Hi guys - I like to go camping lots in my motorhome and I love to cook normal nutritious meals while away. I also like to grow many of my own ingredients in the garden. While I recently got badly burnt from a guy using hydro carbons on a fire -that has not deterred me from using fire properly as I have always tried to do. I look forward to the many cooking tips that you guys might have. I have always enjoyed Dereks cooking photos and recipes when I have seen them.
 

I love to go camping and cook great food.
Please be fire safe and don't use hydrocarbons on your fire.

Welcome to our little forum, Dale.  You will have to try and get to one of our camp oven gatherings sometime.

Thanks guys - would love to see what you guys do sometime Derek. I used to camp in tents but the motorhome is more comfy for the wife. I think my camp oven is 10 inch -thats measuring the diameter of the top rim -Is that where you measure it? I need that figure for the heat bead calcualtor! My lid is quite curved so could I use a cake tin edge (cheese cake detachable side thingy) to keep the top heat beads from falling off?

Yes Dale. Camp ovens are measured in inches across the diameter.

One way I have seen of stopping the coals falling off on a round top oven is by winding a length of chain around the lid.

I'm assuming that diameter is at the top (lid level) as mine is 1.5 inches smaller at the bottom.  Chain is a good idea. Thanks

g,day and welcome .but i dont know how you folks can call a house on wheels camping . but i dont want to get into a debate over it . just thinking about the chain on the lid idea sounds pretty good , then i thought why not just roll a ring/hoop  of flat steel say inch by 1/8 or somewhere around that size to suit the oven lid in question . easy done on a ring roller (which i have ) or bent around a bit of anything to form the ring then weld the ends together .

I have seen people successfully roll a ring like that Johno as well.  The chain though is usually much easier to get your hands on. 

Either way, as long as it works.

A home on wheels is not camping! Whoa... I've done the sleeping on the ground with a "hip hole", a swag, tents and so on and think at this stage of life a motorhome and cooking in a CO outside is camping.
Sounds like campingnut has a Dutch Oven if the heat beads are falling off, a chain or ring would both work.

Rob.
 

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd
