The "Outback Oven" has a rudimentary (warm, hot, burnt
range) thermometer that can be used with or without their
product. The thermometer sits atop the pot and can be
read through the chimney of the tent. OO comes on two
sizes, one with a covered 10" pan, a heat diffuser, and a
metalized cloth "tent" that surrounds the covered pot/pan to
form a convection oven when atop a trail stove. You can
bake a variety of things in it - OO's own mixes or your own
pre-packaging. It weighs ounces, exclusive of the pan and
the smaller one fits well over my Peak I pots. Check it out
in the outfitters, Campmor, etc.

... I've done the basics, bread,
pies, tortillas, but I'm looking for new stuff, something that will blow
away the through hikers on the A-Trail.
Also, does anyone know of a rugged remote thermometer? I would like
to be able to keep an eye on my temperature without "opening" the oven. Has
anybody seen anything that would solve this for me? Thanks in advance!
I've collecting new food ideas for our yaerly BWCA trip. We've
also baked bread it's great for supper and french toast the next day. This
is always a big hit, but the most popular thing to come out of the stone
oven is Pizza! Just get the ready to go just add cheese mix from the groc.
and add your own toppings. Make sure you choose stuff that will keep if you
don't have a way to keep it cool. ( hard cheese, beef stick, peperoni...)
Here's a list of out top 8 BWCA meals

Eggs with beef stick
Stuffed pocket bread.

As for a thermometer, I haven't used one but , how about a meat thermometer.
