This one is a perfect recipe to bake up a hot fresh loaf of bread using heat beads in the heat bead basket.

  • 500g plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon dried bakers yeast or 1 sachet if using sachets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 375mls lukewarm water


  1. Place flour, yeast and salt in a bowl and mix.
  2. Make a well in the centre and add the lukewarm water.
  3. If water is too hot it will kill the yeast..too cool the yeast won't activate properly.
  4. Stir with a spoon until combined then turn dough out onto a floured board and knead for 10 minutes.
  5. Shape into a ball and place into a bowl with a damp tea towel covering the bowl.
  6. Place the bowl in a warm spot to prove for an hour or so or until it has doubled in size.
  7. Once proved punch the dough in the centre to knock it down and release the gas produced.
  8. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead for a few more minutes until smooth and back to original size.
  9. Place dough into your loaf pan or in a cob shape onto a trivet and place into camp oven. Let stand in a warm spot for another 30 mins.
  10. If you wish you may brush bread with a little water and sprinkle poppy or sesame seeds on surface. Remove some beads from the basket and place on the camp oven lid then place the camp oven over the heat bead basket for 30-40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

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

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

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.
