Griddles are one of the most versatile pieces of cooking equipment out there.  They can transform your everyday camp stove into a multi-tasking machine, allowing you to prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner all on the same setup.  Once properly seasoned, their non-stick properties are second to none and, if treated well, will last multiple generations of outdoor adventurers.

Get Toyota Cruisers & Trucks Magazine on the App Storedownload_nowEvery once and a while a new product comes to market that you never thought you would need and once you use it a few times, you never want to leave home without it. Therein lies the new Dutch Oven Camp Table. Taking your cooking from the fire pit to the grand vista is a rewarding culinary experience. Cooking in a Dutch Oven is an exercise in patience and finesse but the rewards are vast, as they have been known to end wars and begin friendships. At the very least, they can provide the user with a great feast whether it be a mid-morning snack of deliciously warm cinnamon rolls or evening meal of pot roast.

Pulled pork breakfast tacosThe beauty of this dish is the simplicity of the Roasted Pasilla Cream Sauce; which can be prepared ahead of time and pureed in a blender, for a smoother consistency, or prepared in the field for a more rustic consistency.  Pasilla chilies, also known as poblano chilies, can be found in most grocery stores and are identifiable by their shiny, dark green color and heat-shaped profile.  Pasillas produce a mild heat when cooked and are as versatile in their use as this cream sauce is.

Ingredients:
•    1 tablespoons (1/8 stick) unsalted butter
•    1/2 cup chopped onion
•    1 pasilla chile, charred, peeled, diced
•    1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
•    1/3 tsp salt
•    Dash of pepper
•    8 – 6 inch corn tortillas
•    1lb pulled pork
•    6 eggs – scrambled
•    1/2 cup Pico de Gallo
Serves 4


Directions:
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the diced pasilla chile and cook for 1 minute to blend flavors. Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until reduced and the cream coats back of spoon, about 6 minutes.  Transfer the sauce to a bowl and let cool.  Makes 3/4 cup of sauce.

Assemble the tacos by placing 2 oz of pulled pork onto a heated tortilla and top with scrambled eggs, 1 Tbsp Pasilla Cream Sauce, and 1 Tbsp Pico de Gallo.

The forested Oregon terrain attracts folks who enjoy the outdoors, as well as those who wish to reside in the remote wilderness. As a result, situations can develop requiring coordinated rescue operations. These operations can span many miles from base to rescue resources. To avoid a breakdown in communications, temporary repeaters are necessary to bridge the airwave gap. Cory Smelser of Portland, OR, serves as a volunteer communications technician, and plays a vital role in filling that gap.

2nd Generation 4Runner Search and Rescue, HAM Communications

Cory participates with a search and rescue (SAR) group that specializes in emergency communications. His 1992 4Runner 4x4 has evolved into an ultimate off-roading communications response unit, as well as a rescue and recovery rig. With a solid front axle, rebuilt rear suspension, and low gearing, his truck is the ideal remote access vehicle.

Let’s face it; no matter how hard you try you are going to get dirty when out in the field.  As well as baby and wet wipes work for a couple of days, nothing beats an honest to goodness hot shower to clean up and feel ‘civilized’ again.   I chose to go with the Helton Hot Shower kit from Cruiser Outfitters to provide on-demand hot water for our showering needs.  Always one to tinker, I chose to not use some of the supplied components and, instead, created a custom setup that seems to be working better for my needs.

There wasn’t the violent surge of the vehicle as one might expect. There was a subtle thump of the rear tire that signaled something was wrong. A quick inspection proved a flat tire, further inspection the spare tire was also flat.

Vehicle Survival Skills

With the light rain turning to snow they jumped into action. In an already cramped single-cab pick-up they couldn’t huddle together, and the steel of the rig would only rob them of precious heat. While one quickly collected firewood, the other two set about making a shelter from a tarp found in the back of the truck. Soon the three were bundled close, as a roaring fire projected heat under the small tarp. The next morning a passing truck stopped to help. They survived a night where temperatures plummeted into to single digits and light snow filled the forest.

As many of you know I was a long-time holdout, not wanting to ditch my trusted cooler and ice for a 12-volt fridge freezer.  I am stubborn and, even as the number of cooking classes we began teaching increased, did not think I needed a 12-volt fridge.  It was not until my good friend Josh stopped me and said, ‘What are you doing?’ that I really took a step back and thought about our setup.
