Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

We use Corel plates, ones we bought for our tralier 20 years ago. They wipe off real easy. And Glenn, soap is completely biodegradable in soil, unless it is perfumed. Sorry, but you need a new rationalization to your methods.

When in the backcountry I take little fire starters I make of loosely rolled toilet paper soaked in wax and pressed flat. Those logs would be a good idea for starting fires where all the wood available is crappy. Once the heat gets up then just about anything will burn. I might have to pick a couple up.

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Paper plates is a family tradition.

You give the kiddies the paper plates to decorate. Keeps them busy before dinner. I'd recommend lead-free markers.

Then you eat off them, and then use them as fire starter.

Try that with your Corel.

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

We just give the kids a stick and a knife and tell them to whittle. Lots of good kindling is created.

I don't like the feeling when a steak knife slices into my thigh when I use paper.

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Hi: Jim Bennett...What kind of steak requires a steak knife The ones I buy can be cut with a plastic knife and don't require the use of Polygrip. Alf

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

I do the grilling on the road & at home. Other than that I'm regulated to cooking one dish at home.. chicken curry, which I must admit it pretty good..

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

I don't have plastic knives either, no likey.

I love curried dishes. Indian foods with all their tasty spices is a favourite of mine, and Lisa's.

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Indoor gas appliances use a lower gas pressure than outdoor gas appliances. Check the actual pressure req. for the appliance before modifying it's location. Cheers Mike

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

Baglo, I know this is old news, but I'm curious if you still have that Coleman camp oven ... and if you like it?

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

I still have it, but I'll likely leave it at home unless I plan to use it. It weighs seven pounds.
I've only used it once to re-heat pulled pork.
For me, it's a novelty. Might make brownies some time or other.

I think I bought it because I'd run out of stuff to buy for the trailer....

Re: Camp Chef's Outdoor Camp Oven

LOL. I am a baker at heart and am intrigued by the possibility of cookies after a long day's work/play. Pizza is also a pull. If anyone else is of similar persuasion and has one of these Coleman ovens, do tell. It's pretty reasonably priced.
