What is the best /out/ meal and why is it cup noodles? >post pics of your cooking setups and meals
I fucking hate cooking outside, there is no way to have something of a reasonable weight and easy to prepare and clean up that is actually healthyI would rather starve myself than have to eat rice sides one more timeShould I just say fuck it and start carrying the extra weight of real food?
>>2104729I guess you've never heard of dehydrated backpacking meals?
Love cooking outdoors even when it's meme tier stuff like pasta sides
>>2104591I use a msr windburner to boil water for hot drinks and rehydrate food.Also have a trangia and wood gas stove with ti cookware for areas I can have fires in.
>>2104735Comfy looking billy. Been thinking about grabbing that woods 4 pack but it seems like a bit much to carry for just myself.
>>2104591Outdoor soup is best soup
>>2104591Mix those with Idaho instant potatoes babey
How are people content with eating slop?
>>2104735Protip: corned beefAdd to pasta sides mushroom stroganoff or to dehydrated hash browns or to instant mashed potatoes.
>>2104758You sacrifice a variety of texture for weight savings when you intend to hike a very long way.
>>2104747This is true.
>>2104729>chopped potatoes and carrots>frozen beef stew chunkscongrats you've got yourself a healthy soup. the only issue is keeping the meat frozen, so you can only eat it on day 1.
>>2104591Peach cobbler in Dutch oven is god tier
Based Appalachia OP.I said this in another thread but its simple: boil 500ml water, put ramen noodles in it until soft. In large freezer bag put an entire package of instant mashed potatoes and the ramen spice.Pour in the noodles and mush the bag with hands to mix.Viola, a 1400kcal ramenbomb that cost $1.50 and you don't have to clean your pot. eat one of these every night on trail and it knocks me the fuck out.
>>2104731Having eaten dehydrated food for weeks at a time, those get old real quick and it does have a reputation for causing people to get upset stomach. A few things I've picked up on in recent years:If you wanna go the Dehydrated route, I highly recommend eating a different food every night and try to limit it to being just a dinner option most days. Oatmeal, granola and grits are great breakfast options. Bread and tortillas can go a long way towards making the dehydrated meals a million times more enjoyable.I've stopped paying attention to food weight personally, The first day out I always bring a frozen steak or bratwurst with and some pre-prepped asparagus in a ziploc bag for the first dinner than I carry some frozen breakfast sausage or liver mush and eat it with grits and toast the first breakfast.Protip: Farm fresh eggs can last up to a month as long as they're never refrigerated and are easier to find locally than you'd think. Also, a salt/pepper/spice shaker and a stick of unsalted butter should be in every Backpacker's food arsenal.
>>2104591I made steaks with my gf last trip i took, i tried searing in a cast iron but they were RAW in the middle. I cooked em over the flame and they came out p decent, gf was very supportive, also made some BOMB fuckin potatoes
>>2104591>Cup noodles>When way better ramen exists.
>>2106977True that. Also those styrofoam cup are a no go for me. I have a six egg holder thing that I take it doesn’t need to be chilled and you just crack an egg in your Japanese soup like they do in japan
>>2107025what is it? they look too smooth to be potatoes almost like they're pearl onions or gnocchi, but maybe it's just the lightingnext time i go car camping or not too deep innawoods, i'm gonna do some kind of upgraded pork and beans where there's decent quality pork sausages served with a standard can of white beans in tomato sauce (e.g. Heinz, Showboat, Van Camp's) which usually only contain a tiny cube of porkand then maybe some eggs or something with it, since that's looking pretty sexy
>>2107064They look like vacuum packed gnocchi
>>2107079Gnochi is goat. Lil flour, some ghee (I smoke mine because i've got a smoker, adds some nice flavor) and it's a great meal. Tomato sauce, cheese, meat, etc. can all be added if you have it.
Where are my vegetarian bros? Please share your ways
>>2105495Skip the butter and carry a small plastic container of cold pressed olive oil.
>>2107098They all starved to death from Fog Brain. Sorry m8, you’re the only one left.
>>2104591When I'm not packing for comfort, I pack canned soupI've never understood the fascination with MREs outside of military/GTFO applications.Cans are reusable instead of being a bunch of disposable plastic shit.Yeah they're a lot heavier, but consistently hardier meals and don't give you the shits. Plus, you boil it in the can itself.
>>2107116MRE’s are pretty tasty and calorie dense. The fact that I can either warm the main meal pouch or eat cold is a nice option. The downside is that they are quite bulky because everything is individually wrapped and at times some small items inside are redundant.
>>2107064Potatoes, mushroom, garlic, cheese. And some butter.
