I've acquired a few great pots for my Tramp Cook Kit. I also now have a forged Squirrel Cooker and a pair of forged 3" S-Hooks.
I'd love to get my hands on a handmade forged pot chain for hanging over a tripod, but it'll be a while. I picked up this hardware at the local Tractor Supply, but it turns out that being Zinc Coated is bad for hanging over a fire because of the noxious fumes it will put out. While out that day, I also picked up an uncoated steel dog chain for $1. at a thrift store "just because" it was there, but it looks like it's going to be the one I use for my tripod set-up. I guess I'll have to find some other use for my Zinc Coated chain.
Here's a bushpot that I acquired through a trade. I haven't been ableto get a positive ID on it other than that it might be a Boy Scout kit pot and it came with these cups nested in it. It's aluminum and it's in great shape for it's age. The online examples of it are selling for $40 in far worse condition and I've come across a few folks that have said that they picked them up for $5 a pop. I couldn't find one to save my hide so I snatched this one for the equivalent of clost to $50. Yep...I said it. I paid close to $50 for it. For $15 less than that, I could've had a new Mors Pot, but I just had to own this piece of authenticity.
It's aluminum, 5 1/2" wide X 7 1/2" tall, has a lockable bail, looks like copper butterfly holding handles, no screen in the spout, D-Ring on lid and the lid itself fits very snugly on the pot and won't come off if inverted and shaken very hard. When on, it does not rattle at all. The cups are 2 1/4" tall and have graduation readings at 1/4 cup -2oz, 1/2 cup-4oz, 3/4 cup-6oz and 1 cup-8oz. What seems like rust on the photos looks to be carbon deposits on the metal. It's actually black and chalky actually, not brown.
The cast iron skillets in the background were gifts from a friend.
