  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    The other day I put together a cinder block grill, look a rack out of the smoker, put it on the grill, then cooked some steaks. Let's just say everything went better than expected. A few days later I added another cinder block and a tray from a grill to the top. Some sausage was put on the...

    I felt like using my dutch oven so I built a fire on my dutch oven table and got some nice coals. Made some biscuits and put them in the butter coated cast iron oven. In about 17 minutes they were about as perfect a buttermilk biscuit as you could want. We had these with sausage that I...

    Hi all, and thanks for letting me come aboard. I didn't know what to post as an introduction to you fine folks that would be useful to you, so I thought I would just do a write up of my Swedish Army stove. It's an excellent piece of kit that should be considered in anyone's survival gear...

    some interesting ideas for improvised emergency stoves using bricks; certainly not something that'll go into your BOB but in the back of a truck or prepositioned at a BOL especially if they are inconspicuously scattered for quick reassembly; and finally the first one i saw and the one i am...

    Well to start off I thank you for any responses you have. My question is why are rocket stoves such a big thing. Other type cooking devices seem so much simpler and easier, for example the soda can alcohol stove. Rocket stoves seem impractical. For one what I have seen is they need a lot off...

    While my wife an I are camping at Martin Dies State Park – which is closee to Jasper Texas – I thought this would be a good time to talk about our Bug Out Box. We do not call it a Bug Out Box per say, we call it our camping box. But it would serve either purpose. If some kind of SHTF event...

    I have a new question for the group. I have purchased an outdoor propane cooker and gas for cooking so if my SHTF includes a loss of power I can cook for the family. But not all things can be cooked on a stove top cooker in a pan. Does anyone know of a portable oven that can be put on top of...

    The thread about cooking smells & masking them after things go south got me to thinking on another matter. For those of us that live in urban areas what do we do with our trash? Eating & daily living is going to generate some. All people would have to do is watch what other people are throwing...

    I had a dear friend who tells a story from the Great Depression. He was about 12 years old in 1935. He said his family was barely making it. They were farmers in East Texas. Very often he ate just bread as they had no other food. Unlike today where everybody has food stamps and welfare...

    So I finally got around to getting some dried eggs from auguson farms. I bought a few tins of it and was excited to try it out, but so far can not find a way to make the product palatable in the least. My dog doesn't even like it :(. I tried mixing in milk and whipping it, cheese...

    I'm curious to know how many here own and regularly use a solar oven. IMHO, solar is great for not only supplying power but also for cooking. No need for fossil fuel to cook and sanitize water. The Solar Oven: A Great Appliance for Camping and Prepping

    A good pressure cooker, can be used over open fire, use to cook rice, since this staple is in most preps having a means to cook it besides just boiling would be nice. Might as well eat well off all the food you store up. Makes great tender fluffy rice. Use it to cook meats that normally may be...

    Tested out my new Sun Oven today. Absolutely love it. I have built solar ovens for years out of cardboard and aluminum foil. I have taught countless sixth graders how to make their own sun ovens as well. But on my wish list this year was the Sun Oven which is a commercial product. It costs...

    For what ever reason I have always planned my meal plans around the number of people and how many meals I can get for the lowest cost. I have somewhere around 25 different meals (not including breakfast) that I have large quantities of that don't include breaking into my canned meats. Here's...

    I've learned from here that I can buy campfire pots and pans and skillets to cook on the grill or open fire. But what do you recommend we buy for baking, assuming we'll not have power? Thanks, Kathy EMP

    Just saw this video on http://shtf411.com/ . It is a great project for someone who has a general understanding of TV componants. I will have to send this to my son.

    Want to boost moral after a disaster? Security, something to do, and a good hot meal. After hurricane Ike and Rita, the police were not able to resound to 911 calls. The roads were blocked with debris and fallen trees. Some roads were impassable for close to a week after Hurricane Rita...
