    Greetings from Samford ( Brisbane), Queensland, Australia.

    I have just swapped using camp ovens in favor of seeing how I go with a a smoker, and I have already won favor with family and friends, at lot of it down to the rub recipes and guidance from this site ........

    As the 'dedicated fire man' of the Hotshins Camp Oven Cooking team I'll still get to burn Ironbark (timber).



    Welcome from Indiana, USA.

    Awesome article and link... looks like fun and great food... also I appreciate the fun play on words for your team name.

      Welcome from Las Vegas.

      That is a great link. Here in our neighborhood seemingly everyone has at least one of those three-legged Dutch Ovens. We rotate hosting monthly parties where everyone brings their pot and cooks something for the evening meal... charcoal below and on top.


        A hearty welcome from Illinois. Nice article.


          Welcome from Baltimore, MD! That festival sounds like great fun!

                        Welcome to the Pit. Those recipes sound down right mouth watering.

                            Hi Spinaker

                            what level Cast Iron Nut are you at?

                            I have surpassed the 50 oven level - though I do have some real favorites. There are a lot more collectors now than a while ago.( and many ovens may never see coals again ).

                            I have about 10 ovens. But I have over 100 pans and griddles. Yeah I also have many pans that will never see a stove top again. Hotshins

                          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
