I hiked the Appalachian trail and cooked dinners (and the odd lunch or breakfast) the whole way.

Lightweight backpacking food means dehydrated, and high in fat since it has the most calories per weight. My staples were pasta sides of varying flavors, peanut butter, ramen, quick-cooking pasta and dehydrated sauce, jerky, dried fruit, junk food (candy, honey buns, granola bars etc), cheese, oatmeal, summer sausages, and instant potatoes. I brought some dehydrated vegetables for a little nutrition, added olive oil/cheese to most things to add more calories. A few hot sauce packets go a long way too.

Hikers rarely to never used freeze dried foods due to cost. I ate a couple but they were all given to me.

You could move the butter in a screw top jar, maybe a small peanut butter container?

I did the whole trail with one pot (the infamous grease pot, get rid of the strainer and replace the handle with something lighter. It's as light as expensive backpacking pots at 1/5 the price), one small plastic cup for tea, and a spork. Boil some water, dump in your food, let it simmer for 5-10 minutes, eat. No one carried a pan since they were just dead weight.

Cooking in foil in coals does work. The problem is that stuff you can wrap in foil (potatoes, ground beef, onions etc.) has a very high water content and will therefore be very heavy.

u/TheBimpo · 12 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

30lbs, then your food and the extra clothes you're going to add on. You're carrying so much weight you might be miserable. I'm a believer in hike your own hike but man, that's a lot of crap you don't need and a lot of crap that's heavy. Every item you don't NEED is extra weight. It's luxury. It's luxury that's heavy and you're carrying for "just in case" or "so my butt doesn't get dirty"...like that 3oz seat cushion. That stuff adds up fast. Dump it.

Dump that huge pot and get a grease pot.

Dump the zippo for a bic, zippos suck in the woods, bics rarely fail.

Do you already own that tent? 6 pounds is freaking heavy.

Dump the knife sharpener, dump the lantern, the batteries and the charger, dump all of those drysacks and just use trash compactor bags...they cost less and weight almost nothing.

Your sleeping pad is also heavy. Get a cheap blue pad like this for now

Your pillow is among the heaviest available. An Exped Air UL and spare t shirt will save almost half a pound.

You dont need the scrapers and dishcloths, just the scraper, and you don't really need that.

Just those changes saves 5 lbs 2 oz, not counting the tent.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money right now go with this: http://andrewskurka.com/2011/how-to-make-a-fancy-feast-alcohol-stove/

and this:

Then grab some foil from your house for a windscreen and grab a spork from KFC. You'll have a complete cooking setup for less that $10. Plus it's super light.

Stanco Grease Pot from Amazon is well regarded for lightweight and cheap.

I wouldn't cheap out on a pan. The GSI Pinnacle 8" is good quality and the MSR skillet is also worth the money.

u/CrashCourseInCrazy · 3 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

If you are doing mostly "freezer bag" meals, you will not need a very large pot, and shape is less crucial. However, if you plan to cook in your pot a lot, you will need to be more picky. Wider bottom pots are easier to cook in and eat from, and typically you want a pot wider than your stove for efficiency. Think about stability, both in the width of the pot and weight/length of the handle.

Titanium isn't really lighter, it's just stronger. I have an aluminum grease pot from Kmart, weight 3.5oz and holds 1.5 liters, it's nice and wide. Only cons are that it does not have a handle or fry pan lid, and will dent much more easily (but can also be bent back into shape or replaced cheaply). Grease pot from amazon.

u/jimpoker · 3 pointsr/Ultralight

Here it is on Amazon. I've been using one for years with a cat stove and aluminum foil windscreen. Total cost less than $10 and UL.

u/l33t5p34k · 3 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

I would consider a headlight or a sleeping pad

Depending on what type of cooking you want to do a homemade alcohol stove and a grease pot will let you cook all of these recipes. from Andrew Surka http://andrewskurka.com/section/how-to/food-nutrition/meal-recipes/

u/flextrek_whipsnake · 3 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

https://www.rei.com/product/127720/rei-co-op-backpacking-bundle

That's a pretty good deal for what you get. Note that the sleeping pad is not an optional item. You need insulation from the ground. You'll also need a pack, and on a budget I would recommend the REI Coop Flash 55. REI has a reputation for being expensive, but the REI brand stuff tends to be pretty good value.

You can also keep an eye on used gear on Craigslist. It's not uncommon to find used gear in good condition for 50% off retail. Good brands to look out for are Osprey for packs, Big Agnes for tents, Western Mountaineering/Feathered Friends for bags (tons of brands here), and Thermarest for pads. There are way more good brands (e.g. NEMO), but those are the big ones known for high quality.

Beyond those four things, you will need:

  • Cook set: Stove and a pot. The MSR Pocket Rocket is great, but if you're really strapped for cash you can make a DIY alcohol stove out of a beer can (I really don't recommend it). This is a really popular pot for backpacking on the cheap. For utensils, grab a plastic spork from Taco Bell or something. Knorr pasta sides + spam singles are a great cheap backpacking dinner. You can also ignore all of this and just eat cold food.
  • Water filter: Sawyer Squeeze. Watch some youtube videos on how to use it.
  • Headlamp: Black Diamond is the main brand here. Just get the cheapest one you can find, or skip it and bring the lightest flashlight you own.
  • First aid kit: Don't buy a premade one. You need ibuprofen, benadryl (doubles as a sleep aid), anti-diarrhea (not necessary but when you need it you really need it), assorted bandaids, strong tape, gauze, and neosporin.
  • Water storage: 1L Smartwater bottles (or any brand of 1L plastic bottles, but Smartwater is the classic backpacker choice for their superior durability). Necessary capacity depends on where you're going, but at least 2L.
  • Rain gear: Frogg Toggs
  • Insulating layer: You probably own a fleece or puffy already, so bring that.
  • Miscellaneous: Hand sanitizer, toilet paper, bug spray

    I probably forgot something but that should cover it.
u/Jytfui86tgg · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips
u/demn2 · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

preface: After reviewing the proposal below, I personally think you'd be better off merely leaving stuff behind (including the camera, if you still feel heavy), not buying any of the purchase recommendations (other than maybe Stanco pot and Frogg Toggs), and just slowly upgrading slots to whatever your dream best-in-slot items are one at a time, starting with sleeping bag/quilt, tent, backpack. There's no shame in a 15lb lightweight baseweight. It's not that terrible if you make sure to not overfill water, food, and worn clothing. :)

  • sleeping bag: If it's honestly never going below 41 degrees in winter, you could possibly get away with something like a single $20 costo down throw or quilt made from it. They're sold in pairs on their website: https://www.costco.com/Double-Black-Diamond-Packable-Down-Throw-2-pack.product.100314979.html -30 oz
  • get rid of half your toothpaste. -.76 oz
  • half your hand sanitizer -.98 oz
  • half your bog roll -1 oz
  • cup: drink out of your pot -4.69 oz
  • lighter pot, -5 oz: https://www.amazon.com/Stanco-Non-Stick-Grease-Strainer-Black/product-reviews/B000MVTIOQ/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_search_rgt?filterByKeyword=ounces&search-alias=community-reviews#reviews-filter-bar
  • camp shoes: leave 'em, and just wear your normal shoes untied, -7.05 oz
  • track pants: you've got shorts, and you've got leggings. don't also need cotton track pants? -14.25
  • rain coat: swap to frogg toggs ul ($10-20 for jacket + pants, 5.2-5.5 oz) -3oz
  • pullover, leave it, you already have a 2lb softshell, 2 merino tshirts, and a rain coat. -9.38 oz.
  • boots: swap to trail runners or something so that your feet are more ventilated.

    that drops you to 15lb for upwards of $40 usd + s/h... the main points to attack after that (other than in worn gear/carried clothing) are thus the 3.4lb tent, and 4.1lb backpack. But, as the backpack is new... Hard to tell man. $90 could get you a 3lb tent, $200 a 2lb tent. You could try to go tarp + bivy/bug net or poncho tarp+bivy/bug net to cut out something like 3 lbs, but even then you would be a lb heavy.

  • leave the carried sleep clothes (extra merino shirt, and leggings) to cut out an additional 12 oz.
  • replace the goddamn heavy ass zebralight with a 3 AAA still heavy ass rechargeable Black Diamond Revolt for -1oz, or just go balls to the wall with a nitecore tip 2017 w/ hat clip ($20 or so) for -3.55oz.

    boom, you're at around 11 lbs baseweight without touching the 4.1lb backpack, the 1.5lb camera, or going no-stove. Keep in mind that you got forced out of camping by "extreme weather" once already, so going to something that might only be warm enough down to 40 degrees isn't necessarily smart. If you were the reason you left, I'd say that you are not properly wearing your layers. 46 ounces of sleeping bag, 28 ounces of softshell jacket, 12 ounces of merino tshirts, 8 ounces of rain jacket, and 25 ounces of shorts/pants should be enough thickness and weight to go far below the temperatures you're claiming you will see (one reason i suggested leaving so much of it behind and replacing the bag). Could you elaborate on the extreme weather temperature so we have a metric for what threshold of safety to put you at?
u/bisonkron · 2 pointsr/CampingGear

