Having the right camping cooking supplies makes it easy to cook great camping meals.
There is something magical about cooking and eating outdoors.
Food tastes so good and choosing from the large selection of camp cooking equipment makes it fun to prepare and cook.
Cooking In A Dutch Oven
When at camp, using a cast iron dutch oven is the preferred method of cooking for many people. They can be used for every type of food - roasts, fish, stews, chicken, bread, desserts and much more. Camp Dutch oven cooking is very easy and once food is put in the oven, work is done. You are free to enjoy the campfire while the food cooks.
Dutch oven campfire cooking can be done with a Dutch oven tripod set over the fire, the oven set on a camp fire grate or on a bed of coals.
A Dutch oven cooking table is very useful - it gets your Dutch oven off the ground and at a good height so you don’t have to bend over to check the food. These tables are fireproof and they are a good place for the chimney charcoal starter. When the briquettes are ready, they can be dumped out right on the table.
For me, Dutch oven lid lifters are a necessity - they prevent ashes from falling in the food when lifting the lid.
Camping Cook Stoves Save The Day
Camping cook stoves are one of the most important of your camping cooking supplies to have when you are on a camping trip. The aroma of food cooking and the smell of wood smoke is a tantalizing combination. But if it's raining and the wood is wet, having a camping cook stove under a canopy is a darn good alternative.
Setting up a camping cooking stove is fast and easy, plus you can create fantastic camping meals with them. They come in many varieties, shapes and sizes.
If you are hiking or backpacking, you probably want to consider a lightweight camping stove, but if you are setting up a camping kitchen at a campsite, you can go with a larger camp stove. If you really want to shine, there is a combination stove and oven. You might also want to consider a stove and grill combo.
Cooking On The Campfire
Meals around the campfire are the highlight of many camping trips. Whether you are roasting hot dogs or grilling steaks, everything tastes better cooked over a campfire.
Cast iron campfire cookware can’t be beat when it comes to cooking on a campfire. They are heavy, durable and when properly seasoned, food won’t stick. Cast iron is important for camping cooking supplies.
When using a campfire for cooking, you will need a campfire tripod, a campfire cooking grate or an adjustable campfire grill. Of course, you can always use foil or a hot dog roaster for cooking on the coals.
Some other useful campfire cooking tools are:
Charcoal Grill Cooking
For many people, charcoal grill cooking is the only way to go. Charcoal burns hot and it gives a good smoky flavor. Some put in wood shavings with the charcoal for even more flavor.
A charcoal chimney starter is a good solution for how to light charcoal.
You will find different types of charcoal grills, but they all work basically the same - Some of the different types are:
Camping Coffee Is The Best
A hot steaming cup of coffee early in the morning when the birds are starting to sing and the world is starting to wake up - what could be better? And the really good news is that you don’t have to settle for instant coffee just because you are camping and don’t have the coffee maker from home.
A camping coffee maker or a camping coffee pot will fix you up as good as if you were at home. And if you are a coffee connoisseur, you will find a camping espresso maker, a stainless steel coffee press and even a coffee press mug.
