While this isn't near as fancy as Rally's famous lamb roast, it was def. quite tasty for my first time trying it out!

Pizza Calzones on the charcoal grill



While it may not be what you typically think of when camping, it's pretty simple & fairly quick. Basically you make your dough & roll it out like you would as if to make a pizza. Spread whatever goodies you like over half the dough -though not sauce, since you are suppose to have that on the side for dipping - fold it over, crimp the edges and let'er rip!
You'll need to roll them out though on something other than your pizza stone though, as it needs to be on the grill heating up. When you can spit on the stone & it sizzles, you know you're ready
Mine took about 12 mins on the first side, then 8 mins on the other. The crust/dough itself came out perfect. Thin, crunchy layer outside with good moist crust below that. Tasted just like it came out of a brick oven, i also added hickory chips into the coal to add more flavor. Had a blast making these for the first time.
You will also need a proper cold beverage while standing at the grill, per the rules of grilling!

Awesome effort dirtyRU, they look good enough to eat!
Dunno bout the spit test though haha

Havent seen Rally's roast but I can tell you Venom does an awesome roast in a dutch oven. Very sweet & tender. Roast lamb, roast veg, cold beer, Subaru vids playing on the laptop sitting aound the campfire, koala grunting in the background...aaah that's the life!

Default chuck wagon...

I love salmon..so I marinade it with teriyaki, also a rub..Zip loc it..stow it in cooler.
Wrap in foil...cook on fire Coals or fry pan until meat is pink..
Don't forget the beer...

black bean burritos..
I used this one whilst traversing Mt.hood timberline trail.. 42 miles in two days (donning a 50lb pack and lots of elevation gain/descent)real power food..!
take a can of black beans empty in ziploc bag.
pre cook brown rice , empty in ziploc bag.
bring a pot of water to a boil whilst bags are in pot...No mess to clean..
Keep an eye on bags so they don't touch sides or bottom and melt.
take a fry pan and lay tortillas in with a bit of veg oil. low heat..
Add a couple slices of pepper jack on tortilla melt..
add black beans, rice to tortilla cheese melt.
topping of fresh cut cilantro, onions, top with salsa..

A brew to wash it down.



breakfast burritos
I take the freeze dried bacon/eggs cook them in pouch.
use a fry pan , veg oil add tortilla..low heat
add a couple slices of pepperjack melt
add bacon/egg mix to tortilla melt
top with salsa
enjoy with a cup of joe...

Lost me on the last one scooby. Beer would go well with that one as well. UNLESS, your in West Viginia back woods where whiskey is the prefered drink with breakfast. Those guys are tough.

im yoinkin the lamb idea for the anual march trip in the sandias- sounds about perfect to tease the competeing foodies with, simple but righteous

unfortuanly roo tail is nearly impossibly and insanely expensive to get in new mexico, but pork skewers over cedar coals with a good dark ale is always a winner- no fuss no muss, as long as no one drops theirs into the fire

holy awesome those calzones look good

Awesome idea for a thread, I love camp cooking. I'll ad some recipes when I get more time. This barely counts as cooking but I figure I'd post it anyway.Some friends and I go on an annual hot springs camping trip and we try to go to a different hot springs each year. At one hot spring we go to, in the mammoth lakes region, the hot water that feeds the hot springs tub comes up in a little pool above the tub and there is a pipe that goes to the tub with a valve on it to control the temperature. This is looking down into the little pool: The BLM owns the land and has covered the top of the little pool with a metal grate to protect people because it is extremely hot but of course people have pried the grate open. So we made little "baskets" to put eggs into out of what ever we could find and lowered them in:Then we brought some salt and a bottle of hot sauce down to the tub and soaked while our breakfast cooked it self:Perfect breakfast!

An enthusiastic bushwalker, skier and pioneer of white-water canoeing, he foresaw how a knowledge of bushcraft could save lives in the Second World War. To achieve this end, he initiated and led the Australian Jungle Rescue Detachment, assigned to the Far East American Air Force. This detachment of 60 specially selected A.I.F. soldiers successfully effected more than 300 rescue missions, most of which were in enemy-held territory, without failure of a mission or loss of a man. (Ref; cover of his famous book "10 bushcraft books"). Yes very well known for survival skills, including rudimentary improvised cooking.

^ Gidday Geoff, and a warm to the ORS forum, mate ... .

I assume that you are referring to Robert Graves in this post:

I haven't read any of his stuff, so enlightenment is in order ...

That's the guy. His 10 Bushcraft Books are available as a pdf file here:

Great, straight forward writing. I've used the finger twist method of twine making. It works great.
