    Lightbulb What do you cook with while out 4x4ing

    Yes we all go out 4x4ing, somtimes we camp and somtimes we stay in a self catering cottage or house, but what apperatus or fuel do you cook with.

    I find that when I go camping I use LP gas to boil the kettle for coffee and hot water for the washing, however I like to make a fire and use a K..... Pot do not know any other name for it, maybe can call it a three leg pot? and then of course just braai on the fire.

    I have heard of people who drive V8 Range Rover vehicles, they have wrapped some food in some tin foil, then they place this wrapped food in the V of their engine and there food with the heat of the engine gets cooked while they are out 4x4ing during the day.

    I have started this POLL so that we can all see what other people do and what fuel they use, with the LP gas I also use it for my lights at night time.

    Add and post your comments please.

    Pretty much the same as spike except we usually cook extra at supper for the following day...

    Tend to use charcoal more than wood, but when we use wood we always cart our own - we never use the wood from the veld

    I am the first to wake up and there's nothing better than to get that fire going and put a kettle on the coals and have a "lekker" cup of coffee and take in the peacefulness with just the sound of the crackling of wood burning early in the morning before everyone wakes up!!

    Braai vleis in die aand en koue braai vleis die volgende dag, met n bier tussen in.
    Met daai 2 kan jy ver kom.
    Die braai vleis is op n regte vuur gebraai, of n pot.

    Breakfast - 'Koffie en beskuit' and some kind of cold cerial for the quick up and go. For stayover days, lekker bacon, eggs and toast on Cadac(to keep the colesterol up)
    Lunch - Cold meat, cheese, provita and salad. This is the missus trying to keep me healthy. Usually end up eating last nights left overs.
    Supper - Last Bots/Caprivi trip we were away for 30 nights, braaied 29 of them on wood fire. Always on the lookout for wood. Driepoot for the pap.

    It is called a Cast Iron Pot. Reminds me of this story:



    Koos walks into the camping store in this little small little town in the Freestate. Says to the salesperson: " Gimme a No 5 K..... Pot en maak sommer gou ook!"

    The sales man says to him: "But Sir we don't call this a K..... Pot. In the new SA its called a Cast Iron Pot."

    Koos pays and tells the salesman: " Tell your Cast Iron to go and load my K..... Pot on the back of my bakkie en sÍ hy moet spoed vang!"

    Nothing like a braai on a wood-fire in the evenings. In the morning left-over braaivleis/wors shopped, mixed with beans in tomato-sauce, onions and left-over potatoes, on a cadac skottel. It's gastronomic!!!!

    This is getting a bit like the "braai" thread under hobbies.

    One of the stalwarts when we travel is an aluminium espresso pot on a gas cooker or sometimes on the fire. This is one of the best ways to kickstart a day.

    The other winner is a hot wheel gas braai.

    A few ears ago I did a lot of hunting trips for customers and would choose sites without facilities, that meant fire for breakfast , brunch, lunch and supper. And that coffee machine is the winner or some coffee bags in a pot.

    .....we call those black pots "houtpotte" ...he,he
