  •  Most Fantabulous Cobbler Recipe ever: (0+ / 0-)

    1 box bisquick (40 oz)
    1 box sugar (16 oz)
    4 cans fruit (peaches are my favorite)
    1 TSBP cinammon

    mix, add water if necessary until consistency of...well... glop. Pour into foil lined dutch oven. Top with pats of butter, 2 TSBP sugar, 1 TSP Cinammon.

    Place on "fire" comprised of 10 gray briquettes. Close lid tightly, and put 15 gray briquettes on top of lid.  Cook for 45 minutes, turning dutch oven every 15 minutes 90 degrees. Check occassionally.

    Serves 1 Troop.   (or 6 ravenous hikers)

    •  Is that seriously a recipe? (0+ / 0-)

      It sounds okay if I cut in to about a quarter.  But, damn we have a gas grill.

      •  Yup. (0+ / 0-)

        Made it this weekend :)  It's from when I was a girl scout (Back in the dim reaches of antiquity), but seriously, recipe says stuff like "one box for troop."  Doesn't define troop size or box size on the original recipe.   However, the recipe completely fills a large dutch oven, if that gives you any idea on the size.

        The hardest part of any dutch oven cooking is number of charcoal briquettes ratio vs. time.    

        I have made this in the oven (smaller proportions, obviously) in a covered cassrole dish, just by checking it a lot until it was done.

        •  It really sounds wonderful. (0+ / 0-)

          It sounds like the kind of recipe handed down in my family that assumed 10 children per family.  Have to cut those down too.
