  • Gift Guide for the Emergency Prepper

    Who Says a Present Can't be Practical?

    Do you have a prepper on your Christmas list this year? Whether they’ve been collecting emergency prep supplies for years or they’re just starting out, you can help them add a few items this season. Camp Chef stoves, ovens, and water heaters will be welcome additions to any prepper’s collection—you might want to snag one for yourself while you’re at it. Read on to see some of our favorite emergency prep gift items.

    1. Outdoor Oven

    The portable Outdoor Oven is beloved by preppers everywhere because of its versatility. In the oven, you can bake all the comforts of home, from cinnamon rolls to your grandmother’s bread recipe. On the top, the two burners allow you to boil water or grill food. In one portable cooker, you can pretty much do it all.

    2. Butane One Burner Stove

    When it comes to portable power, there’s no match to our Butane One Burner Stove. The fuel canister fits within the stove, so it’s easy to bring anywhere. The single burner puts out about 8,000 BTU, which is comparable to your kitchen stove at home. This is a great item for single preppers who would only need to cook for a couple of people at one time.

    3. Explorer Two-Burner Stove

    If your prepper has quite a few people in their family, they might want something a little bigger than a single burner stove. Our Explorer Two-Burner Stove has been setting the standard for outdoor cooking for years. The removable legs and folding windscreen make this stove easily portable, while two 30,000 BTU burners let you cook whatever you want and boil water with ease. All you need are a few cast iron dishes, a griddle, or any other stove accessories to complete the system.

    4. Hot Pot

    One of the most important parts of emergency preparedness is ensuring access to clean water. The Hot Pot is the perfect way to boil mass amounts of water at one time. The aluminum construction makes it lightweight, and the pour spout is convenient for drinking and washing.

    5. Stryker Stove

    If you’re interested in a 72-hour kit emergency preparedness gift, then the Stryker Stove is the way to go. It is small, incredibly lightweight, and ready to go wherever you need it. With the unique heat ring technology, the stove uses fuel more efficiently and boils water faster. This is a great gift to add to a backpack of MREs.

    6. Portable Water Heater

    Who says you can’t be comfortable in an emergency? The portable water heater is an excellent way to enjoy a hot shower, even in the middle of nowhere. It runs off of propane, so you can use the same fuel for your stove and your water heater. Your emergency prepper probably hasn’t thought of adding something like this to his or her collection, but it’s sure to be a hit gift.

    Give a gift this year that’s as practical as it is fun. Choose one of the items above, or start shopping for other emergency prep equipment now.

  • What the Heck is a Stove System?

    More than Just a Stove

    For over 25 years, we’ve been designing a better way to cook outdoors. Over all this time, we’ve made a huge variety of outdoor cooking gear. But our staple product from the start has been our propane camp stoves. Obviously, their rugged, durable design has a lot to do with their popularity; other features like powerful burners, removable legs, and matchless ignition have also had a hand in keeping our classic stoves at the top of the industry. However, there is one thing about our stoves that truly steals the show: they aren’t stoves.

    Okay, so they are stoves in the literal sense. But they aren’t just stoves. We created the stove system to fulfill all of your outdoor cooking needs. Our armada of accessories alongside each of our stoves makes it so that you can enjoy all your favorite meals outdoors just as easily as you enjoy them indoors—all one cooker. How does that work? Let us explain.

    Choose Your System

    More than just a stoveFlat top griddle, BBQ grill box, Artisan outdoor ovenAt Camp Chef, we have two separate cooking systems: 14-inch and 16-inch. You will often see these numbers on our stoves and accessories to show you to which system each product belongs. The measurements refer to the depth of the stove (front to back). Our 14-inch system includes mainly two-burner stoves and accessories with a 14-inch depth; our 16-inch system includes mainly three-burner stoves and accessories with a 16-inch depth. Starting to make sense?

    Now, why the different systems? One of our priorities at Camp Chef is offering you a better way to cook where and what you want, for however many people you have in your group. Some outdoor chefs like to keep things simple with two burners and two accessories, or a single large accessory. On the other hand, many others love having a third burner for an extra accessory to open up their cooking options.

