Please take pictures for the "Camp Cook" ... example included

I enjoy reading this section as I love to cook, especially with my Dutch ovens. I like trying new things but I would also enjoy these posts more if we would all post pictures of what we're making. It seems like a bit of a pain but it only takes an extra minute or so and then everyone can see what you're cookin' up. We all enjoy seeing other member's rifles and handguns so why not food?

Here is the easiest dang meal I can possibly think of to fix ... it is just Chipotle Chicken made in the oven. Now I can tell you about it in words, but food also needs to be pleasing to the eye ... unless of course you're "bear hungry."


All I do is wash the chicken off real good in the sink and trim all fat off (and the skin for my wife's pieces.) I place the chicken in the baking dish and cover with Chipotle BBQ sauce that you can find at Walmart. I cover it with foil and bake (with potatos around the dish) in the oven at about 325 degrees for about 1.5 hours (depending on the oven.) I then remove the foil to let the chicken brown up to my liking. This is usually 20-25 minutes and when it's to my flavor, everything is removed and served. Sometimes, I'll add some seasoned salt before I add the sauce.


Like I said, this is soooo easy and everyone that visits for a weekend or longer seems to really enjoy it. You can see some of the pieces are skinless (to my wife's liking) and I usually brown it more than this but was getting bear hungry on this day. We serve with rice too. I'll make this in one of my Dutch ovens before too long.

Re: Please take pictures for the "Camp Cook" ... example included

Here's last weekends supper as proudly provided by my three kids.



If ya can't tell what it is... here's a hint.



The littlest on the left is my boy Jacob, next to him is Emmett and the girl with the black hair is Lindsey. The other people I don't know and were just there. The MO conservation dept was putting on a "froggin' clinic" and I signed up the kids. They had a blast. Lindsey got 8 (that's the limit), Emmett got 6 and Jacob didn't get any but Lindsey gave him two of hers so he could carry them around. He still had fun, he was just a little afraid to go out in the reeds and water in the dark. He'll get over that in time like the others did. They really got into it and were wading nearly chest deep in the dark but it worked. Of the other dozen or so people who were there only two frogs were caught. Guess it's paid to raise the kids to not be afraid of getting wet or dirty in the woods eh?

Did I mention they were FRESH? I got home and there were three walmart bags in the sink "moving"


Shortly after that, MOST of the movement had stopped. But not all. Funny thing was, if you sprinkle a little salt on frog legs, they start to twitch.


Some were pretty nice sized.


I'd have liked to use a little buttermilk but didn't have any so I used a half cup of regular milk and a well beaten egg with a good splash of hot sauce to soak 'em a little while. The other plate has corn meal, onion powder, garlic powder cajun spice and salt.


We also did up some channel cat caught about two days prior out of Clinton lake in KS. Cut into nuggets and soaked/breaded right along with the frog legs. These frog legs were the smallest of the batch. I didn't get a picture of the big ones done because the kids were practically taking them off the serving plate on the way to the table. They were GOOOOOD!

Great post Dave. Your post reminds me of days gone by giggin' in farm pond to farm pond all night long. We'd go home when the sun come up, clean our mess of frog legs up, take a power nap, pop open some cold ones and start frying.

Thanks for sharing ...

Dave B. and other MO's,

Here's a tip that I use frequently. If you don't have any buttermilk in the house, add about 1 TBS. of lemon juice or white vinegar for every cup of milk that you use. It works great! It also works in old fashioned cake recipes that used buttermilk from years ago.
