I have just cooked some baked potatoes in my camp oven and have a slight funny taste, I think the oil to season  has  gone rancid as I did not wash it out.
What  can I wash it out and should I do this  before I do potatoes each time?

I used an aluminium container to put the potatoes in with some oil so it was not on the cast iron however the smell was still there.

Best way to get rid of rancid smell I have found Norm is to burn it out. If you have a hooded BBQ stick it in it for as hot as you can get it for an hour and then go through the seasoning process again. Alternatively you can do it over a fire but may take longer.

Often the rancid smell can also come from not cleaning properly as well.

i often don't oil inside my ovens when storing and if I do I use just the slightest little smear on them.

Such a useful tip. I'll take note of this as well.  Smiley

So I may be over oiling my ovens after reading this. I generally give them a fairly good spray then wipe/smear it out with paper towel. Haven't had any problems yet but then my camp ovens haven't been around all that long either.

Now that could spark quite a debate and I have seen the discussions get quite heated (bad pun) on social media at times.

I think we talked about it at the COG.

For me, I use olive oil either in a spray can or bottle.  The reason being is that I only ever carry olive oil with me for cooking so that is what I use.

Others use all sorts of oils but I think you will find that at the end of the day, any vegetable or seed oil works pretty good.
