Camping Recipes, The Lowdown

We eat to live, not live to eat. Well.. sometimes here in the marketing department we twist the phrase a bit. Hello, we love our carbs and can’t deny a diet Coke every so often. Plus, who doesn’t REALLY want a donut on a Friday after a busy as a bee week? Come on, don’t deny it. WE ALL DO!

Anyways, back to the meat and potatoes of this notion (yes, a food phrase was needed) we’re excited to share what our tastebuds have been craving and what we are on the verge of drooling for. What does that entail? We’re promoting some recipes that were found either on Pinterst, dusted out of our cupboards, passed down from Grandma, or a savory dish we whipped up from the creative imagination. If you have any dishes that are drool worthy, please send them onto us! We would love to test them out ourselves!

Can you tell we have a sweet tooth? Yep, these cookie dough frosting cupcakes are EXACTLY what we want right now! See here!

We’re all about the savory dishes, too! Good day, carbs! We fancy you !

Sour is right up our alley, too! Come the sizzling Duluth summers, these will be a must-have on a daily rotation!

This will be slurped down plenty of times here at Duluth Pack – can guarantee that. Plus, energy? Booyah!

Even though we are Northerners, we are oh so festive when it comes to Taco Tuesdays! Get in my belly, home-made Crunch Wrap Supreme ! Healthiest? No way, Jose. But, when you’re running around work all day and who cares (that’s how it goes, right?) .

Stomach rumbling now? Ours are! We’re all about, ‘sharing is caring’ here at Duluth Pack. If you have something that needs to be in the limelight, tell us! We’re becoming hungry, hungry hippos over here!

The Lowdown


May 11, 2015

Get ready for a stomach growl, because delicious looking grub is coming your way!

Tis the season where barbecuing, summer grilling, and over the bonfire meals are prepared, cooked and then gobbled down. Needless to say, it’s our absolute favorite time of year! Spicy, salty, sweet, sour and a twist of savory are all found in this post. Whether it’s finger linkin’, grab and go, simmer over the fire, or just plain ole’ good looking morsels, we’re all over it! Thanks to the ease and instant accessibility of Pinterest (follow us by hitting THIS link) , anyone can become the new up and coming Betty Crocker. Check out some of our “need to try before we die” meals below.


We’re starting off with a bang! As in, Dynamite Bang Bang Shrimp, folks! Wow-ee THIS recipe has seriously left my stomach craving and my tastebuds eager to gobble down this dish. If you’re not a fan of seafood or allergic, you can easily substitute chicken into the meal. This recipe knocks it out of the park, no questions asked.


This photo makes use just think, “Hello there, carbs.”. The most All-American meal (minus hot dogs and burgers of course) but in a close third place is the notorious grilled cheese sandwich. It just takes you back to middle school days, doesn’t it? The ooey gooey filling of melted cheese squashed in-between two perfectly crisp pieces of bread – it’s like heaven on a plate. THIS dish pushes us to step up the grilled cheese game and incorporate a few more ingredients that will make the sandwich go from ‘yum’ to ‘give me now!’ kind of attitude. Now all we need is a cup of tomato soup and we are good to go.


A food related blog post is nothing without a hint of sweet sugary goodness in the mix. Please note, THESE cupcakes are watermelon inspired. So, we take it that they count as a serving of fruit, too (kidding – kind of) .


A scrumptious salty solution is here! The combination of Snickers and salty – that was the ticket to convince us to try THIS in a split second. Crunchy goodness is always a yes in our book.


Veggies are tasty, friends. Especially when they are topped with sour cream and turned into fritters. Wa-la, wa-la! THESE suckers are fool-proof to make are and incredibly delectable. Give your side dishes a zip and try them for your next din. Ps: When you do, please feel free to invite the Duluth Pack clan.


CHILI. CHEESE. FRIES. FIRE. Did we mention cheese? Yes, THESE babies are such a treat, especially when out in the brush. Some of our team has made these and swears they hit the spot when you’re craving a meal that maybe isn’t oh so healthy, but is darn good cookin’.

You all need some supplies to help with your prepping and food festivities. Check out our entire spread of cooking supplies (available in store and ONLINE ) that helps make your dinner a breeze. Maybe none of these recipes don’t intrigue you. Not a problem! Check out Duluth Pack’s minimal step meals, especially if you’re heading into the woods or on the water – HERE .

Have any of you tried or concocted these recipes before? We’d love to hear your opinions! Also, if you have a recipe that is share worthy, please feel free to email us at: [email protected] We will test them out and write another blog on our findings!

Dutch Oven Cooking Demonstration with Recipe!

December 18, 2012

This past weekend at the Duluth Pack flagship store in Duluth, MN we wanted to create an experience that people could come and watch and then sample some interesting prepared items made in Lodge Dutch ovens, that you can make at either the campsite or in your kitchen. As you begin your adventure of cooking with Lodge Logic cast iron, hopefully you will remember the fun we had.

Dutch oven cooking can be practiced at home on the back porch and then mastered at the campsite, creating a menu of items besides hotdogs and hamburgers.  You’ll be able to create meals, desserts and snacks that your family and friends will wonder what cooking class you took to be so good! We would like to share with you one of our most popular recipes!
