Rodney,,, with the very tight and limited storage in my 16 foot bambi,,,also it has no oven,,, the rotisserie, toaster oven/broiler which i plug in at the dinette table works great. bakes, roasts,, and does a mean chicken, pork loin or small roast. you will be glad that you brought it along. it is stored in my under the bed storage container, which works out fine. large pots and pans go under too,,,, great fun,,, donna

hi all

funny how many of us drink box wine.
it's great stuff. i do also like to gather grape from local winos....i mean wineries' too, so i end up with a few bottles while traveling. the bottles fit nicely in the liquor cabinet that roadkingmoe has airstream build into the long trailers.... i put a cozy or sock over the bottles and interlace them with plastic gatorade jugs...no breaks so far.

the lexan goblets are great but i like glass too. since i'm short and stemless, i like to drink my wine from regular short water glasses like often served in bistros...these glasses are pretty bullet proof resturant style...duralex-lumarec, made in france is my favorite brand. i also have grown fond of sipping wine from a coffee mug (airsteam) whenever out of doors in a dry zone....

since i haul a gas grill in the truck the rotisseries seems redundant, but i do carry a large stainless pressure cooker.....this will do stews, spuds, roast, birds and so on quickly and makes better use of the lpgas. comes in handy boondocking when not grilling outdoors and also serves as a big pot...

cheers

Talking What's a Lexan? A native of the state of Lexus?

Sometimes when I listen to 2air' I think I'm hearing my echo. Duralex? Exactly! Especially this style: http://www.villagekitchen.com/mfg/bo.../picardie.html

We keep some of the perforated non-skid mats clean and use them to snake around glassware in drawers.

But box wine? Quelle horreur! I will bring bottles and all readers have a certain appreciation of items silver .... check out http://www.campmor.com, item #82068 -- only set you back $5.99 each. They are light, elegant, durable and need neither Walbernize nor Nuvite!

That makes three of us for Duralex. Our favorite glasses at home are the 6.5 oz and the 16 oz Picardie. Very classy, but a bit heavy to tow don't you think?

what can i say canoe stream....... mediocere minds think alike!!

the 'picardie style' is what i like too, i just couldn't locate a pic.

the 2 smaller sizes fit inside each other with a non skid wrap between them. and they do work well for wine or single malt...

silver huh?
i don't have those, but i do like to carry a pewter mug for beer sipping!

cheers

Smile Safe transportation of adult beverages/suitable containers

Well the last time we were camping down south these nice fellas came by they had some milk jugs in the trunk of their vintage tv they were sellin this tasty liquor at a real good price, and we used these vintage containers to sip outta... Those fellas sure are creative and economical too! Look at the way they save money on manufacturing and packaging?

JStanley -
You got a picture of this Macintosh wine bottle holder? Sounds like one of the better uses of an old Mac. I've heard of folks putting a fish tank in the old Classics but a wine bottle holder is something new.

Anybody else use a pressure cooker for this? How does it work out? Being a boondocker at heart I like the idea. But I wonder, when using a pressure cooker, how much pressure do you want, and for how long, and do you have to stir? Are recipies readily available?

i still use moms 50 year old presto...new ones are available, and reciepts are available. its just a tool of convenience that has been supplanted by the microwave. if you can use a light meter, you can use a pressure cooker.....

Thanks to Road King Moe

.... and to get this thread back on track a wee bit. I reread RoadKingMoe's list of all lists and one item caught my eye this time - nesting pots & pans from Camping World. In a 22ft CCD, you definitely don't have a lot of left over space, and what I currently have in the way of pans doesn't include a decent skillet or a big soup/lobster/spaghetti pot.

Well I've been looking on QVC, in the stores etc, but never spotted anything that made sense to me, but after looking at the Camping World website I decided to order. I'm eagerly waiting their delivery. The reports on them were all good, so hopefully it will work well. There are two detatchable handles shared among 5 pans, collander lids and extra plastic lids so you can actually store the food in the same container it was cooked in.

The closest Camping World store is in Manassas VA; less than 200 miles from here but I chose to order online. Too much temptation if I went there personally

I have the nesting set. Mine has 4 detachable handles. Best money I have spent in a long time. I caught an on-line sale by CW at about 1/2 the price they were asking in our local store and free delivery at that. Apparently, when I was shopping, the manufacturer made some changes and CW sold all the existing stock real cheaply.

The quality is great and the cookware has really heavy bottoms that work well in spreading the heat of gas burners.

receiipts

to give you an idea of cooking times, potatoes in jackets(baking size)....15 min.
rutabaga(diced) 3-5 min.
i personally feel a lot of the receipts were "dreamed" up to sell the cooker. if you are a retro addict, you could probably find a nice avacado green one at the local flea market. here is one amusing selection:
porcupine meatballs

1-1/2 lbs ground beef
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1 tsp salt
1 tb minced onion
1 can tomato soup
1/2 cup water
combine into small balls, heat soup and water in cooker add balls to soup. cook 10 min. with pressure regulator rocking slowly.

i also have one for fish on a plank
