Coleman oven

Anybody use one of these? I bought one but it only seems to work with a Coleman stove. It's a great idea, it sits on the burner for heat, folds flat and has a temp gauge. Sometimes I don't want to haul out the dutch oven

I've used it on my butane stove, but I couldn't keep temp below 350F. I moved it over to my Weber Baby Q and managed to maintain 225F ( I was reheating pulled pork ).
Should work on any stove where you don't have wings or can move the wings out of the way.

Sometimes I get a hankerin' for baked munchies. You gave me an idea, I was thinking of outside cooking. Wonder if it might work inside on the stove? Don't think the aroma of brownies would be too objectionable!

Could get a bit warm in the trailer.

Good point. No insulation.

That Coleman oven weighs seven pounds. I don't remember if it is still in the trailer or not. If it is, it's in the bench for things rarely used.
I do faux baking. Pick up some cinnamon buns at the local bakery. Wrap in foil and put them on an overturned pan in the Weber Q.
No dishes. Conserves water, and energy ( mine ).

Coleman oven

I have one of the Coleman ovens also and like Jim have yet to use it. They have been around a long time. When I worked on the Selway River in Idaho for the U.S. Forest Service in 1969 and 1970 we had a Packer who handled the livestock and cooking chores for the trail crew. His name was Al Maynard. His skills with the Coleman oven were legendary. He'd make huckleberry pies.Cinnamon rolls, bread, biscuits etc. etc. he had it down. He had guided elk hunters for many years when laid off in the fall including the great writer and rifle expert Jack O'Conner. Just takes practice I guess. Wish I would have paid more attention.

Coleman oven

Here's an idea, at a rally, someone could organize a top of the stove oven baking contest. I might even get out my rare and very heavy Raemco 7 in 1 stove, griddle, oven, smoker, bar-b que etc. anybody else got an affliction known as castironitis? Another subject for another time
