When warm weather strikes, there's no better place to be than roasting marshmallows by a campfire with friends and family. While planning for your trip, make sure you're prepared for other meals in the great outdoors with reliable outdoor cooking gear, such as camping stoves and camping ovens that are easy to pack in your vehicle.
Find the right stove for your crew. If you're cooking for just one or two, a single-burner stove may be all you need. When you're planning on preparing multiple dishes, consider a portable gas grill with a burner that lets you cook a few burgers and hot dogs in conjunction with a pan of your favorite side dish. There are even portable grills with a removable griddle, so you can enjoy a full breakfast out in the wild. Cooking for a crowd? A portable camping oven that houses a roast or a large turkey ensures all stomachs are filled.
When shopping for your preferred camping appliance, consider ease of use, power and fuel. Many camping stoves offer robust burners with matchless ignitions that deliver upwards of 20,000 BTUs of heat for fast results. If electrical power is hard to come by at your campsite, opt for a propane-fueled camp stove. The tanks are easy to pack and replace as needed. Be sure to have all the camp cookware and outdoor utensils and tableware needed for your trip before heading out.
