So you’re taking your family camping for the long weekend, it’s time to shed your luxuries for a few days and take in the beauty of Mother Nature. Cook your meals over the crackling fire and enjoy the over-burnt taste of your toast and bacon. Wait… you don’t want to give up your stove cooked meals? You’d kill for a bit of fast food down the path? Well heck, why didn’t you say so?
Taking home cooking out in to the wilderness is easier than ever these days. There are so many different sorts of stoves, ovens, grills, even deep friers that are portable and made for your camping adventures. You can make your family a great home cooked, fresh air infused meal with absolute ease. We know how much everyone loves to indulge in a little deep-fried goodness now and then too, so why not pack up that small deep fryer you have stashed in your cupboards at home? It really is more fun when you’re outside, I promise.
If you don’t have a portable stove, there are so many options to choose from these days. You can get a single burner stove to cook for one, multiple burner stoves that give you the option of cooking for more, and even an oven/stove hybrid unit that basically gives you the option to make whatever you please (the Camp Chef Camping Outdoor Oven with 2 Burner Camping Stove is what you need to make all your cooking dreams come true!). Now that hybrid is a bit more expensive, but you can generally get a great 2-burner stove or grill for $150-$350.
The Coleman 2 Burner Dual Fuel Compact Liquid Fuel Stove is the highest rated 2-burner on Amazon. It’s great to have that sort of feedback from real users. Using gas as a fire starter, it’s a bit different than the standard propane or butane burners. Somehow I think this makes it easier and more favorable for some. You can get a home cooked breakfast with some pan-fried bacon, eggs, even a steak or kabob on the grill. You can even stop by your favorite food truck and get a few tips and tricks on how to re-create your favorite dish with your portable stove!
Back to your deep fryer for a second. Bringing this bad boy with you will open up your options immensely for creating your favorite street-side meal. Have some onions? Toss them in there fryer while you grill up some hot dogs or burgers and you’ll have yourself a good old fashioned dinner. Even the more outlandish meals you can grab from the streets these days have been tossed in a deep fryer. Maybe try throwing a Mars bar in there, or your bacon-wrapped hamburger. You can even batter up some fish you might have caught in the nearby stream to make it taste a little more like home!
You know how much we love food truck meals, and we’re just trying our best to pass it on to you, wherever you may go!
