Since Dorito is the Troop Guide for the first-year Scouts, he was very conscientious in choosing the menu for Saturday and Sunday's campout. We scoured the Scout Cookbook and online recipes, finally deciding on BBQ chicken and apple cobbler. He even bought all the groceries ahead of time. But when the chore time came, he couldn't get anyone to help do the cooking for 15 people. So he made pancakes, sausage, and hashbrowns for breakfast; hamburgers and homemade fries for lunch (they forgot the watermelon); then BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, and apple cobbler for supper. He ran out of coals before the cobbler was fully cooked -- so they didn't win the Golden Skillet Award for taste, but I think he deserved it for effort alone!
