Boat Ovens

Has anyone figured out how to make an oven out a Magma grill? Or is there an oven that will sit atop an Origo stove?
Many small boats do not have ovens so lots of good food things are not practical. I looked at the Coleman collapsible camper's oven, but it lacks any insulation and would heat up the cabin like crazy. So I keep eyeing the grill....what would you have to do to make an oven out of it?

When you type oven? For what use do you mean? Making breads & such? For meats I put coals on one side, and wrap the meat in foil for slow cooking........i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

There are camp type ovens as you mentioned. There are also heat reflectors used by campers to bake. Some cruisers use cast iron to bake on the stovetop. Recently there was a review (in Soundings, I think) of an oven for the stovetop that claimed even heat and efficiency, but I thought it expensive. I don't remember the name.

You don't know how right you are. That's one of the reasons I'm looking at the grill.
I2F: for bread, pot pies, pizza, most anything that says bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

the Coleman camp stove oven will work on any heat source. wheres your portable beach camp stove? use it on deck use magma as base for your stove works great for me. course mine is charcoal if yours is propane there is your heat source.

As an earlier poster said, a cast iron Dutch oven works really well (Lodge products are probably the best). If you get a deep one, and use a cast iron trivet inside, you can roast meats very nicely. Baking is a bit tricky, but it can be done. One big advantage is that Dutch ovens are very energy efficient; the cast iron absorbs, and then releases, a huge amount of energy (fairly evenly, too). I use one with a Origo alcohol stove to roast meats, make pan-breads, as well as make stews/soups, etc. I sometimes set up my little Origo HeatPal stove with the Dutch Oven (a 10" deep one fits just right) in the cockpit on a hot day, to avoid heating up the cabin.

One caveat -- the enameled Dutch Ovens are fine for stews and such (things with lots of water), or inside a regular oven, but getting the Dutch oven hot enough on a stove to roast meats or bake risks damaging the enamel. Seasoned cast iron is really best.

[SIZE="3"]Thanks for the reminder re Dutch ovens. I really look forward to some nice buttered rolls....next season!

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
