10 Great Camping Recipes
Cook fish over the campfire in foil or leaf packets for an easy, tasty meal. (Best for smelt or other small fish.) See our campfire fish recipe.
These ribs are made with a unique coffee rub mixture that features a hint of cocoa. See our coffee-spice rubbed ribs recipe.
Beer Can Chicken may look a little startling, but grilling a chicken upright over an open can of beer results in the moistest, most succulent, and most flavorful chicken you’ve ever tasted. See our beer can chicken recipe.
Grilled Corn is so easy. The creamy chili-lime sauce brings out the crunchy, grilled flavor. See our grilled corn recipe.
5. Hobo Packs
Hobo Packs are great for camping and just a fun way to cook (with little clean-up!). Cooking in foil combines the freshness of steaming with the intense flavor of grilling, since the high heat caramelizes the food on the bottom of the pack. See our hobo pack recipe.
This camping favorite works well with any live fire or can just as easily go into a hot oven. See our grilled vegetables recipe.
Grilled onion is an easy, delicious recipe for the campfire or just grilling outdoors. Always a big hit! See our grilled onion recipes.
S’mores are a campfire favorite! Here’s a recipe for homemade graham crackers and fun s’more combinations!