I was referring to a different grease pot of theirs:

http://www.amazon.com/Stanco-Non-Stick-Grease-Strainer-Black/dp/B000MVTIOQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1427807151&sr=8-3&keywords=imusa+grease+pot

The one you have may be thick enough to be food grade, it does still look like non-anodized, which would explain the staining.

u/Genghis_John1 · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

Re: Pots!

You should look into a "grease pot" from WalMart/Kmart. They're also offered on Amazon. They're super cheap ($10), super light (3.5oz w/ lid), and hold around 1.3 liters (just enough for 2 people if needed). You will need to buy some sort of "gripper" or pot lifter, but they're not expensive ($5-$15). If you wanted to save more weight/money, you could go without the pot gripper. There is also info on the internet (backpackinglight.com I think) on modifications you can do to the lid of the grease pot to shave weight further.

u/mreo · 2 pointsr/backpacking

If I can chime in on the cookware stuff. I agree with u/rusty075 about switching to aluminum as a good way to save weight.

Traildesigns has some pretty inexpensive aluminum cookware. Decent stuff for under thirty dollars.

Im playing around with the stanco grease pot that I read about on an ultralight forum. Its 9 dollars and seems to work just fine for boiling water.
Switching from aluminum might save you half a pound.

u/RygorMortis · 2 pointsr/Ultralight
  • You should absolutely look to buy your pack last, once you have everything else sorted out. If at that point y our base weight is >10lbs, and total weight is around 20lbs, then looking at a frameless pack is fine, but if you end up much higher than that then you will really want a pack with a frame. Also you will be able to estimate how much space you need and avoid having to return the Burn if it ends up being to small.

  • The EE APEX Rev is $185 for a 30° quilt. I have the older version, and a few other people here have the same thing, and we all love it. It takes up a bit more space in your pack, but the price is great, and the quality is excellent. You also have the Burrow Econ 20° that you mentioned in the same price range.

  • That Costco throw will only be good to around 50°, and for someone your height it will be short, even if you modify it. I'm 5'9" and it was ok for me, but I've since given it to my dog to use on trips.

  • You don't have much to lose by testing out the GG pad, they're cheap so if you don't like it it isn't the end of the world, just make sure you try it at home first. Nothing is worse than realizing you hate it when you're out on the trail with no alternative.

  • For toothbrush just go to Target and buy a cheap brush, I cut the handle on mine so it would fit in a Ziploc bag and it weighs .25oz

  • Pack liner all the way. They weigh 2oz and keep everything inside dry. Things on the outside don't need to be dry anyway. Pack covers are less than ideal, especially once water starts running down the back

  • Replace your rain jacket with Frogg Toggs, saves you 5oz for $15. The FT pants suck, so I would leave them at home.

  • Ditch the sleep clothes. If it's warm you won't need them, and if it's cold you will want something warmer.

  • You can save 3-4 oz with a new pot. Something like a grease pot is cheap and works well.

  • Depending on length of trip I would leave the charger or get a lighter one. Anker makes some great ones

  • You could probably lighten up a lot of you Miscellaneous stuff by paring down your FAK, carrying less sanitizer or sunscreen, and fewer wet naps and all.
u/treadedon · 2 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

My Suggestions:

  • The quilt looks like it would work. At first I was going to agree with everyone else about not bringing one for both but the Accomplice, for the most part, is 2 sleeping bags sewn together. What degree do you plan on getting tho?

  • The cook set could be replaced with something lighter. Not sure if you want those cups but this is only like 3 oz: http://www.amazon.com/Stanco-Non-Stick-Grease-Strainer-Black/dp/B000MVTIOQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1452001853&sr=8-2&keywords=grease+strainer If money isn't tight, the TOAKS Titanium pot is the upgraded version of what I've linked.

  • 16 oz of duct tape seems excessive.

  • The Dry bags seem heavy. You can get others that weigh about 2 oz. http://www.seatosummit.com/product/?item=Ultra-Sil%26reg%3B+Nano+Dry+Sack&o1=0&o2=0&o3=511-32

  • I think you could get away with the speaker but for 22 oz. I would rather get headphones that are significantly lighter.

