Nothing beats cooking over your campfire, but it pays off to be well prepared. You don't want to overpack or be missing key ingredients or equipment. Take the time to plan ahead, create those lists and relax during your camping trip. Here are some tips:
Be sure that you know how to start and control your fire and have plenty of fuel. Propane, Butane, Charcoal or wood?
We recommend every camp cook should have a 10 inch cast iron skillet with a lid. This durable equipment is very versatile and easy to take care of.
You also need a set of long tongs, a spatula and sharp knives - must have tools.
Aluminum foil - the heavy duty kind - is essential to campfire cooking.
Keep your campsite clean and make sure no food is left out for the wildlife to find.
Meal Plan - If you plan out your meals, it is so much easier to shop and prepare.
Be sure to bring what you need to clean your equipment, dish soap, water, wash basin, cloths, scrubbies, towels, etc.
How will your eat your meals - on paper or real plates? There are benefits to either, I personally prefer to wash dishes than to create more garbage.
What about leftovers? You might not have any, but if you do, how will you store then? We find that plastic baggies do the trick and don't take up too much space.
Do you have any tips that you'd add? We'd love to hear from you!!
