By the bye, with cracked wheat (bulgur) or steel cut oats, or whole wheat or 
hulled oats for that matter, it isn't necessary to cook them at all.  If you 
put them in a pot with the proper amount of water early in the evening, by 
morning they have swelled and are ready to eat as is.

"... we got out the meal-bag and made drammach in the iron pan. This, though 
it is but cold water mingled with oatmeal, yet makes a good enough dish for a 
hungry man; and where there are no means of making fire, or (as inour case) 
good reason for not making one, it is the chief stand-by of those who have taken 
to the heather."
(From Robert L. Stevens'  'Kidnapped')
