions, carrots and potatos. Mix in some burger and season it all with a little butter and Johnny's Seasoning salt. Wrap everything up in tin foil, throw it in the camp fire for about 10minutes and you're good to go. Fast and easy.

    I got interested in DOs several years ago and have several sizes. You CAN literally cook anything in one but my favorite usually revolves around a stew or pot roast. I love comfort food. Another favorite is a "dump cobbler" desert. A real crowd pleaser.
    That said though, my MO rolling into camp usually involves a beer and pizza in town (so the first night is greetings and cocktails only) and I always pick up a large Hawaiian pizza for the cooler. Anytime day or night, if I get hungry I can have a pizza snack. I often hike with a Hawaiian too. Has all the food groups, keeps well, good cold, a quick fix, delicious, and no cleanup. Can't get more user friendly in my book.

    As a kid, these foods always tasted way better in the Beartooths than they ever could in the backyard or kitchen:
    #1 Brookies, eggs, bacon
    #2 Pork chops, carrots, onions, potatoes, butter in foil
    #3 Beef & barley soup, $1 wheat bread to dunk
    #4 Monster brown trout in foil with garlic, onions, butter
    #5 Percolator coffee, corn flakes, fire to dry off the tent dew, cold log to sit on

    Man I'm looking forward to June. My AM plan starts the night before making sure everyone has all they want to drink. Then its up early before the hungover ones, a quick chorizzo egg and cheese scramble in a steaming flour tortilla eaten on the trail to my favorite stretch. Two hours of solo fishin and back to camp before anyone knows I was gone. Then someone gets up and makes a huge breakfast and then the beers come out. Only the dedicated will make it to the evening hatch. Being 50 has its rewards.
