Cobb Cooker

I use a Cobb Cooker for BBQ, Grilling and Baking while living in our Scamp. The Cobb is great for baking, good for BBQ and works for grilling. Has anyone else here discovered the Cobb?

Sorry about this post, this is my first visit to the cocking section. The Cobb seems almost to be a cooker of choice!

Mine is old enough that the base was plastic. It finally cracked, and I got a stainless replacement.

Yep, I have used mine for baking & cooking also, they work great and use very little charcoal. I have the same truck as you too.

I have one too. Nice units. Haven't used it as much as I'd like to though. I see there are some new accessories out now also.

Love mine, can cook anything, when you have the accessories, from beautiful artisanal breads to bacon and eggs. Haven't baked a cake yet, but might give that a try real soon. terry r.

I don't have any accessories, I lift a pan that fits under the dome above the cooking plate with three stones of the same size that I pick up off the ground at the camp site. I bake bread, brownies, cakes, pizza and cookies using that method. I never thought of putting water in the moat for artisanal bread until I read it on this site. The Cobb has become my camp oven since our Scamp does not have one built in. Before the Cobb, and in areas that don't allow charcoal, I use an Outback Oven over a one burner backpacking stove.

I love the Cobb too! We haven't cooked on it in a while so we dug it out, cleaned it up and are taking it on our next trip. We added most of the accessories when we were using it a lot. We really don't use the extension or chicken roaster much but use all the others. You can still get some accessories like this one for baking and roasting:
Amazon.com: Cobb Fenced Roast Rack: Kitchen & Dining
The company is coming out with a smaller compact Cobb and a bigger roaster as well as a propane version.

This reminds me of our Flavor-Wave Oven in it's versatility. However, the Flavor-Wave uses 110v electricity and I'll bet it's slightly less and "efficient." I'm gotta check this out.

I was interested in the Cobb, but read several reviews on Amazon that said it was hard to clean. Since we plan to boondock, I backed off buying one in consideration of water usage.

Do any of you Cobb owners find it hard to clean?

You can build a rocket stove for a lot less than buying a Cobb. If you Google 'rocket stove' you'll find tons of good, and cheap, ideas.

Didn't google it because I personally am not interested in building a cooker, but thank you for letting us know it's an option. Some folks like to do whatever it takes to save money, some like to build because they like to build, some like to purchase ready-made because they can't build, and some just like to buy quality gear.

Different strokes...

Llfalcon, I spray the dome and moat. If you want it to go back to the "unseasoned" stainless look, Bar Keepers friend is a Cobb's best friend. Take some with you, or wait until you get it home. The accessories are very well made and non stick, so those clean up easily.

Supposedly, you can pop it in the dishwasher, but I have not tried that.

Silly me, I thought people who boondock LIKE to save money. Lesson learned: never assume

While camping, I don't do more than wash the grease away. When I get home, I put it in the dish washer. Once a year, I clean it with Bar Keeper's Friend to bring it back to as new appearance.

Phillip, I must state that at retail price, Cobb Cookers are expensive for what you get! I bought mine in the late 90's on close out from Camping World for less than $50.

I got one from Woot, when they were getting out of business in USA. Then I bought 3, one for each kid, on close out from Camping World, for $45, each. I also bought the floor model for something like $20.

It had a rubber foot missing and no box. I figured, if nothing else, it could be a parts grill. Ended up getting a foot for free and use it when I want to cook additional food, using a different accessory.

Use it at home all the time.
