Hi All, I am taking the family camping for Thanksgiving in our (new to us) 25RSS. Just curious what others do for Thankksgiving dinners while camping. The oven looks too small to cook a Turkey and I'm not real crazy about dragging along a deep fryer. Any suggestions?

We take our Big Easy with us all season long. Works great for grilling or roasting.

Simple.

Cook the turkey at home, then cut it up and stick it in the fridge or icebox to be warmed on T-day.

We have bought just the turkey breast and cooked it in a Dutch oven!! Just the right size with not too many leftovers to find a place for.

Here is a few web sights I have used for such events maybe you can find something here. They have lots of good ideas for camp out cooking.

Also you can look for slow cooker recipes.

Some of these sights have Dutch Oven cooking also so I just hope you enjoy looking at them and find some information you can use.

Happy Camping

We have gone camping the last 2 years for Thanksgiving with our favorite camping buddies. We have had hook ups and take our electric turkey roaster and cooked the turkey outside! Smells the campground up real nicely!
Wish we were going this year!
have fun!

Well, we ended up buying a Char-Broil big easy Oil-Less turkey fryer. I put it together and seasoned it last weekend. We'll be trying it out next week at camp in Santa Cruz. Thanks for all the advice. Can't wait to get to the beach!

I have smoked my turkey in my gas grill before. Put a pan under the turkey with some water in it and a smoker pack (wood chips that have been soaked in water and then wrapped in aluminum foil with holes poked in it). Worked great and tasted better.

That sounds interesting, any links on how it's done? I imagine the tinfoil is used to help with the roasting?

We've cooked turkey breast in a crockpot. We do a lot of crockpot cooking while we camp so we are always searching for ideas.

We camp at the beach and this will be our first in the 5th wheel. All others have been in a pop up. We always took a Honey Backed ham and a turkey breast. Last year the racoons got the the leftover ham. Wife was pretty pissed about it.
This year I want to fry a turkey but the boss wants to do the ham and breast. Guess who will win.
