SOUTHERN METAL SPINNERS 'CAMP OVEN MATE'

The photos below show how to set up to cook and bake using your camp oven inside a 'Camp Oven Mate' with a gas burner.  Camp Oven Mates with gas are suitale for use in a fire ban where you can use a solid fuel stove. Check out the 'Camp Oven Mate' at Southern Metal Spinners also the makers of the spun steel Bedourie Camp Oven and the Aussie Camp Oven

Folded down the Camp Oven Mate is a very compact unit

It consists of four side panels that slide together

With all the side panels together you have a cylindrical tube

Showing the unit together with the heat diffuser to one side

Heat diffuser slides inside and sits on four lugs

The gas burner goes underneath and the camp oven inside.  Note: You only need a low heat on the burner

Complete unit cooking away.  Experimental cooking indicates that if you want a nice brown crust on things like bread then remove the lid from the camp oven but leave the lid on the Camp Oven Mate for about 20 minutes prior to the end of the cooking
WARNING: THE ABOVE PHOTOGRAPH IS FOR EXHIBITION PURPOSES.  DO NOT PLACE YOUR GAS BOTTLE AS CLOSE AS I HAVE AS THE CAMP OVEN MATE GENERATES A LOT OF HEAT
