When looking through camping groups on Facebook, I always read such comments which go like “outdoor cooking makes food taste better.” I guess you must have noticed that at least once. So in this article, we would love to figure out what’s the irresistible charm of outdoor cooking and how to prepare for a great cooking experience.

After talking with several outdoor enthusiasts, we find that although they start with different reasons, they still share something in common: re-connection with nature, friends, and inner peace. “Being stuck in the limited office for a long time, I feel part of myself is disappearing and there is nothing I can do to stop it. But when I am out for camping and cooking with friends, I could feel the unparalleled connection with nature, and complete relaxation from head to toe. I am obsessed with this damn amazing refreshing feeling.” Jess said, “And now, it’s my lifestyle.”

Want to get on board now? Better to start with the right camping kitchen equipment. Picking up the right gears is the first step to have great camping food. Here we prepare a list of your must-haves for a fantastic camping cooking experience.


As the most fundamental gear for a cooking event, nobody would leave it behind. But with dozens of different models, finding the perfect one can be a challenge! Here we recommend KingCamp Bamboo Multifunctional Cooking Table with Lantern Pole. This folding cooking table combines the locker, BBQ station, work station, sink, and extension together, serving as a complete outdoor kitchen system. The decent folding design makes it possible to set up or take down within a few minutes, so you can spend more time with your friends enjoying cooking instead of painfully pitching it up for hours.


2. Camp Cooler or Ice Pack

Outdoor cooking without a portable cooler is far away from a perfect outdoor adventure. Cold beer and fresh ingredients! Who can argue with that? However, there are numerous kinds of products, it’s never an easy job to pick up the most suitable one. To make it easier, we recommend this KingCamp Dry Ice Packs.

With the high-density compact foam, seamless heat sealing technology, and fully airtight leak-proof zipper, its cooling time reaches 72 hours. It satisfies the needs of weekend camping. It’s portable for your outdoor adventure and can be fixed on boats or kayaks thanks to the reinforced D-rings on the side.


3. Portable grill

While most campgrounds have campfires with grates, their condition can be less than appealing. This KingCamp Folding Campfire Grill grate can be placed on top of the campground grill grate (with the legs collapsed) or used on its own (when free-standing). And if you put a bamboo board on the grill, it will turn into a normal table.


4. Cookware

Our KingCamp Lightweight Camping Cookware Mess Kit is a perfect choice. They are light, sturdy, and easy to clean. KingCamp's cooking set is space-saving and compact. A carry bag is provided to pack all the items neatly for easy carrying. With carabiners, you can hang the complete cook set or the folding bowl on your backpack easily.


You’ve got all the fundamental equipment for outdoor cooking, but that doesn’t mean you could just hit the road and park somewhere to start cooking. There are still many things to confirm one by one. For example, is it forbidden to use propane or open fires on your campsite? Does the campground offer water? If not, you need to get large water storage can. Figure out all the issues you may come across for the first camping cooking, and deal with them in advance. After that, just enjoy your adventure as much as you like.

In the outdoor world, there are many types of activities, such as fishing, music festival, sport competitions, canoeing, hiking, van camping, auto camping, glamping, and other adventures. And you can invite different people to your outdoor activities. For example, you can go camping with family, friends, lovers, couples, your kids or pets. Regular family camping may become lifelong memories. You can choose your own outdoor lifestyle from such a large amount of ideas and enjoy the camping fun.
