Camping Cooking Supplies And Choosing Them Right

By John Splanch

Oh camping, the smell of fresh dew on the ground, no buildings blocking your incredible view of mother nature. This can be shared with yourself, a couple friends, or a large group or family. It is a great activity that can be shared with people young and old. But some say the best part about camping is the food, and who can blame them? Yes, camping and cooking outdoors is a whole new ball game than the one that you play in your home. It is a different set of everything, rules, equipment and likewise. But some example supplies used for camping are Dutch ovens, cast iron skillets, griddles, portable stoves, aluminum foil, tin cans, and even cardboard boxes!

Those supplies can include a ton of things, literally a ton! When you are trying to figure out the supplies you might need for cooking outdoors you have to think about a couple of things. And in my humble opinion the first question that I always ask myself or my group, is how much do we want to carry? If you can answer that correctly you will choose the correct supplies that are needed and you won’t be miserable!

To be cooking at camp there obviously needs to be fire of some sort. Good thing there is a few options with cooking outdoors. You have the campfire, a classic, charcoal, and white gas or propane. Obviously there are advantages and disadvantages to both. But the good part is that this is mainly selected when you choose your cooking equipment. You don’t want to use your Dutch oven over a propane stove do you? I mean, you can, there is no law against it but it defeats the purpose when you do something like that.

Something else to consider when you are looking for your camping cooking supplies is how do you pack the product. You’ll pay close attention to this if you are in the backpacking group. Almost all the companies have poured tons of money into making you happy, and how do you get happy? Making the item almost perfect that you can carry around that is lightweight but durable. I personally use a cookset that all the pots and pans can all fit inside each other and only weighs about two and a half pounds.

Camping cooking supplies can also include the utensils that you use to make that famous chili of yours. Like a wooden spoon that will last forever if you take care of it. Which you should, because I’m using one that has lasted twenty three years so far.

Bowls and Sporks that is what I use when I am camping. Actually only one of each, but you get the idea. I use one of those new squishy bowls to eat with, I can stuff it into the smallest nooks and crannies and don’t need to worry about a thing. A spork is an amazing invention, a spoon on one side of the handle and a fork on the other. AMAZING!

And how can you forget about the past time of the century when relating to camping? Roasting marshmallows and making smores! Just get several marshmallow roasting sticks and a few Hershey Candy bars and get to work. You will have a great time talking about the old days and sharing stories with your group of friends.

The final decision on your camping cooking supplies is ultimately up to you. The responsibility that comes with this is sometimes astronomical; because you can be really irritable the whole camping trip and no one will like you. But try to pick the right things and be welcomed in loving arms to the World of Camping.
