Camper's Guide to Outdoor Cooking Review


The Camperís Guide to Outdoor Cooking by John G. Ragsdale contains everything from fires to fixinís in his second edition cookbook.

The author, John G. Ragsdale is a fellow camper who is from the South Central USA region who lives in El Dorado, Arkansas. He is an experienced camper and outdoorsman. He has served as a volunteer for the Boy Scouts of America for many years and believes that having a tasty meal while camping is as important as enjoying the great outdoors.

Included in the book are more than 200 recipes featuring meats, vegetables, salads, soups, sauces, breads, desserts and snacks. You will surely find a meal you and your family is sure to enjoy.

This book provides a wealth of information covering topics like how to build, start and maintain a fire worthy of cooking over. It also explains the type of wood required to kindle a fire or produce the necessary heat to effectively cook the meal to completion. All of these things are required information to effectively produce a wonderful meal in the outdoors.

John compares stoves and ovens of various fuel types and how they work so that you might choose the equipment that best suits your camping style and needs. He also provides a supply list of cooking utensils, pots and pans necessary to cook the meal recipes provided in the book.

Kayaking, hiking and camping are some of my favorite recreational activities and there are many wonderful places to enjoy an outing or camping in the South Central USA region. But because kayaks and backpacks are small and space is limited carrying equipment for camping out and cooking out are at a premium. This predicament is what prompted the purchase of the Camperís Guide to Outdoor Cooking.

In my opinion the book would have better suited a camper if it included less store bought items and instead used items that could be acquired from the environment around the campsite rather than have to pack these items in and out. As presented a camper would have to take a tremendous amount of canned and refrigerated items that are not especially suited to the light traveler or camper.

I find this book and its recipes more suited to someone who loves to cook outdoors and travel in an RV with the ability to store canned goods and refrigerate perishables rather than a kayaker or hiker who camps along the way.

I purchased the book myself and have received no compensation for the review of the book. I do recommend this book to all outdoor enthusiasts although the recipes are not suited to all types of camping it does contain valuable information that is essential to all campers.

If you have read this book and would like to share your opinion please leave a comment or mention this article in the South Central USA forum. I would love to hear from you!
