Camp Kitchen and Chuck Box 101 Your chuckbox gets you out where the cool things live. Every camp kitchen needs a good chuck box. It should both store the majority of your camping checklist and set up quickly to give you table space for cooking cleaning and food preparation. Chuck box basics. (Harder than you might think!) The absolute minimum requirement for a chuck box, patrol box or grub box is that it store your camp kitchen. So it’s a place to keep your many varied camp kitchen items. This saves you from scrounging around your home kitchen for place settings, cooking utensils, spices and such every time you want to go camping. In the strictest sense a cardboard box could, in effect, be a chuck box. (Many people do that.) Also, nowadays there are many large, varied and inexpensive plastic containers that can serve the same function and have the added features of seal, easy stacking and they are water proof. However, if you go camping much at all, you soon learn that it’s not enough just to have everything. You also need work surfaces for cooking cleaning and food preparation. Camping table space is at a premium when you are doing outdoor cooking! Thus a good chuck box will also setup to give you work surfaces and utility features for your camp kitchen. As a matter of example, take a quick moment and look at your home kitchen. You might first notice there are a lot of drawers and cupboards. That’s because cooking requires a lot of stuff. Then you’ll probably see there’s a lot of counter space. That’s because you need easy to clean places to work with all that stuff. Then you may see things like the sink, spice rack, cup hooks, paper towel holder an so forth. These utility features put things at your finger tips because, when cooking, you have a lot of things to do in an often very limited period of time. Food burns quick! What all this really means is that once you have a well outfitted chuck box your once lengthy camping checklist turns into only a few items with the grub box being one of them, so the ‘getting ready to go’ camping hassle is gone forever. And you won’t forget any key items anymore because things are always there in your grub box just waiting for you. Once in the field you find the work surfaces and utility features are an absolute delight. So the real bottom line is you go camping more often! Chuck box design and construction notes. Also, IT MUST BE PORTABLE! In fact, one person should be able to transport it, in it’s fully loaded state, without strain. This is the mistake almost all chuck box builders and even most wood chuck box manufactures make. They use materials like 1/2″ plywood which can weight around 50 lbs a sheet. Honestly, even 1/4 baltic birch is too heavy as it weighs 28 lbs a sheet. The heaviest product we manufacture weighs 25 lbs total in it’s empty state. That should be your weight rule because you know it can be done. Additionally, vibration from roadways ( especially washboard dirt roads ) tends to loosen the mounting screws used for hinges and other metal hardware. This can happen very quickly. Thus, chuck boxes that have been designed by ‘real campers’ ( those who camp more than, say, ten times per year ) tend to not use metal hardware at all. Also, be careful of things that ‘look’ like they would be cool to have. For example, a lantern hung over the cooking and preparation area may ‘look’ like a good idea but those of us that really camp have learned this also attracts bugs. This, almost certainly, will lead to an unwanted crunch in your food. 😉 Attachable legs are usually a very bad idea because they either require a great deal of effort ( time ) to attach and/or form a wobbly support system. A stand is a much more quick and stable means of achieving the right height. How quickly a chuck box sets up is a critical issue. There are many other design and construction concerns that buyers should scrutinize and builders should consider. We have published a book that sums up the factors to be considered when building and even buying a chuck box. How to Design, Build and Outfit Your Own Camp Kitchen. Other chuck box uses. Remember also, your camping equipment should be at the center of your survival plan. Give me my camping gear and I can survive, with a large degree of comfort, almost anywhere, for an extended period of time. And anytime you need a portable outdoor kitchen, be it for tailgating, picnicking, or just barbecuing out back, you’ll have everything you need in your camping kitchen box. Note: Chuck and grub are cowboy type terms for food. A chuck box, grub box, camp box, and patrol box are all the same thing. BSK Home BSK Products DIY Chuck Boxes Camping Tips