>>2104729>I would rather starve myself than have to eat rice sides one more timetake the ramen pill, knorr rice sides are way too salty for mewith the right ramen + vegetables + sliced thin spam you can make it taste like a real restaurant meal
>>2108301Another underrated thing for ramen is peanut butter. You mix that in there and you got protein and some nice flavor.t. MRE ratfucking pro
Backyard grilling on the primus
>>2107098Ignore the trolls. I recently bought a dehydrator and have turned to making my own pasta dishes and a veggie shephard's pie. For the former, I break apart spaghetti noodles, cook, then dehydrate. Spread the tomato sauce across a Teflon sheet in the dehydrator, dry, then blend into a powder, boil mushrooms and red and green bell peppers, dehydrate. You don't want any oil in your recipe otherwise it'll never dry out. When I combine the dry ingredients in a ziplock bag, I add garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. For the shephard's pie it's easy. You can buy powdered taters so that takes care of that. Boil carrots and peas and dehydrate those. You can buy dried onions "beef" if you want. Then add the former seasoning mixture. With the onions beef, add some cumin in there.Looking for other recommendations from those tired of being a slave to the pre-packaged backpacking food industry :^)
>>2109213I'm pretty sure you can make a mix of corn starch or flour with sunflower oil to make a stable powdered oil,
>>2107025based as fuck.
>>2107025Brought a JK Spon camping once. Forgot a wine key. Ended up digging the cork out with a pocket knife. Lots of floaters.
>>2104729>I would rather starve myself than have to eat rice sides one more timethere is nothing better than grilled sausage. Whenever I'm outside, I won't miss this opportunity because cooking it in a pan at home is not the same.
>>2105454Last line ruined me, lmfao.I live in Japan and ramen here gives my asshole the biggest spray shits but GOD DAMN do I fall asleep right after
>>2106994Japans eggs are safe. Not sure about Mutt Eggs, Aussie eggs are sketchy asf
For me, it's couscous with parmesan, sun dried tomatoes & deenz
Pasta parmagiano with red pepper flakes garlic and pepperoni
>>2104591Get a dehydrator. Dehydrate cubed carrots and potatoes. Also dehydrate CANNED chicken. For some reason canned chicken rehydrates well. Tear the big chunks in half before putting them on the rack. Put the carrots, potatoes, chicken, and instant ramen in a foodsaver vacuum sealer. Then you just cut open the bag and boil it all for a tasty soup.
>>2104591On last saturday I was in a natural reserve on a short dayhike with my gf. We cooked cheese pasta with tuna for our meal, using my trangia and then romantically ate it from the same pot. (We were just lazy about doing the dishes desu.) There were a shit ton of ticks, I had to remove two from my gf afterwards and she removed one from me. Also, gf almost passed out due to her insulin not working the way it was supposed to for some reason and her blood sugar levels dropping to almost critical levels. (Fucking type 1 diabeetus)
>>2110347Here you can see the meal we had. It was pretty tasty, I must say.
>>2110337Looks tasty, very nice!
first day is always steak and potatoes, after that its fish if i can catch any and ramen/instant potatoes
What are your guys's thoughts on this? I'm looking for a new thing to cook with and I was wondering if any of you had experience with it. For the price and the ratings, it doesn't look to bad.https://www.amazon.com/Stanley-Adventure-Camp-Stainless-Steel/dp/B005188T90/ref=asc_df_B005188T90/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167119746601&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10437724355914160967&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9029042&hvtargid=pla-274601934713&psc=1
>>2112078For what it is, it’s fine. I’ve moved up to titanium so it ended up being a waste of $15 for me. The green plastic cups are heavy. The pot is too narrow in my opinion, and it’s easy to tip over on a stove. Wider pots, that you can stow a fuel canister inside work better, and something like the sea to summit x-mug are better cups. If you’re planning on cooking in it and eating out of it, I think you should find a wider pot (something similar toaks 1350)
>>2112078It's good for heating up water, if you want for drinking or pasta use. I haven't used it in a stew sense, and I too would like someone who has to let me know.A bit more bulky than you might think it is, and because it is a cylinder you will have to get creative how to fill it with other supplies to make it space efficient
>>2112094Aye, the cups that come with it are bulky and I couldn't justify using them instead of just eating out of the pot with my friend
>>2111487jesus, enough meat there fatty? enjoy the gout
>>2112185I bet you enjoy eating bugs
>>2104729Brauts/sausages (with buns) and soup are easy, taste good, dont require too much, and have minimal cleanup.
I’m looking for a portable fire pit but not sure which design i prefer between these two. Any suggestions on one vs the other?
>>2104591Anybody know where I can get the trangia 2.5 L billy? They've been out of stock everywhere since covid began.
>>2109213Shepards pie requires lamb by definition. Beef is cottage pie. Veggie is faggots pie.
rate my setupamicus is better than pocket rocketpot is made of hard anodized aluminum, has heat exchanger
>>2110178Well I eat unrefrigerated mutt eggs all the time and I’m still alive. If I get a little sick that’s what Walmart is for
>>2113856I recently got one of these online. The instructions that came with it said it has a 5 day warranty. I think I made a mistake and will end up getting something better.
>>2113869I've never had problems with this setuplong time heavy user!if you feel like you need warranty on a pot go for the $100+ jetboil ones lmao, way too costly for methey perform about the same given the weight/performance ratio, so you'll really pay for that lifetime warrantyalso keep in mind, it's a pot. value and price are two different things
>>2106530I'd try to let your pan pre heat longer and use less heat when you actually cook it. They will stay hot for a long time and need less heat when it's heated up.
>>2110347T1 here,, I bring gummy snacks and powered drink mix for lows. I've found emergency electrolyte drink mixes to help with highs since I'm always eating a bunch carbs on the trail.
