    Not game cooking, and no recipe

    I just managed to get my grubby little flippers an a single penguin sized cast iron camp oven .
    Seasoned it yesterday, and keen to give it try out tonight...but.

    Plan is to make a sheppards/cottage pie in the thing. I have my minced beef etc and mashed spud all ready to go, but need to know the best way from here.
    Do I : cook it with lid on, on top of wood burner
    Cook it lid on IN woodburner
    Us the gas bbq with either lid on/off options.
    I like to have the spud browned on top.

    On top of burner, load hot coals on lid to brown potato.

    we make shepherds pie this way...
    take left over roast mutton and put it through the mincer,add handful of raisins or sulatnas,similar quantity of mixed veg, chuck it in a dish add enough liquid to make it moist..if any gravy left over from roast chuck that in too....chuck ya mashed spuds on top,dont forget to play rally car driver in the top with a fork....
    chuck in oven on medium heat till liquid starts to bubble and then call it done.
    to brown the spud you need heat to come down onto it...maybe chuck coals on the lid....

    End result was great for the meal. But not happy with the (fairly pricey) cast iron cook ware from Stephens.
    The pot lid turned out to be some sort of plastic Which obviously too a dislike to hot embers

    Try cooking in coarse salt, I did some pork belly on in the Webber, put down a thick layer of salt on cast iron plate, put pork on top, skin up, cover completely with another thick layer of coarse salt and bake, I had a thermometer in mine and work on temp for cooking. Wipe off all the salt a enjoy. The crackling is wow. Also cooked some tiger prawns this way, really nice!
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Sounds like you might have been had Pengy.
    It's actually hard work cooking in a camp oven. You have to be around to keep an eye on it. I find it best to have a fire going to make embers and shovel them to the oven to keep the heat constant.
    My first experience with a camp oven was about 47 years ago (give or take a few days). We had something that looked remarkably similar to a wood pigeon in it. Stuck it on a roaring fire and went away for a couple hours. Thinking that when we returned we would have a well cooked bird. What we had was a charred mess. I can honestly say I did not eat "that" bird that looked like a pigeon.
