Sometimes I cook outside and sometimes in, once in awhile we eat out. At the campground one night I made baked potatoes in the Dutch Oven and we have a propane skillet which I used to make a steak for Mike and salmon for me. I really need to clean the oven a bit but I normally use a liner and I hadn’t looked at it before packing and didn’t realize it needed cleaning – that is ok, I will continue to use liners or this little rack that is on the bottom for things like potatoes. I will season the oven good when we get home – you can do it in your kitchen oven – I have the instructions at home.
You get your charcoal started in a “chimney starter” this gets the charcoal going fairly quickly. After the charcoal is ready dump it out to one side – then put a small ring of about 6 pieces in a circle, put your oven with lid on it over that then put about 14 coals or so scattered over the top and your ready to do. Turn the pan now and then and the potatoes – they took about an hour to bake.
Wow was our table a mess that night! I hadn’t realized until I saw the photo LOL – please excuse!
While the potatoes were baking I mixed up a package of banana nut muffins – I have foil cupcake holders –you know those disposable ones? anyhow I had these all ready to go and filled when the potatoes came out I put the muffins in – 15 minutes later they were done. We had one after for dessert and saved the rest for the next day breakfast.
They didn’t round up as nice as they do at home – but they baked and that was what matter right! I’m not a gourmet cook and do not claim to be – I just want my food cooked.
Yup – good enough for me!