>>2106530Sear both sides at high heat with ghee then take it off the flame and cover with a lid and let warm into the middle another few minutes. If you are at home you can sear both sides then put into the oven to finish. But I think with cast iron just lidding it works as well as the oven.
>>2113829Imagine being this insecure of your masculinity
>>2104758It is food
>>2113856How much better are those pots compared to one of these cheap kits? The stove it came with isn’t great though so ill probably get one like the amicus.
>>2114353I have been looking at a pot like this as well, for a small one persons cooking kit for solo trips. A local hardware store is selling these no brand ones (pic related) for 22€. There are Primus Litech Trekking kettles going for 39€ at the local camping store, so I am wondering whether to go with the cheap no brand one, or pay the double and get the Primus one. I haven't yet bought a stove either, but most likely I am going with an MSR Pocket Rocket 2 or something similair, small and light.>>2113894That time we had juice boxes and glucose tablets for her lows, because it was only a dayhike, but thanks for the idea with those powdered drink mixes. I need to find something similair for longer hikes, since there is no way we are going to carry juice boxes on multi night hikes. In Finland we do not sadly have kool-aid or anything similair tho, the only powdered drinks available are sports drink powders and ice tea powder mixes. Also we were thinking about purchasing an epipen-like glucose pen for her in case she actually passes out on the trail for some reason, so I could administer her with that for first aid, do you have experiences with those? Also, do you hike alone or do you have someone with you during your hikes?
>>2104729>dehydrate vegetables and choice of protein>soak them for an hour innawoods and boil 10-20min>you now have stew/soupEasy as
>>2112185dude thats prolly a 150g steak
>>2107025Very fucking nice
>>2107116The only problem with them is that they're too heavy for extended trips.. You can't pack 5 or 7 days of canned food with you at any sort of reasonable pack weight
>>2112223I have the one on the left for car camping.. Both are too bulky for backpacking.. Consider picrel for that
>>2104758Also a little slop isn't a big deal when you need to hit 8000-10000kcal a day
>>2114599You don't "need" that much unless you're hiking for months on end or are clinically underweight.
>>2114564I carry a glucose pen and a little laminated card that reads something to tune of "if found passed out administer glucose by pen to leg." Luckily never have had to use it. I only run that setup if I'm hiking by myself but if I'm alone it's usally a trail with decent traffic. Anytime I'm camping on/off the trail I'm with a buddy or two who knows how to handle me if I'm high or low,, kinda scared to get /out/ there and something happen. Insulin can act weird for me while hiking all day. Sometimes it seems like I can't get enough sugar,, other times it hits me way later than I would think. Balancing hydration, electrolytes like salt, potassium and zinc seems to be the way to even out insulin release.
>>2107098Not a veggie, but definitely veg heavy, boil veggies at home and dry them so they loose water volume and keep better, keep ‘em in a ziploc and pour into your pot for a stew, also keep a small jar or vial of mixed spices and herbs that you like to add some flavour to stews, additionally learn the local flora and forage:>giant puff balls are basically naturally occurring tofu>fireweed roots are nice when young>burdock roots are kinda like potatoes>Many flowers are edible, including daisies>Nettles are also edible, stinging nettles need to be held over a fire to burn off the irritant though>Some naturally occurring grains and wild grasses can be ground into a rough flour and made into porridge on the go or ships biscuit for long term>Sunflower seeds are high in fat and proteinBe careful with fungi though, many edible ones have toxic lookalikes
Roasted meat for short trips. Homemade dehydrated meals for backpacking. Instant soup as a side or snack
>>2114564>A local hardware store is selling these no brand ones (pic related) for 22€.Are you against the idea of buying them directly from the chinks?I have the same pots, cutlery and stove of >>2114353 pic (well, the pots have a different brand) and the pots cost me less than 10€ on AliExpress with shipping included. (arrived pretty quick too, less than 2 weeks)But it's up to you if paying half for the same product is worth the wait.After mostly using the small one I quickly realized having a lid would be pretty handy.So now I either make a lid for them or end up buying the meme chinktanium/stainless pots that are too narrow to fit a gas canister inside.Other than a lack of a lid they are decent for the price, aren't as thin as I thought they would be.
>>2104747dat larper pack
>>2114625>Sometimes it seems like I can't get enough sugarYeah that's what also happened with my gf, apparently exercising boosts (read: even doubles) the effects of insulin. She injected 20 units (of carbs) worth less than what the meal was supposed to give her but the walk caused the insulin act as if she had injected 160 units worth instead of the 80 what it was supposed to. Do you use an insulin pump or do you just inject with it yourself after every meal? My gf refuses to use a pump. >>2114816>Are you against the idea of buying them directly from the chinks? Not exactly. I actually didn't know that you could find them from aliexpress. Another thing is that I'd rather pay it with cash since I happen to have cash laying around. (Grandma likes giving me money whenever I meet her, thanks grandma.) Also, after 1.7.2021 the customs start requiring paying 24% of VAT and customs fee on every order coming out of EU area. And with my luck it would take 3 months to arrive. It always does with Aliexpress orders.>>2114749I need to get a dehydrator of my own so I could start making my own dehydrated meals for the trail. That would make supplying for those trips a lot easier (and cheaper).>>2114831What's wrong with the bag? I have had a similair bag for 6 years by now and it has never let me down. I have had it in army during field exercises, I have had it as my traveling bag (perfect size for hand luggage traveling) when I have gone abroad, I have used it in scouts activities and on dayhikes. Perfect for an overnight hike, given that you can source your drinking water from the area and it is summer.
