Alpkit Brukit - Stove

Apr 212019

We are all familiar with the fantastic Jetboil mini stove and its world reliability. Say hello to the challenger the Alpkit Brukit, sporting all the features of the Jetboil at a fraction of the cost..

 

Available for £45.00 from Alpkit

 

Ditch the flask of stewed tea and make a fresh brew on the trail. Or go further with hot soup or nutritious one-pot wonder. When you’ve got a checkpoint to make, painstakingly assembling your cooking system isn’t always an option.

Brukit was built on the basis that sometimes you just really need to boil water or make food quickly. It’s efficient, fast, and simple.

An integrated system for fast boil times. A built-in heat exchanger and windshield minimises heat loss so your fuel goes that bit further.

All the Brukit’s bits can be stored inside its own pot, including a 100 g canister, so you have minimal components to juggle. The built-in Piezo ignitor makes lighting the Brukit faff-free; detachable rubberized handles and a neoprene cosy can be left on during cooking for easy handling. The included pan support makes the Brukit compatible with other pans too. Gas canister not included.

Heat it and eat it: it’s that simple!

The Swap from Gas To Dual Fuel Stoves

Mar 012019

After much deliberation we decided to make the swap from Butane gas stoves to dual fuel. A fear of pressurized bottles pushed us to make the change. We are now running a Coleman 424 stove, I have really taken to this stove. If you follow the correct lighting procedure its easy to light first time. The first time we used Coleman fuel but at £8.00 per litre we soon changed to the camping forums recommended Aspen 4 fuel.After much deliberation we decided to make the swap from Butane gas stoves to dual fuel.

Coleman Fuel

The Coleman® Liquid Fuel is all you need for running a variety of applications in the outdoors. Coleman Fuel is a mix of petroleum naphtha with a bit of rust inhibitor, formulated and manufactured solely by Coleman.

It has an octane rating of 50 to 55 and none of the additives found in gasoline, so causes less dirt build up and so less stive maintenance.
Formulated especially for Coleman liquid fuel appliances and with a lighter molecular weight than gasoline, kerosene and diesel fuel, it cannot be used as a substitute for any of those fuels, and would burn out the valves of a gasoline engine if used.

Aspen 4 Fuel

Aspen 4 is the cleanest petrol that you can use. Aspen is made from alkylate petrol which is made from the gases from the top of the distillation tower which are synthetically modified into a liquid again.

Aspen is free from ethanol,sulphur,solvents,olefins & benzene.

Can be store without going off for 3-5 years.

Designed as a Carp anglers cooking pan, these are ideally suited for the back of the overland truck too.

Description

With the RidgeMonkey Connect Combi Set, not only will you limit the weight of your kit, thanks to only having to take one pan with you, no matter how many days you’re out for, you have the flexibility to cook a different meal every day; the RidgeMonkey pan set features a four-section breakfast pan on one side, and a traditional, deep frying pan on the other.

The upper section also doubles as a lid, and the unique hinge design means that you have the option of separating the two sections, providing you with two individual pans – perfect if you’re fishing with a mate who likes a completely different breakfast to you, as you’ll have the flexibility of each cooking your own choice. The handles can be removed for easy transport and storage, this lightweight, diecast aluminium pan set is an EUIPO registered design, with a fluoropolyester non-stick coating.

Practical and versatile, the Connect Combi Pan Set is everything that’s good about the young, forward-thinking, passionate brand that is RidgeMonkey, and ensures you’ll never need to buy another set of bankside pans.

Creating products whose striking design and exceptional performance is rapidly making them bankside favourites, RidgeMonkey look more than set to make the transition from bold newcomer to angling establishment without any undue effort.
