What a lovely little town Kingsthorpe is.  I arrived at 8:30 so had a bit of a look around and as always the best place to head for is the highest point so off I went and found a track to a lookout.  Well sorry people of Kingsthorpe but that track needs a sign cautioning people as to it's extreme angle of accent.  I only made it half way up and here is a photo of the town from where I got.

...

The venue was the the Gowrie Kingsthorpe Pub and what an amazing little place

...

They even put a sign out the front to let everyone know what was going on

...

Rastas (Bob) brought along his collection of Jaffle Irons and I am sure he will be able to explain what each one is

...

Rastas decided to season his new Aussie Camp Oven.  Worked well on the fire

...

Cobbs were there in numbers.

...

Kingsthorpe David preparing the roast for the Cobb

...

Just as she went in

...

The finished product

...

Rastas cheesy damper cooked in the seasoned Aussie Camp Oven

...

Brians golden syrup dumplings

...

Brians chocolate dumplings in chocolate sauce

...

Some of the folks gathered around

...

The fire pit.  The Furphy 14" has a guinness stew simmering away and one of Rastas jaffle irons is cooking a jaffle on top of the Aussie Camp Oven.

...

I had a wonderful day.  Met some great people and ate some good food.  I cooked a Chocolate Kahlua Self Saucing Pudding and as always happens forgot to take photos.

Thank you David for organising the event and for presenting me with the upside down sausage fork.

I know others took photos and look forward to seeing them

The Toowoomba BCF Manager brought another Cobb and did a demo.
Great to see the interaction and interest from BCF.

Many thanks to the Gowrie Hotel for supplying the beef and Guinness for the Guinness stew, the snags/chops for the BCF Cobb demo, and to Steve from the Pub for working late last night cutting a 44 gall drum in half (see pics from Derek above).  A wonderful day - will sleep well tonight!

This is a day I could not miss...  It is close to my pld stomping grounds, and a chance to take the missus away for Valentines Day (well, we had a good time anyways)

Thanks to David for his efforts, and I was amazed at the support from the publican.  Lynn was a legend.

There was food aplenty, conversation aplenty, and bellies plenty full.

I will be up for this again, and really enjoyed putting a face to names as well

Photos up soon....

Dereks's immaculate Lodge camp ovens were amazing.................
Does he reseason them evertime after use? They were so black and shiny, looked just like new!

The two main culprits - Brian Bianchi from Gowrie Junction and THE Derek. Amazed to find they had never met before today, although both are well known demonstrators. Brian is a Scout leader and teaches Toowoomba Scouts camp oven cooking, also being well known for his Millmerran Australian Camp Oven Festival demos:
(does he roll dumplings in his sleep?)

Seasoned properly in the first place.  Tongue  They will simply get a good scrub under hot water then receive a very light wipe over with olive oil.
