Cooking On a “Deadwood Stove” and a “Thermal Cooker.”

Today I put the Deadwood Stove to the test and decided to make one of my favorite dishes, chicken curry.  The only source of fuel I used during the entire cooking process was a lighter, some paper and a bundle of dead sticks.   No gas or electricity was used at all!  Below is a series of pictures that shows the ingredients and cooking equipment.  I used a small enamel pot to cook on the Deadwood Stove.  First,  I cooked the chicken in olive oil for about 5 mins, then I added the rest of the ingredients and brought the entire pot to a boil for about 3 mins.  The food is then poured into the thermal cooker inner pot and then that pot goes into the outer pot.  The ingredients continue to cook in the Thermal Cooker for about 3 – 4 hours!  Remember, after the food is brought to an initial boil for about 3 – 4 mins, it then continues to cook in the Thermal Cooker without any heat source!  The Thermal Cooker maintains the ingredients at a temperature sufficient to continue the cooking process!

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
