Fireless Cook Books! Use for Thermal Cooker Recipes

Thermal cookers are not new and were known as Fireless Cookers a 100 years ago here in the USA.  Many old recipe books from that era are available online for free or have been republished and can be bought in book form.

One interesting cook book was from Gone With the Wind author Margaret Michell who before becoming famous wrote a great book on fireless cooking.

Below are links to the online versions and reprinted versions of a number of cook book/recipe books on fireless cooking which can be used directly in a modern thermal cooker.  Some of the old recipe books reference a “radiator” which was often a soap stone or cement disk that was heated up on a stove and then placed in the insulated box under the pot that held the food.  The stone radiated heat and helped keep the temperatures up inside the cookers and even allowed for some baking to be done inside the fireless cook box.
