You are right about the foil Jim. You shouldn't find too much more though. I reckon I have got most of it by now.

GoldstalkerGPX, If I didn't rely on my job to pay for going camping on weekends / holidays etc, I would say where and I will meet you there. An hour or so is all it would take to be ready for a week or several out bush cheers

TO ROAST BEEF.

Roast beef is not baked beef. It is beef that is roasted before the fire, and the flavour is quite different from that of baked meat. In the bush most kitchens have a
large open fireplace, sometimes only a camp oven, but the fireplace is generally fitted up with a large open colonial oven. You can roast beef splendidly before one of these large open fireplaces with wood as fuel. A twisted piece of worsted suspended from the mantelpiece, and a hook, will answer the purpose of a " Jack," as the meat must turn round slowly, so that all sides are cooked alike. Have a tin-lined packing case standing before the joint to keep the cool air away and to concentrate the heat ; place a large deep pan underneath, to catch the fat and gravy ; baste the joint continually. Allow a quarter of an hour to each pound. To make the gravy, raise the dripping-pan carefully, pour off all the fat, shake a little brown flour in the pan, place over the fire for a few seconds, then add salt, pepper, and a cup of water ; place over the fire, stir well until a nice light brown colour. Place the joint in a big well-dish, pour the gravy over it through a strainer, decorate with scraped horseradish, and send to the table hot. Horseradish Sauce to Serve with Roast Beef. If horseradish does not grow in your garden, the scraped bottled horseradish is to be bought at most stores. Take two tablespoonfuls of grated horseradish, mix with one teaspoonful of salt, one of mustard, four table spoons full of cream ; gradually drop into this, stirring all the time, one tablespoonful of strong vinegar (white looks best). If this sauce is to be eaten with hot meat, it must be warmed, but do not heat it in a saucepan. Place the sauce in a jug, and the jug in a saucepan of water, which you can gradually bring to nearly boiling point, stirring the sauce now and then. Serve the sauce in a small sauce boat with a ladle.

Bush Tucker.
Roast Chicken & vegies

1. Two large aluminium trays.

2. Dig a hole and light fire to get good supply of hot, glowing coals. ****Caution**** Cover hole, or extinguish fire when finished so no one steps into it in the dark, because coals will remain hot for over 24 hours.

3. Place chicken in foil tray, pour oil (preferably “olive”) over chicken. Peel a whole onion and cut in half and place either side of chicken… Insert a clove of garlic inside chicken.. (Not essential)

4. Cover tray with several layers of alfoil.

5. Place tray on bare ground, shovel ash around tray up too the foil cover height.. Now shovel hot glowing coals onto the tray ensuring the lid is completely covered. Check the time!!!!

6. Prepare vegies, place in plastic bag and dust with cornflour. Place in second tray with olive oil and cover with foil.

7. Open tin of peas/ beans or what ever ready for heating.

8. Mix up a packet of Chicken gravy and water and place on side of cooking fire grate to simmer.

9. When the chicken has been cooking for one hour, place veg tray next to it... Once again repeat step 5.

10. Note the time and now heat the greens and prepare the gravy.

11. 40 minutes after recovering with coals remove chicken and vegies.
12. Total cooking time 1 hour 40 minutes for a family size chicken.

Enjoy, it is delicious.

cooking in the bush for hungry and weary prospectors.

Howdy all,
long time ago when we were on a family camping trip and funds were short the chops we had left the day before pay day were a little tired. They werent off but they werent far off it. In sheer desperation I cooked them in some orange and lemon cordial( the mix up kind) and served with vegies. . I made a sauce and cooked them in it in a deep pan. The kids not only loved them they even lived to tell the tale :0
