    Actually, in the US there are several regional styles of barbeque (the method, that is). Besides the Texas bbq, northern Alabama and North Carolina both have distinctive styles. I'm sure there are others.

    I'm back :content:. Temps were 28°F at night with a 16mph wind on the first night and 34°F on the second night with an occasional wisp of a breeze. The eleventy-one performed flawlessly in all aspects. It cooked the steaks on Saturday just fine and made lots of coffee. We cooked over the campfire on Friday evening hence no additional meal or stove pics. I prefer my steaks medium rare but the wife wants them dead as a doornail. My buddy cooked some fine pork chops on the Primus Omnilite Ti using white gas. The primus also did not have any issues. My other friends used my gifted MSR Windpro 2 with Coleman brand canister fuel with great success. I will post a trip report soon in the members section.

    Eleventy-One with steaks and a glaze made from the drippings and marinade. Side dish is yellow rice.

    Pork Chops with smokey mosquite seasoning on the Primus Omnilite Ti stove. He had mashed potatoes with it as a side.

    I just cooked three dishes in the small park near where my live, not a typical or ideal camping site.

    Using Optimus Svea 123r with Petrol, also prim using Petrol, it makes a little smoke at the begining , but works brilliant , easy to control the fire .

    Dishes are very tastly, especially for the Shrimps and Egg, they are almost all finished by my two year Daughter. She used to not like these food at all prepared at home, maybe she love this kind of outdoor Cooking.

    This year, We will definitly have more chances camping with the Svea 123r.

    Thank you Ed, Cookie. I love this forum, and particulary love to read the stoves being used with family.

    I fired up the Optimus 45 today and made some homemade creamy chicken noodle soup. I cheated and used bullion instead of breaking out my homemade chicken broth because I save that stuff for when I'm sick in the winter. I realized at the last minute of the video that I was holding the phone vertical and tried to correct it but the phone didn't want to comply.

    Tonight was roasted chicken bone broth with mushroom tea as the base. I finally got to fire up the old pyrex tea kettle for the first time and try it on my new eleventy one.

    Making the base gravy used in British Indian Restaurant style curries.
    You make big batch then portion it and freeze for use later. The windscreen lives outside so is a bit scabby. The Svea 106 is ideal for the job, keeps the mess and smell out of the house.

    Lovely day, so naturally, the first real picnic of the year; and there was the prerequisite tree hugging activity... A Trangia and a Manaslu front and center... Herself and Daughter #4 keeping everything civilized... 01A569A2-6077-4740-8FA9-0065AF8995FE.jpeg 426EC8B8-A8F0-4749-8D4B-88F0666BEFD7.jpeg 0948D6C7-7E94-42F8-8135-4EE4B413B069.jpeg
