Stripped of all the comforts of your home, the great Australian outback provides you with a thrilling, refreshing sensation, enabling you to step back and take a vacation from the monotony of the digital world. However, the one thing that most of us need to to bring to the backcountry in order to properly fuel up for the day is a compact kitchen. Cooking under the open sky does not necessarily have to be complicated. All you need are just a few items to prepare delicious meals for you and your loved ones.
When choosing what you’ll eat on your camping trip, keep your meals simple. Stay away from meals that are too complex to cook as you don’t want to slave away cooking for too long outdoors. The food you take with you should be almost effortless to cook, such as bacon, steak, sausages, boiled eggs, chopped red potatoes, grilled vegetables, and of course, s’mores. To make cooking seamless, your best bet is taking a camp kitchen stove with you. You may be just fine with a one-burner stove, but for the ultimate convenience, you can also take a two-burner stove. That way you can prepare more food at once faster.
Another must-have item is the cooler as you will need something that will keep your foods and drinks cool and fresh. Sure, you might be able to get by with a budget cooler, but ice chest technology has greatly evolved over the past few years, which means there are many models with some awesome features. Some models are designed to be indestructible keeping your food and drinks safe even from a bear encounter and can undoubtedly withstand the harsh weather elements. When buying a cooler, consider one with wheels for more convenient transportation.
You may think you won’t need it, but actually, a sturdy, heat-resistant table is of the essence for a camp kitchen. Without a kitchen camp table, you will have a problem keeping your cookware organized. Moreover, being unorganized will prolong the time it will take you to prepare a meal, which eventually will turn out to be more of a hassle than an enjoyment. Look for a table that is spacious and easily portable. Some tables come with a sink and shelves for storing your pots and pants. These tables are all-in-one units as they offer you a place for washing while providing you with a convenient place to keep your kitchen equipment stored and organized.
