It’s time to gear up for the annual Deerslayer Camping Trip. Every year the entire clan (three generations) converges upon southern Wyoming for two weeks. We’ve been doing it for years. In its heyday, there would be sixty-plus people coming and going during the two-week stretch. Now, all the kids are growing up. Many are going away to college. I have a feeling that the group will continue to gather, with the younger ones bringing their own families. My generation will become the one that all the kids roll their eyes at, the group that everybody brings drinks and food to. Sounds like fun! Can’t wait!
I have to admit that, for me, the preparation is part of the fun. I love the list-making, the planning, the menu-planning, and the cooking for the whole group. This year we’ve decided to prepare:
In addition, we decided to try our own version of jalapeno poppers that would include some of our ground wild pork. Sadly, due to my busy camping prep days, my post is coming out after my dear friends, Patrons of the Pit, who beat me to the punch with their own version of a stuffed jalapeno recipe. Theirs is absolute perfection with a glorious glaze of maple syrup. You go, guys!
I used about 18 jalapenos to make 36 delicious, bacon wrapped portions.
1 lb. ground wild pork
4 tsp. LEM sausage seasoning
1/8 cup water
36 strips of cheese (I used a strong cheddar)
18 strips of very thin, inexpensive bacon, cut in half
The peppers were cooked for about 45 minutes on a sheet of foil on the grill over indirect heat.
A nine, tasty morsel for a camping trip!

Wow, Mrs Deerslayer , oh how I do admire your camp cooking. What a menu you’ve got going! And is it that time of the year again. That hallowed time you strike off for the Wyoming wilds. Nice. I’ve camped a fair deal in Wyoming. The wind river range. The Tetons. The Big Horns. And a few other locales. Always a treat to loiter out there. Such beautiful ramparts. Now combine that scenery with jalapeño poppers, well, glory be! Theme good times Mrs Deerslayer. A worthy tradition! I love the planning stages too. It’s part of the trip experience!
We’re really looking forward to it. The temps down here in South Texas, however, leave a little bit to be desired! Unfortunately, it looks like it’s gonna be a little warmish in Wyoming as well. The food will be great, though!
Most interesting recipe. I hope it was not so hot because you removed the seeds. Thanks for sharing!
