Re: dehydrated meals

Interesting thread! Cadyak do you dehydrate your own cooked brown rice use instant? I found brown instant rice worked alright for FBC meals, so I've not bothered cooking and dehydrating rice. If you cook it, does it turn out better? One of my favourite FBC meals to make at home right now is meat, be...

Re: Firemug Loading/Burning videos

@cadyak The good thing about using the hardware cloth mesh for a pot support is it's easy to make a few different heights and try them out to experiment. Maybe on another test, all things the same, I'll try using a 1.5" to see what it goes like. Yes, this will be 'habit forming' I think I will ...

Re: Firemug Loading/Burning videos

I've found me a stainless steel mug and have started working on it tonight! But have a few questions for y'all. I've experimented with making a few wood gassifier burners with tin cans of varying success. But I'm switching to stanless steel because they rust something horrible, and I recall learning...

Re: stove making for caldera clone

It's a fun process to create something and then *improve it*. I had this theory that it could work with slightly less than 15ml because last time it had a rolling boil for over a minute. So I tried a ml or two less and it didn't boil. Strange. It only reached 92c. Could it be because theres a small ...

Re: stove making for caldera clone

I think my Nalgine bottle may not have correct measurement markings! Today I measured from another cup and used distilled water. My stove & cone performed quite a bit better... all other things the same. Test #2: Using distilled water, 500ml water, 19c ambient, 23c water 6.5 minutes to 93c 7 min...

Re: stove making for caldera clone

Here's a pic of the stove. Something I've been tinkering with. Inspired by the great stove designs I've seen online. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-dRzB1zyblME/Tj7gY2lXvdI/AAAAAAAAAa4/ROJm9W64DlQ/s512/IMAG0373-1.jpg It's made from a tin of vienna sausage (or some other horrible canned meat). stu...

Re: stove making for caldera clone

I made a new cone windscreen from aluminum flashing to match the 800 ml Brunton aluminum pot. It's much much better designed and constructed than my first one. Very happy with it. I like how rock solid stable it is. I used the script from captain paranoia at outdoor magic. I burned 15 ml alcohol, to...

Re: Backpacking Sausage/Landjaeger/orLandjager

Another one I keep hearing about is Chorizo : a dry ready to eat smoked pork sausage with cilantro, paprika, garlic, chili powder, very spicy.
I keep hearing that it's backpacked. Isn't there any concern about foodborne illness with meats in the warm / hot temperatures?
