A camp oven, frypan and saucepan in one, the Hillbilly BushRanger 7.5 litre Camp Oven is a tough and versatile camp cooking system.
A compact and tough camp oven for couples and small families, the BushRanger is made of spun steel which means it can take more knocks than its heavy cast iron counterparts.
Let’s set some expectations though, Hillbilly makes gear functional and unbreakable, but it’s not pretty. Made of heavy duty steel welded together and touched up with paint to keep the rust at bay, a good clean and a seasoning with fresh cooking oil will ensure your Hillbilly gear lasts you a lifetime.
This is the second 7.5l hillbilly camp oven I have bought so now
I can now do damper and a roast or use the second lid as a fry pan at the same time.
They sort of fit inside each other up to the handles. Just need a good wash and seasoning and you are ready to go.
They are heaps lighter than the cast iron versions and the lids make great fry pans (even on a stove top). You use less heat under them than you do with cast iron and don't take nearly as long to heat up.
This camp oven is the ducks nuts! It gets used on every trip and i wont go camping with out. I have made everything in this from blue berry banana bread all the way to roasts and soups. You can also just fry anything on the lid.
I can only say these camp ovens are simply superb. My mate (who already has one) seasoned mine over hot coals creating a magnificent finish to the cooking surface requiring minimal cleaning after use. I sit the camp oven on a trivet inside a cut down 25 gallon drum. Four heat beads under and 12 on top. Does the job, and tastes awesome no matter what you cook.
Could this be used on a Companion 2 burner stove or only over a fire?
You can certainly use the Hillbilly Bushranger 7.5L on a Companion 2 burner stove. They might take a little longer to heat up, and won't function as an 'oven' without coals on the top, but you can still use it as a large pot on the stove.
Hi, what’s the paint used? I assume it’s safe but curious to know please. And how this is the steel? And warranty (sorry if that info is included, I didn’t see it). Cheers
The Hillbilly Bushranger is made from Spun Blue Steel, has a one year warranty and doesn't have a layer of paint on it. I’ve just measured the one we have downstairs as Hillbilly don’t provide the thickness on their website, at it looked to be 2mm thick to me.
It does have oil on it from manufacture though, so you will need to clean and season it before use. I hope this helps Kate.
Would this be ok to use on the Ozpig? Looking for an lighter weight alternative to the boar which is sold in the ozpig range?
The Hillbilly 7.5L Bushranger does fit on the Ozpig, although the lid will just touch the chimney so it sits slightly toward the front. Cooking in it on an Ozpig should be fine, it's made from similar materials to the Big Boar.
I have just double checked this, and the manufacturer's website says that the Bushranger is made in Australia.
many thanks - I need to be able to fit a whole chook in
I've just popped downstairs and measured the Hillbilly Bushranger 7.5L oven, and the diameter of the base is 24cm so you could probably squeeze a small chook in there - in fact if you're planning on doing that we'd recommend a trivet to stand it on while it cooks.
