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:
|The Blue Sky Kitchen is an interesting and innovative idea. Different configurations and levels of complexity put me in mind of Chinese puzzle boxes.|
|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|
|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.|
| Here’s the story of the T21 Kitchen Boxa fresh approach to an old standard patrol box with legs. This looks like a well-thought-out design; functional, not too big.
|The Kelty Basecamp Kitchen The folding culinary setup for your next outing. Plenty of surface area for preparation and a windshield ofr the stove. Zippered pantry.
| You may as well go for it and get a fully tricked-out Chuck Wagon.
