    Cooking without fuel

    Has anyone tried these gadgets, or similar methods

    Heylo Bags | Energy saving thermal cooking

    I like the idea of cooking long and slow without having to be present to mind the fire/gas

    Thats pretty interesting and NZ made ! even better.

    Im thinking it could work well in camp to start a meal and leave it for when you arrive back late and hungry in the dark.
    I guess if it was cold you could also heap some spare polar fleece cloths around it or slip it into your sleeping bag to increase the insulation and pre warm the bag.

    Looking forward to hearing if anyone else has used them and if they really do work.

    Looks to be a variation on the good old bean bag.

    Can't see why it wouldn't work.
    @Pengy buy a couple, try them out, and report back.

    Cheers

    Get some "aircore" pots, doubled walled. Heat up using the temp gauge on top, turn off and the latent heat cooks the food. Use it for soup all the time, better than pissing round with bags!

    Sure, guys. That's called cozy cooking.

    You have those small microwavable single serving macaroni and cheese, rice, beans, whatever over there in NZ? I carry those fishing. My wife crocheted me a cozy that they fit in, so all I have to do is dump in boiling water and close the cozy.

    I'm given to understand that thermal cookers are popular on private ships and such when the galley cannot be attended all the time, and where a lot of the cooking is done with relatively low BTU alcohol instead of more dangerous fossil fuels and their gasses.

    This type of cooking is excellent for lightweight camping as well. You have to carry less fuel and dirty fewer dishes.

    Regards,

    Josh

    Not a new idea Pengy. I first picked up on it in my much prized cookbook circa 1986.

    These work brilliantly. I have a few of them, 3 pots, 1 frying pan (unused).

    take ya dolly bird hunting and stuff a pie down each bra cup,or if youre a he man wear two pairs of jocks -the outer pair to contain the pies.
    now a good brisk climb up a mountain side should in theory generate enough heat to cook said pies so you have warm snack when you finally park your exhausted arse /arses.It is a possibility that said pies could be soggy ,but again for the more elderly of us ithelps them get past our ancient false teeh and tonsils and slide down the gullet.
    pengy a fishpie would be ideal for you
    course if youre a toff youd pay R93 to fly in a complete buffet to be enjoyed at sunset!
