1 cup of biscuit mix
1/4 cup or less of water, add gradually

Use about 1/4 of the mixture. Shape into long strips. Wind around stick and cook over coals. (Carry mix in plastic bag, add water and mix in bags)

12 inch square of foil per biscuit
biscuit mix

Pour water into the biscuit mix and stir with a pencil sized stick until a ball of dough forms around the stick. Keep stirring until you have a biscuit sized doughball (about a 2 inch ball of dough).

Grease the foil.

Drop the ball of dough onto the greased foil and seal with a foil wrap. Allow plenty of room for the biscuit to expand because the dough will rise while it is baking.

Place the foil packet on the coals and cook for about 10 minutes.

Turn the foil packet occassionally to get even browning on both sides of the biscuit.

OK - here is a slight variation on the Biscuits --

I get a stick that is about 1 1/2 to 2" wide - cut the end straight and clean it up. Take a can of Grand Biscuits, get one out and place it center on the end of the stick. Now wrap and stretch the dough around the end of the stick - coming up a couple of inches. Put it over the campfire - turning contently until golden brown. Pull of end of stick and now it is formed in the shape of a little cup. Fill with a little vanilla snack pack pudding and then top with some chocolate frosting.

Poof - campfire eclairs (Biscuits). I guess if you just wanted the plan biscuit you could leave out the pudding and frosting - but why?

^^ A friend of mine did a variation of this. He took a piece of 3/4" dowel rod about 4" long, rounded the business end and drilled a 3/8" hole into the other end. He attached the 3/4" dowel to a 3/8" dowel for a handle.

To use it, the operator would coat the business end lightly with oil or cooking spray then mold and form the biscuit dough over it completely. Cook it over the fire, then pull it off the mold. Now you can fill it with jam, jelly, cream cheese & bacon mixture or the vanilla pudding and chocolate frosting trick.

The whole process from start to finish can also be quite entertaining to watch. My buddy brought a handful of these to our church campout. Nothing funnier than watching the pastor's wife fix one of these!:hihi:
