Stoked Campfire Green Beans & Bacon

Some foods are just MEANT to be together … bread and butter … peanut butter and jelly … mashed potatoes and gravy. Once you try green beans and bacon together, you’ll think of them as an inseparable pairing, too.

Green beans are such a great car camping food to begin with. You can pick up fresh green beans at the grocery store or farmers market on the way to the campground or cabin. And bacon? Who goes camping WITHOUT bacon? And both benefit from some added smoke, so stoking them in Kelly Craig Gourmet Smoked Wraps is a natural, simple and easy preparation.

  • Bacon (one thick cut slice per serving)
Instructions
  1. Rinse green beans and snip or break the stem end off each bean.
  2. Fry bacon in a skillet until cooked about half way to crisp. Reserve bacon fat.
  3. Select Gourmet Smoked Wraps (any will work well with this recipe.)
  4. Soak cotton twines in water.
  5. Spray both sides of a Gourmet Smoked Wrap generously with water (or beer.)
  6. Lay one serving of beans onto wrap parallel to the grain of the wood.
  7. Lay one strip of bacon on top of beans.
  8. Roll the wrap around beans and bacon and tie with a saturated twine.
  9. Keep outside of wraps damp by spraying with water occasionally.
  10. Heat grill to 450 degrees and cook for about 8-10 minutes, or cook in Dutch oven with a little water in the bottom heated to same temperature for about 8-10 minutes. You could also wrap each wrap in an aluminum foil packet and cook individually in campfire coals for about 15 minutes moving and turning frequently.

  12. Delicious!
