Enjoy the harvest

There is nothing better than a bowl of beans after a long day of hunting. The only thing that might make it better is if there was some smoked sausage in it. Here is an easy campfire recipe for your next deer camp or just a camping trip. It is easy enough you can just leave it to simmer while enjoying other fun things around camp. I even dig a hole and fill it with coals and place the dutch oven in the hole then place more hot coals on top. Then bury it with dirt. This will cook all day and be ready when you get back to camp. Here is the recipe for Pinto Beans and Sausage.
