Many of our best camping, hiking, and backpacking memories center
around cooking and eating in front of a crackling campfire. Who can
resist the smell of bacon frying and coffee perking outside the
tent, or brook trout grilling over a sandbar fire, or even the
ever-present pot of pinto beans simmering on the back of a stove in
a deer-hunting camp? In "The Field & Stream Wilderness Cooking
Handbook," J. Wayne Fears welcomes you to one of the most enjoyable
parts of the great outdoors -- backcountry cooking. He shows you
the basic cooking skills that can convert any fireplace, wood
stove, or patio into an alternate-energy cooking site. He records
the old ways of cooking that are slowly disappearing, and passes
along recipes that are used by those with less complicated
This useful, informative guide demonstrates that loss of
electrical power or gas does not doom one to unsavory meals. Fears
shows you how to build an open fire and use it for cooking, and
gives you tips on mastering the backpack and sheepherder's stoves.
The fireplace can be used for cooking with aluminum foil, the Dutch
oven, and the reflector oven. Smoking, drying, and charcoal cooking
can be enjoyed at home, at the cabin, or in the wilderness. In "The
Field & Stream Wilderness Cooking Handbook," you'll find
recipes for everything from simple bannock -- the bread of the
wilderness -- to hearty Camphouse Roast Beef. Fears draws from his
own collection of recipes, plus he culls some of the best from all
over: from old-timers who spent a lifetime on horseback in the
mountains, trappers who cannot read or write, home economists who
test in the best kitchens around, and some from backyard chefs who
just love goodfood.
