It's the time of year when we're all thinking about summer holidays and getting into some fresh air. One of the great pleasures of the camping experience is cooking and eating outdoors. There is something so unique and different about cooking over an open fire. It makes the food taste different and it lends itself to certain types of food.
So, if you're thinking about a camping trip for spring/summer 2018, make sure you've thought of all the things to make the cooking experience the best it can be. Here are three top tips for successful campfire cooking.
1. Freshness comes first
When you go on a road trip to a campsite, often your food is going with you so you need to make sure it's fresh. Make sure that you have a good quality and reliable cooler so that your food won't go off if the temperature starts to soar. Think about how and where you will be using the cooler, for example, if you may need to carry it to beaches or picnic areas, opt for something lightweight.
2. Wakey, wakey
When you're away on a camping trip you won't want to miss your morning brew! Whether you're a tea or coffee drinker, there are lots of gadgets to make sure that you can still have the perfect brew, even over an open fire. If you love real coffee, consider a portable coffee grinder to make sure you don't compromise on taste or quality. Portable coffee mugs are also good for soups to take out on a day trip.
3. Brill grills
Make sure that you have the right grill for whatever you are planning to cook and wherever you are planning to go. Portable grills vary in size and use so check out all the options. Some stoves will fold away if storage is an issue and others offer elevation over an open fire. Don't forget to take portable pans as well, perfect for one-pot wonders such as stews and casseroles.
4. Keep it handy
Finally, make sure you have all the gas supplies you could need such as gas bottles, kindling or charcoal on hand for successful camping and cooking!
