Mick’s Camp Oven Tip

“ If you start too hot too soon you will ruin your food. ”

Mastering heat control when you start camp oven cooking to me is the hardest part, Master this and everything else is easy.

Start out with less heat and after ten minutes check it, if you think it’s not hot enough add more coals, wait and recheck it, until you feel you have it at the right temperature.

Who Is Mick?


Mick is a loving husband and a father of three boys, who found his love and passion over ten years ago to teach and inspire others to drag out their camp ovens and have a cook up, no matter where they are.
