Greetings! Well, we just returned from an extended trip and we were thrilled to see Hikin’ Jim post about dry baking with Bobcat Cooking System using the Epicurean Titanium Stove with Esbit.
We are glad to see people interested in dry baking. At FLAT CAT GEAR, we developed a particular dry baking technique and you can use this technique with equipment that you already own. Below is a link to a video on how to do this. The trick is being able to tune your stove to a steady 100 watt output. We developed this technique as a safe way to bake when using titanium pots.
Note that tuning a stove output can be tricky, particularly when using an alcohol stove. This is due to the thermal feedback from the pot and windscreen (Esbit is far less sensitive to this type of feedback). This is a good DIY project, however; if you are looking for a more turnkey system, we are offering Backpackinglight members 30% off the Epicurean Titanium or Epicurean Titanium UL15 stove through the month of May. Go to our website (www.flatcatgear.com), order your hardware and BEFORE making your payment, add the comment Backpackinglight30%. After your order is placed, I will send you the 30% refund.
