We have one of those in your second picture Rosco and they are really handy as they fold down to nothing in a hessian bag. Great stuff!!!!!

OH......and I'd really love one of those kettles...so much character,,,really looks the part.

Not sure what brand ours is Rosco, my hubby bought it from a guy on ebay that made them.

I can't find him on there but found these and they look pretty good plus they also have the tripod.

Wait!!!!! I just found this great page online and it looks great.... :armsup

He also looks like he makes something similar to what we have....this guy has everything. ::()

Also Derek (who is a member of this forum) is the king of campoven cooking and his webpage is great too. Derek would be the guy to ask for any campfire cooking question.

Not sure where you can get the big kettle tho?

Thanks for your big effort there xmasbaby....Unfortunatly I also found that one when I was going through the different sites.....they look a little bit like 'shop shelving stands' to me....and the tripod one really only holds one pot,,,,,still....I'll keep looking but as I said....a BIG thankyou.

Well...I finally got off my bum and went and bought a pkt of '2 rolls' of the bags for our Bag Sealer....I firstly visited Aldi and was told that they haven't had then in stock here in Strathpine for around 8 months,,,same answer at Coles,Target and Robins Nest...they all sent me to Woolworths...YES...I did get them BUT had to pay $41-88 for them (2 x 67mtr roll pack)....I nearly feel out of my shoes at the price....
Does that sound similar to what the rest of Aussies paying ????

Cheers

Yep....which is why I go sparingly with mine. Some seem to buy them on the internet but as I am not that trusting I pay dearly for them as did you Rosco.

About $40 for 2 medium rolls of 20m each on Ebay. Which doesn't sound cheaper than what you bought?!

Over Easter several nights I cooked Derek's lamb shank in red wine on a bed of polenta, and it was fan-bloody-tastic!

On our last trip I pre-prepared the food for the first night and treated my friends to: Bombay beef curry (made from scratch at home and frozen) with mint chutney, cucumber raita and tomato kachumber prepared the day before. And cooked my jasmine rice on the spot. I'm always good at cooking rice when camping.

Unfortunately, some friends arrived late and by the time we ate it was dark and because we never use a lamp, you couldn't see what you were eating!

Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Sorry, just kidding. Sometimes I just can't help myself :***
It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.

:*** Rick. I can tell you that putting a fork of pure mint chutney isn't the most pleasant experience. It's awesome mixed with curry though.

Rosco, that makes more sense. I remember thinking that 67 metres must be a massive, very heavy roll! And I'm happy to know that my Ebay buy was a bargain after all.

YUM that curry sounds yummy Lin. :+

At least you would have fresh breath after a forkfull of mint chutney!!! :+

We looked at one of those vacuum sealers at the Sydney Show but are still thinking about whether we would get the use out of it?

Keep an eye on Aldi XB, they have them from time to time. Have also seen one on special in Myer from memory for about $69/$79.

I must admits... I was so enthusiastic about the vacuum sealer but have hardly used it so far! And didn't use it at all for my last camping trip.

I think it's because of the requirement to freeze before you vacuum. Once I put it in the freezer, I forget about it.
