Stoves can be used to do much work around the campsite, from boiling water to cooking rice. In fact, a camp stove offers one of the easiest and simplest ways of cooking when you are at campsite. Stoves do not require that you build any fire pit or wait for coal to burn down. A stove uses fuel, and you can light it up anytime you want, even in the middle of the night when you feel like you want to take coffee.
The types of foods you can cook on a camp stove are similar to those you can cook with your stove at home. Stoves will cook whatever you have brought. The only limitation may be the ingredients you have. Camp stoves just offer the same services as those of your gas burner back at home. One thing that you should keep in mind is to ensure that the heat is measured correctly. To determine the amount of heat that your stove gives, adjust the flame to the required level. The image below shows an example of a camping stove.
MEASURING THE HEAT OF YOUR FIRE
Measuring your temperature can be one of the biggest challenges in campfire cooking. If the heat is not set right, your dish has a higher chance of being ruined no matter how good your ingredients or recipe may be. A simple technique can be used to ensure that you prevent culinary messes resulting from the use of too cold or too hot fire. To establish the heat from your fire, place your hand above the source of fire and count the seconds. If you can count to up to 4-5seconds, it means you have low heat. If you can count up to 3 seconds, then you have a medium fire. However, if you pull your hand away in 1-2 seconds, then your fire is very hot, and you need to make the necessary adjustments.
