How much pot should I bring?

Postby TT120 » Thu Apr 04, 2013 10:17 am

I'll be cooking for 1 or 2 people and was wondering if I should bring my 2, 3, 4, and 6 qt pots and maybe even a dutch oven type pot or just go with the little 2 qt and the big 6 qt pot. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I'll probably bring some frozen chili and other pre cooked and frozen goodies to heat back up.

Shame on you for thinking what you were thinking.

I've found that you can never have enough pot at the burn. As long as you keep them in your private space and only use them for personal use. You don't want to share your pots with strangers cause they might steal your pot or worse, report you for distributing edibles with out a permit. We bring 3 to 4 different kinds of pots.
Its good to have small pots for personal use, or large pots for large group use.

There really is no 'wrong' type of pot at Burning Man.

I don't thing the amount of pot is your biggest issue, but rather the quality. You don't want to waste good pot out there where it might be stolen or "borrowed" by others. Cheap Wal-mart pot is just as good as expensive All-Clad pot.

John, I don't know about you, but when I always cook my pasta and rice with pots.
I haven't yet mastered grilled pasta or rice yet.

it really depends on what youre cooking.

this is what ive used for years as my kitchen that has been suitable for 1-2 people.

Image

Image

i dont cook many things that require boiling, so i only use the smaller 'pan' of my cooking set.

if i was doing stuff that needed boiling water, or was cooking for 2-3 people i would bring both of the the small pots along as well.

Image

just a standard backpacking kit.

i prefer non-stick/very well seasoned stuff out there, unless a dish requires otherwise... ..stainless has been a pain in the major ass to clean when yer trying to conserve water/graywaste in my past

TT120, go to a thrift store and buy a nice Non-Stick pot or two. Non-stick is easier to clean up. I'm paraphrasing a wise man, "Just wipe it out with a paper towel , spray with a bottle of water with a small amount of bleach, then wipe out with a paper towel. No need for a dishwashing station. Same for utensils. :D " Also if you plan on feeding others, have folks BTO plate, cup, etc.

Lemurs idea is a good one too!

We don't use pot. We have a propane stove/oven and heat everything in foil lined foil pans in the oven, or boil water in an old coffee pot. No scrubbing, just toss the foil and re-line the pan. No boiling rice or pasta, if we bring it, it only needs heating up, or, gasp, just add boiling water. Okay, so we do use pot, we just don't have cooking pot.

The less dishwashing, the better.

The only pot thing I make is chili for the chili cookoff. Every thing else is grilled. Steaks and veggies basically.

Indica pot makes me paranoid then I fall asleep. Me no likey. Next time you're in the market for an outdated skillet, go for Sativa brand. It's much better.

I'm not wearing pants

For cooking, I'm bringing a Jet Boil Flash. I'll boil water in the morning to add to my oatmeal bowl. At night I'll boil water and add it to my freeze-dried backpacker meals. For lunch I'll eat an energy bar. I lose my appetite in the mid-day heat. For late night roams...more energy bars/nuts/etc. No, not those nuts. I don't swing that way.

Probably all depends on how big the lighter is you're using to cook the the pot with. I figure if you're going to bring a lot of pot, you shouldn't bother bringing that camping pot stuff, but rather something decent so you can get a handle on it.

Ah, but my Indica skillet already has a dent in the bottom which fits my head, and it puts me right into a much needed deep sleep -- me having struggled with sleep-deprivation for 20 years.

A small Sativa skillet might have merit for my one-egg breakfast -- me being retired and simply walking out to my "art studio" in the barn most mornings.

Those Jet Boils are really nice. I have one and it will boil 2 cups of water in about 3 minutes at 4000 feet. They're great for those Mountain House dehydrated foods. I also got the French Press coffee thingy for it that packs inside.

I have one of those Indica pots like Elliots but mines not dented. I think I'm going to look for a sativa pot and see if that will be better for cooking spagetti at 3:00am.

Jumping on the bed, hyperventilating, and spinning in circles is free and unenforceable unless your mother is on playa.
