There are many tools and techniques for cooking without electricity. DH and I have been experimenting with the EcoZoom Dura and Versa. They are products that produce a very fuel efficient stove top (rocket stove). The Dura uses wood or biomass only. The Versa uses wood, biomass, or charcoal. We live in a heavily wooded area and have found these stoves to be a good alternative.

For more information, I have reviews on The Survival Mom's website:

That was interesting. But concerning electricity...

I have been looking at wind, solar and electromagnetic powered electricity.

We now have the technology for each individual to provide his own power without having the huge companies suck our wallets dry.

They are suppressing that information and the average person just goes with the flow and allows them to bully them into thinking that they need them in order to survive.

Sadly at this point i also am willing to be bullied but i know better.

I hope that i can break out of the rut someday and get the stuff and tell them good bye! Siyanara and arriba derchy.

I am serious... it is sickening what Corporate America is doing to us.

I have an outdoor wood burning stove/ oven. I have a small one in my garage and I have the old time style fireplace in my house with the iron swings to hang pots in the fire. I'm simple

I have several wood/charcoal/butane grills, smokers, & flat top.

As long as I can get natural gas, then I have electricity.

There are several methods of cooking off grid.

From: rocket stoves, grills, camp stoves, solar ovens, etc. Many can be purchased or DYI.

Keep the ideas coming. And remember the prepper's Rule of 3. Back ups for your back ups!

I have a Coleman Roadtrip special edition grill with built in wheels and it uses the small propane cylinders.

I love, love, love that grill!

It has interchangeable grills or griddles and if i want i can hook it to 20lb propane bottle.

The grills r so thick they wont dissolve in a week like others

The small cans last for a long long time too.

Gosh i love my grill!!!

And remember the prepper's Rule of 3. Back ups for your back ups!

I have always thought this is a waste of resources and only for the most sophisticated of Preppers.

If I were to follow this rule for Prepping, I would be homeless.

Sure, for route planning or escape planning or even mental preparedness, great, go to the 3 rule.

But, I am not backing up my backup (if I even have a backup) because I an struggling to get the 1st one to begin with.....

I will have myself covered, but if something craps out, I just may be screwed.

I do think you need spare parts for your guns, but other than that, 1 of each is my rule until I win $12 million in the Lottery.
