If creating a big mud kitchen seems like too much work… start with a simple stove top.
This one is light and easy to move around (on the deck, at the beach, out in the woods etc…) Add a few pots and pans and you can set up a little kitchen space just about anywhere!
Grab a chunk of wood. This one came from my dads saw mill shed.
Stencil on your burner circles (I traced around two different sized plates)
And here’s a ‘trick’. Take the coils off of an old stove at the dump and use them as stencils.
