7/05/16  Camp Oven or Weber Baby Q Gluten Free Lemonade Sultana Scones/ Damper

Ingredients: 4 cups GF self-raising flour; 160g sultanas (4 small packets); pinch salt; 250ml Longlife UHT cream or 300ml pouring cream; lemonade – 300ml or 350ml if using long-life cream; pinch salt

  2. Place 4 cups of GF self-raising flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre, add salt and sultanas. Pour in the cream and lemonade. Mix the ingredients together with a butter knife to make a soft dough. Add more flour if too watery. Dough is sticky at this stage.

Alternately place in preheated Weber Baby Q on trivet over alfoil convection tray or double layer of foil.

Snow Peak Fire Pit

6/06/2015  One of my favourite bits of camping gear is my Snow Peak fire pit that I got a couple of years ago from Drifta Camping & 4WD. I love a camp fire and have one going every chance I get, so we’ve used the fire pit a lot in our travels. Not only does it work well, it’s also a good looking bit of kit and I’ve had people coming over to find out what it is and where I got it from.

It’s well constructed from good quality stainless steel and very tough. I reckon it’ll be a family heirloom that our kids and then the grandkids will use. It’ll definitely outlast me.

The fire box sits up off the ground, so it won’t burn the grass and I’ve been able to use it in places where only enclosed fire containers are allowed. The first picture below shows the cooking grill removed and on the ground while I get a good bed of coals going.

The whole thing cleans up quickly which is great, and folds flat and packs into a heavy duty canvas bag that I tuck away in the footwell behind the driver’s seat when we travel. It’s a little beauty and I love it.
