Wilderness Bushcraft Cooking & a Favorite Recipe


Spending time outside and enjoying nature is something we all truly appreciate.


Many of us do this as a serious hobby, to relieve stress, to spend time alone or with family and friends. We look forward to it. We sometimes plan trips to go on big adventures in the outdoors. We even enjoy buying our favorite gear to make the most of it.


But when you get out there and open a can of soup or boil some ramen noodles, it can really diminish the whole ‘experience’.


Why not plan to cook some fun forest foods? It’s not as hard as you think and so rewarding.


A few things to think about...

  • Pack according to the schedule of your adventure

  • Think about food weight, eat the heavy stuff first if having multiple meals

  • Have a mix of one elaborate fun dish and other low effort foods

  • Tortillas are easy to carry and always good to put anything in

  • Pre-clean, pre-cut veggies and meats as needed

  • Marinated and rubbed meats travel better (and will be tasty even if you accidentally over-cook it)

  • If you’re doing any baking, use the coals after your main fired foods are cooked for more even lower heat

  • Wild edibles are great to incorporate


What do I bring?

  • Morakniv Garberg Knife

  • A carved wood spoon (or you can carve one while the fire burns!)

  • Mini spice kit (if you want to)

  • Fire starting kit (here's a blog about this)

  • Favorite portable stove (mine is the Firebox)

  • A pan, or fire grate (or both depending on the menu)

  • Something to boil water in

Here’s one of my favorite recipes…


Primal Black Coffee Rubbed Meat & Veggie Skewers


The Primal Black Coffee Rub:

(ingredient amounts are for per pound of meat)

  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ground dark roast coffee

  • 2 tsp. coarse salt

  • 2 tsp. fresh ground coarse black pepper

  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1 tsp. onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

  • 1/2 tsp. coriander

  • 1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper


Mix all ingredients well, rub on your favorite meat.

Let meat sit 1 hour before grilling. If you want to skewer it with veggies, I like to cut it in big chunks and add mushrooms and red peppers.


End it with some good fresh brew coffee!
