Three burner SS cook top, gas grill, nesting set of Colman Peak pots/pans and plates, small Mr Coffee and electric fry pan for when we have shore power and a see through 25# propane tank so we do not run out. French Press for coffee when we do not have shore power.

Since I am always camping solo, I have a few "regular" meals that are always on my menu...pre-scrambled eggs fer breakfast with flour tortillias( egg burritos) or instant oatmeal. When I feel energetic, I cook up sum sausage links to go with breakfast.

Lunch...usually premade(at home) tuna with string cheese and sweet pickles thrown on top and I scoop it up with Ritz crackers(less dishes..no fork)

Dinner...usually Dinty Moores beef stew or sum beans... maybe chili and hot dogs

My weapons of choice are a ( don't shoot me) 2 burner Coleman , propane stove and a single burner butane. When I do sum "serious " cookin .. it's in my DO !

I also have a small BBQ and always have charcoal in case I wanna have sum burgers or a steak....

I camp mostly by myself or with one or two grand kids,,,,I keep it pretty simple,,,canned beans or chili and smoked sausage for dinner,,,unless we catch some fish....maybe eggs and pancakes for breakfast,,,sometimes on the propane stove,,,sometimes on the white gas coleman,. I camp light as the ranger has about two horsepower, so alot of cast iron is out. Maybe my 10 inch DO or cast fry pan. I do want to try that enchilada casserole recipie and maybe a small roast in the DO this season maybe at walk the winds....Did biscuits and homeade sausage gravy once when camping with family but really cut into my fishing time. Sometimes carry a small kettle bbq and some charcoal if I bring burgers, dogs, or steaks.

If there is electric, a crock pot is a must spend most of the day busy, so we just set up a crock pot with dinner in the morning, and by dinner time its ready to eat. Saves a lot of time.

I have a built in propane stove, but I found out it is not very good in windy conditions, so i also carry a Coleman white gas stove, it works very well even at subzero temps, I am seriously thinking on removing the stove in the TD and replace it with a Coleman stove, and take advantage of the extra storage space and less weight.

I am just starting to play with this. They are called rocket stoves. There's a lot of videos on youtube about them. My first test run boiled 2 gallons of water in 27 minutes with less than half of an average piece of split firewood. I think I can do better by adding a ring of flashing around the pot to keep the heat/exhaust next to the sides of the pot as it rises. Down sides that I see right now is that it is heavy and somewhat bulky and it puts soot on cookware. Up side is that it operates on twigs or split wood and uses relatively little of that, so it would save on/eliminate the need for propane. I think it will be nice for wok or skillet cooking and heating water for showers etc. Curious to see if anyone else is using one and how they like it.

We ate pretty good on during our trip to California this year. The usual favorite of steak and tomatoes:

Added a new item to the camping menu, pizza on the grill:

:thinking: If I am alone I rarely cook....Now I have a microwave, a toaster oven that came with the Green Lantern. A 2 burner Coleman propane that I don't like a lot, a single butane I love and a Cast Iron Dutch Oven which I use in the fire if I have one. And yes I forget the charcoal often... :x

Oops: I also discovered precooked hamburgers cook really great in the truck window in a zip lock bag. Was only trying to be sure they thawed.....got a burned hand when I lifted them from underneath. :twisted:

I've been fascinated by these stoves since I first read about them. Especially the larger versions used to heat larger areas...running the exhaust through cob....

They do work, but the trouble is, to me anyway, camping chow usually consists of a good slab of critter. The rocket stoves just done get hot enough to put a serious sear on the stake. But for other lower temp cooking, they work well.

The stoves also work well using scrub twigs and sticks. It's too bad you can't burn that kind of stuff at state parks, where we camp most often. I hate to break up a good loge to boil water....
