Outdoor cooking is one of the best things about camping. Not only do you get to enjoy the great outdoors, but also can enjoy some great family time. There is nothing like cooking over an open fire and enjoying some campground activities on the side with your family.
Outdoor cooking also has its benefits when vacationing with your RV. Instead of having to eat out every meal you have the luxury of making your own meals at your campsite. This can save you a lot of money and be very beneficial to your budget at the same time.
If you are not used to cooking outdoors, or are just beginning this process, it can be little tricky at first. So start out with the basics and work your way up. Roasting hot dogs over an open fire is a good way to start. Marshmallows are always fun too! Kids have a blast taking part in this activity. Although, first things first is knowing how to start a campfire in your fire pit.
Many people like to cook on a BBQ pit too. You can find small BBQ pits that travel well even for smaller campers. Some campers even have outside kitchens that can help with your cooking outdoors. You always have the luxury of cooking indoors as well, if you run out of room or the weather is not cooperating.
If you are looking for a quick meal, outdoor cooking is not the way! This takes more time than using your stove and or oven in your camper. This type of cooking can be very relaxing and even experimental, especially for the first timers.
You could even add some romance to this by lighting a few of the citronella candles to keep the bugs and intruders away!
Just remember, even if the first thing that comes off the fire or BBQ pit is a little charbroiled, you'll just have to try again! The best thing about campfires and cooking, is you get to practice, practice, practice, and then ENJOY!
