Cookin in the camp oven

Postby Nenie23 » Sat Oct 07, 2006 9:26 am

Have a great time - bloody envious of you.

Just a tip when cooking a roast in the camp oven, dont put the roast on the bottom of the camp oven, get a small roasting rack or cake cooler that sits about 1cm off the bottom. That way, it stops the bottom of the roast going black, and you can also wrap some veges or potatoes in foil and put them underneath the rack.

Happy camping and cooking.

Yeah have fun camping! Also prep your fire 2hrs before you want to cook so you have heaps of nice coals I didn't start the fire untill I was ready to cook and it took an hour before I had enough coals to cook with! Late dinner that night about 9pm! :armsup

Thanks for the offer Rocketman!!

We are off the following weekend. Our family purchased a Non residential block of land at North Arm Cove, just north of Karuah, and we have cleared part of that and use it as our winter camping ground. We have a portaloo and have made our own shower room, have our camp fire cranking (non fire ban months), sit back and do bugger all.

Its a great spot cause its ours - no one else around, dogs can stay off the leads, kids can run feral, and there is a beautiful swimming spot bout 2 mins drive from our site.

Wonder what the poor people are doing this weekend!@!!

Enjoy your weekend.

A place called Bremer Bay ... about 200k's east of Albany ... we havea CT we call 'The Cottage' becuase by the time it's fully up we have 2 bedrooms, a dining/ eating area, and a 'spare room'. Measures approx 20 sq feet. Towed by a 12 y/o Paj (not keen on the new ones ... or the price!). Used to have a RAV 4 towing it but after we switched vehicles I hardly know the CT is there at all. Oddly enough the fuel economy is about the same when towing the CT in both vehicles.