  • I would forgo the Gopro. Phone camera works fine. HYOH tho. GoPros do take really cool shots. You just have 4.54 pounds in electronics alone.

    Response to your Questions:

  • From all the other gear lists I've seen, you have the appropriate amount of clothing. Weight conscious people usually forgo pants for shorts, have 2 base layers, a nice puffy, a rain/wind shell and that is about it. Don't forget light pair of gloves.

  • Go to the retailer site and they usually have the dimensions of what you are suppose to get.

  • I've seen some people with it but I would say majority do not. Most that have the bug net for their face usually are bivy/tarp people. Unless you are overly attractive to bugs I would ditch it.

  • I would just get a cheap/light pair of gloves to be honest. Nothing worst than freezing hands as you try and take down/set up your tent.

  • Works for some, I tried it. For me took to long to boil water, imo. If you know what you are doing it will be fine. My recommendation is get a wind screen. If it becomes a pain get a http://www.cascadedesigns.com/msr/stoves/rapid-cooking/pocketrocket/product or something similar. I'm not a fan of the jetboils, I believe you can't cook in them.

  • I can't imagine you will have a problem but I'm not completely sure. All the vids and trail time I've seen there has been lots of spots. You just may have to be a little more selective.

  • See above

    Good luck! If I see a couple with a dog and a cloudburst I'll say hello!

If you get something like this it wont get rancid. Its the stuff in the grease that makes it go bad.

u/DavidWiese · 2 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

Monoprice Titanium Stove 1.7oz $20

Stanco Grease Pot 3oz $10

4oz isobutane for stove 4oz $5

This works really well for meals that are simply boiling water and adding to dehydrated food.

Years and years ago when I was a kid, bacon grease was strained in something that looked like this and used for all kinds of cooking examples here

u/FrankiePoops · 2 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

$5 at Walmart, or my local grocery store (C-Town). $8 on amazon.

Another option that people love is the Imuza. Comes in 10CM and 12CM widths.

u/Lazer_Guy · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

All you need is one of these nifty do-hickeys.

u/Large_Eddy · 1 pointr/AppalachianTrail

I have used an alcohol stove for about 6 years and I love it. I use mine with an MSR Titan Kettle but it is about $50. A cheap option would be to use a grease pot. Loads of people swear by them. You can buy one at Walmart too. The Toaks titanium pot is around $30. People also use this mug to cook water in and claim it will boil 2 cups. Here is another grease pot that people use.

You can make a windscreen for it out of lightweight aluminum flashing or heavy duty cooking foil.

Unstrained bacon fat has more protein in it and protein loves to stick. These are nice for straining bacon fat.

u/matthewrozon · 1 pointr/backpacking

You do not have to spend a lot. Here are some suggestions that I choose to use even though I could spend the money on more expensive gear.

Pack: Rent until you decide you want to do this a lot and have already bought the rest of your gear

Tent: rent it for this trip if you don't already have one. If you do, it's best to split it up, poles and fly for you and tent for him or vice versa

Sleeping bags, bring them if you have them or rent

Stove: http://www.amazon.com/Ultralight-Backpacking-Canister-Ignition-silvery/dp/B00ENDRORM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1396264963&sr=8-1&keywords=backpacking+stove Works just as well as the 50$ one.

Water filter: http://www.amazon.com/Sawyer-Products-SP128-Filtration-System/dp/B00FA2RLX2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1396265006&sr=8-1&keywords=sawyer+mini+water+filter cheap, durable, no moving parts to worry about and it's super light

Pot: A lot of people use this, but it might be a bit small for you depending on what kind of food you're going to cook but this works well for freezer bag meals http://www.amazon.com/Stanco-Non-Stick-Grease-Strainer-Black/dp/B000MVTIOQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1396265044&sr=8-1&keywords=grease+can

Long Johns and other clothing: Walmart usually has decent options. Make sure that they are synthetic. You may find that you already have a few things if you look through your clothes at home. Depending how thick they are your snowboarding socks might make good hiking socks or if you have long underwear for snowboarding they would be useful camping.

What are you doing for shoes? Do not waste money on boots if you don't already have them. 90% of trails can be done in good running shoes and 95% of trails can be done in light hiking shoes.

Misc hints: For water bottles just re-use old gatorade bottles, those nalgenes are super heavy. Think about getting two hiking poles instead of just walking stick but this is a preference thing. Avoid cotton at all costs and have fun!
