There is no reason to rough it and eat acorns these days. There are great technologies that can pack food in easily and effectively.
Of course, this assumes you know how to cook in the outdoors. There are a number of ways to cook outdoors effectively. Let’s look at three big ways to cook like a pro in the great outdoors.
Cast Iron Cookware
Carrying simple cast iron cookware can change a lot about how you cook. That is because cast iron heats up evenly. You see, the struggle most of us face when cooking over fire is uneven temperatures.
Your cast iron will change all of that! You will be able to cook nearly anything much better with a solid cast iron dutch oven or even a cast iron pan.
To find that great even heating you can also cover food in hot coals. Of course, to do that you need to wrap the food and protect it. An aluminum foil wrap can allow you to bury different types of food and nestle them in hot coals to cook.
Potatoes and chicken are great to wrap in foil and place over coals.
A Horno Oven
This is a great multi-purpose oven, if you are camping, hiking or just surviving this Horno oven or in simple terms, brick or stone and mud oven could cook your food, boil water so you can drink it and keep your shelter warm long after the flames go out.
All in all, this is a super easy makeshift oven that even a child could put together. This sort of oven could even be made in the urban areas too if the power goes out, you can always find brick or cinder block laying around.
