Wow thats even bettor miram, but I hate to say I don't buy beef out of a grocery store. Not this cowboy!

I go the freezer and get a much bettor made in my back pasture home grown american wyoming made fresh angus beef steak.

you sure don't know where in the heck the steak in the grocery store came from probaly is from argintina with hoof and mouth and besides I can beat with taking one of my own cows to the local butcher what the grocery store would charge me any day.

any way with my own slowcowboy made beef steak,. I will now have to try your auntie m delicesos recipe and the one that just burst my gut recipe form bob henry By the way you guys coming to any teardrop gathering near by that I can be at and sample you cooking. I will furnish the fresh beef for a trade. Heee! I think both of your guys steak cooking is up for a try in the future. and I will be printing. thank,you a million. both of you guys. I wander if I can repurdeuce them meals with out sqrewing up. Slowcowboy.
Plans. there was supposed to be plans to be followed when I built this thing. Opps! AH, gee, tum,tee tum. I think I forgot about the plans 2 years ago. ------Tow vehicles, 1995 ford explore, 1994 ford ranger, 1993 ford F-150, 2009 4x9 Off road teardrop, on harbor freight greatly modified frame.

Just stumbled across this Ingrid party ball on Etsy. Unused, and a decent price...thought I'd pass it along. I'd scoop it if I didn't already have two. Just the same, someone please buy it to save me from myself. :shake hands:

I bought 2 off of e bay for around 30 bucks. The first one was mising parts and I wanted a complete set for 6 hence the need for the 2nd.

Walking thur Goodwill there was a 3rd not quite complete set for $5.00.

I grabbed it I have 2 trailers and now each has a FULL set and I still have spare parts if ever needed.

I'm still a car camper at this point; haven't begun building my trailer yet, but I did buy a hitch! My car-camping requirements are complicated somewhat by the fact that I drive a Miata.

My basic list is as follows:

- Tent
- Blue tarp (I use it as a ground cloth)
- Inflatable mattress
- Sleeping bag and pillow, plus a fleece blanket for colder evenings
- Folding table (got one of those 28x28 slat-top tables from Target; works fine for my needs)
- Director's chair
- Two-burner stove
- Coffee percolator (mine came from REI; at $35 it was expensive but it will probably last the rest of my life)
- small saucepan (for heating a can of soup or chili, both of which are camping staples for me)
- 9" nonstick skillet (for those days when I want a hot breakfast)
- cooler for storing milk, eggs, and most importantly, BEER!!
- cooking utensils of various types
- aluminum foil, small zip-top bags, etc.

Once I have a trailer, I probably won't expand this list much (at least not at first). Part of the attraction of building a trailer is the fact that I can leave most of this stuff in it between trips to the track (auto racing, not horses ;) ).

I have found checklists to be absolutely essential as a car camper. There have been just too many times where I've realized I forgot something after I was already an hour or more away from home!

lol ok heres my list of minimum.

a dutch oven.
two sauce pans , on small one medium.
a frying pan or griddle.
a wok.
stir spoon /serving spoon.
good old kitchen knife.
cooking fork.
2 burner coleman.
can opener.
aluminium foil.

i also just bought a smokie joe charcoal grill, 14" to use with the dutch oven when fires are not allowed or possible.

the fun thing is to see what other people bring, it changes depending on what they like to cook. everyone has something different they wouldn't leave home without. :thumbsup:
