Whether you are cooking for 5 people or 15 the Seth McGinn's CanCooker can make any guy or gal look like a culinary genius. It is the ultimate way to go from zero to hero at camp or any large gathering. With its simple design you load the food into the CanCooker and heat it up, if you can read a clock you can use the CanCooker. After about an hour what you have is an excellent meal that will get rave reviews.
CanCooker is a new, unique outdoor cooking device that allows you to cook a lot of food without a lot of work. CanCooker makes a complete meal, which will feed a group of hungry people, in about one hour. Best of all, 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 ideal for camping, hunting, fishing, tailgating, family gatherings, picnics or any outdoor get-together. Any place that you have hungry people is a place for a can cooker.
CanCooker is an updated version of the old cream can which was used by farmers/ranchers to cook a hot, hearty and homemade meal while everyone worked. CanCooker cooks with steam so it's healthy. Each recipe includes twelve or more ounces of liquid which the heat source turns to steam.
With a crowd of hungry skeptics looking on, I loaded up my CanCooker with 12 half ears of corn, 2 pounds of red, white and blue potatoes, 2 pounds of kielbasa sausage, 2 onions, 2 lemons, a stick of butter and 2 cans of beer. On the side I had 10 pounds of clams, 10 pounds of muscles and 4 pounds of shrimp. I set it on the side burner of my grill and waited for the steam to start. Once the steam started coming out the top, I set the timer on my watch for thirty minutes. Thirty minutes later I added the clams and shrimp and waited for the steam to start coming out again. Once the steam started coming out again I set my watch for 15 minutes and carefully checked to see if the shellfish was finished cooking.
When it finished cooking I let it sit for five minutes and popped the lid. I drained off the excess liquid, and dumped all the food in a giant aluminum pan. I served it up with melted garlic butter, cocktail sauce, spicy mustard and French bread.
The meal tasted incredible, and cleanup was just as easy as it was advertised to be. I am impressed with the CanCooker and it will be sure to find a permanent home in my hunting camp and tailgating cooking arsenal.