    Mix and Match Accessories

    After you’ve decided on the size of your system, it’s time to add your choice of stove accessories. To give you the freedom to cook what you want, we offer a variety of accessories, including BBQ boxes, outdoor ovens, griddles, Dutch ovens, skillets, and more.

    Our professional grill boxes are awesome for grilling veggies, kabobs, burgers, brats, and more. They feature cast iron grill grates, so you can even sear your meat.

    As you might expect, our outdoor ovens are perfect for baking pizza wherever you go. However, you can also bake cookies, brownies, open-faced sandwiches, and even meat.

    Our griddles come pre-seasoned, so they’re ready to cook as soon as you are. They are among the most versatile of cooking accessories. You can make bacon, stir fry, eggs, pancakes, burgers, and more all on one surface.

    Dutch ovens and skillets—or any of our other cast iron accessories—are the Swiss army knife of your stovetop accessories. They can do so much. Baking, frying, searing…the list goes on. All of our cast iron pieces are pre-seasoned, so there’s no hassle after you take it out of the box.

    By mixing and matching all of these products, there is almost no limit to what you can make for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Seriously. Imagine bacon and eggs in the morning, pizza at lunch, and philly cheese steak sandwiches for dinner—all from a single stove.

    That’s what our stove systems are all about.

    Cook What You Want

    With so much cooking power and flexibility, you can cook what you love to eat no matter where you are. We’ve compiled a small list of our top recipe picks, all of which you can make using you 14-inch or 16-inch system. If you have other ideas, let us know in the comments.

  • How to Care for Your Griddle

    Griddle Care & Maintenance

    Most of our professional griddles come with a True-Seasoned Finish, just like all of our cast iron. To keep this finish in tip-top condition, your griddle needs a little TLC every now and then. By following the guide below, you will help keep your griddle clean, prevent rust, and build up the glass-like finish to keep food from sticking.

    Temperature Management

    Giving your griddle time to pre-heat properly will ensure you’re getting the best cooking performance possible. Start by setting your heat to Medium or Med-Low for about 5 minutes. This should bring the griddle surface temperature to about 350°-400° F, depending on the weather and environment. Then turn the heat to Med-Low or Low for 2-3 minutes for uniform heat across the entire cooking surface. The steel heats up quickly but cools slowly, so you’ll have plenty of heat to work with even after you turn down the burners. You’re ready to get cooking.

    Managing the heat on your griddle is important to prevent any possible damage. While the steel is strong and durable, you should only use Low or Medium heat settings. This is especially important if you want to use different heat settings on a large griddle that covers multiple burners. You have the capability to warm a tortilla on one side and cook a fajita mix on the other, but you want to keep both settings on Medium or lower.

    Cleaning

    After each use, clean off any food particles while the griddle is still warm. You might want to use a metal spatula or chain mail scrubber to remove stubborn bits. Then wash with hot water, mild dish soap (never use abrasive detergent), or our Cast Iron Cleaner. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Never scour or use a dishwasher, as this could chip the nice, seasoned finish you’re going for.

    Seasoning

    Once your griddle is clean, slowly warm it up again on your stove. Apply a thin layer of Cast Iron Conditioner or cooking oil. We recommend Cast Iron Conditioner because it has a palm oil base, which boasts a longer shelf life than any other natural oil. Be sure that the entire surface, including all corners, have been coated thoroughly. This will ensure that all surfaces of your cookware will be properly seasoned. This finish helps protect the steel or cast iron from rust and contributes to a nonstick cooking surface. Let your griddle cool, then wipe off excess conditioner or oil with a clean cloth.

    Storage

    After your griddle is clean, dry, and seasoned, you will need to store it in a dry, clean area. You can use one of our carry bags, specifically designed to hold your professional griddle. If you store it in one of these bags long-term, leave the zipper open 2-4 inches so the metal doesn’t “sweat.” This will prevent rusting.

