Con­stant crav­ings

I’VE EN­JOYED quite a few camp oven roasts in my time and I never tire of them. I think the at­mos­phere that sur­rounds what can only be de­scribed as the rit­ual of the roast is what makes the meal so ex­quis­ite. Ev­ery­one has their own way of do­ing it and I don’t pre­tend to know the best way, but there are a few things you should do that will help the out­come no end. First, don’t let any­one but the cook play with the fire. That’s num­ber one. Next, start with a big fire some hours ear­lier in or­der to get a good bed of coals go­ing, then keep a good sup­ply of medium-sized split logs on the go so you can keep your sup­ply of coals up. Thirdly, try to con­trol the urge to check how it’s go­ing. You should be able to smell and hear if your roast is cooking away nicely. Trust your in­stincts. And fi­nally, don't for­get to team it with a crack­ing dessert. In my opin­ion you can’t go past a bread and but­ter pud­ding – that’s my crown­ing glory at any bush cook-up. Try these two recipes and give your chop­pers a scrump­tious camp roast and a sweet treat chaser.
