    How to have a warm lunch after many hours sitting in a frozen tree stand? Before I leave the truck I rubberband one or two hand warmers around a can of ravioli or chunky soup. When I return{usually mid-day} I have a nice warm lunch.

    Why not just pour hot soup, stew or ravioli into a thermos? Then you can pack it into the field.

    Many, many years ago, after freezing most of the morning during a late winter bow hunt, my buddy & I returned to my Dad's borrowed truck to warm up & get something to eat. We got the idea to put a can of Dinty Moore beef stew on the engine to warm up. Sounded like a good idea, until we feel asleep & got woke up when the cans of stew exploded!! We smelled stew for 6 weeks, every time we drove the truck.

    muzzleblast.......that's an old trick we used to do on heavy equipment during the winter months, trick is to poke a hole in the top to let gasses escape. I have seen the results of not doing that also. lol

    Every GI knows about heating food on an engine, yes with the holes.
    These new turbo cookers with the canned fuel are great for a quick HOT meal in the field. My buddy had one on an elk hunting trip and it boiled water in 30 seconds and we just added freeze dried whatever. Now one resides in my duck boat dry storage, no more frozen sandwiches and tepid coffee.
    The only problem is that they are spendy for all the accessories.

    I used my Coleman canned fuel single burner stove as a heater and could cook on it too. Ray

    FB, That is the difference of us being young & dumb, & now we are old & dumb!!
    My Dad still mentioned that stinky truck & that happened 42 years ago. All good hunting memories aren't about the animals.

    I had a buddy with truck, boat, and family who would pack the hot dogs in tin foil and lay them on the valley created by the intake manifold of his inboard ski boat. After a round of water skiing for all who wanted same, they'd anchor the boat off shore in any of the N.Calif. lakes and enjoy the dogs without ever lighting a fire or packing a BBQ.....breakemall......Bob Dodd

    What you all need is a Benghazie Boiler or Volcano Boiler. i have one. It will heat 2 quarts of water to boiling and heat cans of food all in under 4 minutes using twigs, grass and paper. It's a neet tool and one I wouldn't be without.

    You could always drink the squeeze and throw the soup out. But... It's probably not to good for you.
