    Roasted Butterflied Garlic Chicken
     
    There is nothing more tasty and economical than a whole chicken but it can pose some challenges when cooking on the BBQ. There is a way to make this family favourite cook evenly on the BBQ and work well for your camping trip. First, you can make several in advance in your favourite marinades and second, lay them flat and stack them conveniently in the fridge or freezer. Beer can chicken just can't compare.
     
    Butterflying a chicken so that it lays flat on the BBQ and the meat cooks consistently are much easier than you think. Grab a good pair of kitchen scissors or a sharp knife. Place the chicken breast side down on a cutting board or plate so that the back is facing you. Cut along both sides of the backbone severing through the ribs and remove the backbone completely. It's good for soup or stock. Once removed, turn the chicken over and crack the breastbone with a knife until the chicken lays flat. There are helpful videos on Utube if this is your first time.
     
    Now it's ready for marinating and freezing in a large Ziplock bag. Here is a flavorful marinade that will make a little work in advance worth the while on your trip. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator before freezing.
     
    1 whole chicken (try for around 3-4 lbs)
    4 tbsp sesame oil
    4 tbsp soy sauce
    1/4 cup rice vinegar
    1/4 vegetable oil
    3 tsp of Chinese Five star powder
    12 crush garlic cloves or 3 tbsp of garlic paste
    2 tbsp salt
    1/4 cup of cilantro (coriander) paste
    1 tsp dried red chili flakes, paste, or one finely chopped fresh red chili with seeds
    1 to 2 lime for garnish
     
    This recipe will marinate one chicken. Cook on the BBQ or in the oven at 350 in a roasting pan about an hour until cooked.

    Looking for something to load up with your daily craving for rich creamy butter and wild berry preserve? Bannock is a simple quick bread that is traditionally cooked over a fire. There are many mouthwatering recipes, from sweet to savoury, available on the internet and most cultures have a version of this easy recipe. The great thing about this recipe is that it works because the brick improves cooking consistency and browning. We can attest to it and credit this recipe to the Atco Blue Flame Kitchen. Put that BBQ to work!
     
    BARBECUED BANNOCK BISCUITS

    These sweet biscuits are baked in a cast iron frypan on a brick on the barbecue. Using a brick when baking on the barbecue increases the distance of the pan from the heat source, which helps prevent over browning.
     
    ​3 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    4 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 cup salted butter, chilled and cubed
    1 1/2 cups buttermilk
    3 tbsp maple syrup, divided
    1 brick
    1 tbsp whipping cream
    1 tbsp canola oil
    ​1. Combine flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a bowl.
    2. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.
    3. Whisk together buttermilk and 2 tbsp maple syrup until blended.
    4. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir just until combined.
    5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough gently and shape into a log. Cut log into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and set aside.
    6. Place brick on natural gas barbecue grid. Set a 10 inch cast iron frypan directly on top of brick. Heat frypan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
    7. Meanwhile, whisk together remaining 1 tbsp maple syrup and cream; set aside.
    8. Using a heatproof brush, brush oil in frypan.
    9. Carefully place dough balls in frypan. Brush tops with cream mixture. With lid down, bake biscuits, rotating frypan after 15 minutes, until lightly browned, about 30 - 35 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 12.
     
    Yum. May the food be with you!

    Great food and camping go together. We all have memorable camping trips where even a hot dog just tasted that much better in the great outdoors. Sometimes, longer camping trips and smaller fridges mean that we can't always carry the fresh meats and produce that we love to cook on the BBQ. It's convenient to have a few canned goods in the RV pantry or camping containers. No one wants to spend all their time preparing food, so cooking and cleaning need to be simple. Here's a little gem that won't fool the discerning carnivore in your group but it will surprise you with big taste and an easy clean-up. All you need is a bowl, a large spoon and a frying pan.
     
    Black Bean Burgers
     
    Ingredients:
    2 cans (14.5oz each) seasoned black beans
    1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I use whole wheat Panko)
    1/4 cup grated white onion
    1 whole egg
    1 Tbsp masala (red curry or chilli powder, I use Mother In Laws Tongue for some nice heat)
    1/2 tsp garlic (powdered)
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 Tbsp hot sauce (I use Franks Red Hot)
    Olive oil for frying
     
    Drain, but do not rinse, the black beans. Place them in a bowl and use a fork to mash them. Keep mashing until they're mostly broken up, but still have some whole beans visible. Add the breadcrumbs, onion, egg, chilli powder, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Stir until everything is combined, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
     
    To cook, heat a tablespoon or two of olive oil with an equal amount of butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Form the bean mixture into patties slightly larger than the buns you're using (the patties will not shrink when they cook.) Place the patties in the skillet and cook them about 5 minutes on the first side. Flip them to the other side, place 2 slices of cheese on each patty, and continue cooking them for another 5 minutes, or until the burgers are heated through. (Place a lid on the skillet to help the cheese melt if needed.)
     
    Grill the buns with a little butter until golden. Spread the buns with mayonnaise, top with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and sliced pickle and pop on the lids!
     
    Yum. May the food be with you!

    On August 15, 2015, Liz and I would have celebrated our 14th year owning Castlegar Cabins, RV Park and Campground. But on August 14th we turned ownership of the park over to a very nice couple from Alberta by the names of Wylie and Kim Orser.
    Please support them as you did us for the past 14 years. We now look forward to retiring from this venture and start spending more time on our web business at Bearcave Web Services.

    This beautiful Park Model came available today. Why stay in a noisy motel or hotel when you can have the equivalent of a suite for $95/ night and still be only 5 min to town? GST at 5% only!
