Re: Adventures in rice, beans and bulk dry milk storage

James does a lot of open fire cooking and with few kitchen 'tools'. All of which should be studied by preppers, campers, Scouts and anyone else that cooks 'outdoors'.

The 'cooking kettle' (Dutch oven) cooking episodes are of interest to me.

When first married, the wife and I would go 'garbage picking' at the local dump of her (very rural) town. Mostly for AL...
