My barn buddies and I have made a few overnight trips and cooked in Dutch Ovens. We had a blast doing it. One night we had chicken pot pie with big ol' biscuits. We had brownies for dessert on night. We also had a chicken and rice dish one time. There are all kinds of recipes out there to use. We had as much fun making the dinners as we did riding.

yes. Same with our treks, we sometimes have a day off riding in the middle of the trek for some camp life, and love cooking in the camp (dutch) oven.

Ever tried making a loaf of fresh bread..? takes 3 odd hours to prep and bake and it dissappeared in bout 2 mins..

Scones are another easy to bake also.

My old cast iron camp oven fell off the pack horse and broke, so imported an aussie made spun steel oven.. fantastic..(smilies)

Well, if we camp in an area with electric, I bring a crock pot.

Throw in a pound or so of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and pour on a jar of salsa - preferably something with a lot of substance to it, like beans and corn.

Set to "low" and hit the trail.

When you get back, you have ready-to-eat fajita-style chicken. We bring along a bag of soft flour tortillas, and all the "fixins" for tacos/burritos. I'll heat the tortillas up in a skillet, and it's time to eat.

I also like red beans and rice with sausage, especially on those cooler riding days.

And you can't beat the flavor of steaks grilled over hot coals. . .and corn on the cob heavily-buttered and wrapped in tin foil to grill.

Geez. Now I'm hungry. . .

We have had pot lucks up at Ebenezer. Randy was grilling steaks and chicken k-bobs, and everyone brought something different. Kent made a HUGE pot of red beans and sausage and rice....YUM...Way too much fun. We are going on a trip in late October and we will be cooking some. Don't know if it will be Dutch Oven but we will not be anywhere close to a place to run to for dinner!

Chili :) Nothing better after a long day than a hot bowl of chili followed by s'mores. Mmmm.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Ditto.

Joe, I guess we'd better not try a long ride together. We would starve.

I'll eat anything someone else cooks without complaint. If it's left to me I'll whip up a quick sandwich and call it good, probably peanut butter and jelly since those ingredients travel well.

I tried doing that quick sort of meal but lately I have been getting a hard time for not keeping up to the required camp food standard apparently.. If you want a laugh, read about one of my mishaps in the camp kitchen, while I was trying to impress my smart ass riding mates....

In my website www.canterburyhorsetrailriders.org go to the stories section and scroll down to the headline Whisky Tango for the very funny evening... I am giving up trying to impress.. after this ...lol
