Just because you're on the road, doesn't mean you have to miss out on the most important meal of the day. There are several techniques for preparing a delicious meal over a campfire.

  • Cast-iron pans are your friend, as is aluminum foil.
  • Choose utensils and equipment that is designed for outdoor use.
  • Leather gloves and closed-toe shoes can prevent accidental burns while cooking over an open fire.
  • Invest in a metal grill to place over the fire, and some skewers.
  • Avoid foods that drip fat, as they may cause the fire to flare up.
  • Learn and use proper food handling/sanitation procedures when cooking raw meat.
