Another Campfire Meal

More pics from my last camp out. Ribeyes, bacon wrapped corn, potatoes and shrooms. :)

I had to throw in a pic of my favorite little camping chair. :)

I sliced some potatoes almost in half, filled sliced onions and a piece of bacon, then seasoned with salt and pepper and dotted with butter. Wrapped in foil and threw on the grill.

Sipped on a cold beer while the tatoes cooked.

I made the mistake of buying tall cans of beer... there is no way I can drink a tall can of beer before it gets hot! lol Notice the blue mountains on the can.. it's nice and cold in this pic.

I seasoned my corn and wrapped them in bacon..they went on the fire next with a skillet of mushrooms, onions, garlic and butter.

Lastly I grilled the ribeyes...

I was the only one who noticed we were eating meat with two side dishes of meat. When I mentioned it, it didn't seem to be a problem for anyone. :)

Notice the mountains on my beer can now? White.... the beer was hot. lol I just can't drink a tall can fast enough. :)

Sitting by the campfire was my favorite part of the day. :)

The weather is warming up now. I'm ready to go again!

Steak n Eggs on the Hasty Bake

I had the chance to try the new Hasty Bake again... this was my third cook on the unit. I love it so far!

My hens have been getting carried away with their egg laying so I decided to cook a few with some ribeyes for an easy meal.

Talented smoking friend Phrasty, from Jamaica, sent some of his homemade dry rub for me to try out. Thanks again Phrasty! :)

I drizzled some ribeyes with olive oil and sprinkled with Phrasty's Cattle Punch.

I started a skillet of tatoes and onions first.. when they were just tender I threw the seasoned ribeyes onto the Hasty Bake.

After a good sear, I moved the steaks to the side and grilled a few leeks (seasoned with olive oil, kosher salt and cracked black pepper)

I foiled the leeks, then fried a few eggs in butter...basting the tops with hot butter to set.

I added my grilled leeks to my fried potatoes, topped the steak and tatoes with the eggs...

Everything came out great. I loved Phrasty's Cattle Punch on the ribyeys. The Hasty Bake was so easy to use... I love it!

no I didn't eat that whole plate full... but I tried! :)

Venison Backstrap Benedict and Campfire Fajitas

I had a nice time camping this week. The weather was a bit cool at night but the campfire felt nice and the food tasted extra good.:)

The weedburner came in handy for starting the fire...

I cooked some bacon for the hominy and a few onions and peppers for the fajitas..

I marinated a venison backstrap (cut in half) and two flat iron steaks.. threw them on the fire and added onions, garlic, hominy, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to the skillet of the bacon drippings.

heated tortillas...

my venison fajita....

The next morning I fried some sausage patties and heated the slices of the venison backstrap.

toasted some english muffins...topped them with the venison backstrap..

a couple of eggs over easy and then I made a hollandaise sauce to top it off...

The venison backstrap benedict was sooooo tasty. :) One of my favorite breakfasts while out there.

I am ready to go back .. the weekend was extra nice for some reason. Maybe I was just overdue for a campout. :)

Where did the last 4 days go?

I spent the weekend at this little lake, relaxing by the water and enjoying the campfire.
Time flew by...

The moonlight, the water, the campfire.... it was not easy to leave. :)

I'm outta here....

Going fishing! I might even take bait!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. :)

Some big honkin beef ribs....and probably one of my most favoritest Q sauces

Gerald at Three Rivers Bar-B-Que in Lexington South Carolina, so kindly sent a bottle of his sauce for me to try out. He said he wanted my honest opinion.
All I can say is Wow!! This has to be one of the best, if not the best sauce I've tried.
As soon as the bottle arrived I popped open the top and gave it the pinky finger test. :)
This sauce is good.... not just for Q but for many foods.
I can taste a combination of flavors... sweet, spicy, a bit of the vinegar and mustard thing going on. Gerald said it has a kiss of bourbon too. :)

I have been using the sauce as a dip for peel and eat shrimp but finally had the chance to use it on some Q.

I rubbed some big honkin beef ribs with olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Put them in the Memphis Pro at 295F with some hickory..

added 2 scored spams... and brushed the ribs with the sauce.

topped the spam with the usual cayenne brown sugar whiskey..

The beef ribs, bacon fried corn and salad. I did make potatoes but was more interested in the hunka beef. :)

The sauce was excellent! So good!!

I don't think Gerald's sauce is on the market yet but it should be soon. I will definately post when I hear more.

If you're in the area.. Three River's Bar-B-Que has a catering and tailgating business. You might be able to contact Gerald for some of this sauce too. (803) 240-6266 or (803) 939-7217
