    Default Roasting a turkey in camp

    Having been involved with many many boy scout camping trips over many years our boys got tired of the same old same old meals in camp so I challenged them to get creative. They had the bright idea of having a thanksgiving dinner at a fall campout so we fashioned a oven to cook the turkey and potatoes. The other trimming were cooked on conventional camp stoves but here is how we cooked the turkey.

    4 tubes made from chicken wire supported by tall metal stakes. Fill with charcoal. Position a tripod in the midst of the coal tubes. Wrap with foil to contain the heat.











    Next time we will wrap the wing tips and the ends of the drumsticks in foil to keep them from getting charred.

    Its temp that matters more than time. You can see a probe in the turkey. I recall the time being the same as if it were in a home oven.
