    Default What, if any, spices do u bring along?

    Camping food is, by its very nature, generally bland and repetitive. Do u guys bring any spices or other extras to liven up the chow?

    Back in the dark ages they had something called a 35mm camera, you know before digital. Well the black plastic film roll containers make great carriers for any and all spices. REI even sells replacement lids that allow you to seal the top and also use the top as a shaker opening. I have had a few of these for years and take them with black pepper, salt, garlic, and other spices. Relatively light weight, but like couscous it is worth it to me.

    I bring a rub mix, salt and pepper. I bring some hot sauce in a small plastic bottle. Like to bring some Parmesan cheese. Even on sheep hunts. Nothing like fresh meat on a stick. Of course I like to cook and enjoy that part of the experience.

    ****!!...Steve, you need to quit showing pics like that... its killin' me....lol By the way....I did get the my in-laws to bring up a bunch of "fiesta" fajita seasoning from Texas......

    For base camp...I bring it all, rubs, seasonings, sauces, onions and potatoes. For mobile spike camps, a very small/tiny container of Canadian Steak seasoning...( not just for sheep, moose or bou...but its good on ptarmigan, pika, and marmot)

    A small bottle of Season All or Johnny's Seasoning, are good to add to the pack or food locker. A little flour to dredge in and some butter to fry in. I mix the dry flour and seasoning salt together, dip meat in egg, then cover with the dry mix and then cook in the melted butter. You can sub Panco for the flour if available. This works on fish or red meat.

    Depends on the camp. If I'm going mobile it's usually just salt, pepper and hot sauce. Used to take Tabasco as it offered more burn for the buck, but as I've aged a bit Tabasco doesn't sit well in my innards as it used to. Nowadays I opt for Trappy's Red Devil, Bull Brand or Lousiana hot sauces or Frank's. Permanent base camps get a little more elaborate.
    Now what ?

    Grabbing stuff at fast food joints is an easy move. Some other condiments can be found below. For spices, I take plenty, largely what is mentioned before me. I put them in small 1-2 ounce nalgene bottles I found on Campmor years ago. I store them in a cheap $3 shaving bag from Walmart. In that kit I also keep powdered oil, called powdered shortening on the site Harvest Foodworks (Canadian) that sells it.

    To spice up questionable caribou meat I bring Red Roboin spice/salt. It goes on everything.
