    After a long search and experience i find that foor cooking indoor or outdoor, an inverted tlud with gaseification is the best.if it creates electricity like same new stoves on the market even better....you can use twigs, the burn efficiency is close 99% smell and smoke is very little...
    Any other ideeas?

    Regardless of how good an item is, for travel, I don't need to be carrying any extra weight. I carry flint,steel & tinderbox for making fire, & a cook kettle. That is all I NEED. Anything else can be made as needed.

    The best way to cook when you are living off the land is to put whatever you find in a pot and boil it. I watch people on these survival shows broiling things over a fire when they have a pot and just shake my head. The fat turns to liquid and ends up in the fire and the jerky you end up with has half the calories of the original piece of flesh. Like you Kieth for light travel I use a sort of kettle. Actually it is a fairly large coffee pot that I threw the guts away. It is light has both a handle and a bail and a lid. Also soups, even thin ones are easy on your stomach and the last thing that you want is to upset your stomach in the bush.

    If you are just camping I like to make shishkabobs and always carry stainless steel skewers. I have about one of any sort of stove there is other than the one that generates a little electricity. The gasifyers are massively efficient and smaller and lighter than rocket stoves they are great for boiling water for reconstituting dried soups and such but not so good for simmering. The little tiny propane jet stoves are nice as are the little alchohol stoves you make from aluminum cans but are dependent on fuel that you have to haul in. I also have a couple of twig stoves and while they don't get as hot as the gasified stoves they do simmer better.

    If the wood is easily available and there is no reason not to have a nice fire it is hard to beat a bed of coals and a folding grill.

    a pot with water in it, what we call a Billy can, over a fire, is by far the most simple method, unless your going to go totally stone age and do away with pots all together:p

    Agreed. Meat can be roasted on a pointy stick, & ash cakes can be made in the hot ashes or on a flat rock.

    Open fire stew:D or stake straight on the Coals. Can’t beet that. You could wrap the meet up before placing it on the fire. Still I like charred on the outside and med-rare on the inside :D

    Aluminum foil makes for some great and easy meals. We used to take "hobo dinners" when we would go camping. A ground meat patty with a slice of onion slices of potatoes and carrots wrapped in foil and put on the coals. Foil is a survival kit all to itself.

    I don't like foil in the countryside, we get enough refuse left lying about without adding foil to the equasion.

    When I go to the woods I leave no sign that I had been there. I include foil in all my small kits. In a bind you can boil water in it. Too many uses to count.

    The thing about grilling or roasting in a survival situation is that the fat that is so important and hard to get ends up dripping out of the meat and into the fire. If you have plenty to eat this isn't a problem but if food is scarce you don't want to waste any of it. The other problem with grilling and roasting over an open fire is the small. If you are hungry the smell of flame broiled meat is massively enticing and may attract attention that you don't want.

    When I go camping I usually keep a pot of soup going almost constantly. As I find or kill things they are added to the soup. The longer things cook in a pot the more that you get out of it. If you boil bones long enough even the bones become eatable and the marrow is another thing that you don't want to waste.

    During the good parts of the year food is pretty easy to find and getting all you can from it isn't so important but in the dead of winter or in the dog days of summer food sometimes gets hard to come by and that is when a big pot is worth the hassle of carrying it around the rest of the year.

    I must admit that roasting is my favourite way of cooking meat, unless it is fowl. Fowl I like to add to a stew. One time when we were on a trip we shot some ducks for the pot. Later that evening the stew was ready & we all sat down to a meal. Part way through my meal I came across a frog's leg! There were a lot of frogs about as we were close to water. I said nothing to the others;)

    Lordy I love frogs!! When I was a kid we ate them all the time. It wasn't unusual for me to catch as many as 50 in a night. Some I sold and some we ate. LOL, fried frog legs for Sunday lunch was a favorite during the summer.

    I'm with you as far as my PREFERED way to cook and eat most of my meat. I have a big smoker that will do 110 lbs at a time with sausage racks and 4 trays. I also have a grill and a steam smoker for doing birds. When I'm talking about boiling thing in a pot I am talking about getting the most out of what you have when food is hard to come by or when you are trying to keep things down low.

    I do like soups though and in the winter months I usually cook a pot of soup at least once or twice a week. It cooks all day, helps warm the house and smalls SOOOOOO good. We also eat a lot of beans and rice. The way I cook it is more like a soup. I start the pot off with either bacon or ham and once it is seared I dice and toss in a couple of onions and saute them in the grease from the bacon or ham. When the onions are translucent I add the beans and a couple of whole jalapenos and water and let it simmer for a few hours. I then throw in some rice and cook it for a couple more hours. Served with hot buttered cornbread this is a great meal and we usually have enough for a couple of days.
