Thanksgiving

This year I convinced my family and friends go out camping for the big turkey day. Now what? The bird is going to be smoked, so that is covered. We are boondocking so no use of plug-ins. I do not have an oven in the Bambi. But, we will have are grills, a couple of Dutch ovens, and stoves. What are your ideas?

Sweet potatoes...wrap in tin foil with butter, and grill just like you would regular potatoes.

Coincidentally, thinking same thing for this year thinking where can we (or want) to trek 2-3 hrs from So Cal Home base ? Where would it be private yet available during the holiday ?

Heavy duty tin foil and Mesquite would be a must.

The 4CU actually has an annual Thanksgiving Rally and they come up with a great meal.

Sounds like you have a good start already.

Breads and cobblers do very well in a Dutch oven. Bisquick type dough over a fire makes great bread. Warm mulling spice in a coffee pot for a drink.

Most anything you can make in an oven or on a stove can be made over a fire or coals. Lots could also be premade at home and heated

Bet you have a great day. Show us pictures of your feast.

get a digital remote thermometer (ie, Weber) and a Weber type grill and go for it. We had a rally and did 6 Turkey breasts on the grill and they came out great. we did 3 breasts per grill
We prepped the breasts by using a clean gauze ( diaper) saturated with butter and seasonings , wrapping in foil with water added and placing on grill. Watched till about 150 degrees than opened foil and finished to 165 degrees. This gave smokey flavor and browned.

I've made a great duck on a Weber grill by placing a drip pan under the bird and the coals in a circle on the perimeter.
Keep it covered.

We just did a turkey breast opened up w/o legs or wings in a DO and while it didn't get a nice browning it was one of the better ones we've done. And it was on (horrors!) a gas burner. Camp didn't allow fires. We'll do it again over fire on thanksgiving.

Just a bump for T-Day.
We plan to camp during the Holidays at a State Forest. My plan is to bring a couple turkey breasts which will be in marinade than grill them on our mini webber. Garlic Potatoes with cheese pre-made, just needs warm up and a 5th of Bulleit Rye for the cooks. What am I leaving out?
BTW if anyone has links to a GREAT Dutch Oven cobbler let me know. I'm wavering between this or a Pecan Pie...my wife's all time fav. but dang if I can figure out how to pull this off in the Dutch Oven without a ready disaster in the making ;(

Cobbler is super easy in the Dutch Oven and will go over great.

Just Google Dutch Oven cobbler recipes and lots will come up to include some from Lodge.

When camping I use lots of fresh berries and Krustyz cobbler crust boxes. I put some butter in bottom of oven layer the berries on that and then alternate and scoop the crust and berries. Ending up with a top layer of dough.

I use a dutch oven pot with legs and rimmed lid. I put the coals on top and bottom of pot and turn the whole thing several times while baking.

A layer of foil in pot makes clean up easier and a preheated pot is nice also especially if it is cold outside.

Enjoy

Bulleit takes care of cooks, great choice and you already answered the desert question.

Keep SWMBO happy.

Amen to that brother

Great suggestion on the cobbler. Pics. forthcoming.

I'm going to use a family heirloom cast iron enamel dutch oven that has chipped enamel (inside) and can not bear to part with. Why not re-purpose it for campfires? I'll use a tin foil covering than turn the lid upside down so it will hold some coals...remove the tops handle and use the hole to insert a heavy wire tool for lifting. Why not?!

I'm all for camp cooking and the results. Next trip we might get to try our Guardian Service Cookware Economy Trio but it will be on gas, first try. It's a pre 1956 heavy cast AL triangular set of 3 almost Dutch ovens that use one burner.

You could make these Pecan Bars at home, and keep them in your frig til ready to serve.

I made them for Thanksgiving last year, and they were well received by even the kids.

A Martha Stewart recipe, they are easy and delicious, and a great alternative to pecan pie.
