The big hit in our family (4 kids) is my beer Damper (self raising flour, sugar, salt and a can of beer).

Cut when it's hot, butter and golden syrup.

The kids are always bugging me for it when we go out bush.

rogan josh cooks up real nice in the camp oven, I generally like to slowcook it for 5 plus hours always making sure there is plenty of fluid in it and then 30 or so minutes before I want to eat I add some rice to soak up the fluid, the meat tends to break down after the 5 hour mark and it melts in your mouth.

Mine would have to be cream chicken and veg stew or potjie as they call it in South Africa (pronounced poi-key).
In SA it is a religious belief to cook in and on cast iron.
This recipe has grown so popular with my mates that I am forced to keep the 12qrt in the back of my ute. Even had to do make this for a friends housewarming in a steel drum filled with charcoal.

6-8 chicken thighs
250g diced bacon
500g corn kernels
500g sliced carrots
300g sliced mushrooms
4 medium onions, sliced
12 baby potatoes, skin on
10 button (pickling) onions
100ml water
15ml Worcester sauce
60ml fine apricot jam
250ml milk
250ml fresh cream
1 packet of white onion soup powder
1 packet of oxtail soup powder. (if you have difficulties finding this, the SA shop should have it)
Flavour enhancer (Aromat- available in South African shops)
Barbecue spice (any kind you like)
a little oil to start with

Sprinkle the chicken thighs with barbecue spice to taste.
Start the pot on a high heat with the little bit of oil. Fry the bacon for about 5 min. (no lid)
Next, throw in the sliced onions and apricot jam and fry for another 5 min. (no lid)
Place the chicken thighs in the pot, add the worcester sauce and water. Place the lid on the pot and leave for 15 min. Scrape some coals away to get a moderate heat. The water should have a slow boil. This heat should remain like this for the rest of the cooking process.
Next, add your baby potatoes and button onions and place the lid back on. Leave for another 10 min.
Time to add the rest of the veggies, corn, carrots and mushrooms and lightly season with the flavour enhancer. Place the lid back on and leave for 15 min.
While this is going, make up the sauce. Mix the 2 packets of different soup powders with the cream and milk. If you plan to use a blender DO NOT leave it for too long as you'll end up with a paste.
After the 15 min. pour in the sauce, put the lid back on and let it stew for 30 min.
ENJOY!!!

Let us know how you went and what you think of it.
Cheers

Last trip out west I done a good sized chook in the campoven, bit of salt and pepper to season and stuffed the under side of the skin with salsa dip and a few spoon fulls inside the chook. Added vegetables in after 30mins and came out an absolute treat... can't beat a good camp oven roast of any kind
