We get tired of the same old same old also. What I've done is bring a small crockpot and put a two pond chuck roast in it with less than a cup of water and add a whole bottle of Jack Daniels old nbr 7 original barbeque sauce (19 oz) and let it cook on high for the day. When it's tender I use two knives the shred it up and put it on hamburger buns. Makes a great no-fuss pulled beef barbeque sandwich!

This is a great thread and we should keep it going. I'm getting some new ideas and I thought we had our bases pretty much covered. My FIL always makes what he calls hamburger pie. Brown 1lb of ground beef, dump in 1 can drained cut green beans, and one can tomato soup. Heat it for a couple minutes and serve over hot buttery mashed potatoes. It's sweet and salty and just plain easy delicious food.

I will not be without my Dutch Oven. If you want to cook over a fire you need one of these. For the long stays there are several meals coming out of this, but the short weekends are usually frozen prepared with one on the grill under most cases.

Just google Dutch Oven recipes and you will be amazed by the versatility.

Meals on the road.

What do you do for meals while traveling? Cold cuts are obvious. Are you able to negotiate stopping at restaurants?

I just bought my first dutch oven last fall. I'm still figuring it out but I love it so far. Done mostly baking in it (biscuits, pineapple upside down cake, etc), and I've done some fish frys with it. I'm looking forward to our next camping trip because I'm going to try some new stuff. Maybe a whole chicken roasted with veggies, and I found a venison casserole that looks great. Very versatile and neat piece of equipment.

Usually we just load the kids with veggies, fruits and dry cereal for the AM to late afternoon runs. Limit the liquids until about 1 hr from a stop and then if I need to buy a meal it's FF under most cases. Sammies are usually a staple on a one run day then I limit it while at the CG so it does not get boring. I find if I let the kids pick a treat along the way it makes life easier.

Cold fried chicken and cold grilled chicken breast sammies are a fav of mine too.

I map out a truck stop or a full service rest area with my Truck GPS when we are ready to stop. Most of the time on the outbound we self contain and never step foot in the facilities which also makes it much easier and faster.

We recently headed to Cottonwood Az from WV and stopped at truck stops and rest areas for the night. I planned ahead of time and took a huge pan of lasagne with us. I froze the leftover spaghetti sauce and brought the pasta too. Deli sandwiches and chips for lunch and salad/lasagna or spaghetti and Italian bread. I had brats and hamburgers along but the Italian lasted for the 3-4 days till we got to our destination. We don't have little ones anymore just three hairy children. Lol. They're easy to feed ;-). With the motorhome the only bathroom stops we made were for the kids.

We got a 10 inch Dutch Oven at a flea market this winter. I restored it and we have been experimenting with it. We have done mostly breakfast. One of our new favorites is breakfast pizza in the dutch over. Just cook your eggs, sausage, peppers, onions, etc as usually. Put some crescent roll dough in the bottom of the oven and a little up the sides. Layer all the cooked ingredients and top with cheese. Bake in the dutch oven for 15 mins and you'll have some happy campers. Every time we fix it for friends they say, "Man that's a lot of food". We have never had leftovers.

We cook Steaks on the grill, turkey in a garbage can (Never died from the aluminum), Hamburgers & Hotdogs, Smoke ribs in the smoker, Chicken legs on the BBQ, and Chicken cutlets in the deep fryer and much more!

Sides we usually make large amounts of cold sides for the weekend. Mac Salad, Cucumber salad, Mozz salad and just put them out with every lunch and dinner. Hot sides would be green beans and breadcrumbs in a throw away pan on the BBQ, Corn on the cob, Potatoes every way, homemade mac and cheese, and sometimes micro veggies.

Some like to camp and cook as least as possible. We like to camp AND COOK as much as possible!! some watch birds we watch the smoker! The meals at camp are usually more gourmet then the ones we serve at home.

We use a deep fryer every once in a while and its the best! Chicken cutlets, fried pickles, fried ravioli, and the newest addition is fried Oreos!

Yea we are the crazy campers with all the gadgets lol
