Yep- ya spot on Mick BUT you cannot always have fires in the open (fire bans etc) and some weather conditions also preclude open fires as well (RAIN) like here in de tropics. If I can have fire as in burning stuff then I will always use that in preference to the beads BUT they are a great standby when not allowed to have open fires like here in Cairns EXCEPT if used for cooking ONLY. My black gas bottle ovens are approved by QLD Fire and Rescue as a cooking device on fire ban days as long as I put the stainless steel spark arresters in the chimney. (S/S scourers)

I can also have my ovens steamin' away under the patio as you know out of any inclement weather so that is a given bonus as well.

Fire wood is also another consideration up here as just about anywhere you can see fire wood laying around is National Park and ya not allowed to take the stuff and as far as wood merchants go ..well what are they.

So to round out: we cannot all have the luxury of picking up timber off the ground coz we might be burning a creatures "house" or it may be raining like buggery or it may be blowin' a gale etc.

After that little rant I luv campfires as much as the next person and will always use coals if possible... NUFFINK like sittin' round the camp fire avvin a few .. Gimme the campfire any time...


Here endeth the lesson..

Grrr!!! Smiley

Wow, I did have my grumpy pants on yesterday!!

CD
My point exactly,
The beads are great at home for 1 -2 ovens or to use under cover, but if you do have a fire going, why bother lighting beads!

Hey Mick

Why wouldnt you want to use heat beads?
Simple to use, easy to get temperature right for beginners and still cooks a great feed
Have to take those blinkers off mate.

I love the open fire as well Mick..
But now that I have the bug for heat beads.. I'm lost to cooking fire.
They are just for drinking around now mate.
Too hot and too hard.
Sorry Mick... I am truly converted.




Have you guys considered getting your TESTICLES re - attached??? Grin Grin Grin Grin

Another first for me, apple crumble in the CO.

Although I only used plain flour, the crumble turned out well and so easy to knock up. Definitely goes on the list of recipes for our desert trip this year.

Nice job on the crumble Diesel and good to see you looking through some of the older recipes here.
Sometimes you find some funny reading while looking through old threads.
Aart did you ever catch up with Mick to follow up on the testicle re attachment thing ? Grin

That sure is a nice crumble. Haven't cooked one since the last Alstonville COG where I did an apple and rhubarb one.
