Salmon on an open flame

You can’t beat the sizzle of meat as it cooks on an open flame. And it’s really easy to do.

For our gear review, check outdoor deluxe boiler. It’s cheap to purchase and can make a lot of your camping meals really easy. Some fire pits in parks come with a a grill you can cook on which is awesome, but sometimes you just want to build the fire the way you want to build it and cook what you want to cook (and evenly!). The broiler can handle bread (to toast), meat of any kind (hamburgers, sausages, hot dogs) and vegetables (which are awesome if you melt a bit of butter and lather them up). Cleaning is the only issue because it’s tough to get really clean. When I’m done cooking I leave it on the fire for a while to crisp anything that was left on it, then I use a barbecue brush to clean up the worst of it. At home I use an SOS pad in a big laundry sink. This item is not ideal for backcountry camping so if you’re planning to be out in the bush with minimum gear for a few days, you’ll have to go a little old fashioned. Check it out at

For our nutrition section, eating meat over a flame is the next best thing to being in love with sushi. And you can cook any kind of meat using the boiler. There’s almost no need to add anything but your favorite spices and the smoke of the fire will take care of the rest.

I’ve included less common known nutritional facts about salmon but I think most people know how good it is for you already. The only thing to be cautious of is where you get it from. Just like chicken, not all salmon is created equal. Try not to purchase from places that farm their salmon but rather places that are fresh caught in open water. Also stick to salmon that is -not- imported.
