Throw a Stick of Sage into the Firepit/Bonfire. The sage scented smoke that the fire will emit keeps mosquitos and other annoying bugs at bay for the entire area. Usually the sage stick is enough, no need for bug sprays.
Campfire Potatoes: The onion, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce combine to make a super side dish for any grilled meat. Plus, cooking in foil makes clean-up a breeze. The foil packets can also be baked on a cookie sheet at 350 for 45 min. to 1 hr.
