With great camping kitchen supplies you can be the star cook. You can easily prepare great tasting foods cooked over open coals or on top of a fire grate.
You can build your fire, set up your equipment and cook! You don't need anything extra to use it.
The campfire is a great way to cook your meals.
A well equipped camp kitchen makes all your work easier.
No clean up, no bulky, heavy grills, no charcoal, no gas bottles.
Just wood that you would normally use for a campfire anyway.
The first thing to have is a cast iron skillet.
These are very durable and easy to maintain. With a paper towel simply wipe it out and you can use it over and over again.
You aren't supposed to wash these with soap and water because that will ruin the finish, or "seasoning" of the pan.
You can put this skillet right on the fire and cook away.
It will not hurt it at all.
Be sure to use fire-proof oven mitts or fire-proof pot holders.
Watch that grease!
Once this skillet gets hot, and it will quickly, food will start to cook immediately.
With varied sizes and depth, you can cook just about anything you want in one.
It will become one of your new best campfire cooking supplies.
Take note, update your shopping list now, because ...
This is the best egg, bacon, sausage, fish fryer, grilled cheese, omelet and potato cooker there is!
When you get through cooking in it, just wipe it out with a paper towel and it's ready to use again.
It will build up an amazing coating in the bottom that is beyond cooking technology!
The outside will look crusty, but that's ok. That's how it's supposed to look.
If you are using a cast iron skillet for the first time, you need to "season" the pan.
Put you some oil in the bottom and coat the insides of the skillet and just put the whole thing in the fire for about 20 minutes.
Wipe it out and you are ready to use it. It has now been seasoned for use! If you haven't made cornbread in one, you gotta do it.
You may have seen your mother or grandmother use one of these. They have been around for years and are still one of the best skillets I've ever used.
Keep in mind they are heavy because they are made of cast iron. That is also what keeps them so durable and long lasting - just the thing for a camping kitchen.
There are so many different camping kitchen utensils to use.
Be sure to get heavy duty cookware as the fire will get it very hot.
You want it to last for a while, too.
You can find cast iron stew pots, too.
Using cast iron is the best for open fire. It holds heat and cooks evenly.
You can cook just about anything you want in it. Experiment with your favorite recipes and see what you can create even while camping.
You will have everyone at the campground wanting to come by and see what you are cooking. Good smelling campfire cooking always draws people, especially the most active always-hungry kids.
