2009 Cooking Contest Entries
« on: March 06, 2009, 06:11:49 PM »
I used my Swedish Military Alcohol Stove used in the early 40s by the Swedish military. Some times called the Swiss Stove. These can be found all over the internet for $10 or less. Some made from aluminum and other's from stainless. Mine is stainless bought brand new. There seems to be no limit to these things. You can buy the entire set or individual pieces. I used my Strike Force mag stick to light the fire.

I use denatured alcohol in mine as it seems to work best. The entire meal used only one filling of alcohol. It will boil two cups of water in 5-6 minutes. From beginning to end the meal took 35 minutes from set up to finished meal. I bought the packets at either dollar general or big lots for $1.50 each. Rice and chicken and instant potatoes. After adding the rice to the boiling water I placed the lid on for seven minutes to finish it than fixed the potatoes.

The entire meal costs a  little over three bucks counting the small amount of alcohol and was filling for two people. There was no carbon or blacking on the bottom of the pans at all.

This is a new program to Image shack so Ill try it. You can click on each picture to enlarge it>

Ok, here's my entry:

Bushkabobs:


.73 pounds beef stew meat;                                                      $2.77
1 pound portabella Mushrooms (too early to pick any)   $2.99
2 tomatoes                                                                        $1.69
2 medium Red Potatoes                                                   $1.50
1 bell pepper                                                                    $1.00
¼ Onion                                                                           $0.50

Total cost                                                                         $10.45 plus tax

Food prep time       20 minutes
Cooking time 35 minutes



First I made the skewers from some hedge trees in the area.







Then I set up a wind brake around my fire and grilling area and laid the fire with split apple wood on bottom.





Then I got the fire going before I started prepping the food. The wood was damp so it didn’t burn too quick. I love the smell of apple wood burning.







This is the veggies I started with, some mushrooms, bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, and potatoes. The skewers, and some of the tools I used.





I sliced up the peppers and tomatoes first.





Then the mushrooms and meat, and then the onions. And started putting it on the skewers





The Bushkabobs ready to cook








And then on the fire, I put the extra meat and the potatoes on seperate skewers.









Thirty-five minutes later…dinner time. I even whittled out some chopsticks to eat with









Careful it's hot!





 Happy Cooking!!

Who eats dessert in the bush?  Uhhh   :unsure:    :whistle:

Ummmm....did you just steal my reply again....this time one that actually had words in it....or what? You're quoting something I was pretty sure I wrote...but that I don't see here anymore. So...now I have to write part of it all over again  :glare:

They didn't have much of an odd taste, mainly the taste from the apple smoke, but then again I'm used to using hedge for cooking sticks for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows.....
