At-home cooking

Just thought I'd share some of my favorite recipes for cooking at home, and give you a place to do the same. Might as well share some suggestions for making these recipes work in camp, too. I'll start with "rapid-fried lamb slices". I found this in some chinese cookbook from the 80's that ...

Re: Coil stoves? I'm inspired, but cautious.

I am a little surprised I found something you have not made, much less seen, Zelph. I've been trying to view your store without luck. Is the link working? Also, I noticed today at the local Ace hardware tat there is something called an "expansion plug" that might work well as a Stopper for...

Re: Coil stoves? I'm inspired, but cautious.

Well, it doesn't work. Seems like the jet is too big or the wick too small. It lights up nicely, primes, then blows itself out, as though there is not enough fuel feeding into the coil. Oh well. I definitely agree with Ridgerunner on the fuel port, too. Just working with what I have on hand right no...

Re: Coil stoves? I'm inspired, but cautious.

IMG_4758.JPG Here it is all glued up. The JB Weld will is not yet fully hardened. As I said before, I left the fuel port tubing long to protect the drain plug from excessive heat. I also installed a support/heat shield made from some leftover can material. I figured this would help hold the long fu...

Re: Pyromid 12" stove/grille

Pretty cool rig. I'd love to see you try it as a solar cooker, too. Maybe that's a summer project, though?

Re: Wool yarn from the backs of the sheep

My mouth is watering. I have half a pig at the butcher's ready for pickup, and a neighbor sells some wonderful grassfed ground beef. I was toying with the idea of mixing lamb, beef and pork to make a big ol' meatloaf...yum.

Re: Coil stoves? I'm inspired, but cautious.

well I assembled the parts yesterday, let them cure, then noticed the wick still sitting there on the table. I'd forgotten to install it before assembling the body. Oops. Pounded 2 more Bud Lites (hate the stuff, should have just thrown it away or hired a drunk to drink it for me). Cut new parts, ma...

Re: Wool yarn from the backs of the sheep

Excellent! I can practically smell the meatloaf and feel the wool.

Re: Coil stoves? I'm inspired, but cautious.

Here are the parts for my first attempt, ready for assembly. IMG_4754.JPG Far left is a handy little device I found at the local hardware store (Ace, I believe). It was in the drawers where you find the oddball hardware, and was labeled "drain plug, 3/8" to 1/2"". You can screw t...
