Get some stew (cubed) meat- beef or venison; you could even use pork or chicken, even high-quality cuts of meat if you feel like cubing it yourself.
Get some vegetables. I always use Celery, Onion, Carrots and Potatoes.
Wrap vegetables and meat in a sheet of foil, leaving the top open for the time being.
I always salt and pepper mine beforehand, but it isn't necessary.
Drop in some butter. I usually put in a couple tablespoons full.
Roll the top edges of the foil together to seal the packet. You could also double-wrap it in foil if you wanted, but this makes it a little difficult to check the progress if the opening sections aren't lined up.
Put 'em on the grill. It usually takes about a half-hour or a little more to cook them, and no side dishes are needed. Everything cooks in the packet, flavors mingle and it comes out delicious.

Ground beef, potatos, onions, celery and/or carrots. Wrapped in foil and put them on the coals.

First, I hollowed out a yellow onion:
Packed one half with ground beef:
Put the other half on top:
Wrapped it in foil (shiny side in is supposed to make it slightly hotter--who knows?):
Cooked on open coals for 20 minutes to a half an hour:
Then unwrapped it and ate it. Unfortunately, I was hungry and wolfed the thing down before I thought to take a picture of the delicious finished product. The vegetarians cooked eggs in their onions, which seemed to turn out all right.
But here's a picture of a nifty foil-and-stick frying pan that worked quite well:
We also made meatloaf on a stick by packing a paste made of ground beef, a crushed slice of bread, an egg, and salt and pepper on the end of a green stick, wrapping with foil, and setting it over the fire with a forked stick as a fulcrum, weighted at the base. It had to cook a little longer than the items in the coals--about 45 minutes. The meatloaf was very moist and tasty, but unfortunately it was a demonstration model, and there was only a little to go around.