>>2115121>Grandma likes giving me money whenever I meet her, thanks grandmaBased grandma. God bless her.>after 1.7.2021 the customs start requiring paying 24% of VAT and customs fee on every order coming out of EU areaForgot about that.I haven't bought anything from China since April exactly because of that, gonna wait to see how it goes.Supposedly if the VAT is already paid they won't charge the customs fee. But yeah, better wait and see how fucked in the ass we poorfags are gonna get.Still, some sellers on AliExpress ship from Europe (Spain, France, Poland, etc.)
>>2104591>cup noodlesLEARN TO COOK REAL FOOD YOU LAZY FUCK!
>>2110347>for some reasonPhysical activity burns sugar faster, so you have to replenish (eat) more often.
My locall asian supermarket has self heating hot pots and I got to tell you it's changed everything
>>2114816>make a lidOne pot is the lid for the other.
>>2115295>One pot is the lid for the other.You don't say, anon...It's not like it's shown like that in all the photos and the big pot actually has a lip to accommodate the smaller one.As I said, I mostly end up using only the small one. (as such I leave the big one at home)And even if I used the big one, putting the small one on top is kinda awkward considering the pot is already precariously balanced on top of a small camping stove.The simplest (and most fun) solution is to grab the tools and a piece of alu/ss sheet and cut a lid.
>make food on 14’ collapsible grill>bunch of bugs and small critters attracted by the smell of sausage>scrub the grill plate clean, empty the grease plate and bury the grease>walk back to camp and sleep>wake up to racoons, ants, and owls all lurking around the tentHow do i stop animals from following me after i cook meat? I always make sure to cook at least a 2 or more minute walk away from the tent.
>>2112185Euro poor detected.
Havent done a lot of backpacking, but the few times I did, I brought some pot from home and turned sooty over a campfire. Now I'm looking to get some cookware, and deciding between titanium or aluminum. Aluminum is cheaper, but I think it will get ruined if you put it over a fire, unlike titanium? What should I do for a first timer?
>>2116104If you're worried about alzheimer's, stainless steel. If not, aluminium.Titanium is a meme, you can't cook in it.
>>2104591hell yeah bud, ramen noodles with some freshly harvested seaweed (just make sure youre somewhere away from a municipal sewage outflow)
>>2116104You want a stainless steel pot. It’s going to get sooty though if you insist on cooking over a campfire.https://www.msrgear.com/cookware/stainless-steel
>>2116228Can the soot be cleaned?
>>2116812it cleans up no problem. Try using a magic eraser (aka melamine sponge) on light stains, or Barkeeper’s Friend (oxalic acid) on tough stains. Oxalic acid will bring it back to like-new condition, super easy.
i am super lazy when cooking out, especially when I bring my 5-year-old daughter with me. A go-to is wrap bratwurst in foil and drop it in the embers. somehow tastes better than frying it in a pan. You can also make pies of all kinds using white bread. Try putting cherry pie filling between two slices of white bread, pinching the edges down to seal the slices together, then wrap in foil or place in a pie iron and roast in the fire. You can put literally anything in there: try sloppy joe filling, chili and cheese, bacon bits and onions, or chocolate and marshmallows.
I just got back from a two week RV trip, I'll post a few of our dutch oven camp fire mealsTortilla beer brats n mustard
The camp fire chili was probably the best meal of the trip.
On the last night we just threw all of the remaining food into a single pot.Several packages of ramen seasoning and noodles, Hormel chili, wolf chili, sliced ham, whole stick of butter, refried beans, beer brats, Velveeta shells and cheese, salsa, serrano peppers, whole clove of garlic
>>2117418>that shin ramen
>>2104591I don't love ramen but I do love an easy hot meal when it's raining.
>>2117251oh snap I'm making my five year old son blueberry pie next time we go camping, thanks anon
>>2117461Based and wholesome father pilled
>>2112185t. no friends lmao
>>2112095i got one for $10 a while back. is the esbit stove worth it for it? i have a decent cooking spot in my main hike location but im not totally innawoods so i need a relatively clean cook source like esbit or alcohol stove. might just bitte the bullet and get a liquid fuel stove.
>>2117847I have an esbit stove but I very rarely use it. The fuel smells like poison when it burns, I do not like it at all. Also, it leaves annoying residue to the bottom of the pot and is hard to remove from it.
>>2117847>so i need a relatively clean cook source like esbit or alcohol stove.go with alcohol instead
>>2117864is this worth it?
Made burgers with carmelized onions for dinner one night then made sausage in a cast iron, eggs, cast iron toast, hash browns, and instant gravy for breakfast the next morning, it was tits. Just me and my buddies car camping so nothing serious, faggots in the site next to us listened to Metallica and AC/DC all day and all night for two days straight so it kinda fucked the trip. Scumbags.
>>2115121I use a pump and on longer trips, I literally can just turn it off for most of the day, until I rest or eat. Yea, exercise makes insulin absorb at basically twice the rate which is why exercise is so important for T1s. If she can get a pump, they're one of those things you don't think would have a big effect on your life, then you get one especially with a cgm combo.
