Bemco Backpacker Oven and the CDTA

 Jon over at the CDTA sent over his first field report on using the Bemco Backpacker Oven. They used it on the trail chef traning in New Mexico. This is the E-Mail he sent along with some photos.
Hi Brian,
Here is a story line and pictures you can use on your site, if you'd like:

The Continental Divide Trail Alliance had an opportunity to do a first round testing on the Bemco Backpacker Oven during our crew chef training in El Malpais National Monument, in NM. Our chefs in training were fascinated by the compact oven, the simplicity and beauty of the design. The oven was lighter than we expected, far lighter than ovens we have packed in the past. We used the 9" kit to make several rounds of buttermilk biscuits, each round coming out consistent, as good as if you cooked it at home. They were delicious, and we are all looking forward to testing more recipes, and baking on future volunteer

projects. Thank you Brian for being such a wonderful supporter of the CDTA, we'll be in touch with future reports!
