    I do a bit of baking in the Traeger at home and was wondering if anyone uses their Grill Box to do any baking on the road? It's not very tall, but it seems as though you can get the temp down to a reasonable setting for cupcakes or maybe some focaccia or corn bread etc...
    Anyone with experience on this or am I going to be the trailblazer?
    TIA,
    Rich

    I know this an old thread but wanted to see if you ever tried your grill bow as an oven ? And if you did how it turned out

    I know it makes some pretty good biscuits....The wind can affect the temps but I like the set up. Folds VERY flat. Forgot I needed a baking pan the first time I used it. Turns out a regular ceramic plate does the job. (But watch out, it is extremely hot when you take it out). Keeps em warm for a while though.

    We had the coleman and then the Camp Chef oven. Current camper has an oven.

    The coleman oven was very hard to keep the temp in colder weather. Camp chef had double wall oven and muck better. But both did well for coffee cake. Both you had to monitor the temps

    We love our Coleman camp oven. We use it quite often. You just don't trust the temp gauge,found this out first time using it. Seems to read colder than it actually is. Makes great biscuts!

    We use the Coleman oven and really like it. It's small,but works well for us. I do have the Campchef grill box,but have never tried it for baking.

    I just use a good old box oven - thick cardboard box wrapped in foil and heat with charcoal. I have always had my eye on the actual ovens though!

    Another vote for the Coleman camp oven. I've that one for over 20 years and works great. Like everyone else, I ignore the temperature gauge.

    I have a Coleman camp oven and I love it. Easy to use and we make cornbread, cinnamon rolls, etc in there. I think it's worth it. My parents had one while I growing up too.
