Love it!

I can't remember either but I think I might have read somewhere that there is some doubt about the theory that allyouminiem may contribute to "oldtimers" disease. But I cant remember - too much consumed out of olumeaniun cans maybe.
Cheers

Hi Guys
I have an alluminium camp oven bought from the Innamincka general store, with INNAMINCKA written on the lid.
The memories come back every time i look at it.
I recommend you go for a drive out there Eric, and get your own :-)

Dozer from memory the foundry that made the camp ovens would put anything you wanted on the lid when they cast it.
Thanks
All the best

Eric I sent you an email but it may have slipped out somewhere. A few months ago I saw some at Barbeque Galore in Armidale. They had quite a few sizes including a big oval one . Sure they could help you.
cheers haze

I dont know if this is the product you are referring to, but Gurranang Foundry Products ph 02 66447920 make a range of cast alloy camp ovens and pans. They are lighter in weight than cast iron, dont rust less susceptible to cracking, and require less care and maintenance ... well thats what they claim from the ad(old 4wd mag)
Best of luck
Bob

Eric,
From memory, "Bedourie Ovens" (named after the town) used to be a brand (or manufacturer) of aluminium camp oven. They aren't the ones that would put your name etc. on the lid (they were a different mob but I can't remember who), but were definately aluminium.

At least having a brand might help in the hunt.
Cheers
Craig

Dear Eric, I have seen the Bedourie ovens at Barbecues Galore and quite a few other caping shops. Jack Absalon has a great cookbook on cooking in a Bedourie oven. Cheers Lis
