Camp Oven Coal Positioning
Camp Ovens are designed to use hot coals, wood embers or heat beads, which are placed underneath the pot and on the lid. This form of heating is the only way you can braise or bake with a cast iron camp oven. While your oven will retain a lot of heat, it is important to keep the cooking coals fresh to avoid cooling before your dish is done.
