I was skeptical about a cookbook written by two comedians whose stand-up comedy routine centers around ultimate camping. But while it's true that the stories in the book are hilarious, the recipes themselves are for real and nothing like the pork and beans with hot dogs many campers resort to. It's like gourmet cooking for the camper whether grilling or using a dutch oven. My husband and son are the campers in our family so I had hubby read the book too and give me his honest opinion about the recipes. He thought they sounded good but would probably stick with heating food from cans or grilling meat that didn't require much preparation. The recipes are more suitable for a chuck wagon type set-up for a larger group of people, which is basically what the authors do - they host camping trips and cook for the participants. For those who are simply going to enjoy nature, fishing, hiking, etc., and who don't want to spend their time preparing fancier meals, this book is more entertainment than practical. That said, I did find recipes I will use for our everyday meals at home so as a cookbook, this is a good one with recipes such as mexican lasagne, cheese stuffed meatballs, s'mores pies, and various pasta dishes. It is also a fun book that any camping enthusiast would enjoy reading, but I wonder how many would go to the trouble to prepare these kinds of meals at camp because of the planning, equipment, and cooking know-how required. Another option would be prepare some of the recipes ahead of time and simply reheat them at camp. I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinon of it is my own and was not solicited nor required.
Bought this book and have made over half the recipies in it. Alot of dutch oven recipes.
