Slow cooking while boondocking is best done with a Dutch oven. No inverters, no stove left on while you are away hiking, no Lp cookers left un attended. There are tons of recipes over the last 80 years that you can easily make, go for a hike, swim,nap and come back to a safely cooked delicious meal that takes very little skill and time to prepare. Leave the crockpot at home, this is camping and enjoying the outdoors.

And it puts much needed iron in our diets.

I just ordered a 120 watt portable solar charger. I wanted portable because I camp out of my van as much as the Casita, more so off the grid. The portable charger should help keep me charged up on the house battery in what ever I take. I could even use as an emergency charger for the tow vehicle battery if it came to that. I don't think it would run a crock pot itself but it would at least let you start the evening with a full charge assuming there is some sunshine. (-:}

I still prefer a dutch oven and a little charcoal.

This thread has been dormant for a few weeks, but maybe an old fashioned hay box would work, using the propane to bring your pot to a full boil for a couple of minutes first. I also use a Dutch oven, the iron 3 qt Lodge brand with the 3 legs.
