When camping with a larger group, it is sometimes difficult to come up with ideas of what to cook for dinner. A lot of camping recipes sound fantastic but are only practical for smaller groups or families of 2-3 people. If you are going camping with a larger group or just love cooking, then you have come to the right place.

To help you out we have put together 3 Camping BBQ Recipes for Large Groups, that you can try out on your summer camping trip. We love camping with friends and family as it’s fun to share experiences and adventures with those closest to you! We know camping is not just for the hardcore or nostalgic. It is tough when you have kids. We got 'em, too! Our food is catered for them as well! We want to share the joy of the outdoors with everyone and make it easier for anyone to experience the joys of camping.

If you have space to take a firepit with you on your camping trip, then check out our Crua Fire Pit. There isn’t a person in the world that doesn’t like gazing into a fire while camping. The problem is fires can quickly become out of control. But not with the Crua firepit; we aim to leave no mess behind.  We created the firepit to help minimize the impact on nature by containing your fire safely. We use a reliable stainless-steel design to ensure the fire always stays under control. The flat-pack design makes your life easier when transporting the firepit to your camping location. What makes this firepit unique is the slot together design; you don’t need any tools to put it together.

We understand that cooking over a campfire is a difficult task, so we designed the firepit with that in mind. It comes with a flat panel at the top; big enough to hold two small pans of your choosing. It even features grill-like slots so you can get the BBQ feeling running through your food.  Whether you’re looking to contain a fire for your next camping trip or your backyard, this firepit offers you everything you need to get cooking.
