Here's a cool recipe I ran across that would be good for camping:
1) Dig a hole large enough to hold a bed of hot coals & completely submerge turkey.
2) Start charcoal in the hole, & allow to become white hot.
3) While coals heat, rinse turkey, pat dry, & rub with butter. Sprinkle with seasoning as desired (salt, pepper, sage, rosemary, thyme....).
4) Wrap 6 - 8 hot coals in aluminum foil. Place these coals in the large cavity of the turkey.
5) Wrap buttered & seasoned turkey in at least 4 layers of foil (I like the non-stick kind).
6) Place wrapped turkey in the hole, on hot coals. For faster cooking time, cover entire turkey & hole with more foil, a metal garbage can, or metal barrel (Make sure these are clean & have not been used with flamable contents!).
Loosely cover with dirt to make an "oven". Turkey (15 - 20 lbs.) should be done in no more than 2 - 2 1/2 hours. Check internal temperature to be sure. Leaving turkey on the coals longer will not result in dry meat as it would in your indoor oven, and basting is not necessary.
Sides Dishes: Corn on the Cob and Baked Potatoes
Soak corn in water in the husks for several hours (a 5-gallon bucket works well for this), then place each ear, with husks intact, on the coals of the fire until done (about 10 minutes) -- silk & outer husks will char, but corn will be hot & delicious. Peel husks back to form a "handle", roll on a stick of butter, salt, pepper, & enjoy!
Potatoes are easy -- wrap in foil, & cook on the hot coals just as you would in your
oven. Takes about 30 mins.
For dessert, try baked apples. Core apples. Fill with cinnamon, sugar, raisins, and a dab of butter. Wrap in foil, & "bake" on hot coals 15 - 30 mins. A delicious end to a delicious meal outdoors with no pots or pans to wash!
