of if you are cooking on an outdoor stove or if you are simply making
a simple meal outdoors, there are a few cooking tips that you could
follow to improve your chances of being able to make something edible.
• Get organized – There are a number of things that you
will need if you hope to create a great meal. However, the first step
before you begin cooking is to simply be prepared. Think about all
the tools or cookware you might need to make your meals. Planning
will improve the likelihood that you will have everything that you
• Practice makes perfect – Like with everything else,
a little practice always helps. So, before you move to the great outdoors
to show your cooking prowess, it would be a good idea to practice
making the meal inside your own home. This will give you an idea of
what kinds of things you should expect when the moment of truth comes.
• Keep it simple – If you are cooking outdoors, it may
be a good idea to leave the lemon wedges and garnish at home. This
doesn’t mean that you can’t create a delicious meal, but
it does mean that you should not try to do too much. Keep focused
on the task at hand and your meal will be better tasting and easier
• Leave the lid alone – Your cook time will decrease if
you put a lid on all the pots you use. However, after you put the
lid on, avoid the temptation of wanting to check on your food every
minute. If you’ve prepared properly, you should have a good
idea about how long it will take to cook the food.
• Spice it up – When you practice the meal at home, use
different spices that may add to the flavor of your meal. There are
a number of spices you can use but you should make sure that the food
and the spices that you use mix well together.
• Stir it up – Because an outdoor stove may not heat proportionally
all of the time, it is a good idea to stir the food at certain intervals.
Doing so will ensure that the food will be cooked evenly and this
will also help prevent food from sticking to your pots and pans.
• Make it delicious and nutritious – Whatever it is that
you decide to make, be sure that it is the appropriate meal for you.
If you are in your backyard, you can cook something a little heavier
than if you were on a hiking excursion deep in the woods.
