What's Cooking?

Camp-Kitchen Basics
Camp Kitchen Basics

 

Trail mix and granola bars get old pretty quickly, so if you want to improve the culinary aspects of camping, you'll need to get yourself some camp-kitchen equipment. This broad category includes everything from basic stoves for boiling water to full-on ovens and frying pan sets. If you want any kind of hot food or drink while you're backpacking, you'll need a camp stove at the very least. There is also a wide variety of pots, pans, grills, griddles, and accessories that allow you to cook just about anything you might make at home when you're out in the wilderness.

Stoves:

Ranging from lightweight, self-contained units to large grills and ovens, camp stoves come in many styles and sizes to accommodate everyone from the minimalist backpacker to the car-camping family of four.
