There’s really nothing that can compete with a meal cooked outdoors. I have fond memories of campouts and fishing trips where we sat around the fire and ate our freshly cooked food. Nowadays, there are several dozen different types of outdoor cooking, some of I’ve just recently heard of, like this “Cowboy Wok“, which is basically a standing open grill (also called a plow disk).

There are companies like Southwest Disk that specialize the cowboy wok, and other business that sell them as part of their inventory on Amazon. Wherever you get one, you’ll need to read up on the safety and use section of the guide prior to firing it up and trying it out.

Of course, after getting the cowboy wok, you’ll have to figure out what you want to make first — there’s a FaceBook group full of suggestions, complete with photos and videos of every kind of recipe you can imagine, from chicken pasta to antelope tacos.

If you’d rather rig a DIY version of a cowboy wok, there are plenty of YouTube tutorials to guide you, such as the one by Dave’s Homestead. Whether you buy one or make one (or alter one), you’ll be cooking up a tasty mess of home-cooked vittles in no time.
