  1. I have made different hobo-style campfire meals while camping before, but I have been wanting to make this one ever since I saw the Cracker Barrel commercial for their "Campfire Meals" on tv.
    I don't have any Cracker Barrel resteraunts in my vicinity, so I planned on trying this one the next time I went camping, which I did this past Labor Day weekend.
    I have to say that my first try was a huge fail, only because the bottom burnt to a crisp so it made everything else taste burnt which ruined the entire meal.
    This recipe is for an oven and I was using an actual camp fire, so I basically had to guess how long to leave it on for? I did Google it but I got too many different results, so I did 10 minute increments until it looked done, but I didn't notice the bottom was charcoal until we started eating it, gross!
    I decided to try to make it again, (despite my family's objections lol). I used an extra layer of tin foil to protect it from burning the bottom again and I put it on a hot rock instead of directly on the fire and it came out delicious the second time! I'm not sure if it's as good as the resteraunt version, but we all loved it, and it will be made with a few of my own tweaks from now on every time I go camping :)
