Published: 22th November 2018

Are you planning a motorcycle camping adventure for you and your friends or family? Well, you need to know which kitchen gear to bring along in your trip. You need cooking gears that will help you make heartily and delicious meals on the road. However, must check them out to ensure that they are portable and can easily fit in your traveling bag.

Below are some ultra-portable cooking gears that are a must to make your motorcycle adventure successful.

Hiking Stove

Cooking around the campfire with your friends and family cannot get any better. For this, you need a campfire stove that will provide the source of heat. There are multiple camping stoves that are compact and easy to keep together. With a lightweight stove, you can prepare a full meal for your camping mates.

Pots and Pans

Pots and pans come in handy when you are planning to cook during your motorcycle trip. Pots and pans can be made from different materials including aluminium, titanium and stainless steel. Stainless steel is the heaviest, so it’s not an efficient option. Aluminium pots are more efficient, but they are the least durable. Titanium, on the other hand, is the lightest and most expensive.

Electric Burner

A burner is another useful cooking tool that can be your heat source. You can choose a simple fueled burner that you will use anywhere along the trip. However, if you will have access to outlets, you can opt for an electric burner. Compared to other burners, the electric burner is compact and makes cooking faster and easier. It is also a more efficient option since you can cook anything you want.

Small Grill

If you love a flame-broiled taste on your meals, then a grill is the ideal option for you. A table top grill can offer healthy home cooking options and can accommodate both small and large meals. Grills come in numerous sizes, and it is easy to find a size that perfectly fits at the back of your motorcycle. There are many small grills that are powered by electricity, charcoal and fuel.

Dry Foods

When on a motorcycle adventure, it can be expensive and difficult to find a place to eat. It is, therefore, wise to pack some dry foods like rice, oatmeal, noodles, dry soup and instant pasta as they are cheap and easy to prepare. Besides, quick-to-fix foods will save you gas. With just a burner and a pot, you can almost effortlessly make a meal out of these foods.

You should note though that various foods have varying degrees of preparation and effort. Hence, go for foods that will fill you up and are easiest to prepare. For instance, oatmeal is a good option for breakfast simply because it is easier to cook. Do not forget to carry coffee packets that will make you relax at the camping after a long day of riding. You can store the dry foods especially spices in a small Ziploc bag.


Do not forget to bring along some important kitchenware depending on your travel plans. This includes plates, cups, forks, knives, spoon and other cutlery. These items can be stored in a zipper cloth pouch in order to save space and keep them safe. A biodegradable soap, camp dishcloth and can opener are other things that will make your camping easy.

Wood Fire and Charcoal

A lighter, charcoal or wood fire should be included in your motorcycle camping cooking gear. When you have the right cookware, you can just light some coal or wood and have your meal in no time. Besides, this is a great way to keep warm during camping with your friends.

When it comes to camping, having the right cooking tools can make all the difference. When preparing for a motorcycle camping, it is crucial to consider factors such as size, weight and versatility. Pack the most important cooking gear first so that you can have the perfect dining experience far from home.
