Campout cooking is about providing sustenance, teaching thoughtfulness and cooperation, and being grateful—not to mention healthy eating balanced by a little bit of indulgence.

This collection of recipes and tips from scouts and scout leaders representing nearly every state in the Union celebrates the best in campout cooking. Whether you’re hungering for a Ravenous Scout Leader’s Steak Au Gratin, Fire Starter Cider, Jeepers Creepers Dirt Parfait, or anything in between, you’ll find hundreds of camp-friendly options. Each recipe has been personally tested and approved by the authors and is accompanied by at-a-glance information about cooking method, challenge level, and servings. The Scout’s Outdoor Cookbook has you covered, whether you need an introduction to the basic essentials, instructions on cooking in cast iron or cardboard box oven, or a real cookout challenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT October 3, 2008
I'm a outdoor trainer for Girl Scouts-- this cookbook is excellent for the new to experienced person. All the receipes are tried and true, from the easy level to the advanced. Everything you need to know, how to cook using stick, one pot, dutch oven, cardboard box, paper bag, ingredients, type of fire, even to the number of charcole brickets you need are included. It's easy to read and understand. I highly recommend it to anyone that cooks outdoors. I've done 3 outdoor trainings using it, and every leader there (including people who have never cooked outside), purchased a book. The receipes can also be cooked in your kitchen. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Christine and Tim have done their homework on this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource May 31, 2009
This is a fantastic book for those interested in outdoor cooking. Unlike other vague "outdoor cooking" books ("add meat and season to taste"...duh, I need a book for that?) this book gives you exact ingredients down to the size of the supplies (i.e., 14 fl. oz. can) to make your meal planning EXTREMELY simple. Serving sizes are listed so you can gauge if you need to make more or less based on your group and the recipes are top notch with detailed directions. Not only are recipes classified by type (breakfast, lunch, etc), they're also categorized by skill level (easy to advanced) and have icons for the cookware to use (skillet, dutch oven, etc). There is a section on cookware selection and care as well as tips and tricks to keep your wares in great shape and how NOT to burn the food. I picked this up since my son is more active in scouting now with campouts and since it's been quite some time since I've cooked outside the kitchen or grill, I knew I needed help. This book made me look like a pro! I have even brought my dutch oven to the firehouse and made dinner (Tomahawk Casserole) and then dessert (Chattanooga Cheesecake) for the guys and got rave reviews. One guy even stayed over from his shift to sample to food because "it smelled so darn good". I recommend this book for any Cub/Boy Scout leader, outdoorsman, or backyard camper (there's even a recipe for the world's largest s'mores). Easy to read, easy to follow, and very tasty...even for picky eaters (i.e., my kids)! You won't go wrong with this book. Best money I ever spent on a cookbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book.....Especially For Beginners January 25, 2010
If you search out my reviews you will see that I have written up opinions on more than a dozen outdoor cookbooks. Cooking around an open fire, especially one pot dinners, has been a life long passion of mine. Some of the best meals I will ever come to remember have been created over an open fire on a hike or camping trip in years past. It has been my experience that most campfire cookbooks are all about a writers style. That is, a presumption from the author of just how much true pioneer spirit you posses. Most have pretty much the same recipes, give a teaspoon of this and a dash of something or other of that. The true diversity comes in the writing style. The best books lie somewhere between an author assuming you have never step foot in the savage wilderness with a pot and utensils in hand, and one that assumes we are all descendants of Daniel Boone. The Scouts Cookbook is one that balances both those extremes very well, as well as one I have owned and enjoyed for quite some time. It has always been one of my favorites for it is very elementary in its description, tips, common sense, and above all, possessing a wealth of very clear and in most cases truly delicious recipes of all kinds. Even though I consider myself well past the need to read the basics of campfire cooking 101 included in this book, I still enjoy browsing it anyway on occasion. I just happen to find the authors common sense so easy and entertaining to read and digest that I have come to enjoy it often. The actual recipes in this book are both very easy to follow and diverse. Everything from a wealth of one pot dinners, to campfire pizza and apple squares. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings back memories and gives new ideas April 28, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Scout's Outdoor Cookbook does, indeed bring back memories and gives new ideas! Simple, easy meals are described. Whether carried miles by backpack or prepared in a cast-iron Dutch oven, these culinary delights are practical as well as mouth watering. Also, these recipes kindle the spark of innovation, and create unique dining experiences as we all want and need in the wilds. These wonderful foods are not for the sit at home, or the weight watcher, but for the robust, trail-pounding adventurers burning calories and experiencing adventure

4.0 out of 5 stars book review October 28, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for the dutch oven recipes and I really like that it told me (a novice dutch oven cook) specific steps, including how many coals to use. I've made the basic bread recipe twice and it is fantastic! Made me feel pretty good to be successful with a recipe rated "moderate"!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Sourcebook June 27, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have 45 years experience as a Scouter. during much of that time I have served as cook for leader and youth outdoor training courses.

At one time I had a collection of over a dozen cook books and thick files of recipes appropriate for outdoor and youth cooking.

"The Scout's Outdoor Cookbook" offers some recipes new to me and many good tips for good cooking. It will be my primary reference for future cooking opportunities.
