Hi,

thoughts / ideas / menu plans for common dinner at the club meetings ? Specially, for when we might meet as a group away from a show. It might be nice to consolidate campfire + common dinner if we can.

Anyone have ideas on what we might be able to prep/cook for such meals ? And how we might get organised for it.

regards,

From Lincomb experience group cooking does not work that well. There are always some who would rather self cater and there are those with food allergies or simply different food preferences.

As Ian says Kb.

Would be be nice to do a hog or lamb like stu showed open an open fire. Properly like you have just caught the thing. Hopefully there wouldn't be people who would be offended by that though.

i am one of the guys that enjoys the cooking and sorting myself out. Wouldn't want a group thing every time. Jmo

I'm sure a tenner each to the local butcher could sort that out they rarely get the chance to show off their skills . Veggies can have whats in the stomach grilled with a pinch of salt :icon-smile:

I can get a complete lamb that is £120 but would feed around 50 people or 3 trevors....

I don't mind cooking it if we all chip in. Someone else can worry about what we are having with it....

If there is an assistant I would do it.
Jackets roast veg, easy to do stuff.

Beer sort of goes without saying really. Do we have any non drinkers in the club?

Tom does some killer quadruple cooked chips as well!

In terms of actual meet meals. I was really only considering doing one, maybe a Saturday evening meal, as a social thing. And everyone can self cater the rest of the weekend.

The amount of effort needed to do a series of common meals would in itself turn into a mission - and likely not really be worthwhile.

Let me try and comeup with some veggie and carb options to fo with the meat. Happy to help with those.

Regards

Btw one campsite dish that worka really well for me has been a baked beef curry.

Literally 5kg of large chunks brisket, 2.5kg of tomatoes, 2.5kg of onions ( the asian kinds not the sweet ones) bit of water, a few spices to taste, bit of salt. In a dutch oven, completely covered in coals. Needs fairly high heat.

Cooks in 40 to 45 min, goes really well with rice.

I pay 100 for a lamb but I have one when the guy has them killed. Only once a year and that was a few months ago. He only has a few lambs done per year. Sometimes have half lamb off another guy at 60

I sell them for £45 / half. That's butchered but all in one bag for you do sort out yourself. Fancy packaging cost money. Also a wide variation in lamb weights. Lowland sheep are big buggers.
