Here's what you'll need to have a functional outdoor kitchen for camping: bowls, plates, eating utensils, a cast iron or other high-heat-safe pot and pan; a large, heat-safe spoon and spatula; a long scewer for heating food over the fire (unless you want to use sticks); heat-safe oven mitts; a cooler with ice; a can opener; and dish soap and a small plastic tub for cleaning and reusing your plates and utensils. A camping stove can make meal prep easier than cooking over a campfire.
