Have you been on a hot dog hike/ something like it?

hillys hillys
My family loves hot dog hikes and I like them too. Go for a hike stop for lunch at a stream . cook a dog or smores. Except I'm sick of hot dogs and i wanna find something else I can cook on a stick on the fire. My cousins vegetarian girl friend put peppers in tin foil any other ideas?

My husband and I do this three or four nights per week in the summertime. We do trade off with polish style sausages, ham strips, steak strips and of course the marshmallows!!

I was going to recommend something shish-kabob-ish. Meat and veggies on a (water-soaked) skewer. You would probably need to take one of those baskets meant for grilling fish and other things with delicate flesh just so it doesn't fall apart in the fire or be hard to handle.

I have never heard of this. It does sound good though. I will have to try it this summer.

I'd never heard of this, but couldn't you buy one of those cast iron things to make a grilled cheese over a fire?

So all you do is, hike and when you get hungry just cook hot dogs?

Well no. You plan a day hike or so and at the end location before you go back you make a fire and cook your lunch on it. So you plan it out so you get to your location at about lunch. And since your hiking I don't think you could bring a cast iron thing with you unless really wanted to carry that much just for a day hike. But my family packs hot dogs marsh mellows, condiments, and beer and we have these nice streams we stop at for lunch basically. If that helps clarify at all. but I guess you would have to be hungry.

We haven't done a "hot dog hike" before but it sounds like a fun idea, we'll have to do that sometime this summer.

Hmm. I love a culinary challenge. I've taken cold hot dogs on hikes when we used to camp and were tired of sandwiches for lunch. But, the places we usually used to hike don't allow fires. (Especially this summer with the drought.)

Anyway, if you are in a safe place for a fire, or using a fire ring etc you could marinate strips of round steak or sandwich steak the night before. I'd mix up Worcestershire Sauce, or soy sauce, some wine, some herbs, garlic and maybe some balsamic vinegar and a small amount of sugar or honey in it and soak the strips of steak in it over night. Then in the morning, pat the meat dry, thread it on thick skewers, wrap them in foil and unwrap and cook when you get to your destination! Some cold sticky rice or sushi rice, prepared ahead of time would be fantastic with this.

If you want to get really creative, mix some cashew butter into the marinade (or, EW peanut butter, if you can eat that. I'm allergic to it. We use cashew butter) and you have Beef Satay!

Now, I want this for dinner. I make this a lot and cook it under the broiler.

Corn on the cob, or pretty much any veggie, in foil could work. You could also just bring easy camp foods that don't need cooking like fresh fruit or pasta cups.
