If you are going to buy a camp oven make sure it has the lip around the top edge of the lid, like the one in the pic above.
This allows you to pile the coals on top of the oven and get an even cooking temp inside, it also allows you to lift the lid to see inside with minimal coals or ash falling in.

If you are interested in camp ovens and using them this site is very comprehensive. I know this bloke from 30 odd years ago and he is a decent cove - another refugee from GB. I worked with him in the mid 70's.
Derek has been developing this site for a long time and is generous with his knowledge.

Definitely South Australian, I was well into my 20s before I even laid eyes on an electricity pole that wasn't a Stobie pole. They make a lot of sense, at least a 50 year life span I think. And the South Oz termites just can't chew them.
Can't claim they are real pretty, though.

I didn't think that there was enough wood in SA to support a termite population?
Don't you folk burn malley roots and make your house fencing from flat steel panels and supposed fire resistant brush panelling.
