Cooking Breakfast in the Duck Boat ???

9 posts in this topic

I'd like to here the Do's and dont's. I figured it would really add something special to youth waterfowl day and the kids would love it. I've never tried this before but have heard of others doing it. Some tips would be great. I'll be hunting out of a 14' boat and guessing attempting this in shallow water.

just bring everything you use at home for cooking and add a fire ext. I cook all the time in my boat while hunting.

Obviously you'll need a heat source.

The old standby of a Coleman type stove is what we've used in the past. This year though, I'll probably have the obtion of using the NEW propane two burner (smaller, cleaner, and flatter).

As in camping situations, stability is the key. If your not totally level and stable its dangerous. So find a very thick stand of weeds or solid mud or ground to beach your boat in.

After that its all up to you:

- One great idea my dad reminded me of is the "Omelet in Bag"

It's a good one: just add the eggs, meat, veggies, and seasonings into each individual omelet bag so everybody gets their favorite. They fit easily into a lunch cooler, don't matter if they get shaken up either...

- Or... They used to sell a pancake mix in a small plastic container (16oz?) that just required adding water to a line, shaking it up, and pouring. We generally added blueberries, but you could try chocolate chips, etc. Extremely simple.

- Or... Last year my nephew stated that this was the best breakfast he'd ever had: I make one pack of sausage links (then cut up), added scrambled eggs, cheese, and pre-diced orange and red bell peppers and cooked. We severed it on tortillas and had breakfast burritos. I'd say you could save your self some effort in the boat and pre cook/dice the sausages (or bacon) and bring them in a bag w/ the pre diced onions, peppers, cheese, etc. then just add to the bag of eggs and tah dah... Your the Emeril of the Swamp!!!

JUST BEWARE>>> It usually goes w/o saying that the minute you crack out he vittles, the ducks start flying in from nowhere.

I've got an old sunflower style propane heater. I'll probably just flip the stand over and figure out a way to fasten it to the boat for safety reasons. I'm thinking about trying some kind of a breakfast sandwich becuase it seems like something the kids can handle.

Nothing better than cooking in the blind on a cold crisp morning! But as stated once you get cooking the birds always seem to show up. As stated you may want to bring along a fire extinguisher, why from experiance. Last yr me and my brother had a huge flock of red legs drop down from the clouds on us and in the excitement to grab our guns we hit the stove over and started some of the rafia grass stapled to our blind on fire. What a site us trying to put out the fire and birds locked up then flairing from all the commotion! We laughed about it for some time but in all seriousness it could of turned out worse, so be carefull!

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
