I have not cooked Sea Food in my camp oven yet.
For the people that have.
Does seafood leave an after taste/smell in your camp oven?
I know of people that will not cook meat on the same BBQ that seafood has been cooked on. Hence my question.

I am only using one cast iron camp oven at present.  It is my 25th Year IDOS Anniversary 10 inch deep Camp Chef.

We cook everything in it - seafood, chicken, curries of all sorts, stews, braises, roasts with pork roast being the favourite.

I always wash in hot soapy water (the same water we do the dishes in) then coat the inside and outside lightly with olive oil.

No after taste or smell from any of the food groups.

Thanks Derek.
I have now got my boat ready to go fishing after a 2 years of no fishing.
Now for some baked (camp oven style) South Aussie. KG Whiting.

Yes I am the same, I use my ovens for everything, and I also wash then with soapy water.
Yesterday I cooked prawns for a curry, so tonight I used the same oven roasting dinner, this has left a nice fresh coating of oil on the oven.

What is my biggest issue is we like a lot of tomato based dishes (curries, braises and stews) and they play havoc with the inside seasoning.

However a good roast seems to put it back on again so we try to alternate between tomato dishes and non-tomato dishes Smiley
