Summer is getting in full swing with most schools ending last week and the temperatures climbing higher every day. No summer in Wisconsin would be complete without camping, which of course means testing your cooking skills over a campfire. Cooking over an open flame can be a fun challenge, but is also something to do cautiously. Follow these tips to keep your family and your memories safe.
- The heat for cooking will come from the coals, not from the flame itself. This is especially important to remember if you are cooking meat; make sure to cook your meat thoroughly before consuming.
- Keep children and pets away from the fire and cooking area. Camping is a time for fun and games, but you should always keep an eye on where your kids and pets are running or playing. Accidents can happen within just a few moments so it is vital that you pay attention to your surroundings.
- Have a fire extinguisher or other materials to put out fires nearby. You should also check this Web site to learn how to safely build, maintain, and extinguish your campfire. Only burn materials that are safe and legal to burn.
Cooking over a campfire is a great way to test out your culinary skills. Try out new recipes and challenge yourself—you may be surprised at the tasty concoctions you come up with! Always remember that it is important to protect your camper or RV with Wisconsin recreational vehicle insurance. Contact us today to learn more before you head out to camp this weekend.
