    I need to plan lunch for 7 guys this weekend. We will be on Upper Red cooking with a propane grill. I also have a Mr. Heater/cooker. I was thinking something I could just heat and serve. You guys always have great ideas so I thought I would drop the question. Thanks and good luck to all the peeps on the ice this weekend.

    I buy the bear creek soup mix from Menards or fleet farm. Make it the night before and put it in a ziplock or tubberware container then just heat and serve. Soup is the best on the ice IMO.

    You’re already pointed in the right direction with a grill. Anything hot on the ice is special.

    Fillet some fish on the ice and put in tinfoil with butter/seasoned salt. Put on grill for 1/2 hour. Delicious. This is legal I assume? (I hope so as I have been doing it for years…) …RR

    Slab Hunter has a great recipe for Hobo Stew. It was delicious.

    I go with the KISS method.

    Keep

    It

    Simple

    Stupid

    I use my heater/cooker to simply boil snow. I bring along Weiners that I pack up from my deer processing, buns, chips and ketchup/mustard packets. I use a folding handle pan but you might want a pot of the size of your group.

    The soup ideas are good too, espicially pre making it. ( But then you have to bring bowls and spoons too = more stuff) It is key to take as little fishing time as possible while preparing food. I think some individuals get too carried away with bringing tons of stuff. Considering you have 7 guys there is already enough stuff being brought already.

    Good luck.

    X2 although I prefer to have the fish wrapped in foil before I go out. It gives me an excuse to go fishing before the trip.

    Two boxes of no name steaks. Yummy and super easy. And you don’t have to count on catching fish.

    Guy gets back to the fish house late for supper from a trip to the grocery in town and the War Dept. is ready for him. “Thought you were goin ta stop at the deli.” “I did, eventually, Sweetkins, after I stopped to buy somethin fer the house!”
    “whaddya mean, fer the house?”
    “Coupla more rounds!”

    A few times I have cooked Johnsonvilles on the heater and it’s been great. The night before fishing I boiled them in beer with sliced onions, then put the brats and onions in a big ziplock bag. Then, just take that and a bag of buns out and then heat the brats on the heater. Doesn’t take long and since you boiled the brats already, you know they are fully cooked. Easy, and everything fits in a grocery bag to take out on the ice with you.

    I am ALL IN when you talk about grillin’ any meat on the ice.

    Another thing to compliment meat or a late morning pick-me-up: I buy a box of the noodles in a cup. Super light-weight. All you do is peel back the lid, add hot water, let sit a bit and then it’s noodles and hot broth.

    I’ve watched the boys come back with a vengence after hot soup!

    Chili is good on the ice. Bring plastic bowls and spoons, some shredded cheese and Fritos. Throw the bowls and spoons in a garbage bag when you’re done!

    I too like hot food on the ice. Take any canned soup that you like and throw some good natural casing hotdogs in there and everyone will think you are the best cook ever. I also often bring chili nothing like a little spice to keep your core warm.

    Sky is the limit.When our group(8 to 12) hits the ice it is like going to a bar buffet.We take along a small grill(steaks,brats,deer sausage,burgers),deep fryer(fish,chicken wings,turkeys,fries,perogies,fry pans for reheating chili,or soup).If you have 2 or 3 sleighs or if you are driving out you can take just about anything to cook or cook with.Remember to take garbage bags, and when your out there you may as well eat,live,treat yourselves like Kings(at least until you have to go home and back to the real world. Ha Ha)

    that many people, I’d go the sausage route, boil some brats and sausages the night before, boil in beer adding onions and a couple shakes hot pepper flakes to the beer. Drain, and add to a zipper bag. Then get your grill going, open a big can of kraut and put that on the Mr. Heater, leaving the whole grill for the sausage show down. Sausage Saturday is a big day for our crew, we serve 14. If sunny put your buns on the dashboard, the solar powered heat will warm them up.

    If you’re going for easy, you can’t beat brats or the pre-made burgers.

    Personally, I like to eat well where ever I may be. I like to make shrimp gumbo the night before at home and then just bring the pot out to the fish house and heat it up on the stove.

    You can also make anything from chili to spaghetti to hotdish really easily. Just make it at home and freeze it in 1 qt bags. Once you get to the fish house, just boil some water and set the bag in the water for a few minutes. Open the bag, dump it on a plate/bowl and chow down.

    Brats and burgers! Also bring a pot with a few cans of beans, bacon, and a little onion. fry up the bacon so its almost cooked add onion, then beans mix together till warm. Me and Weis had some and wow it took the edge off. ( we forgot an onion though) But then grill up burgers and brats and you have a feast.

    One of the best things I ever did, and I learned this on IDO actually:

    The night before/morning of, cook up a concoction of eggs, potatoes, pepper, onions, bacon, sausage, and cheese and mix/melt it all together. Put it all in a big ziplock boil safe bag. Bring the bag on the ice along with a pot. Melt snow into the pot and boil the water over a Mr. Buddy. When the water is boiling drop the bag into the pot and heat up the contents. After about 5 minutes in the boiling water the breakfast bag is ready to eat! Stick it inside your coat for extra warmth and eat with a fork. It was godly when I did it.
