Mick talking about making popcorn in a camp oven.

Are you looking for something simple and easy to cook in a camp oven that the kids will love, well try popcorn it’s really cheap from the supermarket and really easy to do in a camp oven.

The first thing you need to do is get your camp oven hot, place it on your heat source, it doesn’t matter if your using coals, heat beads or gas. and let it heat up Once it’s hot, pour in some oil. two to three tablespoons is a good amount and let the oil heat up.

Im using a 9Qt pre-seasoned Campfire camp oven.

Now pour in a layer of popcorn in the bottom of the camp oven and put your lid on. And soon enough it will start popping away, you should be able to hear it. Wait for them to pop and put them in a bowl and enjoy them with whatever flavouring you want I like mine plain with a bit of salt.

Anyway, camp oven lovers If you love that recipe, make sure you check out my website for over 50 free camp oven recipes.

    I make a lot of popcorn in my Dutch oven. I crack the lid just a little after the corn starts to pop to let the steam vent. Keeps the popcorn from becoming chewy.
