Food just tastes better out in the wilderness than anywhere else and a camping food list ensures that you'll be able to quench any hankering that comes up out there.

We often use the BBQ to roast a chicken or put a roast on to cook slowly while we visit with friends in neighboring campsites, we mosey back and forth keeping an eye on supper while playing Bocce ball, Mexican Train or the Washer Game.