Tilquin, taters, tuna, and some weird spiced Norwegian seed bread
>>2114597I do have one of those, but i was kind of wanting an enclosed one for when its windy (seems safer than a stone pit), and also wouldnt have to build a pit if I’m at a spot without one. I think at some levels of firebans youre able to use those kind of enclosed stoves but not a campfire on the ground as well. I’m also looking at getting something for backpacking. Picrel seems nice as it packs down pretty small and is slightly under 1lb. Other recommendations for light/small ones would be nice, might get it instead of a large one or just get one of each.
>>2114831It's great bag for a long day of hiking, anon. If I was spending the night or any longer than that, I'd use a Mystery ranch terraframe 50. I don't go camping over night any more, anon, so I'm fone with spending the entire day just hiking and enjoying being /out/.
>>2118484>I don't go camping over night any moreWhy not?
>>2118506I've told this short green text in the past, so you probably read it.>Friend and I go camping.>friend says he's got to go take a shit.>walks off to go take a shit.>gunshot.jpeg>go see what happen.>buddie popped his top with a 12 gauge.I stopped camping after that, only do day hikes, cabins, shit like that now.
>>2118407>>2118431You really just gonna ignore my post:>>2117318it's not enclosed, the bottom is open. when I was using it on a log the log started to char underneath. It is a very good stove, but it is not the one you pictured, atleast not the brand or the top portion. mine has cross to hold pots
My wife and I make vaccuum sealed pouches of lentil dhal with added dehydrated vegetables and TVP (she's vegetarian). Also, oatmeal with dehydrated apples and maple syrup. Pic related is some hardtack I've made. Not perfectly shelf stable because I added some spices, but it will last long enough and is good added to soups and broths. I want to try doing stews with dehydrated chicken and veg too.
>>2119005I've always wanted to have sex with a desi woman while camping.
>>2118664How did you like it? Some of the reviews of the one i had posted a pic of said it was a little difficult to keep a proper fire going long enough to boil or cook with due to the size and no side opening. It seemed pretty closed as well, i dont think it would char a wood table or something like that.
>>2104591Oatmeal, also dehydrated hashbrowns make for a good breakfast.
>>2104729Dehydrate your own food then you gourmand cunt or shut the fuck up and carry the weight of food. Weak as piss!
>>2104591great way to absolutely ruin that kale, good job retard; everybody on here nowadays is some NEET faggot who can barely feed themselves without mom's help. bunch of fucking retards
>>2107064are you a fucking hobo? who the fuck actually eats shit like what's in your picture?
>>2119048there's an opening; pic relatedI dont know what morons in the reviews are thinking, but if they are afraid to put wood in the large opening like I did, its always an option to just lift the pot for two seconds.That said, I was able to boil a full 20oz fairly quickly with about a good fistful and a half of bark and wood chips
>>2119048if you want something that's>due to the size and no side openingcheck out the esbit I was using for wood burning before this new stove. Was definitely able to pull wood burning duties, but it was a pain to get a fire started. I use it for fuel tabs like youre supposed to now, and those light up immediately and a full tab boils the 20oz
>>2119524I got the same one and think the hole should be bigger so bigger logs can be burnt instead of splitting everything a hundred times. But it works and I wouldn't buy another one.
>>2119821Any wider and I think the criss-cross beams wouldnt have room. There are longer styles out there that look like briefcases you might want to check. They allow for longer pieces

>>2107025impressive, very nice
>>2121573Aluminum dish with grill works great for outdoor cooking.It's cheap, and easily available, and coal can give you very high heat for long time.And the whole thing weight less than 200 g.And you can still use it as wood stove.I don't understand how people fall for the +100$ stove meme.
>>2121572seems like an awful lot of work when stuff like >>2118431 is under $30
>>2121705Not available for me.And this just support the consume culture, which isn't what /out/ about.
>>2121705>30$ for steel stove>diy cost less than 5$
>>2121710then by all means give it a go. It would be tough to make something that packs down as well but if thats not a concern one large can and then a slightly smaller can would probably be all you need. Just drill/cut holes into each of them
>>2121572Look into a hand drill to make one out of a log, way less weight and pretty much once you make it you have fuel. otherwise just buy a 11$ stove on ebay.
>>2121715>canjust make a fire hole, with grill on top.
>>2121720that didnt seem to be what he was asking for. Some places it can be pretty hard to get a deep enough hole.
>>2121722Can't be made from two coke cans?
>>2121724no, aluminum cans wont hold up to the heat, you need to use tin cans.
>>2121726I don't think small stove temps can reach 1220 F
>>2121572I made a few for giggles from a step bit, awl and knife. Somehow they worked in 20mph snowy winds but they don't last. They become squishable from all the holes and rusty because tin can. Next one will made from coleman propane cylinders or aluminum co2 tanks.
>>2121781How long does it take to heat a cup of water?
>>2121719That looks awesome but with a spade bit and a manual drill it would take a couple hours. I could bring my cordless drill next time I go car camping though.
>>2118570lmao just go solo

>>2121841This actually work?I don't think alcohol can really be a good fuel source.
