    Anything you can cook with water like rices & pastas, then fresh veggies and canned proteins. Not only are all these easy to work with, none need to be refrigerated. If you feel you need to have meat or fowl, prepare it ahead of time and freeze it. Keep it frozen until the last minute. Vacuum sealed prepared/frozen meals can be reheated in boiling water and eaten out of the bag with plastic wear leaving you with zero clean up. Get use to eating Sardines. Not only are they a super food they are great mixed with brown rice and veggies like onions, garlic, black beans, they are also good for a quick snack with crackers in the middle of the day. They're especially good with hot sauce. The sardines in water taste like tuna. If that's too much get some salmon in the can. Starkist has some new canned fish. I haven't tried them yet.

    Like B said, Steak. Keep it simple though. A huge steak and a large baked potato. Not only will you be full but if you nuke the potato before you leave, and slice it and some spanish onion into thick slices, you can cook it all in the same pan, with some basic seasonings, and right before it's done, pour a quarter of your beer in the pan and scrape the bottom with a wooden spoon and make a rustic gravy.

    You have to channel your inner Randejo!

    Vacuum seal up the chicken/pork/beef/fish with all marinades, seasoning etc. Freeze/refrigerate according to meal schedule (though with your 55 domestic freezing shouldn't be as big a deal vs. cooler).

    Side can be done similarly and you could sous-video_O that shit camp style:rofl:

    Do you know anyone with chickens? Fresh eggs don't require refrigeration.

    Head down toward Fentress field and there are tons of fresh farm eggs and produce down that way (not too far from you @EatSleepTacos)

    As long as your fridge runs at 40°F or less, you're good for probably a week or more. Those meal bags are fully cooked, you're just reheating.

    That steak and potato does sound good. I need to practice my steak cooking at home. Woe is me, looks like I'm getting some steak soon.

    I do a lot of tortilla based meals because they're a versatile base and they pack flat / low profile.

    Add some eggs, cheese and a little salsa you get a breakfast burrito.

    Add a brat and some baked beans or a little chili, you get a decent dinner.

    Slap some PB&J or whatever the filling of your choice is, get a decent lunch sandwich thing.

    This. Perfect for lunches esp when you still have a good ways to drive and not a lot of time to stop. 2 uncrustables and a small bag of chips and you're on the move in 15 mins.

    I bet you could make something like this. But the price isn't so bad. The size of these are impressive. Some are not this big.

    https://www.amazon.com/Texsport-Hea...words=camp+grill+grate&qid=1598993717&sr=8-18

    This is going to be versatile and the swing away feature keeps you from catching on fire. Or, more control over what your cooking. If things get too hot, move it from over the fire. I actually picked up a cast iron griddle plate like the one shown in the pictures one day in BJ's for like 10 bucks on clearance.

    But this is nice too. And would allow you to rotisserie a whole chicken, fish, ham or roast.

    And remember, any steak can be cooked in a pan and taste delicious over any type of heat source. I pan fry steaks all the time. I marinate them, use a very heavy aluminum pan, and baste them with butter and herbs. That's how the pro's do it in $$$$ restaurants.

    With a seasoned cast iron skillet laying right on the burning wood, or a medium high heat, 5 - 6 minutes per side while you baste with a half a stick of butter and thyme, rosemary, or some cilantro, black pepper, salt, garlic (only add the garlic at the last minute or it will burn and taste like shit), 3 - 4 minutes to rest, leave all that stuff in the pan, throw the onions and potatoes in there and let it get crispy, only turn things once, then make your gravy. Nothin's better.
