Google Seth McGinn's CanCooker - Cater to your Crowd - Slow Cooker - Crock Pot - Steam Cooker and you'll get all the info you desire. Can cookers, volcano cookers, there are any number of self contained cooking systems out there. I think once you master the temperatures, cooking times and recipes with the right moisture content all work, just a matter of personal choice.

I think you meant something else, but coming from the ultralight backpacking background, I thought of these "pop can stoves". Google it if you are interested. It makes a great project to do with kids about science and safety and they love eating the food off their stove.

I purchased our CanCooker Jr. on Amazon ... and the rack is a must. Do understand that if you aren't a fan of pressure cooker-type food, this may not be for you. That said, my husband, who doesn't like food cooked in a crock-pot, does like the meals we've had from the CanCooker. Go figure ...

Hi: All... I always use the can method of timing a 10-12# prime rib on the spit. Usually three cans of beer'll do it!!! Alf

Can Cooker

Hey Escape Artist,
Took me two Sam Adams just to cook a butterflied pork chop on the Weber Q tonight. Hormel,boneless pork loins, 10 lb average on sale this week locally for 1.49 American per lb.
never used a can cooker but I do have a mid 50's little miss Barby Q, which is a cast Aluminum pan with stainless steel wire supports and a stainless grill made for charcoal. Sold for like $2.00 back in the day. Cooks well especially when it's dark and I'm under the influence and can't see. I was in Idaho in the late 60's when a drunk logger ordered a steak in a restaurant we were at. Waitress said "how do you want it done?" He said "Just run it by, I'll cut it off." That's rare.
Dave

No wonder I never recognized the method, I drink my beer in bottles.

It takes a few to deep fry a turkey too, you gotta have something to do when watching the pot.

Oh I just love the YouTube videos of people using those outdoor burners to deep fry things

I have done dozens or turkeys, a few prime rib roasts, and hordes and hordes of sweet potato fries in my deep fryer setup.

Don't this look oh, so yummy?
