When it comes to camp cooking, one of the biggest decisions you'll have to make is whether to use a stove or an open flame. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages, and ultimately, the choice will depend on your personal preferences and the specific situation you find yourself in.

Propane stove If you're using an overlanding camp trailer like VORSHEER's XCT, you'll have the convenience of propane and a stove right at your fingertips. This can be a huge advantage, especially if you're camping in an area where fires are not allowed or if you simply prefer the ease of cooking with propane. The stove on the XCT is designed to be rugged and reliable, making it the perfect choice for outdoor cooking. Plus, the convenience of having a stove inside the trailer means you won't have to worry about setting up an outdoor kitchen or cooking area.

However, there's something undeniably appealing about cooking over an open flame. The aroma of wood smoke and the crackle of the fire can add an extra level of enjoyment to the camping experience. Plus, with a little bit of practice and some basic equipment, you can create some truly delicious meals over an open fire.

Of course, there are some downsides to cooking over an open flame as well. It can be more challenging to control the temperature of the fire, and it can be more difficult to cook more complex dishes that require precise temperatures or long cooking times. Plus, depending on the regulations in the area where you're camping, fires may not be allowed or may only be allowed in certain designated areas.

Ultimately, the choice between using a stove or an open flame will depend on your personal preferences and the specific circumstances of your camping trip. If you're looking for convenience and reliability, a stove like the one in VORSHEER's XCT can be a great choice. But if you're looking for a more rustic, back-to-nature experience, cooking over an open flame can be a lot of fun. Whichever option you choose, just be sure to follow all safety guidelines and regulations to ensure a safe and enjoyable camping experience!
