We recently purchased an ozpig which we have named Steve. We first spotted the ozpig at the caravan and camping show and liked it from the start but we weren’t convinced on making the purchase. I had read up on them previously and only heard good things but Stew wasn’t so sure. Anyhow on the day we decided it wasn’t a needed purchase and left empty handed.
A few weeks later Stew found a good Fathers day deal on the ozpig at tent world it was just in time for my birthday so we couldn’t resist.
I have to say we love it, Steve has been a welcome addition to our family, giving off warmth without to much smoke and giving us more options for camp cooking, in particular of the grid camping.
We have had a few practise runs at home, and have built up our accessories along the way, it can become an expensive habit with each add on.
On our recent trip to Wallaroo we gave making a cake a go and have to say it was a success, the next night we tried a self saucing chocolate pudding again with good results. A few family favourites that we have been making at home as well as away have been a butter chicken and apricot chicken from the ozpig website and the addition of the rotisserie kit. The staple damper has been tried and tested with success also.
So the ozpig gets a big thumbs up for us, it folds down small enough to fit into the carry bag with the legs and chimney packing up inside the belly. I have to add it does weigh a bit and the cast iron camp oven we brought to use with it is weighty also but we think its worth it for the use we get out it.
