Good looking meal! Thumbs Up That's some heavy iron to be packing in a 'yak. Sounds like a good time though. What is that disk being used as a coal table/ground cover under the ovens?

I have been a bit slow on replying but thought I might get around to some answers:

BigCAT asked: What is that disk being used as a coal table/ground cover under the ovens?

Gibguy’s Reply:

The disk is a food grade drum lid that I use to reflect the heat of the charcoal onto the Dutch Oven. Often times we are camping in a riverbed, which has a lot of soft sand plus can even have a water table flowing below that. All that acts in a manner to draw away the heat from the charcoal. The Drum Lid also acts as a stable pad on the soft sand plus can be placed in the bottom of the canoe to prevent the Dutch Oven from punching holes in the bottom.

I often time use the lid with a 15 inch x 26 inch firebox and grill that has a 4 inch metal wall. A kind of above modified above ground key hole design that has been talked about in previous postings at this Forum.



The 15 inch x 26 inch firebox and grill is something I had constructed a number of years ago at a local welding shop. Often time on permit related rivers there are requirements to use a fire pan with a 4 inch rim. This firebox is actually designed to accept up to (2) twelve inch Dutch ovens side by side. Once we are done cooking cut firewood can be added to the box using the coals to get a nice fire started.



Finally the design includes a grill for steaks or other meats, makes a pretty good shish kabob holder as well.



Aggroman asked: How many were on that trip?

On this Trip we had 17 Adults, 1 child and 1 dog.

More probably to follow.

That’s it for now.
