Throwing a “drugstore wrap” in the campfire is a rugged mountain man move.


  • 10 oz venison backstrap (or beef) cut into 2-inch cubes;
  • 1 medium onion, quartered
  • 1 diced potato
  • 1 small can pineapple, drained, cut into chunks
  • 1 tbsp pineapple juice
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • cumin, coriander, ginge


  1. Tear off a piece of heavy-duty foil three times the size of your pile of food. Place it shiny side up on a flat surface. Put food in the center. Bring up two opposite sides to form a tent, and roll seam over tightly three times. Press tightly along the fold to seal the seam. Seal the other two ends with three tight folds. Add a second layer of foil, with looser folds to protect the inner layer from punctures and keep it clean so it may be used as a plate once opened.
  2. Cook directly on coals about 25 minutes.
