Baking while backpacking - novice needs help
Our scout troop goes on a monthly campout and it is my turn to be in charge of the adult dinner.
As responsible grown-ups our primary goal, of course, is to always make the scouts envious of what we are eating so I am thinking of trying calzones.
My plan is use a cardboard box to make an oven by lining it with tin foil and then cook over wood coals from our fire. I will bake the calzones on a big pizza pan that is raised 8 or so inches off the coals and then cover with the box.
I will make the calzones on Friday night with whatever pizza dough recipe I find and then stuff them and leave them in the fridge until we leave Sat morning. The the calzones will be sitting in my backpack all day without any refrigeraion, but I do not think that should be an issue since I am guessing that the temp will be in the mid to low 30s during the day.
In theory, all of this should work out fine. I am wondering if anyone can think of any special considerations that I might have with outdoor baking on a wood fire at around 30 degrees F or so.
Any feedback, thoughts, hints would be appreciated!
