    You left out one of the most important methods,

    Road flare and paraffin!

    Just kidding, another excellent video.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    You laugh, but I just got back from a camping trip that saw biblical rains on Thursday. It it weren't for a propane torch I would have broken out the road flares (yes, I travel with them). Sure, with a lot of effort, simpler methods would have worked.......but it was time for a fire and adult beverages so time was of the essence.
