Cowboy coffee in a big boiler
You can also use the other more sturdy brands percolator pots and take out the basket and tube.
Boiled coffe is a learned procedure and takes practice. If you cannot face having a bit of grounds in your coffee, or a dented pot with black soot marks on it, this may not be for you. This pot is not really for the stove. A boiled coffee pot like this one is meant for the campfire, or the fire-pit at home if you have one.
CARE OF POT: If you want it to stay nice and clean looking, wet the outside with a bit of soap before you put it on the fire, and let it dry to an invisible shield. Soot wipes right off when you wash it. Unless this stays outside all the time, this is a really smart idea to save the nice color on your pot. There is no basket, filter, tube, or other clutter to worry about, I want as little fussiness as possible for campfire coffee.
RECIPE FOR BOILED COFFEE: Here is a recipe from the book I am writing: Use 3/4 cup of coffee grounds per quart of coffee, or one coffee measure scoop per coffee cup of water. Heat the amount of water you intend to use in your pan over a hot fire, until boiling. Then add the coffee grounds, and an eggshell. Yes I said an eggshell. Get the water back to boiling as it slows for a couple of minutes after dropping in the coffee. Pull the pot off the fire and set it aside for a few minutes. Pour in a 1/2 cup of cold water. Along with the eggshells, this helps the grounds sink to the bottom of your pot. Some people do not like the cold water trick as they want the coffee as hot as possible. If that is you, just set it aside about 5 minutes to settle. Now the next secret to this is…. Don’t pour it out! Instead use a scooper or a ladle to serve your coffee so that you do not stir up the grounds again. If you do not have a ladle, pour really really slow. That is why the lid on a boiler is supposed to be bigger than a lid on a percolator.
TIP: Remember not to drink the cup to the bottom, throw out the last bit has grounds, then get a fresh cup. Now when I was a kid there were tricks that my uncles used when hunting involving socks as bag for grounds, but don’t even ask me to go there. This type of pot is also convenient for leaving on the fire during the day to keep hot water going for washing dishes, bathing, cooking, or to make some hot chocolate or tea in the cup.
Now keep in mind that this page lists about 6 or more different size posts, some are percolators, so make sure you get what you really need. Boilers tend to come in bigger sizes that percolators, so if you need a BIG pot, you can get a boiler all the way up to 36 cups. Now that looks impressive on a fire. I hope all this helps you, Happy Trails!
Big boiler, nice.
I had it so black it looked black,not the blue it is ,cleans up very easy, just remember the soap
I used it to heat shower water in
GSI 36 cup blue boiler
Just what I was looking for
Nice and large
Great pot for the camp stove
Holds lots of water, and handle is good at transferring the heat, but I recommend still using a hotpad.
In use for 2 years now, and my camp of 15 men are not exactly gentle with it. It seems to be holding up just great. In fact, I will most likely with be buying another one soon.
