Cooking Off-Grid With the Rocket Stoven While Camping

DIY_Preparedness_Off-Grid_Cooking_Baking_Rocket_Stoven_Stove_Oven

I’ll just start out by saying that I love my Rocket Stoven!  It’s a Rocket Stove with a collar that allows me to add my stove pipe oven to it as well, thus it’s a stove and an oven, “STOVEN”.  I may actually enjoy cooking with this more than my cast iron Dutch Oven cooking!  We saw this demonstrated at a Preppercon Expo and decided to purchase one. (I am not affiliated with the seller or maker of this product). I will include a video of the demo I recorded at the bottom of this article.

Mobile Rolling Kitchen Chuck Box for Camping and Emergencies

Chuck_Box_Rolling_Emergency_Kitchen_Kit

We went camping this October as a family as one last time to be together before my daughter headed out. It was a fun experience, yet I learned that I could be much more organized. We were making a Dutch oven dinner and dessert. I found that all the various items I needed were in different containers, on different tables. Often we were turning around asking where this and that was. It made things a bit more tedious than it needed to be.
