For some camping fans, especially those designated as camp chefs, cooking a great meal outside is the highlight of many trips. For others, eating that meal is just as satisfying. To enjoy cooking and eating camp meals, a few pieces of equipment are absolute necessities. First, keep food cold and fresh, so you need a quality cooler. Also, without a way to cook it, a sandwich is about your only meal choice, and sometimes a lousy one at that. Lastly, you need to have something to eat your food out of and with, and some tableware can keep you from eating with your fingers off an old paper plate. Fortunately, all three are widely available in a range of qualities and prices.
