Best fire pit friendly food recipes

Camping for days can be an exciting and adventurous venture for families, groups, and friends. However, you will need to prepare your food menu with suitable dishes which can be easily and quickly made over the fire pit. Some people have found certain foods best for each of the camping days – like cinnamon rolls, chicken rolls, dutch oven pizza and mini cakes for the first day; potatoes & sausages, pastrami sandwiches, Frito pie and dutch oven cakes for the second day. On the third day, you can have oatmeal, peanut butter, jelly stuffed peppers and s’mores. Blueberry cakes, hot dog, and baked apples could be nice on the fourth day. For the fifth day, you can make pancakes, sloppy Joes, and chili potatoes. Oatmeal sandwiches, beans, and franks can be taken on the sixth day; while on the last day you can take muffins and spaghetti together with left-over. Below are a few fire pit foods and their recipe.

Cinnamon Rolls

Have your Cinnamon rolls ready with these simple steps. Get a clean stick; scrape with a knife to bring out a clean surface. Open the can of cinnamon rolls and unwrap the rolls around the stick. Do this carefully and properly so that it doesn’t fall off the stick. Then place the stick over the fire pit. You can twist or spin the stick slowly to aid even cooking of the rolls. For best results, cook the rolls over coals as open flames would just burn the rolls. Cooking can take 5-10 minutes depending on the thickness of the rolls.


To make classic s’mores on pit fire, it’s simple! Get a roasting stick and put the classic s’mores together, marshmallow and roast to your taste over the fire pit. Serve with a piece of chocolate between two graham crackers.
