|A wonderful experiment - well worth doing again!|
Some time back Nick picked up a 44-drum section from a roadside collection and later he found a tree that had been dumped in a nearby reserve.
When we spotted an abandoned frypan put out for collection, we collected that too - because one man's trash is definitely Hamby treasure! What did we do with all this good loot? We made fire!
The she-oak wasn't ideal firewood but we did have a lot of fun with it, just the same. The frypan made an excellent stand for our camp oven, holding plenty of coals without damaging the outdoor paved area or grass. We shared our camp oven roast with visiting family, who left some beer in our fridge when they departed the next day.
As the coals were still warm in the morning, it seemed a splendid opportunity to try something I had wanted to do for ages. I've watched Andrew Dwyer's YouTube clip many times but revised the method once more before putting his instructions into practice. I was well pleased with the result - and will definitely make this variety of damper again, even if I have to buy some beer specially for making it!
