No Name Creek Baked Beans


Often times recipes are born of necessity or thrown together out of what ever the cook can find left in the grub box. So was born this recipe in a camp on "No Name Creek" the fall of 1991.

Right now you’re thinking this "No Name Creek" doesn’t exist and I’m just tryin’ to protect a honey hole for elk hunting. Wrong! Look real close at a map of Chamberlain Basin in Central Idaho, and you’ll find the real "No Name Creek" about a thirty minute horseback ride from Chamberlain Airstrip.

I’d been assigned a two week hitch in Chamberlain as part of an emphasized enforcement effort in the back country. I, along with several others, rode and flew into Chamberlain to relieve guys who’d been in since before the back country elk hunt opened. Don Wright drew the duty of camp cook for the first crew and I drew KP for the second group. Our tours over-lapped a day so Don and I combined our talents for dinner. To this day neither of us remembers the main course that night. Since my grub order wouldn’t arrive till the next day, we made do with what Don had on hand.

Looking in the grub box it appeared our choices for a vegetable included kidney beans, black eyed peas, black beans, navy beans, pinto beans, or pork and beans. With not enough of any one kind to go around we had no choice but to throw them all together. Looking at the ingredient list, you’ll see that lacking a real kitchen sink to throw in, we just cleaned out the grub box.

Since then, I’ve served this recipe to several hundred people, but I don’t think it ever tasted quite as good as that first night. I chalk it up to ambiance. Folks talk about how the proper ambiance will make a good meal great. Only pilgrims wouldn’t classify the smell of wood smoke and dinner music provided by horse bells as ambiance! Anyway...these beans will provide their own ambiance.
