    Default Camping oven

    Anyone got an idea what I can look at that can be used as or is a camping oven:

    Something small, that can either work with 12v or gas (I have a WeberQ)

    I was thinking of something like the road chef, but that does not require me to offer my nuts for adoption to pay for it

    Do you really think R4400 is too much? I won't ever buy one since it is not something I will use, but it sounds reasonable in today's crazy world.

    Or am I way out of touch?

    We have a Kexin gas stove / oven. Very light, not to big, but don't know if they are still available locally.

    That oven is TINY (two pies - max - mammas pies) And then you wait minimum 2 hours for them to cook

    I am assuming the [email protected] = WeberQ?

    We have done roast leg of lamb, roast chicken, muffins and bread in our Weber Q's. We have the Q1200 as well as the Q200, I soon realised the error of my way with the Q200 and and immediately converted it to the Q220 by buying the lid complete with thermometer.

    We have almost the same one except ours have the 2 burners on top and runs off a normal cylinder. Ours is quite heavy but solidly built. Imho the canisters should last for one baking session maybe 2 ? You do have pre heat and then watch the thermostat constantly in order to keep the temperature constant otherwise you are going to burn your bread/scones or chicken. Otherwise worth it

    Do I assume it needs to be 12V Andrew?

    Thus the ability like the Auzzies to cook/heat your food whilst driving, ready for when you "In darkness we find camp"

    Then gas is not an option.

    12v is the option but gas would be preferred. I would like a quicker oven that the one you are referring to..

    We have a small gas oven in our Jurgens Caravan at the Vaal Dam. I prefer the WeberQ due to the size. It is more difficult to control the temperature in the caravan oven due to the size and the location of the burner. It get hot real quick. Potato bakes are continually burnt at the rear where the burner is, too much effort to keep opening the oven and rotating. Muffins come out better in the Q.

    Not suggesting that you don't use the correct gear but using the correct trivet and the correct aluminium foil base we find that the Q operates well enough as an an oven to not want to buy another.

    Any suggestions on that foil base and trivet.. Weber does not sell them in SA anymore

    If the canisters "freeze" up, then they are not properly "seated" on the nozzle connection

    You don't say what you want the oven for. I fin that a simple cast iron pot works well. Just put a grid in the bottom depending on what you are heating.
