I do 95 percent of the cooking at home and all of the cooking when camping. I hate food out of a box. I will make pulled pork in the Traeger at home and put in a vacuum bag and then put it in boiling water to heat. I make home made hamburger buns the day before and take them with us. I have a three burner stove from Costco so I do almost all of the cooking outside. I use the RVQ for grilling meats. It works for us!

When we were weekend campers we would fix things at home but usually make quick meals and used the BBQ a lot. Now we live in the trailer about 9 months a year and all is cooked here. We still use the outside BBQ a lot.

You sound like me making your own buns! Are we gluttons for punishment, or what? I have resorted to a Trader Joe's run before camping for hamburger and hot dog buns and ground beef patties and those yummy grass-fed beef hot dogs with no junk in them! But that all comes at such a price. I keep asking the kids to be vegetarians to save money and they just throw apples at me and ask for more bacon!

No kidding! My crazy 9yo hasn't found a drink he doesn't like. Loves my red wine and beer and, of course, pina coladas.

He only gets a sip and then we talk about alcohol and responsibility so he gets bored and runs off. Kinda like the old days....

We prepare some items like sloppy joes, sausage gravy or chili ahead and freeze them. For other cooked on-site items we portion out the ingredients into ziplock bags for easy prep. I'm the hubby and I do ALL the cooking and most of the cleanup when camping. To me, camp food is all part of the experience and I like to cook outdoors...on the cast iron of course.

Cast iron is about the best thing I've ever found to cook in. It just holds the heat so well. And if you season it properly and keep it clean (no soap), it will last forever.

X2......but DW has an issue with no soap, and the weight. So I keep my cast iron away from her. ;-o
