Blog Post Test 5

It’s easy to lose track of time when we’re having a good time. That’s why when we’re camping, we usually don’t get dinner together until after the sun goes down! Cooking in the dark can definitely be a challenge, however with the right equipment and the right recipe you can still enjoy a great meal that’s quick to prepare. For this recipe, we’re making steak tacos with grilled corn salsa.

To reduce the amount of cookware, we used BioLite’s FirePit. If you don’t want to clean a bunch of pots and pans at the end of the night, grilling is a great option. Getting a fire started and burning it down to usable embers can take up to an hour, so we opt to use lump charcoal instead. It’s hot and ready to cook over within 15 minutes, which can mean the difference between serving dinner at 7 pm rather than 8 pm.

Once the final bit of light fades from the sky, we switched on our BioLite HeadLamps. While lanterns and string lights are nice for setting the mood, nothing beats the directional light of a headlamp when cooking. Especially when you’re doing knife work, having ample lighting right where you need it key. To get our salsa started while the grill heats up, we chopped up cherry tomatoes, red onion, and a jalapeño.
