Who uses them and what do you cook them over? (grill, fire, charcoal) Post up your recipes!
I have the Can Cooker Jr. at home and we have the big one up at the cabin. We’ve used them over a camp fire, gas stove, and electric stove. It doesn’t really matter, it’s an easy meal no matter where you use it. Pick up the rack that goes in the bottom, it’s worth it. We’ve done beef and venison stew, chicken breasts with veggies, and that type of stuff. But my favorite recipe is linked below.
i've never seen one or used one.
what's the benefits, and what makes them unique?
It’s kinda like a cross between a steamer and a pressure cooker. It makes the food juicy because of the steam and cooks relatively fast and makes the food tender because of the pressure cooker qualities. I love it for deer camp because we can cut up all the meats and veggies when we come back after the morning hunt. We throw everything back in the fridge before we head back out for the evening. When we get back from the evening hunt dinner will be ready in 45 minutes. All we have to do is light a camp fire or throw the cooker on the stove. You can use it over any heat source. By the time we wash off our face paint, pop open a few beers, and debrief the hunt, dinner is ready with next to no work on our part. Just keep the cooker over medium/low heat. Plus everything for that meal is cooked in one pot (the Can Cooker) making things easy on that nights dish dog. It’s perfect for deer camp but I use one at home occasionally too. It’s an easy, all-in-one meal every time.
I gotcha. Might have to check them out. Thanks for the info
We have the CanCooker JR and love it. We use it on the stove in the house since it's small enough. I don't really go by a recipe, just kind of go by what I think will taste good and what works together. The last time we had shrimp, turkey, sausage, mushrooms, corn cobs, carrots, potatoes. Marinated the turkey in Italian dressing, used some Shorty's Cajun seasoning, and a can of crappy beer.
I love cooking omelettes in mine, they come out perfect every time.

Dayyyummm, that is genius lol
you've never seen that before, TJ? It's cool, huh?
An omlette in a baggie? lol nope.... bet even my wife could pull that off!
I can't lie, I didn't know about it till about 5 years ago. I've used it a fair amount since then. The best thing about it is that everyone can build their own to their liking. Label it with a sharpie & cook!
I didn't know about it until I bought the can cooker and thus my years of sad omelets were over

I have the Jr . I have use it a few times . I really like it. I wish I could get the omelet link to work,
My favorite for the can cooker is to line the bottom with halved cobs of corn standing on end, then a layer of small red potatoes, next is brussel sprouts, followed by one Kielbasa and then one Andouille sausage. Final layer is usually boneless chicken breasts that have been thawed. Dont use frozen I made that mistake once. I like to add a cajun seasoning, a stick of butter to melt down over everything and a bottle of Leinenkugels Summer Shandy for the liquid. That will easily feed 10 people and everything comes out juicy and delicious.
