would work but doesn't seem practical.
Hubby proudly sent me a pic of the small roast with veg he had cooked in the Cobb when he took the Boler
on a business trip (nicer to stay by the lake and sit by a fire than eat fried food then watch the tube) but I can't find the photo now.
However, the pics attached from the Cobb website are true enough -- other than that our Cobb was that sparkling clean for hmmm, a good two or three campouts at most. The small central bbq pit at the bottom holds the coals and helps concentrate the heat around and up.
We have had to add more coals half-way through, if it's an especially big roast or dense bird. That can be tricky, to shift the meat to get at the coal pit.
And, like I said, even though the lovely drippings fall
in the well, it's impossible to strain out the coal ashes, so no gravy!
We don't use power when camping, so the Cobb is a slow-roast alternative to a big hot wood or coal BBQ when you need chicken pieces or steaks you can turn over the flames or move to the edges of the fire.
If you go on a long trip and are sick of BBQ outside or boiled/fried inside, it's a beautiful thing to have a roast. Read a book, keep your feet up.
