  • 1. 5 MUST HAVETOOLS FOR CAMP COOKING
  • 2. The Countdown BeginsWhen camping, eat is paramount. Many retailers carry good cooking gear, which makes cooking outside a culinary adventure. Cooking gear is offered in many sizes & varieties. It is recommended, however, that campers carry nomore than 15-25% of their total body mass on their backs.
  • 3. Stoves What kind of stoves are out there?(1) Liquid Fuel Stoves – Liquid fuel stoves are designed to be used with readily available fuels such as gas, kerosene, or alcohol. The onlydownside to liquid fuel stoves is the weight of thestove, the need to carry bulky fuel, and some cost upwards of $300.(2) Compressed Gas Stoves – Compressed gas stoves burn butane, isobutene, or propane. They are easy to light, and cost anywhere from $30-150.
  • 4. (3) Solid Fuel Stoves – Solid fuel stoves burnwood or pellets are easy to start, and require littlemaintenance. They range in price from $30-130. Regardless of the stove you get, be sure to bring along matches!! Pots & Pans An Essential Cooking Supply Pots and pans come in a variety of sizes, anddependent on the size of your camping party andyour needs will depend on what types of pots and pans you want to get.Pots and pans are made of the following materials: (1) Aluminum – Strong, lightweight, andinexpensive. The only downsides to aluminum are
  • 5. that they tend to scratch very easily, and your food may stick. They range in price from $15-20. (2) Stainless Steel – Slightly heavier than aluminum. Downside: Heat does not distributewell. Stainless steel ranges in price from $15-20. (3) Titanium – Titanium is probably your best choice as it’s durable, easy to clean, and lighterthan the others. However, it is much more costly.Most titanium pots and pans are going to set you back at least $50 each. Dishes Helpful, but not always necessary Camp dishes are more versatile than traditionaldishes. They are space-saving, and have multiple
  • 6. uses. Camping mugs or cups are helpful as they can be used for drinking and eating as well as beused for a multitude of other uses that you see fit.Camping plates, on the other hand, are often just a waste of pack space and weight, and are usually considered a luxury by experienced campers. Dishes come in three different forms:(1) Polypropylene – Weighs about 2.5 ounces and costs around $3. They are not very long lasting, however, and would need to be replaced often. (2) Stainless Steel – Heavier than polypropylene weighing from 2.5 to 3.5 ounces, and cost around $7-10. (3) Titanium – As with pots and pans, it’s yourbest bet as they weight less than two ounces, but
  • 7. they are more expensive. A bowl is going to cost atleast $15 and a cup can cost upwards of $40 most places. Cutlery What’s out there?Cutlery is going to be beneficial unless you want to eat with a stick. Cutlery comes in three different types: (1) Plastic – Made of lexan, tritan, or acetal. A thing called a “spork,” which is a combination fork/spoon knife is great for saving room in your pack, and only cost around $2-3, but they often scratch, which can hold bacteria. (2) Aluminum – Lighter and more heavy durable than plastic, but cost is around $7.
  • 8. (3) Titanium – Even lighter than those above, more durable, but cost is higher at around $10. Finally:Cleaning Supplies: What you might want to bring alongIt is recommended that you carry a biodegradablesoap, scouring sponges, and dishtowel with you.To properly clean dishes follow these guidelines:
  • 9. (1) Heat sterile water with your stove, and pour some into each dirty dish. (2) Clean with scouring sponge using thebiodegradable soap only if it’s necessary, and then dry with the dishtowel, or set out to air dry. Be sure to always wash dishes at least 200feet from any water source to avoid any kind of contamination, or 200 feet from your campsite to avoid attracting unwanted wildlife.
  • 10. (1) Heat sterile water with your stove, and pour some into each dirty dish.
