    It always seems that a bunch of fresh veggies with chopped garlic wrapped in foil, sprinkled with pepper and drizzled with olive oil find there way on the fire or grill.

    And I think I can find a use for them when they come off the grill.

    I like the idea of the grilled veggies. One of our long standing recipes is to slice zuchini and yellow summer squash, onions and green peppers, spiced to taste, with a dash or 2 of oil, wrap in plastic and grill.

    Might add a new taste... But don't believe the plastic falls into the healthy part. [:D]

    Went to my parents house a few years ago and my dad cooked a whole piece of peameal bacon in the oven. He didn't realize it was wrapped in two pieces of plastic wrap, not just one. After an hour in the oven it was still so moist from being wrapped up. But I don't have the nerve to try cooking like that because it would probably melt on me.

    I put sliced potatoes in foil, drizzled with olive oil and Mrs Dash garlic seasoning. Goes great with any grilled meat.

    Been thinking that method for making fajita burritos on my next trip. Always use a cast iron skillet but might like to try this method. All this food talk has me headed to the kitchen. Has to be something in there to munch on.......

    We use to do the foil cooking when we were driving on the top of the engine. Cook some hamburger with onions, drive for about 2-3 hours, It's really good. Veggies sounds like it would be good too.

    We don't cook with aluminum much any more. Mostly cast iron and stainless. But it is handy for camping and we don't do it that much.

    Here in Utah, we call this kind of cooking "Hobo Dinners". Any other names?

    I just received a cookbook titled "Hobo Cooking" from a friend as a Christmas present. I can't wait until spring to try some of the recipes.

    I really don't like to cook too much in Aluminum , you're not actually grilling at that point , just steaming .
    I like my veggies directly on the grill , YUM
