5 Unforgettable BBQ Recipes for a Great Evening Camping

Grilling around the fire is just one of the many great experiences of a camping trip. Here are 5 delicious BBQ recipes for a great evening while camping.

1. Grilled Steak Kebabs with Your Favorite Veggies

This meal is a classic BBQ recipe and an effective way to use up any leftover veggies. While many people like to use steak for their kebabs, any meat can be used like chicken or sausage.

Mix your meat of choice with your favorite marinade. Leave the mixture overnight inside a fridge.

The marinade can be pre-made at home with Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, some mustard, a little bit of soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Don’t forget the basil, parsley, and pepper.

Fill the skewers with the meat along with your favorite veggies such as mushrooms, peppers, and onion. Grill and enjoy this savory dinner!

2. Grilled Veggies in Tin Foil Packs

Barbecue is often associated with meat, but it does not have to be!

Cut up anything from broccoli to corn and leave them in your favorite marinade for one to two hours. You can also cook them without seasoning, as veggies are filled with natural flavors. Just seal the vegetables in a tin foil package before placing them either over the fire for a smokey taste or in the coals of the fire for a charcoaled taste.

3. Garlic and Butter Herbed Potatoes

Potatoes are packed with great nutrients, are filling, and can be made into many amazing dishes. You don’t need an oven to bake potatoes.

In this simple recipe, combine butter, minced garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper into a tin foil packet along with a cut-up potato. It takes just 30 to 40 minutes for the potatoes to cook while sitting in the coals of the fire.

4. Lemon Butter Fish Foil Packets

One very popular camping activity is fishing. Plus, you can enjoy the fruits of your labor the very same night with these delicious lemon butter fish foil packets.

After deboning and cleaning the fish you caught, place them in a foil packet along with onion, butter, lemon slices, and salt and pepper. Splash a little water or beer to keep the fish moist while cooking. Place the foil packet into hot coals for 15 to 20 minutes.

5. Deluxe Grilled Cheese Campground Sandwiches

This meal is sure to please even the pickiest eaters on your family camping trip because it can be customized to each person’s taste. You start with the ingredients to a simple grilled cheese sandwich – bread, butter, and cheese. Lay out a variety of other toppings that can be added to the sandwich like ham, tomato, onion, and spinach. Each person can add their favorite toppings to their sandwich.

There are several ways to grill the assembled sandwiches. The easiest way is to use a sandwich maker that holds the sandwich inside at the end of a long stick, which is held over the fire. The sandwiches can also be placed in tin foil or directly on the grilling rack. Grill the sandwiches until the cheese is melted, but before the ingredients begin to slide out of the sandwich.
