How to prepare for a wonderful outdoor cooking?
When looking through camping groups on Facebook, I always read such comments which goes like “outdoor cooking makes food taste better.” I guess you must have noticed that at least once. So in this article, we would love to figure out what’s the irresistible charm of outdoor cooking and how to prepare for a great cooking experience.
After talking with several outdoor enthusiasts, we find that although they start with different reasons, they still share something in common: re-connection with nature, friends and inner peace. “Being stuck in the limited office for a long time, I feel part of myself is disappearing and there is nothing I can do to stop it. But when I am out for camping and cooking with friends, I could feel the unparalleled connection with nature, and complete relaxation from head to toe. I am obsessed with this damn amazing refreshing feeling.” Jess said, “And now, it’s my lifestyle.”
Want to get on board now? Better to start with right camping kitchen equipment. Picking up the right gears is the first step to have great camping food. Here we prepare a list of your must-haves for a fantastic camping cooking experience.

The decent folding design makes it possible to set up or take down within a few minutes, so you can spend more time with your friends enjoying cooking instead of painfully pitching it up for hours.
An outdoor cooking without a portable cooler is far away from a perfect outdoor adventure. Cold beer and fresh ingredient! Who can argue with that? However, there are numerous kinds of products, it’s never an easy job to pick up the most suitable one. To make it easier, we recommend this ACOPOWER Car Refrigerator.
It is the first and the only one battery powered fridge Freezer. The lithium battery is back up power as UPS power which keeps refrigerator operating while staying off grid. Full charged battery powers 10 hours at 0℃/32℉. The refrigerator allows three kinds of charging methods: 12VDC power, 100~240V AC with Adapter or solar panel (12V-50V). Besides, it has three size options —— 32 quarts, 42 quarts, 52quarts to satisfy the needs of weekend camping or week-long camping.
While most campgrounds have campfires with grates, their condition can be less than appealing. This COOK'N'ESCAPE titanium campfire grill grate can be placed on top of the campground grill grate (with the legs collapsed) or used on it’s own (when free-standing). Made of titanium, it will not leave a metallic smell or taste, never rust, and keep the original flavor of food to the largest extent, durable enough for years of outdoor camping and hiking.
Our KingCamp reusable bamboo dinnerware set is the perfect alternative to disposable tableware. They are light, sturdy, odorless and easy to clean. Meanwhile, they are more fashionable and practical than traditional plastic or porcelain tableware, which will undoubtedly make an impressions on your guests.
You’ve got all the fundamental equipment for outdoor cooking, but that doesn’t mean you could just hit the road and park somewhere to start cooking. There’s still many things to confirm one by one. For example, is it forbidden to use propane or open fires on your campsite? Does the campground offer water? If not, you need to get a large water storage can. Figure out all the issues you may come across for the first camping cooking, and deal them in advance. After that, just enjoy your adventure as much as you like.
