The most careful don't even cook in camp.

I once got a bollocking off a warden in the Rockies. A group of us had a big BBQ and I deliberately poured some excess fat off my meet, she went ballistic "Don't do that it will encourage the bears to come here". She said a mountain lion had run off with a kid not long before.  I wasn't easy in my tent after that.

 :008: I could see that.
We sorta have to classes of bears (I'm no bear expert by-the-way).
You have your campground bears who are lazy by nature and have been conditioned to find food in campgrounds - and they are more than happy to rip up the place looking for it.
And then you have those wild land, big bears who look at most things edible as potentially the next meal.

Happily the most terrifying food problem I've ever has was ants.
Just damn happy to be here...
