Look at the label some more. Water is the first ingredient listed on many foods, fat, protein, fibre, ash, etc.

Spent a night out at the Salton Sea last weekend. My friend Jim tried out his new, made it himself, folding Bar-B-Que.

BIG O'L Pork chops and chicken.



Pretty slick how Jim used skewers for grills. A series of holes allow you to move the srewers up and down while the top row allows you to rotate and lift the skewers out. All folds up into a neat little package.

After dinner he even made a nice peach cobbler using a small aluminum pan and lid placing it in the bar-b-que with a few coals on top.

Keith,

Would you have any other pictures of your friend's folding grill. It's super cool. Thanks for posting the pic.

Here are a couple more. Sorry I don't have one of it folded up.



If you look close you can see that the inside bottom has a piece of perforated metal that keep the coals up off the bottom allowing for better air circulation.



At some point i'll get a picture of it ready to pack on the bike.

Add wine

Some years ago I realized on Oct. 31 that my annual parks pass was about to expire, so I decided to spend Halloween night in Rocky Mountain National Park. I threw my stuff, including my pre-packed kitchen box, into my car and took off. After setting up my tent in the dark, I set about making dinner on a propane stove, and realized that I had left behind all the cookware that I had removed from the box for cleaning, and I had brought raw sausage for dinner. Fortunately, I had my souvenir Alcatraz metal prisoner's cup. After burning some sausage in the cup, I decided to pour in some wine and boil it. Delicious!

Since then I've been adding wine to a lot of my camping cooking, with great results. I'll boil up a bunch of brown rice before the trip, and stick a big ziploc bag of it in my cooler. Canned chili mixed with brown rice and a good shot of wine is remarkably tasty after a day of hiking.

Oh, I tend to use Merlot, but if you're taking advice on wine from me, you have a problem I can't solve.

I have an old aluminum radio chassis for an electronics project that I never used and it is nearly the same size as your friends. I wouldn't mind using it now to build a stove! Half of this project is in my basement! I like the hinged metal supports to make it all fold down nice and compact. Need to find some sheet Al to make those parts.

The skewer idea is genius - they can also be used for kebobs which is an easy camp fire meal in itself (very little prep and clean up). Good idea to put the notches in the top edge just for that purpose.

Note the lower holes to get the skewer rods closer to the coals if needed. Pretty slick set up, although too big for what I care to haul with me. Nice work!

This meal takes about 15 minutes total to make and clean up takes less. This cooking settup (not counting the one 442 stove and cookware) folds flat and fits in the lid of one Jesse bag.
This all too fancy for me.I usually just bring rice and instant noodle and a few drinks

I was also thinking that this would be a great setup for car camping. Once in awhile we need to take the cage for trips and having a compact setup would be nice. I think that a couple of those cans of gel fuel would be great as well and would mean that I could leave the ol' Coleman dual burner at home.

All good ideas. YMMV.

Be careful cooking starchy things like beans in a pressure cooker. They can splatter, and the splatter plug the steam outlet. This can result in a buildup of pressure, and the pressure relief valve letting go, with dramatic results.

This happened to my mom once when I was a kid. Basically what happened was that the contents of the pressure cooker liquified and over the course of maybe 10 seconds were deposited evenly on every surface within about 8 feet, including the ceiling. Fortunately nobody was nearby to get scalded.

If that little weight thing ever stops rocking and venting steam, take the pot of the heat!

Also, don't ever bang a metal spoon against the edge of the pot to knock food off it; you'll make little dings in the rim of the pot that will allow steam to leak.

Looks like this grill was fabricated by the owner.

Look in the CAMPMOR.com on line catalogue. They offer a similar style folding grill. One could drill holes for the skewers etc.

This is a great setup.

Same for mornings it is nice to chat around the coffee pot and then whip up some breakfast.

Gear wise I use an MSR Dragonfly...very loud stove but it boils with the best and simmers like no other. My pans are an inexpensive GSI set, I use the sea to summit xplate a collapsible plate can be used as a cutting board, pot lid, plate or even a bowl. They also make cups and bowls. I scored a polar bear coller over the winter that works well.

Meal wise I ate mostly stir fry's for dinner and eggs and hash for breakfast. I like to find local markets and farms in season to buy my provisions.

Here is a couple of coffee pots going at a recent ride we had here in NE



Scrambled eggs and ham with a side of hash



Pork tenderloin with potatoes, onions, mushrooms and zuke's



Terriaki Steak, peppers, onions, shrooms and rice..

Ready to cook



Ready to eat




Whipping up breakfast for a couple other inmates

Damn Dave, I need to show this to my wife, maybe she will come along for the May trip. . .

My favorite quick fix meal is a can of Chunky Soup (Chicken or Beef) and a bag of Success Rice, mixed together after they are cooked.
