Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Now including a new and improved index! "A unique cookbook for all campers." Library Journal "Some of [the recipes] are a little wacky, but that's half the fun! The recipes are about good food." The News and Observer (Raleigh, NC) "You will love these great outdoor cooking recipes, and so will any other camping fan.... Plenty of recipes for every outdoor cooking situation. "—USAFundraising.com Reviews for Lipsmackin' Backpackin': "Dutch oven, campfire, camp stove and box oven recipes are just some of the many that can be found in this cookbook." Scouting Life "Authors and avid hikers Christine and Tim Conners have collected and compiled recipes and tips from Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Scouting leaders all across the country representing the best in campout cooking for troops large and small. Each tasty recipe is accompanied by easy-to-read information about cooking method, basic essentials, and instructions. Everyone can enjoy healthy eating balanced by a little bit of indulgence . . ." Scouting magazine
Library Journal

Containing many of the 300 recipes from Scouting magazine's national cooking contest, this is a unique cookbook for all campers. The Connerses (Lipsmackin' Backpackin') have arranged the recipes by the three major meals plus breads, snacks and desserts, and drinks. Each recipe has a "challenge level," required equipment, and preparation at home and at camp. Many of the recipes use a 12" or 14" Dutch oven, which may not be appropriate for backpacking. Other methods of cooking are also used-foil, frying pan, plank grilling, and cooking in cardboard. Hot dogs, spam, and box cake mix are popular ingredients, and the results are not for the weight conscious. A description or anecdote precedes the recipes, which conclude with the contributor's name and scout affiliation. The index is arranged only by the name of the recipe, so if you're looking for one of the numerous chili recipes it is necessary to do some browsing. Recommended for public and school libraries that have active scouts or campers as patrons.

    I like the fact that you have variety of recipes using different ways or preparing a meal. I can use the Dutch Oven recipes for out upcoming Dutch Oven cookout and I can use the backpacking recipes when we go to the Boundary Waters. I also like their coal chart to help you determine the number or coals you need for your size of Dutch Oven to control the temperature.

    Great Idea for a Book!

    My girl scout troop always has the same thing, stew made of chicken broth and various vegetables, when we go camping and spicing our menu up a bit is a huge improvement.
