If you are like us you put a lot of work into getting ready for each hunt. You burn a lot of energy along the way moving tree-stands or taking the long way to your stand to ensure you don’t get busted.  You put all this effort into your hunt and at DSC00370the end of the day you are Hungry!  Many times when we travel or even hunt near home we do NOT have an outfitter cooking for us.  So, it is up to us to cook and prepare a meal.  I am all about EASY, FAST, and TASTE.  That is why we have      started using the CanCooker’s because they cook a meal fast that is healthy and tastes really good.

What I love about the CanCooker is it allows you to cook a lot of food without a lot of work.  CanCooker makes a complete meal, in about one hour.  What is really cool is the CanCooker works on any heat source – campfire, camp stove, propane stove, charcoal or gas grill, turkey fryer, stove top, etc. and it’s easy to clean up! This makes CanCooker or the new CanCooker Jr. ideal for camping, hunting, fishing, tailgating, family gatherings, picnics or any outdoor get-together.  Beyond being convenient and easy to use.  You can be creative on how you cook your food with a variety of All Natural Seasonings that are available to cook Chicken to Seafood.  Some of these include an All Purpose Seasoning, Butter Garlic Salt, Creole Seasoning, Onion Pepper and Seasoned Salt Seasoning to ensure anything you cook tastes great.

When I first got my hands on the CanCooker Jr. I was amazed how well it was made and how SIMPLE  it is to use.  One of the things that make it so unique is its revolutionary one-piece “shouldered” design:

  • Creates convection, which circulates the steam for faster cooking
  • The circulating steam also helps keep food from sticking to the inside of the CanCooker, which makes clean up remarkably easy
  • The food that comes out of CanCooker is fresh and very flavorful and it maintains its natural flavor better than other forms of cooking
  • This is because the steam does not leach away the flavors and nutrients. Everything comes out tender and tasty. Nothing comes out dry

Here is how simple it is to use:

  1. Load it and Seasoning if desired
  2. Place it on the heat source and wait about an hour
  3. Food comes out piping hot and ready to eat

Yes it is that EASY.  I was a bit surprised just how simple it was to use.  Yes it tastes good too…..  It’s one thing to cook something fast but for it to taste good.  Well, that is a beautiful thing when you are Hungry.


How the CanCooker Jr. Works:

seisCanCooker Jr. cooks with steam and is very healthy. As the liquid reaches the boiling point, it turns to steam, which, because it’s lighter than the cooler air around it, begins to circulate inside the CanCooker. This natural convection helps to   cook the food inside your CanCooker even faster. It also keeps food from sticking to the sides, which means extremely easy cleanup. CanCooker is made out of a food grade anodized aluminum, which is extremely conductive.

This means more heat gets transferred to your food, as well. The anodizing is important as it means the actual aluminum never touches your food so it’s totally safe! You’ll be amazed at the food that comes out of your CanCooker. You might assume it would be mushy, a bit bland and the flavors all mixed like with a conventional crock-pot. That’s not the case. The textures are dosfresher, the flavors more real and the food better maintains its color and nutrients. This is because the steam does not leach away nutrients like boiling. So, everything comes out tender. Nothing comes out dry.

When you are done the CanCooker Jr. is super easy to clean.  Once empty and cool, just clean with soap and water. Do not use abrasive pads as these will scratch your CanCooker, which could affect performance.  Once clean you can store it in it’s case and you are done!

I highly suggest the CanCooker or CanCooker Jr. as it is portable and perfect for those 2-3 days hunts.  We can easily pack it and travel with the CanCooker Jr..  We will be using it on several hunts this fall including a mountain Coues Deer/Mule Deer Hunt in September.
