Elaine L...you mentioned BbQ? Tarheel and I have talked about having a Barbeque carvan thru the Virginia and the Carolinas. Every stop would be at a different place

Do you travel with a Smoker in tow (meat smoker that is)? We're planning an all night, slow roast bbq next fall.... I'm sure we could squeeze in a couple extra, squeezing out will definitely be the issue......

We all love to eat to good food, but it's like that old saying "It's not the destination, it's the journey". That's what I love about cooking at rallies, the journey to the meal. By the time dinner comes, I'm not hungry... I've already ate mine during the course of the cooking.

I like the point raised about cost. Cost is not the issue, I can buy good ingrediants for roughly the same cost as other meal types. The up charge for better meals is absorbed in the volume of people. This past weekend included, one full breakfast, one stellar dinner, one continental breakfast, and two nights camping for roughly $70..... I spent more on gas getting there and back! You cannot put a dollar amount on the time that the volenteers put into making the meals so very nice.

It's all about the people and not the food.

Doug,
I don't cook barbeque there are many more talented people than me for that. I do yeast breads, a fair amount of grilling some unusal vegetable dishes...and I eat!

Hi Aaron,

Well, I'm signed up for my first Rally at NorCal..it's amazing to read this thread, gives me a perspective of what kinds of ideas about food and dining that goes on in these rallies!..I've been involved in a lot of fundraising/event planning as far as preparing, and serving folks at my husband's non-profit organization!..this rally thing sounds like it could be as simple or as complex as folks want, I guess!..

I hope the bottom line of all of this is the experience for me to meet and greet members who've been on the different threads that I've participated in and enjoy.

Btw, I did get around to trying out a recipe for that creme brulee..gosh, it was rich, rich, rich!..recipe turned out wonderful, but not something I'd make every nite!..I'll take cream puffs loaded w/whipped cream instead..

codybear,
Glad the Creme de Brule turned out well, it is definitely a rich dish if done right. My wife loves fresh creme horns...but only gets them when I am home for more than a week or flies into Toronto apparently there is an old fashioned bakery right across the street from the hotel where she stays

We're going camping Columbus Day holiday weekend, as we do every year. I always grill Bratwursts marinaded in beer, placed on a bun with spicy mustard and saurerkraut. We also have German Potato Salad and lots of beer. I can't wait!

It is way different that my recipe...actually, it is mostly different than my technique. I stir the cream over low heat for about 15 minutes stirring constantly and use a stand mixer to wisk the egg yokes and sugar and slowly pour the thickened cream into the eggs while the whisk is going full speed and then finish as she describes and I get an extremely light and fluffy custard. My wife will eat it every time I make it...hummm, maybe it is time to experiment with the microwave convection oven in the Airstream.

I also like the "tube steak" approach. There are hot dogs available in virtually any configuration from the kind that dyes the bun red (my personal favorite) to tofu dogs for those with more refined tastes. They are easy to store and cook and can be easily rinsed-off if dropped on the ground. Throw in some beans and chips and you have a meal fit for a king.

Here's my recipe and picture of the creme brulee I did: I didn't have one of those mini blow torches, so I put the custard under the broiler for a minute.

Also added fresh blueberries on top..I've had it w/strawberries, raspberries, kiwis served at the restaurant.

Creme horns are a rolled pastry filled with either a vanilla or chocolate creme icing. They are very good, if you don't mind the sugar rush.
