Turducken is Delicious in an Airstream!

We have cooked Turducken on two occasions and also baked pies and cakes. We would not be without the oven. Granted, storage is a premium but an oven is a necessity for us.

Check out Cajun Food - Turducken - Crawfish - King Cakes - for Turducken. Including delivery, the price is about what you would pay for good quality lunch meat. Everything except the wing and drumstick bones are edible.

Looking forward to some fluffy, fresh-baked biscuits later this week.

I never heard of that but it sounds delicious. I'll have to get me some. I can just smell the aroma wafting around the Airstream now...

I did in my prior Airstreams. It's hard to get a good frozen pizza that's been microwaved.

Back Yard Camping

Boy are we (and the neighbors) glad there's an oven in the AS. The NW's big wind storm has left us withouth power for four days and it's likely to be 3-4 more until power is restored. The house has electricity from the generator we bought "for the trailer". We can run the gas furnace which is good since temperatures are dipping below freezing at night but since the range is 220V we've been cooking in the trailer. I can't remember frozen pizza ever tasting so good

This little inconvenience gives us a small appreciation of what the South goes through following huricanes. It's also a wake-up call as to how unprepared this region is for a big natural disaster like a major earthquake.

Oven Use

We have a 99 Excella and use the oven daily, from making toast in the morning to roasting in the evening. We always barbecue outside to keep the cooking orders out but would be lost without the oven.

I use my oven for biscuits and to warm up foods I prepare in advance such as King Ranch Casserole, Chicken enchiladas, etc. The cooktop gets most of the use but it sure is nice to have the oven when you need it. I don't have a microwave in the trailer yet so the oven is a necessity at times. I've even had other Airstreamers borrow the oven during rallys because theirs wasn't working.

The oven is used on every trip.
But how often? You ask.
More often than the microwave,
but less often than the toilet,
and about as often as the shower.

Martin (empresley) Did you just write that poem for us? We have a traveling minstrel of sorts, too cool. Great poem, liked the humour, we need to laugh at ourselves, breath of fresh air, and I like the unity ending. Clever. Oh you talented people here!

I posted before but I will again. We use the oven, nice to help out the furnace with some baking or heating up the ironstone dishes to keep our food warm longer in cool weather, don't always have electric. I made pizza in the frying pan in July during the heat wave. We no longer have a microwave but I would use it if there was one built in, but not instead of, no no.

If you own an Airstream then yes, I wrote that for you.
Who would have thought; non-edible inspiration coming from an oven.

Thanks for the comments & Merry Christmas!,


ps Would you like an original Christmas poem with subtle reference to airstreams?

Many people overlook the fact that the oven is a multi use device.
  • It is used for cooking
  • It is a storage area
  • It is a smoke alarm tester
What else do you use your oven for?

I rarely use the oven because it's a 'through the wall into the bedroom' design of the 60's (?) and I'm too lazy to a.) take all the crap that's stored in front and on top of it out of the way and b.) take anything I didn't want overheated out of the cupboards above it. I don't think this was Airstream's best design decision.
