Camp Cooking: Chorizo Burgers and more

Mountain House Biscuits & Gravy

Mountain House Biscuits & Gravy

My wife keeps the camper at a private club during the summer.  I visit the camper when I can but I rarely ever camp there.  This will be my third video at the camper (2017 & 2018).  I guess it has become an annual tradition.

In this video I cook Chorizo Burgers, Franks & Beans, and Mountain House Biscuits & Gravy.  I also sample a new beer and spend some time enjoying the rainy weather.  It was a short but relaxing trip. 

I made the chorizo burgers once before at Ferne Clyffe with my brother (click here for the video).  The problem we had then was the burgers seemed dry.  To remedy that I added a jalapeno spread.  I still had a problem with the burgers falling apart; I may add an additional egg or more bread crumbs next time.  Also, when I make the spread again I plan on adding beer like I do with my Beer Cheese Spread.
