Yep, camp oven always gets packed. Chicken stew, rabbit stew, goat stew, all excellent when out in the oz bush. Fresh baked bread that barely lasts the day because it is sooo good. Even the odd cake gets made.

Al-foil to line the oven makes clean up a lots easier (serious lack of water in most parts of oz). As least we have plenty of wood in most areas - even arid places.

cheers,
george.

Pound for pound, a dutch oven is gold even when space is at a premium. Love to learn new recipes for all the cast iron I carry around.

I have found them a pain to bring. They are heavy, take up too much room and are tough to use in the windy areas I camp. I use it around the house sometimes but I have yet to find anything that turns out better in the dutch than the regular house oven.
