Back in the 80's, I attended a big (over 200 people) steak cook-out at Texas A&M. There was about an 8' diameter circle of stones containing a glowing bed of mesquite embers and a long table with various cuts and thicknesses of steaks. The cooks had us point out which steak we wanted and tell them how we wanted it cooked. Then the cook would just toss the steak directly out onto the wood embers - no rack, no grill, no foil, no nothing - and used long-handled tongs to turn it. When it was done to our liking, they grabbed it off the embers with the tongs, whisked the ashes off of it with a little brush, and laid it on our plate. Then we proceeded down another table with baked beans, sliced onions and thick buttered toast. No steak sauces (sacrilegious!). The only seasoning was salt. Great cook-out, "cowboy" style!!

A great way to cook them.

We have done similar when out fishing and hankering for a snack. We start up a small fire with sticks that quickly burns down to a small layer of coals, and lay the fish on top. Once flipped with a stick, then within a few minutes fresh caught trout munchies.

If you want to go low tech for cooking, check out the food videos by John Townsend of Jas Townsend and Sons over on Youtube. He's got some great 18th century recipes and techniques that are perfect for outdoor cooking. The rest of the videos are fascinating too.

Takes time to heat water to boiling, then to build up steam pressure. It is the steam which provides the heat and pressure to cook fast. Once it is up to temp and pressure, the containment vessel holds it pretty well.

And by then my salmon, steaks, Italian sausage, or chicken breasts are already grilled, and I am sitting down to eat.

Though there are those times that we do bake in the oven or on the BBQ that do take more time.

Perfect timing on this. We pick up our 21 on July 10th and my wife absolutely insists on bringing the Insta pot as she loves using it at home. They definitely save some time at meal time. I did not know about making cakes in them, need to try that. Thanks for the info.

So what does the Victron 700 do for you that the monitor that comes with the inverter doesn't already?

The Victron or TriMetric battery monitors place a shunt in series with the battery(ies) that monitors all the current going into & out. It uses this & time to calculate the amp hours used or returned to the batteries, providing an accurate indication of the state of charge of your system. Not all that necessary if you do most of your camping hooked up to pedestals, but very useful if you spend extended times dry camping.
