Another of the companies that I met at the Outdoors show was Beyond the Beaten Track. Their stand showcased a range of wet and dry meals and also a flameless ration heater that really caught my eye, but more on that in a bit. At the show I tried a lamb hot-pot, from their wet meal range. I was really impressed, you wouldn’t know that you were eating “camping food” it tasted better than some of my own cooking! and much less effort than home cooking.
As mentioned I was really impressed by the Flameless Ration Heater, this is effectively a plastic sleeve which you insert the whole wet meal pouch into, add a little water (40ml) and it activates the chemicals within the ration heater to heat your meal. It gets very hot and gives you a piping hot meal within minutes. I think this is a great alternative to carrying dry rations and a stove, if you’re concerned about weight but want great flavour by removing the stove and carrying this you can afford a little more weight on wet rations.
Beyond the Beaten Track sell all their products online with free delivery on orders over £50, they also offer day ration packs, which contain 3 main meals and plenty of drinks and snacks to keep you going for 24 hrs (just check which ones come with a heater / require a stove).
What’s your favourite camping meal?
So that’s the range from Beyond the Beaten Track and their flameless heater, but I want to know what your camping food recommendations are, have you tried the range from Beyond the Beaten Track?
