Making your own #10 can oven
If you're looking for a way to recycle and at the same time save some cash, the #10 can oven is right up your alley. The #10 can oven is perfect if you want to learn how to make SHTF food-ready items using your wood-burning stove.
To turn the can into a makeshift oven, follow the steps below:
Stoke the fire in your wood-burning stove ahead of time so it's nice and hot once you're done preparing the can oven.
Remove the lid/top of the #10 can, then carefully trim at least 1/4 of an inch from it. You can use the trimmed lid later as a cooking plate with the empty can inverted on top of it.
For a trivet you can use a 7.5-oz salmon or tuna can.
Put a couple of tablespoons of water on the 7.5-oz can trivet, then place the can on top of your wood-burning stove.
Cover the cooking plate with foil, place your pre-made dough on it, then balance the cooking plate on the trivet. Slowly place the inverted #10 can over the trivet and cooking plate.
Wait for about 15 minutes, give or take, then your mini bread loaf should be done. If you have enough dough left over, refill the water in your can trivet, grease the lid cooking plate, and start a second batch of bread.
This second batch will probably take faster than 15 minutes since your #10 can oven will still be warm from your first batch of mini bread loaf.
