This is my camp kitchen. It has to be pre- 1840’s. It’s made from poplar and pine. I needed to have a place to store my cast iron while camping. Most other re-enactors have a rack by the fire pit. But that leaves the pans out in the elements. My way they are under the table which is under the dinning fly ( a tarp that covers your dinning area).

You’re going to need a big mule to pack that to rendezvous.. Makes me want to clean my Hawken and watch Jeremiah Johnson one more time! I’m going deer hunting tomorrow, I think I’ll take my Hawken and leave my modern rifle at home.

Thats pretty awsome! So I’m thinking you modeled it after an old style?

Do you do this type of camping? It seems like it would be pretty fun, especially if wagons and such were used!

The entire kitchen breaks down. so it’s easy to pack and unload. The entire set up takes about 10 mins.
Sailor, Yes I do this kind of camping. I am going to Alafia Florida in Jan. to camp for ten days. And sometimes there are wagons and such. I am whats known as a Booshway. That is a person who heads up a Rendezvous camping event. I was elected to the Booshway position for the Eastern Primative Rendezvous 2012. I am working on using wagons, both horse and goat drawn.

Nice set up, you have there. Nothing better than cast iron to cook in.Looks like that oven must be a 14 or 16. Bad case of (CASTIRONITIS) you have. Only cure is more iron.
