About this product
- DescriptionI originally created this book as a booklet, which I passed out to participants when I taught the B.A.L.O.O class for Cub Scout Parents and Leaders. B.A.L.O.O stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation; which is a course that gives the adult a very brief exposure to a lot of facets of Scout camping. I quickly realized that the Scouts, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, could benefit from the recipes and the ideas of the recipes tremendously. The fact that most teens have t had a great deal of kitchen education and experience is t a secret, r is it a shock when you learn this; but Scout Leaders need to understand that trying and failing, even if it is edible or t, is still training, experience, and education. Every single person who has ever been an active member of the Boy Scouts of America as a youth has eaten a burned pancake, possibly you were the Grubmaster for the campout and thought pancakes were easy to do. You saw your Mom or Dad make them all the time, and it looks easy. So, why t. As you place the finished pancake, looking all golden brown and delicious on the top as you can see, onto the camp plate of your patrol member, you decide to leave the bottom side down; this hides the fact that on the bottom of that breakfast you prepared for your friend, you are serving charcoal in the shape and somewhat smell of a pancake. We have all been there, either the maker or the eater. Sometimes both. Same is true for the first time you use a Dutch Oven, or a Griddle, or a Frying Pan. What about the heat sources; there is the two burner camp stove, backpack stove, charcoal, and a wood fire. Each of them has their own unique quirks that need to t only be experienced, but learned and practiced. Seriously, the hardest thing for someone to teach a new Scout when cooking is a stove, or the fire, or on charcoal for that matter is that there are a lot more levels of heat than OFF and MAX. Cooking over low or medium heat is better and safer for the meal in some respects than cooking on a blast furnace. It saves propane too! Yes, it is slower but it will taste better in the long run. Plan for the extra time, you will be rewarded when you eat. Don't get me wrong, there are times that a blazing hot surface is what is needed; the steak to get that perfect seer for example. But all in all, lower is easier to cook on over the long haul. So pick this up and bring it to your next troop meeting. Let the Scouts look it over and see if there is anything they would like to try out for the first time. You, AND THEY, will be surprised as to how easy and how good some of these recipes really are, especially in the woods!!
- Author BiographyChristopher E. Cancilla, Chris, was born in Cleveland, Ohio, the East Side, in an area known as Collinwood; near East 158th and St. Clair. He worked most of his youth in the family business, DiLillo Brothers Dry Cleaners for his grandfather, and DiLillo Brothers Men's Wear for his uncle. In his youth he also enjoyed Scouting. Spending a great portion of it with the Boy Scouts, it influences his life in a very positive way. The ideals of Scouting - the Oath and Law - served him as he entered the world of the adult, and even today they act as a moral compass, guiding his actions to be the man his family is proud of in all aspects of his life. Spending just over 14 years in the US Air Force, he managed to see a fairly large chunk of this 3rd stone from the Sun, his only regret during his Air Force career was never making it below the equator; so he never got to see the toilet swirl the other way. During his career with the military his favorite assignment was to Colorado, where he was able to camp in the Rocky Mountains, a close second is the 2 years he was assigned to Keflavik, Iceland; a place where he, and his new wife Tammy, became the best of friends. His wife Tammy, and his daughter Allison and son Gregory all live in Georgia. You cannot forget to mention their cat, Snip, who is like his little buddy. Always in the room, but you may or may not see him. When guests arrive, though, Snip is there at the door to greet them. Sitting patiently until the new arrival acknowledges he is there, then he stays in whatever room the most humans are inhabiting. Scouting is still a very large part of his life, especially teaching new adults the skills needed to not just survive outdoors, but to reinforce the way they need to be taught to the leaders of tomorrow. Camping is a great way to decompress and gain insight into what is hidden in the inner recesses of the mind. His day job is as an EDI B2B Integration Specialist, or an EDI Developer. Take your pick, they both mean the same thing. A fancy way to tell someone you work with computers to translate data from one format to another. He calls himself a digital mailman. He moves the data and information files from one place to another, but he does not own or is not responsible for the data in any way. So, a mailman! After all - the mailmen don't write the letters, only moves them from point A to point B.