>>2121841tuna can is way more durable and less work>>2121843>I don't think alcohol can really be a good fuel source.jesus how many fucking newfag cityidiots invaded /out/ since the covid?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pajkt594Ruw
>>2121919How much alcohol do you need to heat up that?Also alcohol is expensive, and not available in nature.
>>2121928I agree brother>t. Whisperlite international user
>>2121930I mean yes, alcohol stove doesn't stain your cookware, but it means you need to carry extra fuel because it dry fast, and it's flame is invisible in day light.
>>2121928>>2121930>alcohol is too expensive>>2121930>>t. Whisperlite international useryou should be ashamed, the international version can run alcohol toohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3MfZY9Mwmc
>>2121945>the international version can run alcohol tooI'm well aware, I was being facetious
>>2121945>burning moneyWood is free
>>2118570I'm not trying to diagnose you or anything dude but coming from a guy with PTSD that sounds like avoidance. It's okay to get help.
>>2121945Just get pic related.Cheaper than alcohol, safer, and even more efficient.I can use it in winter camping just fine.The tank last me about 7-10 days.
>>2121970Based kerosene poster.I'm thinking of buying the stove version, I have the lamp and it's better than any LED light.The downside it attracts insect.
>>2121997Burn citronella in it
>>2121782On the small stove it took 5-10min depending on the wood. 3/4" diameter branches cut to 1" lengths was the best fuel. 36"-48" of a dry branch could make a a pot boil. Its kind of tedious to keep feeding it and I would never rely on it outside of novelty. The bigger one is also a novelty because of its size but would burn everything.
>>2122116Why not use coal?
>>2122065nta but >The downside it attracts insectcitronella repels insects
>>2122120I don't know if a coal fire small enough to fit in that can would do the job, but you can definitely melt steel cans on a coal fire. I would experiment before relying on that.
>>2122129I think small 3-4 cubes of coal would add sufficient heat, without compromising the stove or needing to keep adding wood.
>>2121665Why the hell didn't I think of this? I have a bunch of these trays leftover from processing beeswax as well.
>>2104591>>2112223>>2114597https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mg91VsButWEAnyone ever tried using these? They seem like they don't take up much space, and work just as well as a normal gas stove. Maybe good for a day hike?
>>2122353You can go a step further and use pot grill.I leave these on key point in trail/ public parks.I've been using it for the last few years with no issue.
>>2121573>precureI thought this was a kid show?Also I understand the basic concept of the grill illustrated, not sure how to do it.But I think it's portable stove that can even use wood.
>>2122374>They seem like they don't take up much spaceThat's true.>work just as well as a normal gas stoveDefinitely not.They use alcohol very quickly, don't put much heat.It's gimmick at best.Alcohol stove are best used in labs.
>>2122466I use my alcohol stoves most. This is because I tend to go on day trips more than anything else. If I am in an environment that is permissive for a wood stove or fire, I like that sure. The last few places I went were not those places. I wanted something quick, dirty and small. A trangia stove filled up with a 1-2 oz bottle is enough for me and will fit in my hand. Yeah, they are slow but I pack a piece of tinfoil that I use for a windscreen. Not a big deal.
>>2121508The listing and the sellers answer to the question both say 1.1lb, which is more than the one posted above. The flat thing is nice but the small cylinder isnt so bad
>>2121572Yes it is, same goes for homemade alcohol stove, they work as well the one you buy
>>2121843It is a great fuel and it's cheap, you find it at gas stations called Heer, at the grocery store as fondue stove fuel
What's the ideal cookware set to go with a Coleman dual fuel camp stove?Unless /out/ has deemed that they suck. For reference I just want something I can take out to a quiet fishing spot and cook a hot meal for me and a couple friends during a day trip.
>>2123145My parents just use pots and pans from home with theirs.
>>2123145Anything really, second just normal posts and pans. Pic related was breakfast last week.
>>2104591Everyone knows Vienna sausages and potted meat is the best /out/ meal. Ill fight anybody that says otherwise
>>2104591SOSIJ and EGGZ>>2123145I use a GSI 2 pot stainless nesting set. Non-stick is for ultralight queers.
>>2123161>breakfast last week>30 cigs and a bunch of beersjfc you're livin the life
>>2123197If I’m not dead by 40 I haven’t lived life correctly.
>>2104591question for the dudes making pasta in those stanley cookware sets....what doyou do with the water you used to boil the pasta in? isn't it a waste of water?
>>2104591just eat salami.no need for cooking pot, cooker and gas.
not dry, can't eat
>>2123252you can measure it so that you don't waste a lot of watersome of the Lipton Sidekicks tell you the exact amount you need so that it just cooks up and there's no left over wateralso if you're near a water source then water is free
Washington trail lobster
Reject Lipton Sidekicks. Embrace mushroom.
>>2120928I don't blame you for asking because I was initially confused as well, but yeah, think about it. With a story like that you've got to take the omission of information as implying the worst.
>>2123582>lobster>posts lions manewhat did he mean by this?
>>2121841>nails>shows pop-rivetsthis is upsetting.
>>2121928As opposed to gas cartridges?
>>2124559as opposed to wood/coal.
>>2124562>he doesn't mine coal on his hikesTop larp.
