Pancakes in a Lodge, using a Dragonfly.
@Cookie it was just some tomatosoup. Not my favorite, but my kids really enjoy it. Luckily for them it was "my part" that ended in the stove
today, i used me hexe stove, comes in 2 parts, on FB, only way i can post, as i got cut off
Beef, noodles, dehydrated vegetables and a little seasoning fried with a small piece of bacon. Today, health was sacrificed for deliciousness.
I was near a small creek with my new to me 8R. It's my first Swedish stove and an absolute joy to use. I named it... "The Swedish Fireball".
@pyro_P I almost bought a Dragonfly but ended up with the Nova + instead. I bet the Dragonfly cooks well
@CRAZY CRAB I haven't used any tablet fuel since the military days even though I have stoves that come with the additional equipment for Esbit tablets
@pipenfly That key looks like it's ready to burn some fingers. I have found that I am quit fond of 8R's and 111's. I have never tried Old Bay on bacon...hhmm that is an interesting combo
@Cookie The key sure is a finger burner when the stove runs for a while. The obligatory "next stove" will be an older 8R with an older style valve tool. I'm realizing that there is always the next stove. I'm very much wanting a good Swedish 111 Triple Fuel at the moment. Also, I think Old Bay is a great hiking/camp seasoning. A little goes a long way, it can be put on almost anything to make it tasty, it's a good (but painful) antiseptic and the tin can be used if need be. Very multipurpose stuff when out and about.
Today I decided to make my breakfast on a Companion Sver stove with a Svea regulated burner. It preformed well as usual. Cheers Rob
Today it was the METTAS EARLY kooka a gassey with a patient date of 1920, I don’t know what date it was actually produced. I did my breakfast on it this morning as most other meals. It works really well. The oven has some quirks but we have got used to it. I think Fahrenheit in stead of Celsius is part of the problem.
@Robert Bruce Oh that Kooka looks real nice. I also like the regulated burner on the Companion
A little history on the METTAS stove.
It was from a arctect friend of ours. He did a job for some people in Sydney, a redesign of their kitchen, the owner could not throw away the old stove, so it sat on there varandah for some years. The owner would not take anything for it, just pick it up. He knew it was going to a good home, that was all he wanted. So a trip just for it was made to Sydney. I had to dismantle it to get it off his varandah and get it to my Ute. So when home I converted it from town gas to lpg gas, it needed only a clean up from sitting so long. It sat in my garage for some years knowing it would go in our hut. The hut was all dismantled and in our shed at that time. Now the hut is built and the stove installed.
@Cookie I would say, the Nova & Dragonfly burners are very similar. I also have the green tanked 111 with Nova burner.
My Dragonfly is a 2000 vintage, and still performs very well, especially on simmer.
Vintage races at Road America, Dragonfly stove, GSI pressure cooker. Wild rice, carrots, mushrooms, onions, and chicken.
Served in seasoned 14 inch rolled steel gold panning pans. KM
You don't see a GSI pressure cooker every day of the week. Nice work Mr Butthead.
Lovely dual-use tableware, too.
That was a rainy evening after the races, the whole meal, prep time included took 30 minutes. KM
I have been thinking about those pressure cookers for a group meal.
I use a pressure cooker at home. Kuhn Rikon brand. Brown rice, 1 cup rice, 1 and a half cup water, 15 minutes cooking, and then the time to cool the pot off enough to open. So easy and fast compared to my old method. Beans, the same way. Much easier, less water, and quicker.
I know for outdoors it compensates for the higher altitudes.
Fired up the 96 today and made some lima beans and smoked hog jowls
Took the Trangia like stove out for a ride/hike today and came across some small wild trout. (they all swam away with a sore lips) enjoy Daryl sunny SoCal
Leftovers converted into breakfast hash this morning, and coffee via the Pyrex percolator, on a 413. Previous owners named their stoves, and no I didn't pay asking price.
