    Default Campfire coffee....

    We go up to northern Wisconsin all the time. We stay at my outlaw's cabin. One of my favorite times of the day is starting a fire in the morning when its still brisk out and enjoying a strong black cup of coffee (from the mr. coffee).

    Does anyone make a mean chuck wagon coffee? and can you teach a nitwit how to duplicate it?

    Thank you,
    YankeeQ

    I have a large metal coffee pot just for campfire coffee. I don"t use the perculator stem or basket. Just boil it. I like this kind very strong. Most people won't drink it cause of the grounds that wind up in your cup. If you want to get it hot without boiling, put a green stick in the pot while it's on the fire. I usually fill the pot close to full and start with a half pound of coffe. Everyone has different tastes, but this is how I was taught early in life. At deer camp when asked how I make it I always tell them I put a pound of coffee in the pot, cover with cold water and boil for half an hour. Remove the lid, drop in a horseshoe, and if it sinks..... add more cofee

    Bring water to a boil. Add 2-3 Tbsp coffee per 16 oz boiling water.
    Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat.
    Add some ice water to settle the grounds.
    Drink up!!!
    Works best on a coarse grind coffee. So ya gotta grind your own at the store.

    This is how We make it at cow camp during a round up.
    Fill the pot 3/4 full of clean creek water add 1 cup of grounds some egg shells and a big pinch of salt once it boils remove from the heat and let stand 20 min. If you don't mind a few grounds pour it slow if ur squeamish put your bandanna over the cup and fill 'er up.
    If you like it sweet cut off a chunk of Pillonchillo, if you like it with milk Evaporated milk is good. If you like it white & sweet Condensed Milk rules

    the egg shell take away the bitterness and the salt softens the water.
    Be kind to me, it's not my fault I'm a "PORK-A-HOLIC"!!
