2After you set up camp, and build your fire, Put the meatloaf into a Dutch oven and securely put the lid on it. Set the Dutch oven over a pile of hot coals (about 12-24). Place the same amount of hot coals on top of the Dutch oven's lid (12 - 24). Cook for about 25 minutes, check and see if it is done, if it is... remove it from the heat... if not... cook a bit longer (be careful not to burn it!)
