Hey Griz, we have one and love it! Definitely worth the money. Makes a TON of food in one full can. They have some really good recipes in a booklet that comes with it, but our fav is the sausage, venison, potatoe, onion, corn on the cob one. I highly reccomend it!

I got one of these couple years ago loaded up a porkloin on top of some corn and some spuds cranked up the heat and she started to steam and I figured I was on a roll, only to find out that I must have generated too much heat too fast and I torched everything inside.I have not used it since but want to try it again.
I used a turkey fryer burner as a heat source, does anyone have any tips for applying the right amount of heat?

An Orion cooker will give you more bang for your buck still using the convection method of cooking and you will not need a campfire to cook on. Comes with cooking grates, rib hangers and poultry stand. Wood chips will smolder if you want to add smoke also, just a larger cooking area with more versatility and functions for a simple set it and forget it cooker.

I use a turkey fryer burner all the time.  Just turn it up so the flame just touches the bottom of the can.  The other day we used a Camp Chef grill and did two cans at a time.  Should take about 20 minutes or so to start to see steam.  I bought the metal wire grates to keep the food directly off the bottom.  I usually add one to two beers and a bottle of water depending on what type of veggies and meats.  More liquid is better than not enough.    Use your imagination for recipes, can't really go wrong.  Cajun Shake seasoning or whatever you like.

I like to use smoked Pork ribs and then about any kind of veggie that will stay fairly chunky through the cooking process.  Sweet potatoes, corn, rutabegas, brocolli, green beans.  I did a seafood/fish boil the other day. Yummy! 

We've been doing it for a Church fund raiser and use real stainless steel cream cans with tin foil for a lid to make enough for everybody.  Its mighty simple.

Here is a recipe from the can cooker website that I mainly use.


10-12 ears of corn on the cob, cut in half or use whole corn with shuck ( remove silk )

10-15 potatoes, washed and cut in half

2 onions, quartered

12 carrots, cut into 3 or 4-inch lengths

1 head cabbage, quartered

1 bunch of asparagus ( or other vegetable )

12 bratwursts or other sausage types. Try venison, pork loin, chicken breast, roast

1 or 2 12 oz. liquid ( water or beer )

1-2 sticks of butter ( or margarine, olive oil )

CanCooker Original Seasoned Salt

CanCooker Onion Pepper Seasoning

Or use your favorite dressing or marinade.


Layer corn standing on end, add potatoes, onions, vegetables, cabbage and meat into the CanCooker in the order listed. Pour in beer ( or water ) and season with CanCooker seasoning. Add marinades and butter. Latch lid and place on heat source ( camp fire, propane burner ). Once lid begins to vent steam, keep on heat source for 40-minutes ( approx. ) or until done. Remove from heat and let stand for a minimum of 5 to 10 minutes. Place into large serving dish and enjoy!


****Always spray the inside of the CanCooker with Non Stick cooking spray before you add contents


****Sprinkle CanCooker Butter Garlic Salt on Veggies at the table for a great flavor!
