- Diced steak or chicken
- Diced vegetables
Prepare the ingredients before going camping and place them into airtight zip locked bags. Also bring something to marinate the ingredients with. Anything will work; salad dressing, salsa, beer, barbecue sauce. Place the meat and vegetables in a large zip lock bag and let them marinate with whatever marinade you brought. It might be wise to bring a few extra bags in case you have a large amount of food to season. Marinate the meat and vegetables for an hour. Place the marinated items onto skewers. and grill over the open fire. You can substitute ingredients and vegetables as you prefer. Enjoy!
- 1 package of large pita bread (or premade pizza crust)
- 1 can of pizza sauce (or spaghetti sauce)
- 4 slices salami (or pepperoni)
- 3 slices of bacon
- Bacon should be sliced into small pieces
- 1 large bag of shredded mozzarella cheese
- Sliced vegetables of your choosing
- Tin foil
Spread the sauce on the pita and then spread the cheese evenly on top of the sauce. Place the vegetables and meat on top of the cheese. Make sure the flame of your fire is not too high, and then put the food on tin foil and place over the open fire. Melt for about ten to twelve minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Feel free to alternate ingredients as you wish and pick your favorite pizza ingredients.
- Ground chuck
- Cheese of your choice
- Pepper jack works well, as does cheddar
- Garlic salt
Use the ground chuck to prepare medium sized meatballs. Stuff the meatballs with cheese, and then flatten them into patties. Season the patties with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Then place the patties over the fire and cook. With foil or a small skillet cook the bacon over the fire. Place the cheese on top of the burgers just before they are finished cooking, then place the bacon and potato on the stuffed burgers. Absolutely delicious!

Fresh Cajun Chipotle Campfire Fish
- Fresh fish
- The fresher the better. Bring frozen if you’re not planning on catching many fish. Fish is always better when eaten within the first two hours after catching.
- 3 lemons
- 1 cup of olive oil
- 3 tablespoons of black pepper
- 1 teaspoon chipotle
- 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons of salt
Fresh fish makes the best campfire feast, especially if you are able to catch a massive amount. The first thing you must do is mix all the lemons, chipotle, olive oil and pepper together with the salt, making sure all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Add the fish, smothering it in with all the ingredients. Place the seasoned fish on the grill and let the fire do its job for about 8 to 12 minutes, depending on how hot it is. Then turn the fish over and cook for an additional 8 to 12 minutes. When flipping the fish do your best not to let the marinade drip into the fire.
