External cooking

Post by Feran » Jan 09, 2023 Views: 34119

I am sure this has been discussed previously, but hey, maybe things have changed.

To use a small camping stove outside, say to cook smelly things, or avoid heating/fogging up the interior, do you prefer

1) Camp stove on a 1lb propane/butane can

2) Camp stove connected to the campers propane tank

1) seems more flexible as you are not tethered, and therefore also no tripping hazard
2) seems cheaper + environmentally friendly long-term, plus no extra mini-tanks to carry

Anything else glaring/obvious that I may be missing?

Here are some tools that you may find helpful for external cooking:

Stove: You'll need a stove to cook your food. There are many types of camping stoves available, ranging from small, portable stoves that use propane/butane canisters to larger stoves that can be connected to a propane tank.

Fuel: Depending on the type of stove you have, you'll need a fuel source. If you have a stove that uses small propane/butane canisters, you'll need to bring enough canisters to last the duration of your trip. If you have a stove that's connected to the camper's propane tank, you'll need to make sure the tank is full before you leave.

Cooking utensils: You'll need pots, pans, and other cooking utensils to prepare your meals. It's a good idea to bring a variety of utensils, including a spatula, tongs, and a spoon, so you can cook and serve different types of food.

Grill: If you want to grill food, you'll need a grill. There are portable grills available that are designed for camping, or you can use a grill that's connected to the camper's propane tank.

Cooler: A cooler is essential for keeping perishable food items fresh while you're camping. Make sure to pack enough ice or ice packs to keep the cooler cold.

Table: It can be helpful to have a table or other flat surface to use as a workspace while you're cooking. If you don't have a built-in table in your camper, you can bring a portable table or use a picnic table if one is available at your campsite.

Other helpful tools: Other tools you may find helpful for external cooking include a knife, cutting board, dishcloth, and dish soap for cleaning up. It's also a good idea to bring a first aid kit in case of any accidents.
