Gear Review by Crankshaft Culture's Mercedes Lilienthal

When you think of camp cooking setups, what do envision? Do you think of the two-burner Coleman stove you inherited from your grandpa, or the heavy cast iron pots and pans you lug along to make your camp meal?

What’s Your Preferred Cooking Method?

I am quite sure everyone loves to eat while they are overlanding, but what do you use to cook?

For the longest time we just used a Coleman 2 burner stove during our adventures, and that seems to be norm in the community. Although when my husband heard about the TemboTusk Cooking Skottle, he would not stop talking about how he wanted one. Well, I ended up getting him one for Christmas last year.

At first it just sat by our backdoor waiting for the warmer weather of spring to use for the camping season, until, one day, he decided he should probably test it out before we actually tried it on a camping trip. Well folks, cooking outdoors has never been the same or with such easy cleanup!

Cooking with Farm Equipment

Cooking With Farm Equipment

By Scott Hunt

In this, our latest (and only) episode of "Cooking with Farm Equipment" we will be tilling a field prior to sowing our crops using a disc harrow borrowed from our friend, Jerry L'Ecuyer... This important implement will not only break up our soil, chop up old weeds and crop remains, but later it will also help us make one hell of a good cheeseburger. You heard me.
