_About The Cooks!

Serves: 5



The recipes found in this book represent the efforts and experiences of others and not just the author. A majority of the folks who graciously let me include their camp favorites are (like myself) involved in resource management. As a group, we are not unlike groups of other professionals, in that common bonds are forged not only professionally, but personally as well. Though I can't personally vouch for each individual recipe, I can personally vouch for each of the folks whose recipes you find in my book!

Based on my experience, I think it's safe to say most camp recipes, if researched at all, will result in a story being told either about the cook or the results of his or her cookin'. Most folks have at some time in their life spent at least a little time around a campfire with friends and family.

As our society becomes more urban in nature, I suspect the number of people who've never spent time around a campfire will increase. If you stop and think about it, the more our society seems to "progress", the more folks seem to look back in time.

I'm sure social scientists have published numerous journal articles about why "progress" causes some folks to focus substantial efforts into looking in life's "rear view" mirror! Besides the entertainment value, it's the wish of the author for this book to get folks to pause a little after reading some of the stories, to look in their own rear view mirror of life.

A Back Country Guide to Outdoor Cooking Spiced with Tall Tales

When not working for our printer, Joslyn & Morris, Inc., Bob Stauts spends much of his free time hunting, fishing, and rafting in the desert country of SW Idaho and adjoining areas of Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. He has also become a Dutch oven cooking enthusiast. You only have to read Bob’s recipes to see that Bob likes his grub ‘hot & spicy’! Bob’s recipes typify those of many camp cooks. At the end of a long, hard day the cook creates an awesome meal out of what’s in the grub box and the day’s bag.

Dave, a fellow game warden, is one of the most accomplished cooks I’ve ever met. His name is Irish, but the other side of Dave’s family tree has its roots in the Basque provinces of Spain. Growing up on the family sheep ranch in Idaho’s Wood River Valley influenced Dave to become a camp cook in his own right. When time came for college, Dave paid his way through school by becoming a restaurant cook/chef. Whenever you see a recipe with Dave’s name on it, you can bet you’re at the top of the list.

George Hirsch, a fellow Public TV cook from New York specializing in grill cooking, showed me this recipe when we both appeared at a festival at Itchycoo Park ’99, near Manchester, Tennessee. They are quick to fix and will satisfy the "sweet tooth" of campers anytime.
