The Camp Jack
I remember one miserable elk hunt where my poor judgment of eating offered food caused a great deal of entertainment to my hunting companion and annoyance to my horse as I had to dismount and head for cover about every five minutes.
Our own Larry Fischer, cooking for the most recent PBS Youth Hunt.
(Larry was not the cook on Guy's elk hunt.)
I can't say it was the chicken, but I'm pretty confident it was and I just happened to get a bad piece. This particular hunting companion was long on hunt and low on food most all the time. I want a bit more out of my hunting experience than just the chase and kill. Setting a nice camp is also a big part of it to me. There are times when you're alone and on the move for a quick trip so jerky, apples, granola, oatmeal, sandwiches pretty much can cover it. But with two hunters or more for any extended period of time, there is no reason to eat poorly. Let the expert in the group cook; learn so you can help out in the future.
I guess that comes back to choosing your hunting partners wisely. If the game is poor, there is no need for the food to be.
Chicken Wings ala Coke
By Colleen Sloan of Log Cabin Grub
This recipe came from a Scoutmaster as his favorite easy dish that tastes great.
Put enough chicken wings in a 12" Dutch Oven to feed everyone 4 or 5 wings each. Add a big bottle of catsup and 1 3/4 cans of cola. Cover and cook at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. (Drink the rest of the soda while you wait.)
350°=10 bottom and 15 top briquettes (or 12 briquettes in a Volcano>.)
