I spend every possible minute outdoors either fishing, backcountry camping, mountaineering, boating, or paintballing/military training. For every one of these activities I bring my Jetboil.  I don't know if there are any other forum users that also use the Jetboil system, but I wanted to share some simple recipes and cooking ideas with y'all.

Breakfast

Cheesy Grits

Instant Grits
Shelf-Stable Cheddar Cheese
Bacon Bits or shelf-stable Bacon
Heat the desired amount of water to boiling for the amount of grits you want via the directions on the packet. Stir in grits and then add cheese and bacon and stir till combined.

Lunch

Tuna Carrot Casserole

1 Packet Tuna
1 Large Carrot, sliced thin
Egg Noodles
1/2 Onion
2 packets mayo
French Fried Onions
Boil water and cook egg noodles until tender, dump out most of the water but leave some. Add in carrot and onion and heat until fragrant, stirring continuously. Once water is evaporated, add in tuna and mayo and combine. Top with crunchy french fried onions.

Dinner

Taco Chicken Wraps

1 can white meat chicken
Taco Seasoning
tortillas
avocado
tomato
freeze dried corn
Add corn into JetBoil and cover with water, bring to a boil. Dump out the water. Drain chicken and add to cup. Add taco seasoning. Cook, stirring constantly, until warm. Serve on tortillas with slices of avocado and tomatoes.


The best part about all of these recipes is they’re great for a multi-day hike because all of them involve foods that don’t need refrigeration. There are tons of resources out there for freeze-dried food recipes that will give mileage to your JetBoil. With a little planning and experimentation, you could make almost anything with a JetBoil.

Welcome Ozark! Baptism by fire -- you're learning the most important quality in being a member of this forum: sarcasm!

Those recipes look pretty good, actually very similar ideas have been discussed here before. FYI there's a sub-forum just on backcountry cooking, recipes, etc.

JetBoil users: there is a core of loyalists on here and a bunch of others who poo-poo it away, same as anywhere else. Your recipes look like they would work for a wide variety of cook systems, not just JB.

Freeze-dried corn doesn't need to be cooked to rehydrate. Soaking it in cool water works just fine. ;-)

I have 2 jet boil stoves and three pots - the sumo titanium, sumo regular, and a 1L companion cup.

I also have several other backpacking stoves, including pocket rockets and SVEA 123R

I've never used any of them for anything other than boiling water, then using the water in a separate container (now usually a steamer bag inside an insulated lunch bag.)

Seems like all that cheese and grits and sauce would make a hell of a mess in the pot.

Also, I was told by jetboil that you shouldn't cook food in the titanium pots.  Use the titanium pot only for boiling water.  In fact, the jetboil website has it in all caps on their website:

After 3 years and hundreds of cooking hours I still absolutely ADORE my JetBoil Helios. The most efficient stove I've ever used. (And I've pretty much used 'em all.) And yes, it actually can cook VERY well. That said, to actually cook in a Helios the windscreen MUST be attached, and you need to have exceptional vision. Huh? What's that he said? Where does having exceptional vision come into cooking? Here's where; The flame required to cook on a Helios is SO incredibly tiny that it is truly nearly invisible. But that's all ya need. With a pale blue flame 1/8 of an inch high and about as big around as a dime I can cook bacon, eggs, perogies, SPAM, glorious SPAM, fish fillets, hash browns, ya name it. That Jetboil Helios can even hold a BakePacker steambaker (with a little persuasion) and produce an enormous 8 inch diameter muffin, or 5 more conventional sized ones. (Again with the flame turned almost to nothing.) So yeah, JetBoils can  cook. You just have to have the patience, the dexterity, and the eyes to see and control a minuscule flame. I love cookin' on my Helios, and that breakfast posted by the OP is gonna be getting cooked on my next stomp. Hooo-ya!!!  Droooollll...

Cheers!

Yeah, and I haven't been there enough of late :D

It is funny...I have multiple JB's. But I never take them. I always end up with my Snowpeak and a simple HAA pot - that is wide and shallow. Easier to clean.

You need a gallon sizes freezer bag, some light italian dressing, a fish grilling basket, and a hardwood fire.

Fish go in the bag with the dressing, drain excess, then in the basket, then over the fire for just a few minutes.
