Only because I saw the topic in the active zone again I've got a couple more "tips" for those kitchens and backwoods living...  I do have the Costco 6' tables, but those are 5' tables in my pics.  The important thing between the two are the legs.  The 6' tables are a curved short peg type of leg whereas the 5' tables have the long peg leg type.  This is very important to the ultimate process at hunting camp.  I cut some conduit pipes that just fit over the legs of the table and then raises my table up to about mid-stomach area vice below the waist.  I can't tell you the level of comfort this provides while quarter up meat and when butchering up meat back at home.  It is truly a life saver for the lower back not being bent over for those processes.  Once you do it you'll never be without them again.

OK, now the most important piece of kitchen gear that you can never be without, it can make for some pretty cranky dudes.  That little glass screw in thing in the top of your perk coffee pot.  Yep, we've broke one, not sure how but we sure a hell did, what a buzz kill that it.  Lucky for us the sporting goods store in town happened to have spares, and I happened to buy three of them. That shall never happen again!!!

great comments all the way around!! I picked up a wall tent to use for a kitchen!!! :IBCOOL: Its old, but in great shape. its stamped C&C #220 on it. the only website I found is a Civil War re-enactment site that sells tents just like this one, but I cant find mine on their page with the same dimensions. The size closest to this one was called a sutlery tent. It was a provision tent staffed by civilians I guess... anyway fast forward and now its a cook tent with provisions :).

It does not have a metal frame, its old school side poles and ridge pole. Does anyone have a place to get custom angle kits so I can make a frame from EMT?

thanks

For 4 of us, we had a 20x10 car port. Half was used for the kitchen, half for a sitting area, equipment, ect. 2-burner camp chef stove and a smaller two-burner, portable propane BBQ grill, set of three cheap Bi-Mart non-stick pans, tea kettle, 1 large 8 qt stock pot and 1 medium 4 qt stock pot, 2 ea 5 ft folding tables, folding camp kitchen, lamp on top of a propane can and extension with the stove plugged into the extension. FYI: the Bud Light in the picture was consumed by those more deplorable than I.

I figured the bud light was for cooking since its mostly water anyway but does not freeze at 32d. :)

It also is a theft deterrent as a guy can't carry a case of beer and a generator at the same time.

Thought so. Heard he moved to Idaho. Used to work with him. Bought his Hewescraft SeaRunner years ago. Small world.

Yeah just saw him end of May when he came to help rescue my buddy and I at Chewelah.
Moved to Rathdrum.

Getting excited about this upcoming season. Spent some time staring at my plain old Camp Chef 2 burner stove...
It needs some additions to maximize space and usage. I added wings on each side with some aluminum angle and homemade channel. Plywood tables. Under it, I used the existing holes in the legs to suspend a shelf. The wire is bent into the holes, goes down 8" then 12" under shelf, then back up the other side. It is attached to the shelf bottom with wire clips to keep the shelf in place.

I love these additions to the stove! I cant wait for this seasons meals!!!

Cool thread. After seeing those steaks next to the green beans I'm calling it a day and heading home for dinner.
