I played with one and was not excited. Price is steep for what it is.
I have been using a couple of Aussie Fish Smoker Cooker with heat beads on my camping tour bus. For around $65 they are versitile and can be used for anything.

Peter,
got one and the cook (and she is a dinkum cook) loves it. Cool touch exterior while the prawns are sizzling, cooks pizza beautifully, fresh bread in the middle of nowhere, roasts, vegies, grilled chicken - you name it (havent used it as a smoker yet cos I got a million excuses for not catching fish!)

got the carry bag & cook book too, both handy. Yes they are a tad exxy but you have a compact oven/griller/smoker that can sit on a vinyl tabletop, be picked up and moved around, keep the shower/ washing up water hot for ages after cooking, then keep the tent warm at night. Otherwise kill the heat beads & pack it away.

bonus of using a couple of heat beads so less worry about using wood fires or gas.

Purely my point of view, but fresh hot bread is pretty hard to pass up anytime, let alone in the boonies.

thanks just might give one a go - have a webber -the square black one - run it on gas- cooks like a beauty but it smokes to high heaven - have the cfa around every night for dinner. the webber is also difficult to clean and it cannot sit on anything except a steel wire stand. regards peter

I got one in preparation of the big trip - works very well esp on the balcony with out complaints from neigbours about smole - my minni gas webber is now redundant! At start up the fire lighters put out big flames and a kerro smell but once the beads are alight it can be used inside below the kitchen exhaust without the smoke alarm going off . I like the idea of using a camp oven for bread etc however in practice there are less and less places you can have an open fire - the cobb works well for both bread and to BBQ. And yes even with 5 heat beads it cooks hot enough to do a good steak - ie sizzle - no stewing.
