Survival Skills #5 Cooking Without Power
Cooking Without Power
#1 Use a grill, hibachi, Dutch oven, or camp stove (this must be done outside and can require special cookware)
#2 Prepare “heat only” foods like canned soup, stew, chili or “just add water” foods like instant soup or oatmeal on a canned heat stove.
#3 Prepare raw foods or canned foods that do not need heating (This will only work for a short time)
#4 Prepare easy to cook meals on a one burner butane stove.
#5 Cook over open fire or open hot coals.
With cooking after the event of doom you will need a good camping style stove and at least one of not two one burner LP stove. I like to go by the rule of three, Have three ways to do anything you will need after a disaster. I have a camping stove, two LP one burner stoves and two butane stoves. Now I know that I will run out of LP or butane at some time, but I do have a very large stock of both. I have about 45 to 60 days of cooking fuel, that’s with three meals a day. And if I start right away to cook with open fire and hot coals I will stretch out my cooking for an undetermined amount of time. The whole idea of becoming prepared is to be ready. To help you hit the ground with both feet and able to run if need be. Times are getting bad and it will only get worse. Get your house in order and pick up some new skills. If you have never cook in the outdoors take a day and go to a park or lake and cook yourself and family a meal and do this every week at least once and try new ways each time you go. I promise it will not be long and you will be a skilled outdoor cook and if the power ever go out, (And it want be long) you will be ready to cook for you and your family.
Remember the New World Order never sleeps, so keep your eyes open and your ear to the ground. Because they are coming and the only people who can stop them are you and me with the help of other great Patriots of this country. Stand strong and be ready!!! And Question your leaders, now and forever!!!
