broiling fun

Dennis & Susan
We have the original broiling pan. It is no more than an inch tall and completely enameled with the same matereal as the oven. The grease goes below the cooking surface so there isn't much splatter from that and because the pan covers the majority of the bottom of the oven it doesn't get messy.
We just set the oven to 300 degrees and by the time it actually gets up to temperature the broiling part is done (the flames from the burner are really close like a salamander in a restaurant). So we leave the door closed. Donna cooks biscuts, au gratin potatoes and a vegetable cassarole during the broiling time. We just transfer the chops to a smaller pan so that everything fits on the upper shelf.

we prefer home cooking to restaurant food so making stuff in the kitchen is just part of the trip. we used to tent camp so having a real kitchen is very cool

Looks delicious! I baked in our new oven last weekend for the 1st time. I like to call this picture "Kani and her big buns" They actually turned out fantastic!

So here I am a newbi to this world of Airstream life and I have an oven that not only works but works amazingly well.
So I tryed my hand at baking chicken last night with one really big Valdada onion. I have never tried this before but, hey I like chicken and I like cooked onions so what the hell. Well I am proud to say that it was so good I couldn't believe I made it. So till next time Happy Mother's Day.

During our trip out for a week in mid-October we only ate out 1 time for lunch. Other than that we got a lot of use out of the oven and stovetop. We did cheat and buy the smallest, lightest and cheapest microwave we could find to make the baked potatoes. The oven cooked very evenly! I would never get rid of it.

Don't forget the Carbon Monoxide detector!

I value our carbon monoxide detector, and particularly when using the oven. Even with the stove vent extractor fan running, the digital detector shows a positive reading for carbon monoxide. (Usually about 20 ppm, where the danger level on the detector is stated as about 100 ppm, IIRC)Long term members of this forum will know that I do go on about this, and can bore for England on the subject, but I have good reason.
Nick.

This weekend 6 trailers gathered near Catawissa Pa at Lake Glory campground. I thought it being friday,and there were lots of kids, that we should have a pizza party. We made 6 pizzas using Trader Joes bread dough. The pizzas were the best ever. Everyone was raving about how good they were. The ovens of a 1958, a 1961, and a 1962 did all the baking. Not a single slice remained. We have baked potatoes, pies, cookies, birthday cake of a nine year olds surprise birthday party. I think anything is possible in the oven. The only problem I have had is that if you shut the door too fast, it will blow out the flame. I discovered this the hard way and had the gas ignite when I opened the door and bent over to look at the burner. The gas ignited from the burners going above. My eye lashes and eyebrows are now growing back. Scared me a great deal, but the meal was still served.
I look at my trailer as my second home. I cook in her just like I do at home. the best thing about cooking in the Airstream is there are usually neighbors to share the meal with. Nine of us ate breakfast two mornings in a row, while seated at a table in Rob Bakers Sovereign of the road. I find the meals shared this way to be very tasty and it also seems like the right way to do it.
On a note we wanted to use the oven in the new 2008 that was there, but it did not have an oven.

If anyone has trouble with things burning on the bottom when using the oven, put an unglazed ceramic tile on top of the burner guard. It will absorb and spread around the heat to make things brown more evenly.

Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt.

Ditto Frank

When we bought our first SOB the smiling salesman said..."oh most people that go camping eat out and basically use the oven for extra storage." Not us. Being that we eat pretty healthy my lovely wife cooks three squares a day and that means when we're camping too! We find the gas oven in the '87 as well as the convection / microwave in the '06 work perfectly. Though they do take a little getting used to, at least so I am told. My cooking expertise is on the outside grill. The most my wife lets me do in the kitchen is the dishes.
