A good use for old oven parts...Are you getting a new stove, or know of somone that is save those oven racks and top grates, they sure do come in handy for a campfire. or camping adventures.
Below is one way we use our old racks often:
Campfire corn and old oven racks..
Have you ever cooked ears of corn on the grill or campfire ?? The taste is so different ,than the usual way
of boiling corn, The campfire adds flavor, you can eat it with or without butter....
(1) Soak ears "Unhusked" of corn in cold water for several hours "or" overnight .
* We soak ours in a large cooler *( 2)We start our campfire till we get a good bunch of hot coals going,with very low flame
(3) set the rack as close to the coals as possible.(4) one by one pull out ears of corn out of the water and let drip a little to get off excess water, set wet unhusked ears of corn on rack ,turn corn over and rotate ears around with a long set of tongs
you will start to see the outside husks start to dry and brown a little ,(use that as a guide when turning)
that is a good indication that corn is done when all sides look like that.
* The cooking time will vary depending how hot your fire is, cooking time can vary as much as 20 minutes to a hour*
It is fun cooking things over a campfire, but it does take a little practice...but can be a rewarding family fun event.
