We would use all of these methods on a regular basis when I was in the Boy Scouts except for the bean pot, but it sounds like somehting I would like to try. I still use my dutch oven and foils packs while camping, but I dont mess around with the reflector oven any more.

I'm going to the BWCAW this year too. I LOVE my Dutch Ovens but I'm NOT hauling one - even by canoe! Nor am I going to pack out a roll of (used) aluminum foil either. One year, in the BWCAW back-country, we found a wrecked canoe and, using the metal-cutting blade of my What-A-Saw, cut it into an reflector/chimney.

At summer camp as a kid, the one thing we did differently (or in addition) to the Drugstore Wrap was to put the outside leaves from a head of letuce on the top and bottom. Added moisture and helped prevent burning on the outer layers of goodies.

While reading the "Additional Info" box I started to get concerned when I read the words "polenta and chervil". But you redeemed yourself with the second paragraph. ;-)

10 cups of beans! What kid of dutch oven do you have? Do not make the bean hole recipe as directed-this is insane-does anyone field test your directions?

"Tips" - Sending it here can't locate it anywhere else: Please forward

What to do with that old Boot / Shoe Box ?

After I purchase a pair of boots or shoes I recycle the box by taking old issues of Field d and Stream magazines. Cut out the photos, glue them on the box, inside & out as well as the cover. Water seal the box all over after the glue drys.

They make great looking storage boxes. Fishing photos on the end hold fishing items, knives hold knives, etc.

Great place to store those darned sockes you can never locate too... Sock photo glued on the end of the box.

Great project to help keep the grand kids busy and they make great gift for that fishing buddy that can never find his...

Amazes freinds that you can find your " Gotta have It items" as well...Sure beats the desk drawer storage system all to hell.

Happy Hunting

Drugstore wrap is by far the quickest and easiest way to make dinner while hunting. But using a dutch oven is my favourite.

Additional Info

Used to be, a meal in the woods involved a marriage of basic elements: wood and flame, meat and fire-­blackened iron. We’re not saying that today’s campfire gourmands are lesser outdoorsmen than, say, a French voyageur who could make a meal out of a hunk of beaver rump and a little seasoning scraped from a salt lick. But there’s something about the basic application of heat to grub that transcends a backcountry meal dolled up with polenta and chervil.

Here are four ways to use fire to soothe the ravenous ogre that’s set up shop in your belly. Some harken back to days of leather-fringed yore. A few involve ingredients slightly more basic than cream of mushroom soup. But not a one requires that you flash-sauté or prepare a demi-glace or—for the love of jerky—wet-roast a squab. Just fire up the coal bed, brother, and dig in.
