stone use

I use it for pizza and stromboli. Love it. Use a wood paddle picked up at any kitchen store and just heat your oven 500 plus if possible, then put the pizza on it with the paddle and enjoy.

The problem with the small ovens is that they heat and cool quickly so the temperature varies more as the burner only knows on and off. A lot of people (us included) put some mass in the oven to even out the heat. A pizza stone works. So would a chunk of sheet iron. What you really want is anything that slows down how fast the oven heats when the burner is on and cools when the burner is off.

I suggest you use a stone bought from a kitchen store for ovens. I've seen rocks explode in a fire when it has water trapped in it. Shale and slate are especially lethal, but other stones can also have trapped moisture in them.

Our pizza stone recently split into 3-4 pieces when a baking dish over flowed and spilt onto it. The pieces still work though in dampening the temperature fluctuations. And with the stone, it does take a lot longer to heat up and cool down for sure.

But I was hoping it would make the heat more even and reduce burning in the centre with our muffins. But that's still a problem.

Also I would recommend getting an oven thermometer.

We have a 25" oven, a bit larger than the usual 22", big enough to do small roasts and chickens. No turkeys though.

Nice. Although I must admit that we're sort of turkey'd out right now.

We did find a small, 10# turkey for the Christmas Holidays, and my wife tells me now it probably would have fit in the trailer's oven. So we'll have to give it a go too.

But finding a smallish turkey can be tough. Most of them at the store were huge.

We had problems with things we baked burning on the bottom also. I took a cookie sheet and with the ball end of a ball peen hammer put dimples all over it. We set what we are going to bake on top of the cookie sheet in a separate pan. This allows circulation, but there is no direct heat. And, my biscuits are not burned on the bottom anymore.

I have never used the oven. I only lit it to see if it worked. We bought a halogen oven that plugs in and we use an electric pressure cooker with the halogen oven when cooking big meals for family vaca time like at Disney or to just get away on weekends. When it's just the DW and I we cook on the fire outside like the old days when we tent camped... I can only guess the oven would hear the inside of the trailer up quite a bit. Btw, the halogen oven and pressure cooker were dirt cheap at Home Depot. Both for less than 100...

We used a pizza stone all the time we had our rig. Forgot to take it out when we hit the road one morning - need a new one shortly afterwards. The original owners had a set of 6" square ceramic tiles in the oven when we bought it, but we swapped them out.

We used our oven frequently, often for baking bread, but also for Lancashire hotpot, stew & dumplings, shepherd's pie and other things we enjoy.

We turned down several decent used rigs before we found a good one with an oven. A must in our book, either electric or gas.

Good multi layered baking sheet will solve burning problems for cookies. They also make them for muffins. For roasting we use a Cast iron dutch oven. Our food come out great.

We used our oven lots last year for baking and pizza.

Things I found you need a oven thermometer they seem to be way out.

Also for what ever reason we found the oven worked better with the stove cover in the open position.

Also when cooking in it we found just to turn what ever was in there half way through the cooking process.

I may try a stone in there this year but we will see. So far it does what we need.

Good luck.
