4 oz. ground beef

1/2c. peas

1 onion, diced

1 medium potato, sliced

1 large carrot, sliced

Dash of salt and pepper


Shape 4 oz. of ground beef into a patty. Cut a medium potato and a carrot into thin strips. Peel and slice a small onion.

Arrange all the ingredients on a square of heavy-duty foil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Close the foil doing the Drugstore Wrap and lay the package on the grill. Cook for about 7 to 8 minutes, then turn it over and let it cook for another 7 to 8 minutes.




1 apple

1/2c. raisins

1 tsp. butter

1 tsp. brown sugar

Dash of cinnamon


Cut the core out of an apple and fill the hole with butter. Add raisins, cinnamon, and a teaspoon of brown sugar.

Wrap in foil using the Handle Wrap style. Bake in the coals for 30 minutes.



Drugstore Wrap

Place food in center of foil and fold the sides up; fold and crimp the top several times, and fold and crimp the open edges to finish. Leave room for expanding gases as the food cooks.

Handle Wrap

Place food in center of a double piece of foil; crimp and fold into a shape with a built-in handle. Leave room for expanding gases as the food cooks.
