I do these all the time on the BBQ and on the fire.
One of my most successful foil meal was a hamburger patty, a cut up hotdog,
instant rice, corn and peas wrapped in several layers of foil (alternate the
shiny side). I cooked it for about 3/4 of an hour on a BBQ at a group BBQ.
Worked out great.
Depending on whether or not I use meat in it, I usually start with some
ground beef in the middle and surround with any of the following: potato
pieces (can also be the frozen mostly cooked kind), carrot pieces, onion
pieces, rice, corn, peas, a bit of salt and pepper, onion salt, oil,
occasionally a few ice slivers. Other people I know of put in things like
garlic and green peppers.
I have also mixed ground chicken with chopped up or ground items from the
above list, but found it to be too rich (read sweet, easy to get sick of
quickly) if there is a large proportion of the chicken.
As for my "worst meal" contribution, when I was a Venturer about 13 years
ago, I thought that it would be a great idea from a preparation point of
view to make five "burgers in iron" meals -- all identical -- for myself for
a weekend winter camp. It was really easy as I didn't have to think about
what I would have for each meal and preparation was production line.
Friday night: Wow! This is great! Delicious!
Saturday morning: Ho hum, this is fine and tasty.
Before Saturday lunch: I do not want to each lunch.
Needless to say it was hard to feed myself dinner that evening and breakfast
the following morning. Funny that I did have an army k-ration that I'd
decided to keep for Sunday lunch for the sake of convenience -- in fact, the
change Saturday night would have been welcome and the burgers in iron would
have been more convenient for lunch on Sunday.
