Dear Filthie,

I am in a real pickle. Me and my fellow harelipped retard friends, Jack and Pete - have been fishing and hunting together for years. The problem is they like to use green friendly fuels for the campfire - buffalo and cow chips mostly. I don’t mind the snap, crackle and pop of the peanuts and corn in the fuel… but it imparts an off-taste to anything cooked on it. I had a soy steak and tofu dinner ruined by it, and need a better solution. What do you recommend?

Your best friend,

M 


You were right to bring this problem to me, M! 

Of course I recommend the clean burning, environMINTally friendly Jet Boil! High yield iso-butane fuel maximizes BTU’s and minimizes cooking time! Reasonably priced and affordable - the Jet Boil is endorsed by the Tofield Special Olympics Shooting Team, and is the official camp stove of famous novelist and explorer - WL Emery!

If any of you have difficult questions regarding outdoor gear and equipment, my expertise is at your disposal in the comments. 

😊👍

  1. Soy Steak and tofu?? WTF??? I never go near that shit...
    I see you learned to make your coffee at home and bring a thermos instead of fussing with the satanic fart boil... sensible solution.

  3. Why a jet-boil ? I mean, if you're out in the woods you're supposed to be there for the slower pace and solitude. Staring into the fire as my water boils has always provided time to reflect and just feel ALIVE. Nature has it's own pace.

    1. That's a great comment, Chuck. That is why I started watching The Men With The Pot on JewTube. We all want lighter, faster, more efficient gear - and in the case of the ultralight backpackers and backwoodsmen... I get that. But as I get older I start thinking that you can go the other way too and be better off for it.

    2. I had a pile of the lighter faster stuff, but as I got older my wanderings weren't as far any more. My "walks" these days are not too distant and my pace is slower. The extra weight is not a bother any more...

  4. My waifu bought me a jetboil as a Christmas gift last year. One of the local outdoor channels on YouTube we watch together (Chris Bamman) uses one all the time. By contrast, I was given a Trangia metho stove for my 21st birthday by my parents. More than 30 years later (and many many many adventures) that Trangia is going strong. You can still buy them, and they are almost identical stoves today. I guarantee that won't be the case with the jetboil. Its OK, it boils water pronto, but there is so much more than that to camping, bushwalking and generally living outdoors in Australia. Reliability and simplicity are everything when you are in the remote parts of the bush here. Lovely marketing on the jetboil website though.

    Am I getting curmudgeonly to notice that it is all aimed squarely at early 20 urbanites and the go-grrl / pretend outdoors chick set?

    Cheers,

    Just another curmudgeonly "anonymous" Aussie reader

      shhhh, don't say that to loud or you might offend ol-Filthiecus.. he's having a mid life crisis and thinks he's one of them.... ;-)
      I've tried repeatedly to point out the error in his ways, but I think its a lost cause. The thermos is a step in the right direction though, so let's just count our blessing for that.
