Camp Oven Chicken Wings

I thought I would start the camp cooking section with one of the yummiest recipes we love to cook in the camp oven - Chicken Wings.  Just delicious.  These were made in our beautiful furphy camp oven.

Camp Oven Chicken Wings

- 1 kg of Chicken Wings
- 1 cup of beer
- 1/2 cup of tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup of BBQ Sauce
- 1 teaspoon of Tabasco sauce

- Combine all ingredients in a bowl or large snap lock bag.  Place in the fridge to marinate for as long as you have.  An hour minimum, but it can be up to a couple of days.  Quite often I marinade my chicken before leaving home and store them in the Engel ready to cook up.

- Preheat the camp oven by placing it over the fire to heat up.
- While the oven is heating, prepare a place for the camp oven to sit, to cook the wings.  Place a small shovel of coals on the bottom for the camp oven to sit on.  We do not want the oven to hot, as the marinade contains sugar and can burn.
- Once the oven in preheated, add the chicken wings to the bottom of the oven.  I don't pour in the extra marinade as it can burn.
- Place the lid back on the oven and place 1/2 a shovel of coals on top.
- Let cook for 10-15 minutes.
- Remove lid, turn wings over and baste with extra marinade (not to much though)
- Place oven back on the coals, adding an extra 1/2 a shovel to the bottom if needed (if hard wood you shouldn't need to many more).  Add another 1/2 shovel of fresh coals to the top of the oven.
- Let cook for further 10 minutes.

Carefully remove the wings from the camp oven and enjoy.  These wings are great for lunch or a snack, or an easy dinner.  On the day we served ours with some freshly baked bread that we baked before hand (see next post), with lots of butter.
