Many of our best camping, hiking, and backpacking memories center around cooking and eating in front of a crackling campfire. Who can resist the smell of bacon frying and coffee perking outside the tent, or brook trout grilling over a sandbar fire, or even the ever-present pot of pinto beans simmering on the back of a stove in a deer-hunting camp? In "The Field & Stream Wilderness Cooking Handbook," J. Wayne Fears welcomes you to one of the most enjoyable parts of the great outdoors -- backcountry cooking. He shows you the basic cooking skills that can convert any fireplace, wood stove, or patio into an alternate-energy cooking site. He records the old ways of cooking that are slowly disappearing, and passes along recipes that are used by those with less complicated lifestyles.This useful, informative guide demonstrates that loss of electrical power or gas does not doom one to unsavory meals. Fears shows you how to build an open fire and use it for cooking, and gives you tips on mastering the backpack and sheepherder's stoves. The fireplace can be used for cooking with aluminum foil, the Dutch oven, and the reflector oven. Smoking, drying, and charcoal cooking can be enjoyed at home, at the cabin, or in the wilderness. In "The Field & Stream Wilderness Cooking Handbook," you'll find recipes for everything from simple bannock -- the bread of the wilderness -- to hearty Camphouse Roast Beef. Fears draws from his own collection of recipes, plus he culls some of the best from all over: from old-timers who spent a lifetime on horseback in the mountains, trappers who cannot read or write, home economists who test in the best kitchens around, and some from backyard chefs who just love more
