The Cook
Added: Wednesday, May 6, 2009


1. The menu is the cook's choice, though he will take into consideration allergies, religious, and cultural preferences before setting the final menu.

2. Never ask the cook, "When are we going to eat?". This annoys the cook. Plus, the later the meal is served, the better it tastes.

3. Patrols should cook and eat as a patrol.

4. New Scouts are expected to learn to cook for themselves and their patrol.

5. Complain about the food and you will be the cook at the next campout.

6. The cook should always double check that he has enough supplies and all equipment needed before every campout. It is no one else's fault if this is not checked before leaving for the campout.

7. If you cook, other scouts must help to clean up. Put on a large pot of water to boil right before everyone begins eating.

8. Each individual is responsible for cleaning his own personal mess kit. It must be cleaned after each use.

9. If the cook needs to leave the stove while cooking, he must always turn the stove off or find an agreeable substitute cook. Never leave a lit stove unattended.

10. Don't mess with the cook!

Finally, remember to say grace before each meal.

It's true that a Scout is Hungry, but each patrol member should follow these rules for the best outcome from the kitchen (and the campout!).
