Chuck Boxes

Have you seen out my outdoor gear guide?


Chuck boxes make cooking in camp a lot more pleasant. Call them patrol boxes, field kitchens, or chuck boxes they all store cooking gear.  Some are ingeniously gadgety; here’s a sampling from the web:

Grubby The Blue Sky Kitchen is an interesting and innovative idea. Different configurations and levels of complexity put me in mind of Chinese puzzle boxes.
Camptable This camp table setup get’s some excellent reviews. It folds up into a fairly compact package for easy transport. Fast set-up and take down. Pantry bag is roomy with two shelves. Unclip the pantry at night and put it in the car to keep food secure from animals. Available from REI
Kiset6 This Aussie Drifta is a good design with lots of work space. An ingenious  kitchen that  packs into its own box. The side tables look especially useful.
