Butterfly Cooking Stove Directions For Use

The best dinner I ever had was a tinfoil dinner. It had hamburger, potatoes, and carrots in it. In addition, there was corn on the cob that was cooked, in the husk, over the coals and peach cobbler for desert. Perhaps part of the reason that the meal was so good was that we hiked long and hard all day long. At the end of the day, we finally got our meal cooked around midnight. We cooked it long and slow and just enjoyed being outdoors.

Since then, I have often thought about the pleasure of tinfoil dinners and the emergency preparedness side of them. It is so easy to make a tinfoil dinner. You do not need a bunch of pans and there is virtually no clean up. You can cook tinfoil dinners over almost any heat source. In fact, the fire, the kerosene stove, or the kerosene heater, or the inside or your car, on a hot day can all be ways to cook. For these reasons, it is a great idea to just have some tinfoil in your disaster preparedness storage.

Tinfoil Dinner Tips


1- Spray the tinfoil with nonstick cooking spray or butter or oil to keep vegetables from sticking.

2- Use a double layer of tinfoil for added strength.

3- Crease the edges and seal the edges well so that the marinade stays in and the flavor too.

4- Cut up the items small and it makes them a lot easier to cook without burning. In addition, it will take less time to cook.

5- Get creative. There are lots of different ways to do it. Some people like to use burritos covered with chili and others like rice with sweet and sour pork. You can make a lot of different foods taste great and be easy to cook with tinfoil.

6- Use a timer to keep track of how long it has been on each side. You may want to turn the dinner over every five minutes.
