I am going away for 5 days soon and was wondering how do you get on in caravan parks with camp oven cooking, my  Heritage caravan has a full stove but I would still like to cook outside.

I will be going to The Entrance where I was as a young boy growing up in the 50's doing some prawning, I cook the prawns outside on a gas stove in a boiler which is no problem however the smoke from the heat beads starting up is what I am worried about.

I have a choofer made out of a gas bottle and a small metal table for the heatbeads that I use.

I have seen Derek cooking in a caravan park so what did you do, ask if it is OK or just did it?

thanks Norm

we use an induction stove top outside for the camp

we have a Kogan induction cooker and have no problems with it

the cooker can be adjusted to start at lower wattages etc, see manual

Press the “ ” button to start the unit. The LED display will show [ 00 ].
• Heating function setting: press the FUNCTION button once, and the LED display will
show [ P8 ] (as the default power setting is 1800W). The HEAT indicator will light up,
meaning the cooker is heating up. The power can be adjusted by pressing the “ ” or
“ ” buttons to alter to the following values: P1 (400W) – P2 (600W) – P3 (800W) – P4
(1000W) – P5 (1200W) – P6 (1400W) – P7 (1600W) or P8 (1800W).

we had to learn how to run the beast , which took some effort , when we used a dutch oven , to cook some beef cheeks in stout and green pepper corns

start the cooker at power setting P8 (1800W ) to bring to the boil and reduce to P1 ( 400W ) to simmer till cooked

no smoke which makes a big difference , but

Best to ask Norm.  Show them what you are going to be using and most will be fine with it.

I usually use the Weber Baby Q these days though.

My first holiday as a kid that I can remember was at Tuggerah Lakes back in about 1959/60.  I remember we drove there from Windsor and simply pulled into a dirt track and put up the tent.

Maggie and I called into The Entrance a couple of years ago and booked into Dunleith Tourist Park just over the bridge for two nights.  We enjoyed being there so much ended up staying for two weeks.

Thanks Derek,

Mum worked at Pinehurst Guest house in the 50s and would go prawning at the wharf in front, the chef would then cook the prawns and stay up nearly all night having a feast. I can't eat prawns out of a fish shop or Coles and Woolworth they must be fresh.

The Dunleith caravan is going and highrise building will be put there. We stay at Two Shores as Dunleith caravan park is tight for the Heritage.
I get on well with the owners of Two Shores so I didn't think it would be a problem if I asked.

I was there when the two prawners drowned last year they fell into a hole and did not have a belt around there waders and filled up with water. Norm

Dunleith have a little tractor with a tow ball on it and put us on the site with it so all worked good for us.
