The Best Camping Meals on the Blackstone

Are you looking for the best camping meals on the Blackstone? I have put together a list of some of my favorite easy Blackstone recipes for camping that you are going to love! 

I’m going to be honest, I was pretty hesitant to buy the Blackstone. I thought it was just a fad thing and honestly, we have a small propane grill for camping already and 2 BBQs for home. Why did we need another outdoor grill? My husband really wanted it though and who am I to say no to more days of me not cooking?! He does 100% of the outdoor cooking for our family. It’s a dad thing, right? So I gave in and let me tell you, this was a purchase that I do not regret. I love it and we no longer bring our small grill camping with us because this thing is awesome! 

Best Camping Meals on the Blackstone

Some of these Blackstone camping recipes can be whipped up and cooked at camp and some are better suited for prepping ahead of time. I happen to love doing most of the meal prep before we head out for camp as it is so much less work at home since you can easily clean up while in your own kitchen.

Whether you decide to prep your favorite recipes at home or if you bring along the ingredients to make them at the campsite, you will certainly be enjoying a delicious meal on your next camping adventure. 

Blackstone Chicken Fajitas

These Blackstone Chicken Fajitas are hands down my favorite meal to cook on the blackstone. This easy meal is packed full of tender, flavorful chicken breasts or chicken thighs or breasts and colorful bell peppers, I prep them in advance of every single camping trip and they are always a hit. One of our last camping trips was with 4 other families so I quadrupled the recipe and everyone was raving about dinner! They are easy to prepare, easy to cook and perfect for camping. 

Don’t forget to bring along some sour cream, salsa and your favorite hot sauce to add some extra yumminess!

Cheesy Bacon Hash Browns

These Cheesy Bacon Hash Browns are going to taste amazing while sitting around the campfire! The burst of flavors come together to make your mouth really happy. Trust me on this one, you are going to want to pack up the ingredients to make this recipe. 

Grilled Trout

Will you be fishing on your camping trip? If you said yes, here is a great recipe for you! This grilled trout can be made with any grill type, but I happened to love it on the Blackstone. It turns out perfectly! 

Vegan Fajitas

We already talked about Blackstone Chicken Fajitas, but I don’t want to forget about my friends who eat vegan! These Vegan Fajitas are going to blow your mind and are easy to make while camping.  

Cajun Steak Quesadillas

These cajun steak quesadillas are going to make you quite popular at the campground! You better get used to your camping neighbor making their way over to your campsite to see what that amazing smell is. 

Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burger

Another great recipe for my vegan friends! This Grilled Portobello Mushroom burger can easily be made on the Blackstone with minimal prep work before camping. I love to serve this with some french fries and grilled green beans on the side.

French Toast

French Toast on the Blackstone is much easier than you may think! Oh, and it tastes amazing!! While I prefer a protein packed breakfast myself, my middle child absolutely loves french toast and would eat it every day if he could so I love to surprise him with it sometimes at camp. 

Blackstone Griddle Pizza

Pizza while camping?! YES!! Blackstone griddle pizza recipe is crispy and delicious. Everyone can personalize their pizza for a fun outdoor pizza night.

Chicken Philly Cheesesteak

Boring sandwiches no more! This Chicken Philly Cheesesteaks Recipe is loaded with tender chicken, sautéed onions and peppers and lots of gooey cheese. Everything is packed into a hoagie roll for a tasty meal. 


If you are looking for super easy recipes for breakfast, pancakes should definitely be your go to! While I am not linking to a specific recipe here, we always have at least one pancake breakfast while camping. It’s super easy! When I am home I always make scratch made pancakes, but for camping pancakes I typically buy a box of pancake mix, the type that only requires you add water. I then mix up the batter and store it in a pancake batter dispenser in our cooler. All we have to do is heat up the Blackstone in the morning and pancakes are ready to be made! 

Eggs and Bacon

Okay, here’s another one without a specific recipe, but we LOVE making bacon and eggs on the Blackstone. It’s such an easy way to make this breakfast favorite. Just watch out for that bacon grease!

These are hands down the best recipes that I have tried so far on our tabletop griddle. I cannot wait to try more during our upcoming camping adventures this summer!

Which Grill Do You Need for the Best Camping Meals on the Blackstone?

While you can use any flat top propane griddle for these awesome Blackstone camping recipes, I have found that the 22 inch Blackstone is perfect for us, honestly any of the different sizes of Blackstone Grills will work for these recipes. It’s easy to pack up and take on the road with us, but it offers plenty of room to make lots of delicious food for the whole family on our camping trips. Perfect whether it’s just our family camping or if we are camping with others. If you have a large family, you might consider purchasing a larger grill.

Do you Need Other Blackstone Products?

While some other Blackstone products out there are very helpful (like their grill tools and grill seasoner), you can use any grill safe accessories that you have. You definteily need to use metal tools, not plastic. My favorite things to have on hand for camping cooking on the Blackstone grill is the large sized spatulas as well as the griddle scraper! These all make cooking and cleaning up easier to do.

I also highly recommend that you do purchase a Blackstone Carry Bag. It is definitely the best way to transport the flat top griddle as it is a bit awkward to carry on its own.

We bought our stove at Walmart, but there is no right place to purchase yours. You can find it on Amazon or many other big box retailers.

What Camping Staples Should You Keep On Hand to Make The Best Blackstone Griddle Recipes?

Here is the list of food staples we always take camping with us.

  • Olive oil (it may not be required for all recipes, but we add a thin coat of oil to the griddle before each cooking session)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Soy Sauce
  • Hot Sauce
  • Butter
  • Seasoning Mixes (this changes with the season as we tend to change up our what our favorites are all the time)
  • Hot dogs (I have kids, hot dogs are a must for camping meals for us). Believe it or not, you can cook them on the griddle.

Of course we bring other things along with us, but these are the staples that we almost always use on our favorite Blackstone recipes.
