Now, in an apocalypse you’re not going to have tons of food items. It’s not like you’re going to be able to walk to the store and grab what you require. Your options are going to be very limited. Plus, no electricity. I can already imagine the panic.
So what can you do? Well, go back to basics. You’ll have to cook over a fire. Because let’s face it, not everyone is going to have a solar fed cooking unit or portable generator. Plus are you going to be able to lug around a generator on the run from the zombies or have the time to wait for your meal to cook in a solar powered stove?
Although, you probably wouldn’t want to carry around a pan either BUT at least it can double as a weapon. Just bash that zombie that is after you in the skull. But, I digress.
A pot to cook your meal is going to be one of the items you’ll want to bring with on your trek to find safety. Then you’re going to want to create something for your pot to sit on that will keep it above your flame. On this site, you can create a wire stand. (Bonus, you can always use the wire as another weapon.) You’ll also need to wrap something around it like tinfoil to create a windscreen. I’m not a huge fan of this model.
I really like the first one in the post that has a tin can with punctured holes along the top that you can sit the pot on. For my characters especially, this would work a lot better (especially since they don’t have access to all the material of the other method).
Or you can create a pyramid to hold a dutch oven over an open fire. To find out advantages of cooking in cast iron, read the article here. Do you camp? How do you cook your food? What tips do you have for eating during an apocalypse?
