DO baking on Coleman stove?

Hello,

Has anyone had luck *baking* in a DO over a Coleman stove? I can't do charcoal this trip, but would love to try some baking recipes. I do have a good setup for suspending a pan inside the DO for air circulation... I just don't have a way of doing coals on the lid...

There is this dome thing you can buy that is supposed to make it like a Dutch oven. https://smile.amazon.com/Camp-Chef-D...tch+oven+cover I haven't actually tried one, though.

I'd be more inclined to try this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Well...! Thanks for posting that second link to the oven. It's now in my Amazon cart, waiting for purchase. What a great little device!

Let me know how it works. I think we are actually allowed charcoal this year but in case it gets banned I'd like to know.

I actually have this little Coleman oven, but haven't tried it yet. Have been dying to do something in my dutch oven, but the Coleman oven may be the choice this time. If I get something baked, I'll report back

Oh yes! Please do! I can't wait to try it!

I have the Coleman oven. Weighs 7 pounds so I'm not keen to carry it around considering I've only used it to reheat pulled pork.
On my butane stove, I couldn't keep the temp below 350 F. Using it on my BBQ, I could get the heat down to 225 F. You can just use a BBQ as an oven.

Baking can be done in almost any metal container which has a lid. A Dutch oven will bake with only heat from below, but it will take longer to finish. If you want to bake something small, there are numerous videos on Youtube that are meant for backpackers. Search "dry baking" and see how it works. I have had success baking in an Imuse pot (sold by Walmart as a grease dispenser) with a 4" x 2" pan inside. I put this on a home burner set on low flame. The 4" round pan will bake 1/2 of a muffin mix. That's just right for 2 people.

A proper Dutch oven has a concave lid so coals can be piled on top, providing heat from above and below.

Try these searches... "omnia oven", and "Stovetop tandoor" . The omnia is a revamped version of the Israeli "Wonderpot". All of these devices will work on a gas cooktop. I have the tandoor... it will do everything from chicken to cupcakes, indoors or outside.

These are both quite interesting! Nice options, but since I already have a good Dutch oven and a Coleman oven, will continue looking for ways to make do with what I have!

Coleman oven

These ovens work very well. Just have to regulate the flame manually to maintain the desired tempersture. We use ours every trip to make muffins for breakfast! I usually add a double layer of aluminium foil under the muffin pan to keep the muffins lighter on the bottom. I've also used it to bake chicken and other things.

Awesome. I definitely have to put my oven through its paces.

I have a question to ask about this, but I *think* it should be another thread, so will start one (about silicone sheets, muffin pans, etc.)
