Can you use the cobb while traverling by placing it in the sink of your caravan so it cant move so it will cook while you travel ?

Has anyone tryed this with your cobb I am thinking it would be good for those late night arrivals to pull up and have the dinner ready.

Has any one got one for sale in the Brisbane area.

Thanks

Not sure about a Cobb oven but.....I did see a guy years ago with a steamer under his bonnet. Yep, he had diverted his radiator water through some tubing in the bottom of a small steamer under his bonnet and on the nights he expected a late arrival he could pop in a few vegies etc and when he stopped.......Bobs your ....well these daya bob could be your aunty or uncle....he had fresh steamed dinner.

Well there are about 15 good reasons why you shouldn't do it.

1/ Food ruined by the water from the moat.
2/ Beads put out by water from the moat.
3/ Unsupervised fire inside a moving vehicle.
4/ Enclosed space.
5/ Danger of spilling a lit bead in the caravan.

And the list goes on.

Cheers

That's only 5.

However, reason 3 would be good enough for me on its own. By the time you knew something was awry, it would most likely be too late do do anything about it.....

Yes I agree, don't even concider it! Besides where will all the smoke go?
If you want a quick meal, fit a microwave to the van run off an inverter. Certainly the best addition we've made to our work truck.

Good one BBB, I think a forum search will bring up some info about cobb cooking.

Ah though 1/3 of 15 equal the important points and I didn't want to bore the forum.

Have a look at the Dreampot if you are interested in having a meal ready when you arrive. A very short time of heating then seal it up and it keeps cooking. We have had some great meals with it when travelling. Much safer than having a fire sitting in the sink where you can't see it.

The lid would fall off then food everywhere not to mention fire. We use a Dreampot for that task - work s a treat.

You can buy them from their website. The price never changes and there is not discount if you catch them at a show (unless you buy more than one)

Cheers

Hi BBB
We use the dreampot for meals when we are travelling all day. I usually prepare the meal first thing in the morning.Then it cooks in its own heat all day.I have made stews,soups and corned silverside in the larger pot , and golden syrup dumplings in the smaller pot.I also reheat the meal once we pull up at our destination as I like my dinners really hot.But you shouln't have to do that if you have cooked your meal long enough in the morning.
Theres nothing like having your meal ready for you after a long days driving.We used it over the long weekend and were eating our dinners whilst all our travelling companions were cooking their dinner over the fire.
Having said that though after dinner on Saturday night I made a pineapple upside down cake in the campoven!
The Cobb ovens are good for roasts but for a good hearty stew you cant go past a dreampot.Give it ago,if you can afford the price,
Annette

Apart from the fire hazard, this idea (and the Dreampot) are despicable.

It doesn't offer you the opportunity to have a few beers before tea at the end of the day.
