Don't go away!

Bill, I hope your choice of smiley is one more bit of humor.
(I admitted I'm a little slow!) :pump


Your haybox fits in well with Bob Hunt's wood stove, no?
:yep http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/read.php?TID=318

Cheers! (And, my Bean Hole thread stays on top of the heap!) :laugh

hayboxes et al

Ingenuity knows no limits. These ideas are great fun. Mary did you actually cook in a beanhole yet? were the coals embers from a wood fire or charcoal briquettes?
Nathan I could be wrong on this cos I was young during WW11 but I have never heard of the haybox in the U>K. I thought we all cooked with gas . We had an electric meter and a gas meter with a steel box attached into which we had to put shillings rather like a slot machine. Sometime during the evening the electric lights or the gas stove would go out and somebody would call out "put a shilling in" and the lights would come back on. As long as it was not in the "blackouts" which also occurred each evening.
Regardless of gas or electric imagine the shillings we have saved if we'de had a haybox.
Quite often the open coal fireplaces had an oven built into the wall above the and that would have been similar I guess. WOW!! The embers would have made a Great Beanpot in the garden.
I think Nathan you are right ,somebody must of had these great methods , maybe the rural areas..... Hmmmmmm I must research this.Sorry I rambled.

Of course!

Pippa, You don't think I'd recommend something I've never tried, do you? (Don't answer that and I won't elaborate.)
:wink
But, yes, I've used a bean hole, several times. I will admit to being somewhat younger, though...

The best time was when I was a Girl Scout leader so I didn't have to do the actual digging! (And the worst time was when it rained and our dinner was only about half cooked!)

I'd never heard of a haybox 'til Nathan brought it up.
:pump

Silly Me!!

:wink Of course you would'nt!
I did look up re. the Haybox and there was a mention of U.K. as Nathan said .So far I can' t find any relatives over there who have heard of them. Maybe it was a National defense secret.:E I think an old cooler chest would make a good box?
