Thumbs up

We are getting ready for our first outing and our stove does not look like it has seen much action...it is very clean all around it as well...my question: is there a splash\grease\splatter guard or something that folks use? We want to use the stove and would like to keep it and the area around it as clean as it is now.

thanks

Great question, I cook all the greasy splattering food outside on a small coleman stove...water and stuff that won't splatter gets cooked inside. I do this for two reasons...I'm OCD/weird about smelling up the trailer with some greasy bacon since its such a small place and #2 the summertime is just to darn warm to be cooking up something in the trailer and making it that much warmer.

I try to cook mostly outside also. I do have a splatter screen that I picked up at the doller store that goes over your frying pan. Not a perfect solution, but it does cut the splatter down. Should be able to pick something like that up at WalMart if you can't find one at a dollar store.

I aso cook outside either on a grill or colman 2 burner stove... If I 'must" use the stove I use a lid or a splatter screen like Lainy does.... I suppose you could make your back splatter guard out of something...
I do choose to put the bacon in the microwave tho....

'Turkey Bacon' is a great way to go if you want to cut down on mess (and fat intake).
It gives off hardly any grease or splatter when you cook it and leftovers keep really well in the fridge for BLT sandwiches later in the day

Rather than something that goes on a skillet or pan, how about something that goes around the pan? Like this:

Looks great, but I have yet to cook on the inside stove. That is what camping is all about for us...the great outdoors!

This past weekend my husband and I went camping with our next door neighbors - they have a tent, and ever since we brought home our U-haul last year, they've been begging us to go camping together. We chose a location about 26 miles from home, we reserved side by side sites on the lake...beautiful!

They went Thursday, we came Friday - so they were all set up by the time we got there.

OMG! In my life, I have never witnessed anyone's "camp kitchen" as large as the one they had nestled in the solid walls of their 12x12 First Up. 1 side of the First Up had solid walls, the other had the normal screen. They had 3 coleman stoves (2 old 'liquid' ones, 1 with the side burner and the grill combo) set up, a small Dorm fridge, things like paper towels, utencils, lighting hanging from bunge cords above the 'kitchen'. (everything was on a large table). Coolers were stored under the table/kitchen 'counter'. This was the most amazing set up I'd ever seen!! (My neighbor LOVES to cook!!)

We had strawberry pancakes topped with peach preserves for breakfast, choice of bacon or sausage and toast - Dinner consisted of steak over the fire, shrimp in garlic butter, fresh corn on the cob...and for dessert - strawberry shortcake with FRESH BAKED (in the dutch oven) biscuits. No way could either of these meals have been prepared indoors in our trailer!! The next morning was my turn to make breakfast, and I brought along things to make "Hashbrown casserole with eggs and ham" in the crockpot, which I put together the night before and let cook all night sitting on our front table in the trailer (didn't know if Racoons would eat casserole). The smell woke me up in the morning, which was great - but as we packed up to leave on Sunday, we still had breakfast 'smell' inside the trailer.

That just re-affirmed why we don't cook in our trailer. Yet we don't have quite the set up as my neighbor does - just a small coleman (liquid fuel) stove and a "camping kitchen" table we place in our fully screened First Up.

I should have taken photos of my neighbors 'camp' kitchen had I known we'd be talking about cooking inside vs out just a few days later on this site....it was really amazing!!!

We pre-cook food, like the turkey bacon, we pre-cooked our suasage or anything that is not hardy or safe at warmer temps, we also I pre-cook pancakes too as well as the french toast, crepes work really well and warm nicely, even fried potatoes...Plastic baggies are used for containers...Mostly we cook eggs/egg beaters and just warm foods we prepare a day before camping. We do cook/warm coffee/tea on the stove, We save water for outdoor showers rather than dish clean up. I think what we do do that may be different on long camps is use a pressure cooker. It was around before microwaves and crock pots and they still work very well being all in one pot dining, also it does not wipe out the battery or require a generator, the small stoves supply enough heat for a great meal.

I was thinking of the shield that Donna posted...the screen is pretty cool too...we lose power due to snow or wind 2 to 3 times a year (sometimes for days) so we might want to cook inside, otherwise...Yeah it wouldn't be camping w/o the old coleman stove... i like the idea of pre-cooking, especially breakfast...so will that wall carpet hold odors? what do you use to clean it?

These camp kitchens/chuck boxes look pretty cool, kinda pricey. 3 or 4 of these packed under a shelter with stoves and grills and you would think you were at a chili cook-off

Wow Lars!

Those ARE pretty amazing...watching the video on how it all comes apart for set up..and how compact the basic box is....Hmmm, might be worth the money not to have things in 3 different rubbermaid boxes like we have...Hmmm, "Honey, I found something I want for Christmas...forget about the Tennis Bracelet...I think I found something better!!!!!!!!!"

LOL

First - I want to go camping with Carolyn Patterson's friends. Wow!!!!! What a meal (or meals).

Second - Back to the subject of splatter shields. Wedgewood makes a stamped metal cover for their two and three burner stoves that swings up on hinges and has sides that fold out to make a larger version of a splatter guard, similar to the one Donna D. posted. In addition, it folds down to cover the stove when you are not cooking. You can buy one direct from Wedgewood, I think they are a part of Suburban, or from some of the larger RV outlets. I think they are about $20. I'll see if I can remember to get a picture of the one on my stove and post it (the picture, not the stove!).
