THE SCOUT’S OUTDOOR COOKBOOK

Christine & Tim Conners

In this book of delicious outdoor cooking classics, authors Tim and Christine Conners bring together over three hundred of the favorite recipes of leaders from the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the USA. Sometimes wacky, always practical, this book will help the new camp cookie to develop a thorough foundation of basic skills, while providing the experienced chef with plenty of new recipes and techniques to add additional dimension and enjoyment to their outdoor cooking.

The Scout’s Outdoor Cookbook emphasizes the best food preparation and techniques currently used in scouting. Thoroughly covered are recipes employing time-tested cooking methods using Dutch ovens, pots and pans, grills, and open fire. Many outstanding no-cook dishes are also provided.

Every recipe was thoroughly tested by the authors, and each is presented using clear and reliable instructions that eliminate guesswork and variability. Preparation steps are sequentially numbered for smooth workflow and for objectively delegating tasks. Equipment lists are provided to ensure that the cook isn’t caught short in the field. The use of challenge levels and icons allow the reader to quickly identify recipes ideal to their unique situation.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all thoroughly covered. And what would scouting be without snacks and desserts? Our large collection will keep your group’s sweet tooth satisfied for years! A wide assortment of bread and drink recipes round out the list. Award winners, historical favorites, and many surprises are sure to please you and your scouts.

Scout cooking produces a lot of food, making the scalable recipes in this cookbook a perfect companion for those challenged with feeding any large group outdoors. If you’ve been tasked with organizing trail maintenance activities, outdoor club events, base camp operations, festivals, fund-raisers, or even backyard parties, you’ll find plenty of options for pleasing the palettes of large crowds.

So indulge your group in camp-tested favorites such as: Flying Pigs in Sleeping Bags, Buckeye Biscuits and Gravy, Scoutcraft Meatloaf, Worm Burgers, Johnny Appleseed Pork Chops, Black Swamp Pasta, Oooey Gooey Extwa Toowy Bwownies, Black Bart’s Salmagundi, Chicken and Varmints, Teenage Sugar Addict Orange Rolls, Barracuda Stroganoff, Jeepers Creepers Dirt Parfait, the World’s Largest S’mores, and hundreds more!

Over coals and campfires, in any locale and in all kinds of weather, scouts gather together to create something special through a shared meal outdoors. With this book, we’re confident you’ll do the same.

About the Authors

Christine and Tim Conners are the authors of Lipsmackin’ Backpackin’ and Lipsmackin’ Vegetarian Backpackin’, two of the most popular trail cooking books of the past decade.

Christine is a former Girl Scout from her home state of Hawaii. Tim was a Cub Scout during his youth in Ohio, and as an adult, served as Den Leader and Assistant Cubmaster in Georgia’s Coastal Empire Council. At the invitation of the Boy Scouts of America, the Conners recently served as judges for Scouting magazine’s prestigious national camp food cooking contest, a watershed moment that ultimately led to the creation of this book.

Tim and Christine have been testing outdoor foods practically nonstop for over ten years. They are grateful that their four children are wonderfully accustomed to, and generally entertained by, the enormous range of outdoor culinary eccentricities that their parents have brought into the kitchen from the backyard! The Conners family lives in Georgia, where a Dutch oven can often be found warming over coals in the fire pit.

GREAT I’m a outdoor trainer for Girl Scouts– this cookbook is excellent for the new to experienced person. All the receipes are tried and true, from the easy level to the advanced. Everything you need to know, how to cook using stick, one pot, dutch oven, cardboard box, paper bag, ingredients, type of fire, even to the number of charcole brickets you need are included. It’s easy to read and understand. I highly recommend it to anyone that cooks outdoors. I’ve done 3 outdoor trainings using it,…

Excellent resource This is a fantastic book for those interested in outdoor cooking. Unlike other vague “outdoor cooking” books (“add meat and season to taste”…duh, I need a book for that?) this book gives you exact ingredients down to the size of the supplies (i.e., 14 fl. oz. can) to make your meal planning EXTREMELY simple. Serving sizes are listed so you can gauge if you need to make more or less based on your group and the recipes are top notch with detailed directions. Not only are recipes classified by…

Great Book…..Especially For Beginners If you search out my reviews you will see that I have written up opinions on more than a dozen outdoor cookbooks. Cooking around an open fire, especially one pot dinners, has been a life long passion of mine. Some of the best meals I will ever come to remember have been created over an open fire on a hike or camping trip in years past. It has been my experience that most campfire cookbooks are all about a writers style. That is, a presumption from the author of just how much true pioneer…
