For many of us, camping food is something simple that we need to eat that gets us through the day while out and about. It’s often compromised further due to the lack of a home kitchen and pantry – but it need not be.
BBQs are often the focus of bush cooking due to most campsites having a fire when allowed and grilling being quick and easy, but if you are not careful, it can result in half-burnt uneven cooked food.
But what if we told you that you could be eating nice slow cooked oven-baked foods or big stews or curries instead? Well with a quality camp oven, you can. A camp oven uses fire or gas to heat and you can create super-hot spaces to bake bread, casseroles, roasts or even pieces of chicken tandoori style.
Ovens are one of the most versatile cooking appliances we have and you don't need a fancy wall oven to achieve oven-baked food cooked to perfection. Sure they take a little time, but we usually have that in bucket loads around the campsite.
So if you or one of your camping friends love to cook and eat great food, then read on as we have reviewed the best camping ovens on the market in Australia so you can enjoy varied and tasty food while out in the bush.