Testimonials I love cooking with My Camp Kitchen. I have all that I need right there. Cooking outdoors is much more enjoyable than in our trailer. RichardColorado For a beautiful cooking experience, the artfulness and craftsmanship of the Summit WOWS. It feeds the soul. SusanColorado We are so pleased with the custom table ! When my husband opened it and put it together, he said he wanted to use it as a standing desk in his office!! I am just so pleased to have such a beautifully designed and high-quality camp kitchen! I value these qualities in my NON-camping life … so it was wonderful to find that you were making something like this as most of the camping stuff out there is just awful!!! It has also been a great pleasure to work with you all. Thank you for all that you do! Alison RichardsSenior Editor, Science & FoodNPRWashington, DC The Camp Kitchen is just absolutely perfect and fits exactly how we wanted it to in our four-wheel pop-up camper. It is really well-thought-out, and I’m SO glad I didn’t try to build a DIY as I was previously planning. You have put a lot of camping experience into every little detail. And it is built for an air drop! It’s funny how excited my wife and I are about The Outdoorsman kitchen box, considering we have tens of thousands of dollars tied up in all sorts of technical outdoor gear. Your camp kitchen is truly worth every penny. Congrats on a classic. Brooks MontgomeryOwnerHart-Montgomery Outdoor SalesBozeman, MT I want to tell you how delighted I am with the camp kitchen. We went camping this past weekend and found cooking to be easy and storing the gear convenient. Thank you also for the towels, coffee filters, and wine glasses. We used these as well. I will recommend this unit to everyone I know who camps. Teresa TheesfeldHappy camper Nothing competes with camping. There is no remote-control camping. So when you get a kid out there making a fire, prepping foil dinners, roasting marshmallows, playing silly campfire games, and walking around in the dark with a flashlight, he is thrilled in a way that cannot be duplicated by technology. Go, Dad!!!! Analisa MaciasAvid camper and daughter of the Snogrens We are enjoying our bar—getting so many compliments and looks! It is great.… Thank you!! Anna DulcichHappy camper Wow! Awesome! Really Cool! That’s the impression I have with The Outdoorsman. Very well-constructed, and I think it will work perfectly for our Scouting needs. Easy to set up and surprisingly light. Thanks so much. Brian JasperScoutmasterMarysville, OH Just finished putting together your kit, and I really enjoyed the project. Ed WatsonHappy camper My Camp Kitchen was the central spot for all the food and drink as everyone found it to be a great camping asset. It was at a comfortable height for preparation, and all the tools I needed were right there in easy reach. My Camp Kitchen is a wonderful product that I will continue to enjoy and tell everyone about. Bill and Jodi H.Colorado Everything worked just great. You can see how much I have stored in the box—literally everything I need for cooking/preparation of food. The couple I went camping with were really taken with the unit—thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread! Dave WeedHappy camper You make an awesome product! … Arrived home today to My Camp Kitchen waiting on my porch. Couldn’t wait to open it up and see the new improvements. I could not be happier!! The new legs are fantastic!! And having the extensions be able to stay with the box and not have to tote separate is just the ticket. We just placed our three kids’ names in a hat and drew the lucky winner of our old unit. Our oldest daughter won and promised to share with the other two and keep it in the family always. Thanks again for making a great quality product that we can be proud to pass on. Scott HallHappy CamperGrand Rapids, MI We love our Camp Kitchens! Our old patrol boxes were built from plans. They were very heavy, and the legs were hard to assemble. Our Camp Kitchens were easy and fun for a group of Scouts to put together. The instructions were easy to follow, and the parts were well-organized. Everything fit together perfectly. The Camp Kitchens are well-designed and much easier for our Scouts to carry. All of our necessities fit neatly inside. In addition, set-up is easy when we arrive at camp. Thanks, My Camp Kitchen! Scott DoryScoutmaster First of all, let me say I LOVE what I see and hear from your products. We are a Scouter family with two boys 13 and 11 active in our LDS Scout troop and a secondary traditional troop here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Raoul CasaresScout fatherPleasanton, CA I just received my Mini Chef last Friday, and it’s terrific. And it was like Christmas finding the extras inside! A really nice touch. Thank you.
