Sierra Trading Post Tip: Camping food doesn't have to be all granola and hot dogs. You can create yummy gourmet meals with a little understanding of grilling and adapting recipes to the grill. If you're interested in kicking your camping food up a notch, consider taking a grilling or outdoor cooking class at your local culinary school or university. You'll learn that grilling is really not that intimidating, and you can grill anything from pizza to fresh fruit. You'll also learn how to measure the heat of a grill (either open flame or gas), and how to prepare food for cooking on the grill. You should learn how to adapt regular recipes to grill cooking, too. Once you get the hang of it, you'll see cooking camping food over a grill is just as easy as grilling in the backyard. And, you'll see that you can create some mighty tasty gourmet recipes that taste like you've spent hours preparing them.
There are many portable grills available today that make the perfect choice for camping cooking. You can create truly gourmet meals over the grill, turning camping food from blah to amazing. If you don't want to rely on the campfire grill, a portable gas grill may be just the thing for your camping food needs.
