Outdoor Cooking

What all does everyone have to cook with? I was thinking of buying a camp oven but wasn't sure if it was worth spending the money on. Right now we have the grill/smoker we bought, the camp stoves and the microwave. I also have a small toaster oven in case I want biscuits or corn bread.

Love my 36" Blackstone Griddle (check out more pics of it in the campfire cooking section of this forum https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=18027 )

I have a large grill that I put over the fire, a cast iron skillet, 3 burner coleman stove and a camp oven. I can pretty much do anything we want to eat with these tools.

Camp ovens can do a lot like deep frying, baking, etc. But they, like all other cast iron, are an art and require a little patience and a learning curve. There is a thread on here called "Lunch/Diner Ideas". Check it out. Lots of food items and methods mentioned.

Pretty simple here...Weber 14" Smokey Joe charcoal grill and also a Weber "Go Anywhere" gas grill which I only use if in an area with a fire ban.

Medium sized charcoal grill and Coleman gas grill. Nothing special, but we can pretty much cook anything we want...

Thanks!!! I feel like i want to buy everything they have @ Bass Pro and Cabela's but I know I don't need all that. I did buy set of pots and pans, plus I have 2 iron skillets. I also bought pretty much everything I thought I would need, measuring cups/ spoons I know I probably wont need them but I was excited and wanting to buy everything when we got the camper in July!!!

If you decide to buy new cast iron, make sure you look on amazon.com before buying. I got my new Lodge camp oven on there for less than half of what everyone else wanted. Also, most of my cast iron is vintage and I picked it up at flea markets and garage sales. The old Wagner and Griswold stuff is great! Personally, I wouldn't go crazy until you figure out your style and what you like to do. Cast iron cooking isn't everyone's cup of tea. But a grill of some kind is great, especially on that goes over the fire. And we like our vintage coleman stove for outside because it keeps the heat and messes out there instead of in the trailer.

Most of our Iron skillets are vintage also. It's the best for corn bread. I gave my small Iron skillet to my niece and its the only one I had that was small enough to fit in the toaster oven, so now I am on the hunt for another small one so we can have corn bread while camping LOL Thanks for everyone's help. It can be a bit overwhelming once you get to the site and set up and then you think oh no I need this and that but most of the stuff I have taken from the house.

I always felt like I needed a lot of stuff too but then I got sick of hauling a bunch of stuff around we never used. Same story with most RV junk. Always seems neat but always breaks or never gets used. Oh, and we also have a vintage percolator that makes the best coffee.
