I'm a Scout leader and working with the youth planning out meals for this year's camps and outings. I previously bought and enjoyed the Conners' Dutch Oven cookbook. I bought this book as an additional source of recipes. Some of the introductory information is the same in both books. This Large Groups version adds additional information concerning large group cooking and expands to include additional options beyond only using Dutch ovens. I'll include an overview of the contents.The book starts with a good overview briefly touching on fire and camp safety. I enjoyed these sections and found the information useful to review. There's a chapter covering basic skills for a large group Chef, followed by a large group cooking tutorial.The bulk of the book is the recipes. The recipes are organized by meal. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and then Side Dishes, Breads, Snacks and Deserts, and Drinks. Each Recipe includes a handy rating called "Challenge Scale" with most rated easy, a few moderate and some difficult to provide room to grow your cooking skills. I also like that the required equipment is included for each recipe, including which size Dutch Oven to use, other bowls required and even baggies for marinating. The number of coals and how to use them is also included on each recipe.I use the book as a purchasing guide (when buying the ingredients), and in camp as a cooking guide. I'll make a copy of the individual recipe we are making and have it there for the boys to use when preparing and cooking the meal. With the coal counts and directions right there with each recipe it's easier to use than books which show a cooking temperature and require looking up coal counts in tables.
