“Making a packet out of foil, filling it with yummy things, sealing it up, and plopping it on the grill”.

5 Tips to Making Perfect Foil Packet Recipes for RVers

  • Wrapping: Double wrap and double fold the edges of the foil without crunching it to give space for the food to cook, expand and room the steam.  This prevents the packet from breaking while on the grill.
  • Size of the Food: Make sure the vegetables and meat are chopped into thin bite-size pieces.
  • Meat On the Bottom: Always keep the meat in the center of the foil beneath all the other food items, as this helps to cook the meat efficiently.
  • Vegetables with Water content: Whenever you use meat in your foil pack meal, toss a water-containing vegetable like a tomato or a cucumber to provide moisture for  the meat.
  • Cooking Spray: Always coat your foil with cooking spray.
