What is your favorite dish to make for Friday night camp grub at a contest? I am running out of ideas. Looking for something that is fairly easy, tasty, and of course, not covered with BBQ sauce.

Bake a lasagna at home and reheat in the smoker.

Steaks on the grill.

I do a dirty rice mix with lots of chipotles in and a little sweet corn to offset. Also beef, peppers, onions, celery, tomatoes and whatever else I have in spices. Hotter is better and it reheats real well. Add some garlic bread as a side and maybe a toss salad for the cool greens. And of course cold beer.

When lazy I just throw on a pork loin with seasoning and you can inject.

I take a loaf of ciabatta or italian bread and add several meats (salami, proscuitto, etc) a couple kinds of cheese, some banana peppers and a garlic parmesan dressing. Wrap sandwich in foil and bake in pit for around 45 min until hot. Cut into little sandwiches after a rest. Plenty to go around.

Sauced!

Pizza on the smoker. Super easy. Premade crust, a layer of your favorite BBQ sauce, grilled chicken, peppers, onions, pinaples, and a little cheese. Cooks in about 45 minutes. You get the idea.

smoke it if ya got it

I remember a few comments from my soup at Pleasant Hill. And that was from a discriminating soup fan. :biggrin:


Don't laugh, but since I don't eat much and am usually busy cooking solo, I munch on Pringles. I've usually got 1-3 cans of the Extreme flavors around. Like Jeff Spurgeon said, they are just ground up McDonalds french fries in chip form. At $.99 per tube, they can't have anything good for you in them. They taste so good because of the MSG in them.

Oh, I got an invitation this year. I just refused to pay $250 for an INVITATIONAL spot... Just because my rig wouldn't fit into a 25' spot... And they aren't getting a penny from me...

My favorite Friday night meal is the one that someone else cooks! :-D

We normally keep it simple. Burgers, brats, steaks, chops, something that doesn't take a lot of effort.

I feel I'm too much into cooking for 24 people on saturday afternoon, to worry about cooking a party on friday night.

ha ha... did someone say deli meat? heehee

I wondered when the Damn Dip would hit this thread... thought Sully had a brain cramp there for a minute... although it's usually Saturday night ...

my personal fave is chicken wings... any kind.
