  • Single Pot Bush Cooking Kit

    What is your go-to setup for a single pot packable cook kit for traveling in the bush? I use an aluminum pot and a four dog bush cooker. I am still on the hunt for the "perfect" aluminum or titanium pot that's about 1L to 1.5L in size. What would you recommend?Click image for larger version

    Heavy Duty I'm still looking for the right setup myself, but I am curious about your Bushcooker stove. Which size do you have there, and do you feel like you got the right one? I found myself on Don's site again today, looking at them... again.

      I do feel like it's the perfect size. I can fill it with wood, and have about 15-20min of good burn time plenty enough for 2 heats of water in that pot. First heat for re-hydrating food, second for hot drinks. I do have a smaller one that I haven't used yet. I think the stove is spot on, just not sold on the pot.

        My kit is generally a bailed 2L pot with lid, and a cool handle or other such camp skillet... I only heat water for tea or oatmeal, and I only make frybread or fry the odd fish,,,

          I would recommend you Snow Peak Trek 1400 got mine like a decade ago no issues, Using it on gas stove, camp fire year around. doesn't have bail you should be able to nest your pictured pot and stove in it

            I like the Mors Pots which I get from Four Dog Stove. They have a couple of different sizes. They have both a handle and a bail and the lid snaps in place so it won't come of if the pot tips over.

              For 3 season camping, I use the GSI Pinnacle Soloist cook kit. It's a 1.1L hard anodized aluminum pot, nesting bowl and spork, lid. The carrying bag also doubles as a wash basin. For winter camping my cook kit is a GSI Halulite Ketalist kit and a small 8" frying pan. I find the larger surface area of the kettle makes water boil faster on a woodstove than the pot in the Soloist kit.
