Been out of circulation for awhile. Had some hacking problems. But I hope they are fixed. I see I have a lot to catch up on.

This forum will be gone in the next few weeks.  Come visit with us on our facebook group, packing in on mules and horses.

Hello everyone.  As you may have noticed, this forum is all but dead, as are many other forums.  Facebook groups are the thing now.  I started a Facebook group at the end of August and it already has 2000 members.  Would love to see you all there.  Lots of activity there.   It's called packing in on horses and mules.  Easy to find by searching.

I am in the process of building a new website, and this forum will be deleted.  Any pics or posts or whatever, that you want, you need to copy and save within the next few weeks.

All my how to  vids for packing are on my YouTube channel, "royal tine guide school"

Regards, Cody

Just signed up for the Facebook group (Packin' in on Mules and Horses) and was amazed at the traffic. 
I think FB has put a hurt on forum communities as a whole. 
General Camp Cooks Forum / Cooking and Prepping Salmon Fillets
« Last post by MTTrapper on December 11, 2017, 03:55:35 PM »
I cook a lot of Salmon. A lot. Last summer I cooked Sockeye and Silver Salmon twice a week for 12 weeks straight. I also made Salmon pate and Salmon cakes.

After a few years of experimenting I found the following to please the greatest number of people.

Start out with an aluminum boat. Heavy duty works best or just double up on regular foil. Put it on a 3-sided cookie sheet. You'll just use the cookie sheet to transport that's why the 3-sided.

Remove the skin from the fillet. I use a sharp knife to initially skin it, but then you can carefully just pull on the skin to get it away from the meat.

Remove the pin bones, rib bones (if your fillet technique didn't do it), and any fins you may have missed when filleting. I like these kitchen tweezers because they don't tend to cut or break the pin bones when you pull them out.

Put the fillet on the aluminum boat, brush olive oil, or whatever liquid dressing you use on both sides. (You skin the fillet so you can season both sides.) Season both sides. For this one I did a simple smoked paprika, seasoned pepper and Kosher salt.

Slide the fillet and boat onto the grill. Close the lid. Don't over cook it. Typically at about 350-400 a typical Sockeye fillet will be done in 5-6 minutes. Keep in mind the thickness of the fillet and the temperature will determine whether it's done. On Sockeye, when you see tiny bits of oil coming to the surface it's done.

To remove it from the grill, slide the 3-sided cookie sheet under the foil boat.

On this fillet I drizzled a raspberry chutney on it a minute or two before I pulled it off the grill.

Plate it. Pair it with a side of rice and a nice wine and enjoy.

Found a pretty good charity partnership on an outdoor site that sends packages to those serving overseas for the holidays with each purchase. I know many people who were in the military and I'm sure would have loved to receive something like this:

The covered in manure part rings true. We had a lot of rain and snow in the first several week of the season. It was a quagmire in there, but not as bad -- I am told -- as last year.

The wrangler used his headlamp to get the horses until I turned the generator on at 3:30 a.m. I would look outside the dining tent at 3 and would see a one-eyed monster floating around the corral! The wrangler and guides had plenty of light at 3:30!

Wow. That's got to be the tidiest and most well lit hunting corrals in the world.

The places I've worked used Coleman lanterns and headlamps for light and the group was covered in manure.
