What do you do, take the normal stuff from home or have actual camping stuff?

It looks as though we might be able to borrow a roof box and so will be able to actually cook and stay away for more than one night at a time!

So if I buy a set like this, can I use it on both a gas stove and an open fire? We're hoping to camp out down the woods again this year and fires and soooo much more fun than stoves!

Also, while I'm thinking about it, do the stoves (two hobs and a grill underneath) all run off the giant gas bottles? I'd really like a grill, but we've definitely not got enough space for anything big. (Not that I'm trying to justify spending money we really don't have just because I haven't spent any money for ages...)

Cheers!

That kind of set would be fine for a camping stove but I'd be reluctant to use it on an open fire, personally - I'd want something a bit sturdier. The outdoor centre I work for has a shop attached and I can PM you some links to the kind of thing we sell for cooking over an open fire if you want (I'd be happy to post them here but don't want the mods to think I'm promoting my business, etc).

Most camping stoves will run off of either propane or butane which come in the larger gas bottles, you just need to make sure you get the right kind of regulator for the type of gas you buy.

We bring pots from home. I keep thinking about buying camping ones but stop myself.

Thanks Sal, a link would be lovely please!

Disappointingly the pressure is off again for a while. Halfords can't fit the roof rack until next week so we've got to try and camp without the roof box again, so another trip without any real possibility of food. We've found a nice site where we can have open fires, but we don't even really have room for a cool box to take anything with us to cook on it! Ho hum.

Still, I live in hope!
