    QueenJellyBean's Note:

    This is a summer favorite. I grew up having grandparents made them and then my parents made them. My whole family loves these! You could make them in the oven but for some reason they just don't taste as good as they do on the barbecue! You don't want real lean hamburger as the dish needs some "juices" but you don't want it too greasy either. I usually use the 12-15% fat. If you go with less fat your meat patty and veggies will seem dry. If you don't like any of the ingredients like onions or celery...cook it all together and then pick those parts out. It is important to the taste for it to all cook together.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Tear off four good sized pieces of aluminum foil to make pouches for the "stew".
    2. 2
      In the center of each piece of foil, place a 1/4 pound patty of hamburger. We generally try to have the patty about 3/4 inch thick.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle meat with seasoning salt and pepper to your tastes.
    4. 4
      Layer on top of the meat, potatoes, then celery and then carrot.
    5. 5
      Fold up foil to make a sealed packet. You want it to be "tight" as you don't want all the yummy juices to run out when you turn them on the barbecue.
    6. 6
      Place the four packets on a heated to about medium barbecue.
    7. 7
      Cook 15 minutes on the first side and then turn over and cook 10-20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Check by opening a packet and making sure the potatoes feel done.
    9. 9
      When the meat and pototoes are done, remove to a plate and let sit for five minutes meat side down to let the juices run back into the meat.
    10. 10
      Dump out onto a plate to serve.
    11. 11
      Sometimes I season the meat like meatloaf before I make the patties and sometimes I serve it with A-1 sauce and or ketchup. The vegetable and the meat compliment each other with their juices. You can add extra potatoes or make the patties bigger -- you are limited only by your imagination!
