How to Build Your Own Outdoor Mud Oven | Wake Up World

Rocket stoves and outdoor grills are great for cooking in a pot or skillet when the power is down or non-existent following a disaster or a worst case SHTF situation where fuel is either flat-out unavailable or intolerably expensive.

There are some things, though, that cook best in an oven. One solution, of course, is to use a cast iron Dutch oven or camp stove. These are great options, sure, but what about something made from the ground we stand on? I am referring to what is commonly caused a “Mud Oven”. Until my recent visit to the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup, Washington, I did not know such a thing existed. Live and learn, right?

Pressure Canning Safely


Pressure canning is the only method recommended safe by the U.S.D.A. for low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats and fish.
No matter how high you turn up the heat, boiling water cannot surpass 212 degrees F (even lower at high altitudes). A Pressure Canner brings jar temperatures up to 240-250 degrees F at just 15 lbs sq. in. This temperature can be reached only by creating steam under pressure.
  • 100% bacteria kill guaranteed!
  • Simple and safe to use
Note: Glass-top ranges are not designed for the high heat of canning.
