A pressure pack is a method for outdoor cooking of food without the use of utensils.

Heavy duty foil is folded into a sachet and this is then used to cook the food.

Use heavy duty foil - as this is less likely to tear.

Type of pressure packs

  • Flat pouches
  • tent pouches
  • Single meal pouches
  • Patrol sized pouch

How to cook with a a pressure pack

  • tear off a piece of foil about 30cm in length,
  • fold the foil in half - to create a double layer,
  • fold into a quarter to create the pouch,
  • create a double seam along the two sides (with the fold as the bottom of the pouch)
  • fill with your meat and vegetables,
  • carefully place on the coals of the fire (you may also put some coals over the pouch)
