Found this nifty simple idea to lift your trays out of a camp oven.

Many of you here would know it from Facebook pages.

I heated up some salmon patties yesterday and tried some scones today using gas.

Punch 4 holes in a tray and connect wire. Simple and makes life easier.

Experimented using only bottom heat with these and placed two together.

Flipped them after 5 mins so nothing would burn.

Turned out OK.

I remember when Bruce and Patricia first put this up on my Facebook page and I was quite impressed.

Looks good and the scones look ok as well.

Multi grips are old school Rolly  Grin

As Molly would say " Do yourself a favour"  Smiley

You will kick yourself for not making one sooner  Wink

It must be difficult for a tradionalist like you Jeff to see camp ovens on gas.

But I bet my ba$&s that if the old timers had it close at hand, they would have used it  Cheesy

I have often thought about how to get heat on the lid using gas.

But....... This little old Millard gas cooker does have a griller that could somehow be adapted Smiley

The Camp Oven Mate http://southernmetalspinners.com.au/product/camp-oven-mate-heat-shield/ directs heat down onto the lid of the camp oven.

Well mate I guess you have to use what you can. We have done our last few cook-ups using heat beads. It has just been too hot for making a fire. Shocked Wink

Jeff, are those last few cook ups the first time that you have used heat beads?

Has anyone tried this tray lifter method here?

I put up this post to share the idea because I reckon it's a simple idea worth doing.

I rarely make scones or damper, but will use this tray when the urge comes again.

Yes mate it certainly was. We used Hot Shots after seeing Rory using them. We are still learning to manage the heat but we got it right on this roast pork.

Getting back to the tray, I have never had a use for one.

I generally do my baking in the big Bedourie and use a 10 inch pizza tray and I can easily lift the tray out with a kitchen glove.

How humiliating. My scones mistaken for salmon patties  Grin Grin Grin

The tray is still good for me as a 10" tray sitting in the bottom of a 12" campoven is close to a tight fit.

I have another pkt of scone mix in the van, so will have another crack soon  Smiley

Good looking pork, Jeff  Smiley

Yes Derek,
A few years ago I was working as a desalination fitter mechanic and all the reverse osmosis kits came with these stainless steel mounting straps. They were not used and were binned. I took some home thinking that they would come in handy for something and they did. A counter sunk screw goes into the eye bolt to keep them together and they work a treat.
Stubby.

Great job Stubby. I love diy contraptions. Certainly looks a bit fancier than some wire jammed through a baking tray, which I also thought was a good idea. Congrats Chally on your pork. She turned out perfect. I love heat beads. I find them easier to adjust the temperature with.
 

Its not burnt. Just really well done.
