Donâ€™t be afraid to try new camping dishes. I like to grab a cookbook and pick out some basic ideas. If youâ€™ll be gone several days, try the same general dish twice, adding a new twist. For instance, I really canâ€™t get sick of meat and potatoes. So, how about last yearâ€™s venison one night and chicken the next. There rarely seem to be leftovers, so plan accordingly.
