Micks Camp Oven Roast Lamb Recipe


This roast lamb recipe has been our family’s go-to when cooking a camp oven roast lamb, the brown sugar marinade creates a crispy skin that’s delicious, the longer you can leave it to marinate the better it’s going to be.

Check out the Cast Iron Boys cooking the Camp Oven Roast Lamb Recipe with peter Spider Everitt from the Great Australian Door Step.

  1. Hi Mick,
    Your Cast Iron Boys book is still one of the first books I pack away with the camp ovens when going on a trip. Peach Cobbler is a favourite.

    Hi Mick,
    Can you tell me where I can buy those empty reusable pouches from to put coffee, sugar, spices and other condiments in? I have tried searching but cannot see anything like your pouches, that stand up and have a side spout. Thanks so much
