G'day Wilko.

The easiest way to clean a Cobb cooker is not get it dirty in the first place.

I always cook roasts in a tray. After cooking throw the tray out (if disposable), or throw it in the washing up dish (if reusable).

Just tip the ash out of the Cobb fire basket and wipe it over with a soapy sponge.

Spray it with oil , and spread with a paper towel, before use makes it easy to clean after use.

I have a billy can with a lid and put the hot heat beads into it after cooking, put the lid on, and that gets rid of the hot ash. the billy can sits on a cake rest in a rusty cake tin so as not to burn underneath.

Hi George,

I thought of the obvious, I'll try a foil tray

Hi Peter,

doing the oil thing but it still sticks on the billy cans not a bad idea,

cheers Wilko

Wilko,

Cook your roasts and anything that spatters oil and grease around in an oven bag. Afterwards throw the bag away. Keeps oven clean.

Wilko,

Doing a roast on the tray or trivet and letiting the fat/juices run off into the moat creates one hell of a mess, and is hard to clean. On the odd occasion we do a roast we use a 28 cm non stick pan (that I angle ground the handle off) as a roasting pan. This also saves the juices for making a gravy.

Other than that we use it as on oven to heat/cook prepared meals in foil trays, make Pizza, heat pies etc.

We use it as a convenience thing. I'm not much into extensive meal preparation when camping anymore. The Cobb is great to heat an easy evening meal after sitting around the fire, 'having a few".

I love it for making camping meals easy.

Cheers,

Jim.
