My "big dinner".
get 2 large throw away aluminum pans and stack together(added thickness for strength).

Place in the pan one pork loin, well seasoned. Add halved red or golden potatoes (you don't need to peel these) a few onions and many many baby carrots around the loin.

Here is the hard find... raspberry jalepeno preserves!!! pour it over the top. If you can't find it, get hot pepper jelly and mix with raspberry preserves.

Add a bit of water to the pan, tightly seal with 2 layers of aluminum foil and place directly on hot coals. Walk away for at least 1.5 hours.

While that is cooking, wrap a large onion in foil and place off the side of the coals to roast..

remove the pan from the heat and check the meat. If it is done(142F on thermometer) remove it and let it rest, it will finish cooking on its own, tightly wrap it in foil.

If the carrots are not done, place back on the coals and allow the mixture to boil..
Once the carrots are done, remove the veggies from the drippings, open the roasted onion, dice and add to the liquid. Add milk and start heating the pan. Mix up some cold milk with cornstarch to make some thickening and add to the pan. boil until lightly thickened.

Braised Loin in Raspberry Jalapeno with potatoes, carrots and roasted onion gravy all in a throw away pan.. no mess no fuss.
