How to Make an Outback Oven

One of my favourite all time stories is baking chocolate muffins in the middle of a eight-day survival hike. On day three we had a two-day stop at a camping location where I built an outback oven out of rocks and mud.

After its construction I revealed to my friends that I had brought muffin mix and some simple paper muffin wrappers. The boys were more than happy to enjoy this special treat after three days of dehydrated food.

The rest is camp-craft history! Check out the video below for some guidleines on how to make an outback-oven. It can be a great utility if you are staying in one place for a while, or going to be returning to a specific location over-and-over again.
