    I was wondering what people like to eat when they're having a cookout and maybe I'll get some new ideas. Personally I think nothing beats classic smores but I'm open to suggestions! :D

    Despite the massive cliché that marhsmellows on a stick are, they never seem to turn out right for me? Either burned, melted like plastic and tastes like burnt plastic too :dodgy:

    Smores are great, I also like to do put some jacket potatoes in foil into the fire and that will cook them, after the cool a bit you can eat them with your hands and it's a pretty easy snack.

    Like what many people would say smores, however I also like roasted hotdogs or weenies around a camp fire.

    I always manage to burn one end of the hot dog while the other one remains raw... :dodgy:

    My most favorite camp fire snack just has to be burgers (lol).

    I usually pack loads of them, and while my folks are eating marshmallows (which are also delicious)
    I keep stuffing myself with big juicy burgers! :)

    OMG YES! Camp fire burgers are delicious, but how do you usually cook them?

    Do you have a portable gas grill or do you bring along a grill to place over your fire?

    Smores are okay, but I can't have more than one. I prefer to just eat the chocolate :)

    Haha, not a fan of the marshmallows and cookies? The trick is to have everything melted without burning it.

    I prefer things that can be roasted to the sweetness of smores. I love taking chunks of pepperoni or hard salami and roasting them over a campfire, or making biscuits on a stick. Smores are good but they're just too much. I'd rather have that juicy salty flavor.

    I've never roasted pepperoni, this sounds like something my boys would LOVE!!!!

    I love vension sausages over an open fire, but I will settle for trout stuffed with mushrooms. Also rabbit haunchs buried under the fire.

    My new favorite food over a campfire is carne asada, essentially grilled meat. However, the fire gives it a great flavor. The meat can be cut up and made into little tacos. The best way I have eaten then meat was with Doritos chips. The snack-size bag of Doritos was cut in half, a spoonful of meat was scooped on top. Then we added typical taco toppings like cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, etc. It was inventive and delicious!

    I have also had smore's with a peanut butter cup in place of the Hershey's chocolate. That was also delicious.

    Alot of people say this, but I love hot dogs and smores. I know it sounds kind of cliche, but yes. Another thing would be freshly hunted meat or fish cooking over a campfire with a little bit of seasoning.

    Smores, Hotdogs, and ice cold beer! Nothing beats that! So unhealthy, but I only camp once in a while so I let myself indulge a little. Also clean up isn't too hard when you're done eating either :)

    I usually don't go camping, but when we first did, we brought made smores. I had to use sticks to light the fire.

    We call these walking tacos, and we also make them with fritos.

    Sweet potatoes are also good cooked in foil. I'm a fan of Korean dramas and I saw a couple on a drama that was camping in the mountains and they roasted some sweet potatoes in foil and ate them with their hands. I decided to try it, although American sweet potatoes are different from Asian ones. It was really good. It's hard to mess up sweet potatoes, they're a very forgiving vegetable. In the past, I've forgotten I was baking one and left it in the oven a little too long, the inside still tasted great.

    I tend to just bury them under the fire and let them roast. This frees up space for roasting trouts, vension, those vension sausages I brought along, shiskabobs.... Yeah.
