  • 3 eggs - beaten
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup SR flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 2 to 3 apples - cored with skin removed and sliced


  1. Place a trivet in to your camp oven and heat the oven over the Ozpig for 8-to minutes.
  2. Make sure you use the diffuser underneath to create a lower heat for a slow oven.
  3. Have 6 to 8 heat beads ready for later.
  4. Cream butter and sugar
  5. Add whisked eggs and beat with a hand beater for a short while (do not over beat).
  6. Add vanilla essence and a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg
  7. Add combined flour and mix into the mixture in 3 to 4 batches
  8. When combined, pour the batter into lined cake tin and start to add the sliced apple around the outside - working your way to the centre.
  9. Do not add apple to the immediate centre of the batter.
  10. Add as many slices into the batter as you like
  11. the more apple, the tastier the cake!
  12. Place the cake tin in the camp oven.
  13. Cook for 8 minutes, then move the camp oven on to the side plate and place 8 heat beads to the top of the lid.
  14. Cook on low for a minimum of 1 hour.

Great bit of kit

We have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars

Series 2 - a genuine belter!

Series 2 - a genuine belter! Loving my series 2! During my "burning in" tests it really does belt out some heat, one of the primary reasons for the purchase. Guaging heat, I've cooked a couple of hamburgers and some stove top coffee all with great success. My only suggestion is when you've finally decided to treat yourself to a piggy, super treat yourself and get as many of the accessories as you want at the same time. You'll want to use em and I guarantee you'll go back and buy them anyway. No sell, thats a fact, so go the full hog! (thats a pun) Great service, fast post and I'm genuinely looking forward to the colder weather kicking in.

Exactly what I was looking for

- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.

Big pig - loving it

We love our big pig . It’s so beautiful to sit around having the large opening and we are loving the smoker having started making beef jerky . We had a baby pig but this one is hands down the best
