Jonathan Dixon <email@example.com> asked about Cooking MB.
The Scouts do indeed have to cook only the 5 designated meals, rather
than all the meals they planned. I have seen two Scouts work together
to cook for their patrol (or sometimes even troop) to meet the
cooking requirement. I believe that would be acceptable, IF the
menu is sufficiently challenging and BOTH Scouts are actually cooking
and making descisions, etc. The problem is that, much of the time,
ONE of the Scouts ends up as the cook and the other ends up assisting
him, rather than demonstrating his own ability.
As for the fireplace question, since I live in central Florida, what
exactly is a rock, anyway? :) We don't have very many rocks big
enough to use in a fireplace, so I'll skip that part. We have
been known to use logs to form a fireplace, however. (Isn't it
dangerous to use many kinds of rocks, since some can explode?)
I am sure several people will point you to some one-pot non-canned
meals. If not, I'll try to do so later.
