We're ready to cook.

The Rum Cake with cream cheese rum icing and fruit.

The take home prizes

We got 1st in showmanship, 1st in main dish, 2nd in bread and 2nd in dessert. Oh $200.00 prize money.:woohoo:

:thumbs up: Congrats on the great looking food and great finish. I know where to look when looking for pointers on CI cooking now. Looking forward to meeting you and the Mrs. at the get together this June. Should be some great food and friendships made and am really looking forward to picking up some pointers on CI cooking from someone who takes it seriously. Myself, I feel I just know enough to make some great camp food, but not enough to compete.:wings:

Question Buzz; in your first picture there appears to be what looks like tubes or rings. Are those by chance wind breaks for around the DO's while cooking? If so I imagine that makes cook temps and times more predictable and where did you get them?

I like your Camp cookin Steve!!!!:roflmaoha0::drooling:

Great job buzz, I want to know more info on that wood shelve/drawer unit that keeps all your items organized??? You build it? Does it fold together for traveling? That thing is awesome!

What brand ovens do you guys use??

Thanks guys.

Chargrilled; yes it folds together for traveling, locks up good and tight. No a friend built it for us. We use mostly Lodge do have a couple of camp chief that were given to me as gift and prizes.

Smokin Bill; the tubes you see is nothing more than flashing from Lowe's, held together by paper clips, They work great for keeping the wind from pulling all your heat away from your ovens.

Siesta Man; I have CI loaf pans and a muffin pan also CI, that we put in a large dutch oven and cook with briquettes. The muffin pan goes in a 14 dutch and the loaf pans go in a 16 dutch.

I'll try to get some better pics of the chuck box for y'all tomorrow if I get off work early enough.

That's funny, as I was waiting for the window to open up with your reply I started thinking I could just use some aluminum coil to make them. Great Idea, thanks.

Thanks for the info Buzz, that chuck box is a great idea. The only breads that I have baked in my ci is pull apart type similar to monkey bread and have to use parchment paper liner to keep the bread from sticking. E.T.

That's a really cool box, Buzz. Reminds me of the partol box in Boy Scouts....
