What is a hobo dinner?

Hobo meals are just another name for foil pack meals. Some sort of protein (usually chicken or steak) is wrapped up in a piece of foil along with vegetables and seasoning.

The whole pack is cooked right in the oven or over a fire for a meal that has minimal clean up. Perfect for camping!

Cast iron skillet meals are also a good choice for camping classics or anything you can make ahead!
