primitive cooking methods

Any suggestions? I'm thinking the old coleman stove but would prefer to do so baking(eg.egg whites shredded coconut, spices-type of stuff). I have no idea how to bake without a stove and will be living in rudimentary conditions '4-life'. Fires are a hastle and permits are needed. Any equipment or supplies for the bake and other forms of cooking?

They're cast iron, so out in the open they would rust like crazy. On the other hand, rust won't kill them any time soon; they are quite thick. Under cover outdoors they would cope somewhat if you kept the outside covered with grease. Not good for mobility unless you have a chuck wagon to haul them in.

Size really depends on what you'll be cooking in it. They bake much more evenly if you get one with a lid that can hold coals, and for what it sounds like you want to bake, elevate the baking pan away from the base. So look at how much room you'll need for that.

Any specs on size? Can they be kept outdoors in a rainy climate? I'll be in BC near the US border just off the coast.

Cool. I will be relying on solar power so that will be a good fit. Thanks guys.

Yea, you could learn how to use an old-school cowboy style cast iron dutch oven and cook with coals. But for that you'd obviously need a fire.

Dutch ovens for when the solar power is off, If your stove is large enough, although better with a fire.

How about a solar oven? Commercially manufactured ones are pretty pricey, but there are many DIY instructions if you google.