>>2124567>mineI mean compared to alcohol, coal generate more heat for the same weight.Les explosive, and meat taste better with it.
>>2124572>available in nature
>>2124589Well in a way yes.But packing it would be easier.
>>2120186not everyone are thru-hikers anon
>>2111487looks fucking great>>2112185what a fucking loser
>>2105208>>chopped potatoes and carrots>>frozen beef stew chunks>congrats you've got yourself a healthy soup. the only issue is keeping the meat frozen, so you can only eat it on day 1.Used smoked meats (pre cooked - some cajun style sausage works great and flavors well) or do day one.
>>2104729Just get MRE
>>2123611It tastes like lobster.
>>2126441wow i'm retarded yeah good pointfor some reason i was thinking about lobster mushrooms
>>2111487Settle an argument, is that pork or beef?
Tested my Yugoslavian pot for the first time with my friend today. It is very nice
>>2112185>if you have a high caloric maintenance then you're fatcan guess you're not from /fit/
Please recommend 1 pot recipies with no meat, I want to carry ingredients with me and not use any instant food
>>2104591I'm looking at a solution to my cooking problem, I don't know what I need.
Pro tip use steaks as ice packs, and after a few days when it fully dethaws you get a nice steak dinner a few days in
>>2121713time is money, or do you not have a job?
>>2124595do you go hiking exclusively to the coal mines?
>>2124572>>2124595I hike in anthracite country and if you actually went outside instead of LARPing you would know even soft coal isn't convenient for cooking, takes too long to get burning and by the time you get it started using wood, you have a useable wood fireand good luck trying to light anthracite without a proper furnace
>get a Stanley flask>little weld spots on the bottom interiorRust? Weld spatter? I tried cleaning it thoroughly and nothing is bringing it up. What sort of Chinese heavy metal poisoning will I contract from using this thing?
>>21272721. Throw any vegetables and starches you want in pot2. Boil3. Add salt and pepper
>>2127636that looks amazing, but what can isubstitute shimeji mushrooms with?champignon/chanterelle?
>>2127965bro just go to the asian grocer they probably have somet. asian grocer pro
>>2127979there's probably one around 50 miles from where i live
>>2127983Portobellos are your best bet to substitute
>>2127987i think i can find that, thanks
>>2127965It's not going to be that different if you use a different mushroom. Texture will be different but that's not going to be that critical to the dish.
>>2127965forage or buy some oyster mushrooms
>>2127459>time is money, or do you not have a job?It takes less time to create one than ordering or actually buying one.
>>2127480No, but 12 cubes of coal cost less and weight less than alcohol with much better heat production.And in case of no coal, I can use wood.
>>2127524What about charcoal?
>>2128306Its not. On average coal has a lower MJ/kg (18-27) than ethanol does (27). Its also a lot bulkier.
>>2128325>On average coal has a lower MJ/kg (18-27) than ethanol does (27)Coal has 32 compared to ethanol 27.And most alcohol isn't even ethanol it's methanol and it's around 22
>>2128334Men, internet seems split on how much coal is, regardless its a lot bulkier and has to be kept.dry (ETH does to I suppose but its usually in a bottle)Most alcohol isn't methanol it is just denatured with it, alcohol also burns cleaner and can be used medically or if you get grain alcohol you can get drunk off it.. Alcohol masterrace
>>2128414>regardless its a lot bulkier and has to be kept.dry (ETH does to I suppose but its usually in a bottle)Invalid point, since I can make similar points.You can coat it in wax and it would be water proof, the bottle could break for and alcohol would evaporate.>Most alcohol isn't methanol it is just denatured with it, alcohol also burns cleaner and can be used medically or if you get grain alcohol you can get drunk off it.The invisible flame is dangerous, and easy way to get burned or start fire.And the "cleaner" flames isn't actual correct mostly you'll get some other stuff mixed in the alcohol.Alcohol is good for sub zero temps and labs.
>>2128306>>2128419Want to know how I know you've never gone outside before?
>>2128540post ONE (1) picture of you cooking with a coal fire innawoods, without using an paper, wood, or lighter fluid as a firestarterAnd no, your state park charcoal barbecue pit doesn't count
>>2128543>without using an paper, wood, or lighter fluid as a firestarterHow do you start your alcohol stove?
>>2128546one spark from pic relatedhow does a larper like you start your "coal fires"?
>>2128551I rub dicks with your dad and generate heat to ignite the charcoal.
>>2128560Thats a nice picture crom your backyard, personally I like the weber chimney starters myself, they have more airflow.

Stop LARPing>sack of tubers (cassava, plantain, breadfruit, sweet potato, etc...)>grain (bulgur wheat, rice, etc....)>oil>spices>wrappings (banana leaves, corn husks)>pot, graterThrow tubers in ashes to bake them. Or grate them into mash then wrapping the mash (stuff with meat?) and boiling them innapot (think pasteles/tamales/etc...). Or just saute something in the pot, then add tubers and make a stew. Make a pilaf with grains. I'd honestly just go with starchy tubers--don't even need a cooking vessel for them. Think CALORIES CALORIES CALORIES. Tub of Lard? YES. Several cans of tomato sauce? NO. Bottle of oil? YES. etc..etc...etc......
