Some say that a meal cooked outdoors is twice as tasty as the same one cooked indoors. We don’t know if it is entirely true, but there is some magic to open-air cooking. Maybe our senses become sharper when we get out of our concrete boxes, or maybe fresh air is actually the tastiest seasoning out there. Whether the saying is true or not, outdoor cooking is definitely an activity worth trying.
Whether you are inviting neighbors over for a barbeque, having a picnic on the outskirts of the city, or trying to cook a rabbit in the middle of the dense forest - all of these activities can be called outdoor cooking. Quite often such a method includes an open fire and thus calls for more attention, skill, and security measures.
First thing first, you need to decide how you are going to cook. One thing is having an outdoor cooking station in your backyard, another is setting a campfire to cook in the woods. If you are on a camping trip, be sure to check local fire-usage restrictions beforehand. Violating the law is the last thing you want to do during your leisure time. If fire pits are restricted, you will need to take a camp stove. Or forget about the warm meal under the starry sky. The choice is yours.
Camping takes a lot of energy and food is your second best way to restore it (the first one being sleep). You won’t have access to huge amounts of fresh ingredients, so more often than not it’s about what you manage to bring from home. You would also need to consider weight, as food is not the only thing you are going to carry. Dried meats and vegetables contain less water and thus are easier to carry. But nothing can compare to a stake freshly grilled in the middle of the woods.
Getting a camp stove is a great alternative to ordering pizza to the nearest stump. They are portable and safe, and you don’t need to worry that the wind might get in the way of your dinner. Different camping stoves have a different number of burners. The more you have, the more you’ll cook.
Cooking systems specialize in boiling water, another thing that might add more comfort to your trip. Enjoying a cup of warming tea or coffee is a cozy bit of home that you can always carry with you once a cooking system is at your disposal.
Camping mug are not meant for drinking only. They can also be used as small boiling pots, heating containers, or common containers for survival items. Besides, it’s more pleasant to drink water from a mug than from palms, and you will definitely want to drink something during your trip.
