Review: Camp-Cooking Gear

Upgrade your outdoor kitchen. 

The height of camping season may be over, but it isn't too late to check out some new kitchen products for your outdoor kitchen. Here are a few of our favorites.

GSI Outdoors Destination Kitchen set

GSI Outdoors Destination Kitchen
At less than two pounds, GSI’s 24-piece Destination Kitchen includes every utensil needed for a gourmet adventure in the woods or on the river. Included are four full sets of cutlery, a pivoting high-temp nylon spatula and spoon that rotate from storage to execution, waterproof ultralight salt-and-pepper shakers, two soft-sided condiment bottles, a cutting board, utility knife, cheese grater, collapsible whisk, scrubber, and dish towel. $50. —Simon Peterson

GSI Outdoors Sierra table set

GSI Outdoors Sierra
Made from kiln-hardened heavy-gauge steel, GSI Outdoors’ Sierra table set is extremely durable and perfectly suited for use outdoors and in. From river trips to backyard barbeques, this table set will stand the test of time. Once again, GSI has produced a reliable product at an affordable price that outshines not only the competition, but also the table set in my cabinets at home. $60. —Simon Peterson

GSI Outdoors Santoku knife set

GSI Outdoors Santoku
Reckon one knows he is a true outdoor chef when the knife set in his camp box outshines the one in his kitchen. With ergonomic rubber handles and rockered, razor-sharp stainless-steel blades, I have achieved said status with the GSI Outdoors Santoku knife set. And with them ringing in at less than 40 bucks, I might have to grab another set to upgrade my knives at home. $35. —Simon Peterson

Meat Shredz Pulled Pork

Meat Shredz Pulled Pork
The gram-counting craze hasn’t let up, but it also hasn’t stopped backpacking food from returning to its roots, with hearty, healthy, meat-heavy meals. Take the dried, ready-to-eat Pulled Pork from Meat Shredz, for example. Eat it right out of the bag or use it to make a tasty soup, slider, or quesadilla; regardless, after scarfing one of these suckers, you won’t go back to standard freeze-dried pasta. $6. —Mike England
