After my last show with Debbie Kent of Peace of Preparedness and listening to her suggestion to have at least three alternatives for cooking food, I took stock of what I had and their fuel sources:
1. sun oven – sun, of course
2. gas grill – propane
3. Coleman stove – propane
She also talked about a Volcano Stove. There was a discount from the company this month, so I ordered one. With the Volcano you can use propane, wood or charcoal. Last night I went to Walmart and purchased a charcoal chimney so I could be more efficient with the charcoal.
While there, I browsed the clearance section and found little battery-operated fans. They were priced at 75 cents each, so I bought a few to throw in my survival kit. Might be nice to have if there’s no electricity and the weather is hot!
This is a good time to take stock of what you have to use if there’s no electricity. If you’d like to hear more, listen to the interview with Debbie here:
Each year in the United States millions of people lose power for three or more days. When this happens, you want to be prepared to eat something more than cold chili out of a can. Joyce’s guest today is Debbie Kent. They’ll discuss several options for cooking and even baking when the power is out.
