Here is the truth: some of the best meals you have ever eaten have not been from an indoor kitchen.
That is right! We love food when it is cooked outside. The fresh breeze on your face and the crackling of the campfire are the perfect ambiance for a great meal. So then what is the reason that we choose not to cook outside more?
The answer, we don’t have the right equipment.
Cooking outside is one of the most rewarding culinary experiences that you can have, and yet having the right equipment is one of the most overlooked parts of the cook. Most often you are looking for lightweight equipment that is both durable and easy to clean. You want multi-purpose cooking pieces that can help you make breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Well, the answer is here! You need the Stanley Base Camp Cook Set.
My favorite dish to cook outside is breakfast. Nothing beats a skillet full of eggs and carbs over fire. I brought my new Stanley Base Camp Cook Set out to the lake for the weekend to test it out and see if it could handle my rugged cooking style. It definitely could.
Firstly, it comes with tons of equipment that fit perfectly inside of a 3.7 qt pot. You have a skillet, utensils, spatulas, plates, bowls, dish rack, heat resistant trivet and a cutting board. This compact cooking maven is ready to handle all your over the campfire experiences.
If you are going to test this bad boy out, then you need to try my new Chipotle Egg Skillet recipe below. This spicy and sweet skillet will fill you up with all the necessary calories to take on a day of adventure. Just make sure to pack your Stanley Base Camp Cook Set!