>>2128867I don't know how long dry beans take to cook in the field, so either pressure cook them at home beforehand or just choose easy-cooking ones like lentils, split-peas, etc....Beans/peas, Tubers, Oil, Grain, and Spices should keep you going
>>2128867>Throw tubers in ashes to bake them. Or grate them into mash then wrapping the mash (stuff with meat?) and boiling them innapot (think pasteles/tamales/etc...).All that work when an anime about high school girls going camping gives you a simpler solution: just wrap your potatoes and veggies in foil and roast themhave you never made baked potatoes at home anon?
>>2128867>>2128871>Stop LARPing>carry around a vegetable grater and corn husks to wrap your food withalso>I don't know how long dry beans take to cook in the fieldslow down there big guy, all your mountain-man make believe roleplay is making me laugh out my dinner
>>2128867Oh and I almost forgot you need an msg-source or an umami-source or whatever the hell you call it. Whether it be packets of msg mixed with other spices (see image) or bouillon, or fish sauce or onions sauce, etc…. Can absolutely rescue a dish to give it mmmmph. Won’t hurt to carry some vinegar/hot sauce too. As for spices: salt obviously. Something like a Mediterranean spice mix would be fine. I particularly like dried Rosemary, oregano, cumin, etc….As for breads, probably simple bakingpowder+flour flatbreads cooked on a hot surface pan is your best non-LARP bet. I would bring an imusa aluminum caldero if I needed one piece of cookware. >>2128899Potatoes are indeed convenient
>>2128907A grater is a ridiculously useful piece of cookware. Husks/leaves/etc… for steaming and boiling food is normal practice in tropical countries and beats foil. Certain Beans might take too long to cook that was my concern
BIG potBeef/chicken ramen, preferably at least 6 packets if you canCut up some celery, carrots, onionGet cubed garlic and onions sauce, keep the seasoning packets for later.Turn stove on medium, gradually raise to high until boiling.When boiling, put the ramen, chicken, celery, corn, onions, and some garlic in. Might want to go light on the garlic.When it seems to get the noodle consistency, start actively stirring to one side of the pot as to not disrupt the boiling process.When nearly done, put all the seasoning packets in, don’t mix flavors.Take out, put onions sauce if that’s your do, pack in tightly to plastic containers once the noodles won’t burn through it, and put it in the freezer.Get a mini cooler, be prepared for purifying water if you don’t have enough, and you have a perfect meal. Was doing some experimenting on my off time and this tasted the best and had the best variety of nutrients reheated. Obviously make more than what’s in the picture. Don’t have any pictures of it outside since I don’t use my camera when hiking often, so I guess you’ll have to take my word that it’s great and cheap. I make eggs separately.
>>2128871Cold soaking food while hiking is a thing, usually for people who want to go stoveless, never tried it with beans but it'd probably work
>>2121843>>2121928you don't use fucking whiskey you absolute retard, you use industrial ethanol you can buy at the gas station or hardware store. Undrinkable, cheap, and like 90% proof. >>2121919Cat food can (fancy feast) has worked much better than tuna for me. The dimensions actually matter, to get a good flame.
>>2104729>I would rather starve myself than have to eat rice sides one more time>Not packing homemade Scottish oatcakes or a bag of pasta as source of carbs.
>>2104591Cold soaked couscous, aka taboule. Boulgour also works. A little olive oil. Salted peanuts and chorizo or salchichon. Oatmeals for breakfast.
>>2117892>burgers with carmelized onionsHi Richard.
>>2129343You don't happen to look like picrel do you? Just curious.
>>2129352Not that anon: but Ive hiked after Darwin's bubble twice now, that guy has the ego the size of a fucking state, he got BTFO'd of town at Kennedy meadows too for being a fucking primadona. But hey his production quality is okay and he actually hikes so WCYD?

>>2128419u dont use alcohol, u use Methyl from "HEET" shits cheap, burns a clean blue, doesn't smell blah blah blah. i use it for soda can gas burners.
>>2130276I use methyl alcohol to prime my gasolin stove.For similar weight I get more than simple alcohol stove.
>>2130274dont eat to much, you will get fat
>>2130400thats neat. see fire danger is huge where i live so u gotta use all these other things such as gas, or sometimes solar when even gas burners are banned
>>2130935And alcohol stove are safer?>solarYou kidding right? Even wood stove would be better option.
>>2130935Do you live in a petrol station
>>2130400isn't methanol dangerous to inhale?
>>2131233Yeah.You need very small amount to prime the stove.You could use other options like wood or even gasoline.

>>2121919I dunno man. I've tried making one of these a couple of times, but I just can't. Each time, after setting my pot on top, flame just goes out.At the moment I'm using this design with a wick - works much better for me, no need for priming and I'm less worried about spilling alcohol everywhere:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qz-3IX6inZw
someone feel like giving me a quick rundown on what to look for in a simple gas stove + pot, apart from the basics like size and weight. any reason to get a more expensive option?
Anyone use this setup from the army canteen set? Thoughts?
>>2134603Looks heavy.Generally speaking I'm really wary of anything for army - often they're made in a very economical way (doing their job, but just barely), without any consideration for comfort. And anything with "military" in it's name costs more. Gear for tourists is often better.