    Pro Tips

    • • Be sure that your griddle is level before cooking, so that any juices or grease will drain properly. To test your griddle’s angle, pour a cup of water on the corner farthest from the grease drain and see where it flows.
    • • Use our grease cup accessory for an easy clean-up.
    • • If you need to adjust the heat on your griddle, do so a little at a time. The metal will heat quickly and cool slowly.
    • • Lightly oil the griddle before each use while it’s heating up. You can use Camp Chef Conditioner or cooking oil.
    • • The steel will continue to antique and darken with each use—it’s okay for it to accumulate a patina.
    • • Rusty, metallic tastes or discolored foods are signs of inadequate seasoning or may result from cooking heavily acidic foods. If this occurs, wash the griddle thoroughly and re-season.
    • • Check out all the cooking accessories we offer to go along with your griddle. You’ll be cooking like a pro in no time.

  • How to Use Your Outdoor Pizza Oven Like a Pro

    So you’ve just unpacked your Italia Artisan Pizza Oven or Outdoor Oven Accessory, and you’re ready to get cooking. First of all, congratulations on your new purchase. You’re in for plenty of goodies like backyard pizzas (here’s a dough recipe), skillet brownies (we’ve made those too), plank salmon (yummmm), and more. But before you fire up the oven and toss some food onto the stone, we wanted to share a few pro tips with you. These will help you get the most out of your new outdoor oven, no matter what meal you’re cooking. Ready? Here we go.

     

    Pro Tip #1

    Your stove’s Low and Medium settings will give you all the heat you need for your Outdoor Oven Accessory.

     

    Pro Tip #2

    Just like a true brick oven or your home oven, preheating your outdoor oven is essential. Always allow 10 minutes or more for your oven to get to the right temperature.

     

    Pro Tip #3

    Temperatures and cooking times will vary depending on outside temperatures, weather conditions, and what type of food you’re cooking. For example, frozen pizza will cook differently than a pizza made from scratch or store-bought dough.

     

    Pro Tip #4

    Keep an eye on the internal air temperature by looking at the built-in temperature gauge on the top of the pizza oven. Internal air heat will help melt cheese, soften toppings, and bake the top of your pizza crust. This temperature will react quickly when you change your heat setting or remove the metal oven cover.

     

    Pro Tip #5

    The pizza stone temperature will rise more slowly than the internal air temperature, but it will eventually become the hottest part of the oven. This is where most of the cooking happens (and how you get a crispy pizza crust).

      pizzas in the camp oven

    Pro Tip #6

    Use an infrared or cooking surface thermometer to monitor your pizza stone’s temperature.

     

    Pro Tip #7

    The ideal baking temperature for artisan pizza is 500° F to 550° F. Other kinds of pizza are best at 400° F.

     

    Pro Tip #8

    To melt cheese or other toppings as you remove your pizza, lift toward the top of the oven and hold for a few seconds before taking it out.

     

    Pro Tip #9

    Cast iron is perfect for baking breads or desserts in an outdoor oven.

     

    Pro Tip #10

    We have a few accessories just for cooking pizza in your new outdoor oven. Check out our pizza peel, pizza spatula, and rocking cutter to complete your pizza chef collection.

  • BTU: What Does It Mean & How Many Do You Need?

    What in the World is a BTU?

     

    If you’ve checked out any of our stoves, you’ve probably seen a BTU figure associated with each one. And if you’re here at this article, you probably looked at it and had no clue what it meant. Let us explain it to you.   BTU stands for British Thermal Unit. It is used in North America (not in Europe, despite the name) as a way to measure energy output. A single BTU is equal to the energy released by burning one match. To put things in perspective, your household stove burners are probably around 10,000 BTUs—that’s like burning 10,000 matches at once.  

    How Many BTUs Do I Need?

     

    For basic outdoor cooking and groups of only a few people, you’ll need a stove that has an output of at least 10,000 BTU per hour. Matching your kitchen stove in power, you’ll be able to cook pretty much anything you’d whip up indoors. This is the minimum amount of heat you should have with your camp stove.

     

    But why settle for the minimum? Most of our stoves feature burners with an output of 30,000 BTU/hr each. That’s 3 times more than your kitchen burners. Our double burner and triple burner stoves with this kind of cooking power are perfect for families and larger groups because you have the heat and surface area you need to cook a ton of food. Pro tip: these burners are also great for home canning.

