I prefer cooking outside as well. For something quick...brats or sausage on the grill. A crowd pleaser.

I'm also into Dutch Ovens. I use the 'camp ovens' that have legs on them. I have three of various sizes and a D.O. table to use charcoal on. Great for meals or desserts. You can make any meal in them from breakfast to dinner. May add a little weight to your trailer (or your waist!) but its worth it. If you make cooking interesting and fun...you won't mind doing it and your meals won't be boring.

When the smell of Chocolate Turtle Brownies is wafting through the evening air in the campground...you are DA-MAN! (and you will make new friends by sharing)

I agree. Camp cooking has become an activity for my wife and I and our usual camping crowd. Those brownies sound good. Any particular recipe or just boxed brownies in the dutch? We did a pineapple upside down cake on our last camping trip in our camp oven. Turned out great! We also do a lot of biscuits in it for biscuits and gravy.

In Canada, they seem to be easily found at Canadian Tire. It's a KOOLATRON Lunch Box Stove. They get very hot! The newer ones have a cable that can be unplugged at the box. I had a newer one, but it didn't survive a tumble off the top step of a big combine. I did survive! I still use my old one, but the long cord is annoying to wrap up all the time.

I remember wrapping stuff in tin foil and putting it on the manifold to cook while driving between car races when younger.

Bit of a learning curve, but some of it was pretty good.

I take a along a 22" weber kettle frequently. Recenlty we bought the Kettle Pizza accessory, and has been a huge hit. We bring pizza crust, made at home ahead of time or store bought, then roll it out and everyone gets to create their own pizza. It's a lot of fun, but I wouldn't classify as an "easy meal". It takes time to roll out the crust properly.

We frequently stop buy the "latino grocery store" and get marinaded carne para asada too. Carne Asada tacos are very easy and enjoyed by our whole crew.

If we have electrical hookup the crock pot occasionally makes an appearance to make Posole, Chile, and Chile Verde. These meals are great beacue you just dump it in and let it go for several hours.

Lunch is an extremely informal event for us. Typically we just snack through mid-day. Fruit, cheese & Crackers, chips & dip, etc. Maybe left over from the night before.

One stop we found scrumptious fresh made chicken pot pies. Put them in the lunch box, plugged it in on the floor in the back seat of the truck. Yum!

I use those tinfoil pans, cover the food with tinfoil. Soup, chiken wings, perogies, you name it!
I have one as well....I started using it again when I bought the trailer...I put food items in it and go to the trailer and when I get there I can eat right away along with a adult beverage. Current favorite is home made burritos....

One of my favs from Boy Scout camping days is stuffed green peppers.

Make your favorite meatloaf recipe (I mix at home then bring in tupperware), then hollow out & stuff a green/yellow/red pepper with it. Put a little tinfoil around the bottom of the pepper and place directly onto your coals.

Acidity of the pepper, along with moisture from pepper and meat will keep it from getting brittle. Cook until the meat is browned, then remove and eat. (about 30 min)

First time I had it, I was wary of the black bottom (which looked absolutely scorched). But I have to tell you, the bottom was the most tasty & moist part of the pepper!!

A somewhat similar recipe online: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...rs-recipe.html
