There’s nothing better or more primal than cooking outdoors. Whether it’s over an open fire at a campsite or on a grill in the backyard, outdoor cooking is fun, enjoyable, and lets you make foods that are an experience. Whether you’re a regular at-home chef or still pretty new to the whole cooking thing, there are tons of tools that can help you cater the experience to your own skill set. Propane stoves have long been a mainstay at campsites, with two or three burners that make it easy to cook up meals from breakfast to dinner in no time flat—all while setting up at a picnic table or other steady surface. A popular new tool for many outdoor cooks is a griddle. While it’s not new to cooking in general, it’s certainly become popular at home and around camp with portable models that are easy to move around and get screaming hot. Fire them up for eggs, bacon, and extra crispy hashbrowns, or make the best smash burgers in the woods after a long hike. If you’re out on the water and want to eat your catch, grill grates and baskets make it easy to throw your cleaned fish over a hot fire and have a fresh meal.
