We do all of our baking in a Weber Q100, usually by preheating it on high for 10 minutes, then putting in whatever is being baked for the amount of time specified on the package. We have done brownies, cookies, and muffins. We have also done meatloaf, which we check a few times while it is cooking. Using the grill eliminates an additional item(s) to carry and store, especially when we can get the same results as any other oven or device that mimics an oven.

I have been cooking with the Cobb for over 5 years, getting low on their briquettes though...

That is an interesting approach. I would not have thought of a Weber grill to bake with....I am trying various things that people are talking about for baking and am having a lot of fun. I still like my Omnia best. I think because it was engineered for baking and it's very small and lightweight to carry. We have a Char King grill for grilling, but I don't think it would bake.

I prefer gas cooking, but I could see where the Cobb would be nice if you don't mind carrying and using charcoal as many people prefer cooking with it.

We usually have the Q100 with us. What is your secret? I tried gingerbead and burnt the bottom so I haven't tried baking on it again....

I believe I stated it. I get the Q100 preheated on high and then bake it for the time stated on the package. I have checked things when 75% of the stated time has passed, but we have been very successful with the grill. I did, however, install a grill thermometer on my Q100 so I can keep the temperature in line with package instructions. Thermometer was purchased at Lowe's. Hardest part was determining where to drill hole in the front of the lid so that the stem of the thermometer would not contact the lid in another location as spacing is somewhat "tight."

Spare ovenette?

Just got my trailer (13' Scamp) a few weeks ago, and an oven is what I think I'll miss the most. What are you asking for a spare Ovenette (if you still have one)? You may private message me if you'd prefer ~ then, I'll try to find my inbox again...haha.

Happy trails!

I'll let you know in September if I have a spare ovenette for sale. Folks have spoken for the ones in my inventory.

Meanwhile, keep an eye on Ebay. They pop up from time to time.

I've been experimenting with baking in the small propane bbq we take along. I made cupcakes first - heated the bbq, used paper cases in the metal cupcake pan. They burned on the bottom but they all got eaten anyway. Tried again (actually 16 year old grandude tried) with great success. He put the stainless steel vegetable basket in the heated bbq with the cakes on top. This lifted the baking higher from the flames. His final batch used up a wee bit of leftover cherry pie filling from the previous night's bush pies. He put some dough in the paper case, then a small dollop of pie filling, and topped up with some more cake dough. Excellent.

Later in the week he made scones (baking powder biscuits, bannock, not sure which is the best description!) using the same method to lift the baking up from the flames. We have some cast iron we can use as a cookie sheet.

The other thing we did was to roast some meat - pork sirloin the first time and beef the second time (not sure what cut it was.) The pieces were between four and five pounds each. Both turned out very well -juicy and tender. The Yorkshire puddings were a flop - will have to do some more thinking about how to make those!

You guys are eating way too good to be camping, a can of beans and a burn't hot dog would be my choice....

Been there - done that. After several weeks it got boring! Tried adding some variety by toasting marshmallows instead but several people in the group threw up before feeling full.

X 10 on that. The only time in over 30 years that I've used the oven in an RV was when the house power went off and the meatloaf was only half done.....RV to the rescue .
