In response to the request for cooking help...
There are many possibilities for outdoor cooking. Brownie Stew is probably a
lot like what we call Gypsy Gumbo. There is a lot to be said for "one-pot
meals." The ease of cooking as well as cleaning up is tremendous. But, I
certainly understand that the same old thing gets tiresome after awhile. Here
are a couple of suggestions. You did mention foil dinners. There are also
easy to cook and clean up. The beauty of this type of dinner is that everyone
can make their own. It allows individual tastes to be pleased. They are
really simple to make. I know of two basic kinds (I'm sure there are more).
The one I like involves chicken and stove-top stuffing (or any kind of ready
made stuffing. Take a leg-thigh piece of chicken. Mix the stuffing and spoon
into the bend of the leg. Fold the foil in a "drug-store fold" (bring two
sides together, roll down, then roll sides up). Put on coals for approx. 20-30
min. (more or less). One thing to remember is to put the shiny side of the
foil in because it reflects the heat.
There is also dutch oven cooking or cardboard box oven cooking. E-mail me
privately if you want more info. Just about anything you can think of to cook
at home can be cooked outdoors. Just have fun and keep it as a learning
