My favorite suggestion is to make lunch at breakfast. I used to do this all the time while backpacking, but it works while riding as well.

When you are done with breakfast, heat up a quart or so of water. Put a beans and rice, pea soup or other hearty, dried meal (not instant soup) into a wide mouth Nalgene bottle. Pour in your boiling water. Wrap tightly in something insulating. When camping I used my sleeping bag, kind of stuffing it up inside my stuff sack.

4 hours later it was cooked, still quite warm and ready to eat in a moment. Break out the long handled spoon and dig in. Many of the Zatarains rice and bean dishes are the right size, come in a small foil pouch and take almost no space to pack in or out. And if you have some beef jerkey to toss in, all the better.

fire is good...

I enjoy cooking good food while camping. The best way to enjoy a good meal is to marinate & then freeze the meat portion/sauce so that it keeps better over long periods. I've enjoyed meat stews 10 days in to a kayaking trip...

My favourite foods are grilled over an open fire



Indonesian Chicken Sate with peanut sauce, grilled peppers, onions & rice



or the cold alternative of all local foods: sheep's camenbert, rosemary rye & fresh slaw...

Hell yea! I have had mine for over 15 years and it is still going strong.
I got mine for Christmas all those years ago. Set it up on the front porch in the snow and cooked a 3# roast and potatoes with 9 briquettes! Fantastic.
Too bad they don't make them anymore as I wanted to add the smoker option.

All kidding aside, a lot of you are kick-butt serious about your food! There have been some awesome looking meals posted.

My favourite goes to fritzmovies for what looks like heaven for the mouth. Kudos!

I stick to beef jerky (some of the best across the country happens to be out of western Arizona in no -nam towns), trail mix and coffee. But, dang, maybe I shold change my ways, or hook up at the end of the day with riders who like to carry a lot more gear than I am comfortable carting about.

Great thread.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN BEAR STEW:

You will need one to two pounds of ground beef and one liter of whiskey (Scotch, bourbon, Canadian, your choice.)

Find public campground or picnic area on top or side of mountain. Gather rocks from area and pile on picnic table.

Unwrap hamburger and place in middle of next picnic table.

Retire to first table and sit drinking whiskey until stewed. When bear shows up to eat hamburger, throw rocks at him.

Serves one person or one bear, depending on how this works out.

You are very welcome.

New from my test kitchen!

Beef Strouganoff....

1 can of Roast Beef. (I bought a 6 pack at Costco)
1 package of Beef Ramin noodles
1 package of Cream Cheese
1 small can of mushrooms or fresh sliced mushrooms
Margrine, butter or vegatible oil

In the jet boil cozy or similar pan Heat 2 cups of water to a boil, add Ramin noodles and cook for a minute until they start to get soft.
Add flavor packet cover and set aside.

Melt butter in the fry pan and coat it well.
Fry mushrooms then set aside on a paper plate. I used the bottom of my Jet Boil stove.

Heat the beef in a fry pan and reserving the broth. If it is cold you can put everything in the pan until it heats up a bit then drain off the broth into a cup and reserve.

Cut up the cream cheese and heat it with the beef, stiring until it is incorporated.



Add mushrooms and stir.

Drain the noodles into the reserved beef broth.



Using a fork put half the noodles on a plate then spoon over half of the strouganoff. Drink the broth mix with dinner, it is quite good.



Mmmm Mmmmmmmm I will be making this again soon, it was pretty good and very easy to make.

If you are solo you can reserve half and put it in a freezer bag for lunch or dinner the next day.



Clean up was easy, just 2 cups of water and 2 paper towles.

This is simple, quick and satasfying. There is room to add items if you wish but the basics are easy and trail worthy.



If you try it let me know what you think.

I used to carry a lot of camp cooking gear until I woke up to how much space it ate and how much the meal prep, cleaning, etc. put a dent in the riding day. So last year I went minimalist and have been much happier for it:

1 jet boil/coffee
An assortment clif bars

Life is good.

It cost me two and a half bucks a day to eat on the road when I cook and maybe fifteen - twenty bucks a day when I eat out and what I cook is much healthier. My cooking gear weighs about 3 lbs and takes up as much room as 2 1/2 quarts of water, 162 cubic inches.
