  • How do you transition cooking on the grill to campfire or oven?
  • When cooking on the grill or campfire, the methods are very similar. I like to use indirect heat as to not scorch the bottom of the vegetables. Place foil packet over a side of the grill without the flame. When using a campfire, push hot grills to the side near the coal that are on fire, to use as a heat source and cook foil packets in the hot coals. Or, if a grill is over the fire, try to move foil packets out of the direct flame.
  • Oven – set the temperature for 375 degrees


  • Serving Size: 4
