It's not a fast meal or as simple as a cup of noodles but it's easily the best tasting way to make food when camping. I LOVE camping and my friends and I have been cooking like every time we go camping.

We skewer EVERYTHING and cook it right over hot coals. This is a very popular way of cooking BBQ among Middle Easterns. All you really need other than the food is a few metal skewers. Not to mention, it's very healthy. No butter or cooking oil. The meat gets direct heat from the coals and the dripping fat almost like smokes the meat.

Here are some pictures, I can't believe I don't have more but usually when were cooking meat, cameras are the last thing on our minds lol.

Great timing for this thread. We are going camping and zip-lining in 2 weeks. Will try the banana boat. Thanks

Big can of sauce (avoid glass). Pasta of choice and some sausage.

Cook sausage over fire. Add to cooked pasta and stir in sauce. Done!

little late to the party (guessing OP's boy is well past Webelos age lol!), but I love foil packs. When camping with a large group, we'd have tupperware containers full of all the stuff pre-sliced- chicken, sausage, or hamburger, peppers, onions, potatoes, celery, carrots, corn and various seasonings ( basically anything you'd put in a beef stew) and let people make thier own.

CHili is real easy to make if you've pre-cooked the meat.

The troop also did a 'soup pot'- each boy brought a can of soup, and cream soups went in one pot, water based in another, and what came out tasted pretty good!

You can put anything in foil and on the coals, you can also boil ziploc bags! The boys loved making omlets- mix whatever you'd put in an omlet in a ziploc, then boil it!

(love the other ideas, too- I'm always open for something new to try while camping!)

^---Freezer bag cooking is where its at, been doing it for 15 + years

edit to add: You can also cook in the bag, one I do a lot is take a freezer bag and a smaller sandwich bag. Break up a brick of ramen in the big freezer bag add some pepper and seasoning of choice. Now in the smaller sandwich bag I add what I have dehydrated at the moment usually corn, peas ,bell peepers. Thro that bag in the freezer bag and a foil pack of tuna and this meal is ready for the pack.

Cook time take out the sandwich bag and fill with water for 1-2 hrs to re-hydrate the goods.
Then boil water (about 2 cups) while it it boiling drain your veggie bag and add all to the freezer bag.
Dump boiling water into freezer bag and wait about 10 mins.

Make a meatloaf the day before and put it in tin foil along with some seasoned potatoes.

If you're going on a long trip, you can freeze them. Either way it would make for a good meal.
