Just because you only have a campfire, grill, or even just the sun at your disposal, doesn’t mean you can’t create delicious dishes. For the Outdoor Cooking Contest show off what you cook and how when you’re outside and don’t have fancy kitchen appliances at hand.

Be one of the best cooks outside the kitchen and you could win a Dutch Oven, Sportsman’s Grill, or Camp Tripod from Lodge! Let your limitations be your advantage and cook up flavorful fares even Gordon Ramsay couldn’t complain about.

The Outdoor Cooking Contest 2017 is closed.
