If you are going camping soon you are going to want to try one of our 18 Best Campfire Recipes the next time you are ready to enjoy the great outdoors!
Whether you are cooking over an open campfire, your own backyard fire pitt or having a backyard cookout, cooking in the outdoors is fun, rewarding and easy when you have the right tools.
A few of our must have tools for outdoor cooking include:
- Kindling, wood, fire starter
- Tongs, spoons
- Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
- Cast Iron pans or pots
- Sturdy paper plates for holding foil dinners
- Campfire grate (some come with but you may need to bring your own)
- Grill brush
- Portable campfire ring
When I was a kid, camping meant heading to the back country and making our own fire pitts. We had no grills, no grates, no portable campfire ring – we had to wing it. Tin foil dinners were our main meals most weekends!
These days when we go camping we are all about easy camping meals although sometimes they can be a little over the top camping feasts!
In this camping recipe round up you will find everything you need to make tasty meals including french toast, foil dinners, mac n cheese – even campfire nachos!
