I hope the XP Camper lines up better then Marc's shirt. (The roast picture).

Looks like a great spot.


Marc's attention to detail on his camper is amazing. His clothing - not so much! [emoticon]

BT and others,

The roast was very good, even having been dropped in the rosemary bush!

The window was already scratched from his adventures in AZ and Death Valley a couple months back. He was hung up on the branch pretty good, but stopped before hitting the window. I was pulling on the tree while pushing against his flat bed with my foot. He was able to turn the truck and camper to the left, swinging the back out and away from the branch. We tried hard to avoid taking out his window!

The branch mainly just scraped the paint off and left a slight impression. It's an easy repair, although I told Marc to leave it as a battle scar and testament to the durability of the shell!

Good eyes! I was wondering if anyone would notice the beer sitting there. I sure needed it after the drive in!

You know another thought that comes to mind is that usually chefs are very picky about their cooking gear. The fact that Marc seems to be happy cooking on the diesel stovetop is a good sign. Of course to me the only REAL way to cook while camping is in that dutch oven. [emoticon] We did chicken enchiladas last weekend in one of our dutch ovens - after smoking the chicken first in a charcoal smoker. The smoking added a lot of time over just grilling it, but man were they good.

Marc was telling me that there is a learning curve to using the stove. It's unusual, thats for sure. You basically only have one controllable burner. The smaller burner is getting residual heat from the main burner, so is always on a low setting. You also have to be sure the cooktop is cool (15 minutes or so) before lowering the top! Marc had thought of taking it out and putting a propane cooktop in it's place, but now is used to the Webasto and doesn't mind cooking on it.

Your smoked chicken enchiladas sound amazing! I'll be picking up my own dutch oven soon. What's a good one to get?
