Burns wood, charcoal, and propane… http://www.crisiscooker.com/
In an emergency situation, 25 pounds of charcoal briquettes will cook two meals a day for up to 3 weeks.
Because of the design… it’s almost impossible to tip over
The unit carries a 5 year warranty against manufacturing defects
When using briquettes, you can be cooking hot meals in only 5 minutes.
Powder coat finish on 18 gauge steel makes it almost impossible to scratch.
Ultra efficient heating system means 12 briquettes will give 2 hours of cooking time.
Any size frying pan or griddle can be used.
Up to 18 quart pots can be used for boiling water, soups, and corn on the cob
Easy to clean. Just dump the coals and wipe down the interior.
Adjustable air valve allows you to roast, fry or sizzle with complete control over cooking temperature.
If you can find a few pieces of wood, you’re ready to cook.
Comes fully assembled.
Can be placed on any surface.
Instant set up in any location.
Switch from charcoal to propane to wood in a matter of seconds.
Powerful 30,000 BTU of heat when using propane.
Cook two meals a day for three weeks with just a single bag of charcoal briquettes.

Looks like this is sold in America. Would like to know if its any good. I bought the OzPig (Australia) but it has a chimney

I wouldn’t, it might be infectious. Blaaaa Just threw up in my mouth a little. :shock:

That crisis cooker would be a handy addition. I’ve got a wood stove and gas stove (not portable) and a grill for open fire places, but that little stove could probably be used in situations requiring a little more sneak. Can you let me know if you find one in Australia? Could we make one? Doesn’t look too hard to make and it doesn’t have to be exactly the same.

sounds neat but i bet it is for outside use only, there was a vietnamese couple that killed themselves using something like that after the last ice storm took almost everyones power out around here cause they used it to try and warm up the house and cook. so if it is an outside only thing??? then just scratch up some fresh dirt throw a couple logs(stick what ever on) fire them up and your in buisness, got to move out piss on it and scratch another at the next sight.

I have cooked with propane for years, as long as you have the right jet settings and there is not yellow flame then you can use this cooker with propane only in doors. It will be no different then a propane heater, with the exception of your cooking. But any old working 3 burner stove out of an old camper will work great for that. I have one now we hook up when the power goes out. This is often here in the sooner state.

greekies is the way to go. :D -----------if your in the book the road :D

propane devices ok, here is some advise to the young ones ect. read the directions and safety warnings reallly read it- we just had a father and son suffocate using a propane heater in a tent -- so if you cna't use it inside then don't.

Thanx everyone for the sound advice. Looks like this cooker is only good for outside use so I would be better going for the ozpig. http://www.ozpig.com.au/

I was thinking that propane will be in short supply later on so wood may be the way to go. :)

A very interesting thread thanks. I guess we should have on hand a couple of different ways of cooking.
I'm investing in solar. But what if there's no sun! :shock:

Found this interesting article on heat retention cooking