     

    We also carry a couple of high-output stoves with burners that can pump out 60,000 BTU/hr. That’s a ton of power. In fact, that’s more than you would ever need for basic outdoor cooking. These stoves are best for specialty situations like home brewing, high capacity boiling, and extreme cold temperatures. You should only use heavy duty pots with a 60,000 BTU burner rather than accessories like our grill boxes, griddles, or pizza ovens. The high heat output can warp and burn out some of these more lightweight materials.

     

    Check out our infographic for a quick look at how many BTUs you need for your outdoor adventures.

  • 8 Ways to Step Up Your Tailgate Party This Weekend

    With football season right around the corner (you can almost hear the kickoff whistle echoing from the stadium), it’s time to haul your tailgating gear out of storage. Chances are you have a trusty stove that’s both portable and powerful, a heavy duty cooler for maximum beer-holding capacity, and a collection of tried-and-true recipes. Or maybe this is your first season, and you’re trying to decide what you need to kick things off with a bang. Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran, you can’t reach MVP status until you’re bringing these items and accessories with you every weekend.

     

    1. Extra bag of chips or pack of drinks

    Obviously, you should plan to bring plenty of food. But take special care and set aside an extra bag of chips or six pack. This inexpensive investment can go miles as a peace offering to your tailgate neighbors, especially if you’re a newcomer. Bring it by their tent when you arrive with no strings attached. You’ll make a few friends—and you’ll have someone to ask for help when you realize that you forgot the mustard.

     

    2. Frozen water bottles

    Filling your cooler with ice is great for cans of soda or beer, but when it comes to keeping your food cold, you need something that won’t create a puddle. You can buy ice packs for this—they’ll stay dry and cold. However, the next-level strategy is to pack your cooler with frozen water bottles. Not only will this keep food cool and dry, you’ll also have a half dozen refreshing waters to drink later that afternoon.

     

    3. Wireless thermometer

    As the party chef, you could find yourself pinned to your stove all day, watching the meat like a helicopter mom. If you’re paranoid about hitting the right temperature, you aren’t leaving yourself any time for fun. And last time we checked, tailgating is all about having a good time. With a wireless thermometer, you can enjoy the party and keep a close eye on your meat at the same time. Set the desired temperature, insert the meat probe, listen for the notification alarm, and dominate at cornhole until it’s time to eat.

     

    peanut butter burger4. Crazy condiments

    Ketchup, mustard, mayo, and relish might be classics, but they aren’t your only options. Don’t be afraid to up your tailgating game with some more…experimental condiments. Spice it up with BBQ sauce, teriyaki, ranch, and more. If you really want to score with your guests, bust out a homemade spread like artichoke pesto sauce or peanut butter sauce (yes, peanut butter). Trust us, your taste buds and tailgating buddies will thank you!

     

    5. Outdoor screen and projector

    You might have a portable TV to watch football games throughout the day; an outdoor movie screen takes that concept to the next level of awesome. You’ll need to bring a power source for your projector, but from there it’s a simple set up. Imagine all your favorite games showing on the big screen instead of your tiny computer. You’ll be the star of the parking lot.

     

    6. First Aid Kit

    Okay, okay. This might seem like a no-brainer, but the tailgating pros always put safety first. You never know when you might need some burn ointment after a hot splash of grease or a bandage after flag football gets too competitive.

     

    7. Hand-Washing Station

    Once the eating, drinking, playing, and high-fiving is done, you will want to be able to wash and dry your hands. Hand sanitizer is a quick, easy solution. But you can take it a step further with a bottle of hand soap and a 5-gallon beverage cooler as a wash station. Leave a large bucket underneath (or your dirty dishes tote, see below) to catch the soapy water, and voila! You have yourself a full tailgate hand-washing station. For added convenience, hook a paper towel rack onto your stove or grill.

     

    8. Empty plastic tote or collapsible garbage can

    When the burgers are eaten and the beers are gone, you only want to think about one thing: winning the big game. What you don’t want to think about is washing a pile of dirty spatulas, knives, trays, cutting boards, plates, and other scattered dishes. Cue the empty tub: you can pile everything into it without getting your car dirty, then forget about it until after the game. If you don’t have a spare tote, try using a collapsible garbage can like this one.  Either way, the idea is the same: clean-up in a snap.
