Default What Methods Do You Use For Cooking?

I absolutely love cooking over the campfire, but I recently picked up one of these Jetboils.

What methods do you use?

I enjoy using my Dutch Oven. My family favorite is the triple chocolate cake.

Dutch ovens are very popular amongst campers. However I usually use a basic grill placed on top of the fire because of its simplicity and versatility.

That is the most common way I cook while camping right now.

Until my last outing, I did most of my cooking on a gas "turkey fryer" stand. It was a comfortable height and allowed for easy cooking in my cast iron pans. Im quite the fan of cast iron! I purchased a double burner gas thingy from Home Depot just before our last outing, and I really like that. Same principal and setup as the turker fryer, but with two burners.

I normally cook over the campfire or the gas grill,my wife doesn't really care for all those smells in the trailer,especially when I fix bacon early in the morning. I agree with Greywuff I won't part with my cast iron.

I prepare things ahead of time, depending on fire restrictions. BLM camping sometimes does have its drawbacks.

I still use propane gas and a small burner. It may be old school, but still works for me.

I just got back from a week long camping trip. This time I did most of the cooking over the campfire with a cast iron skillet.

Surely its old school, but you will love the extra flavor from the woods scent.

It was absolutely amazing. After a long day of hiking and exploring, it is a perfect end to the day.

Default a tiny camping stove with gas

I think making fire with wood is great. But i am afraid it may make a big fire in forest. I use a tiny camping stove to cook when i am camping.

I've camped in tents, trailers, pad and sleeping bag to open sky, cabins, just about every which way. I have no favorite method for cooking so I have used liquid fueled stoves, backpacking stoves, BBQs, open wood fire, Charcoal, toaster ovens, propane ovens, smokers, dutch ovens, deep fryers, microwaves, and even restaurants or diners that do the cooking for me. It's all been successful for a good meal when out camping.
