Trying Out a New Cooking System!
« on: April 11, 2013, 12:30:23 PM »
I've ordered a Bobcat System from FlatCatGear!  I am very excited as this alcohol (or Esbit cube) stove is very light and allows for simmering and baking.

To simmer/bake one has to add the simmer ring to the above set, as well as the baking kit, which includes a carbon fiber insulator/trivet and a 4" baking dish; I got the 5" baking dish, too!

We've started dehydrating/vacuum packing our own meals for the trail so Sandi can still have her gourmet when en route. It takes a while to bake a muffin, but I am looking forward to one when in the Quemada next!

This is made and sold by a small business in California, which works just fine for me!

I'll update this thread with a review once it comes in!
Ah Big Bend, we will soon return to reacquaint ourselves in our ritual of blood, exhaustion and dehydration. How can we resist the temptation to strip ourselves of the maladies of civilization?

Interesting and simple design.  Kinda reminds me of a sterno stove I had once, once.

Looking forward to the review!  Although I'm pretty stoked about my Jetboil I got from the REI member sale last week for 20 bucks! (Thanks Rey!)
