    All you Cadac cookerers....

    How do you cook bacon on a Cadac .... ?

    I know most especially Jim and Brisey and others when marshalling cook a pile...

    Do you use the Scottle or the ribbed/Flat thingy.. ?

    Weekend after next we have a bikers camping weekend at my place and have to cook 30 - 40 breakfasts, and want to do most out side...

    Got a few various size Bar-B-Q`s but want the easy option..:RollEyes:

    Thanks

    griddle plate (flat/ribbed thing to you Mo) would be the better choice for bacon and sausages.

    Scottle dish for eggs, fried bread etc.

    CADAC makes a good pizza oven too. :thumb:

    Hi Mo, when cooking the Funsters bacon rolls, Jim uses two Cadac Paella pans. We cook in one and then transfer to the other to keep the bacon hot before serving.

    Cheers John..... :thumb:

    Just that I thought when at a Funsters rally I saw them using the
    [HI][/HI] Scottle, Skottle, [HI][/HI]Stottle dish thing... perhaps that was just to keep it hot...

    We use the flat side of the griddle for everything breakfast, only got one thing to wash up then. Mind you we are only usually cooking for two, but did managed to cook for 6 the other weekend.

    Cadac

    I use either the reverse (dished) side of the griddle, or the paella pan, depending on how many are being served. The skottal, like the BBQ grill, stays at home in the shed. Nothing beats a BBQ breakfast on a campsite.........except pouring rain!

    Best thing is the Paella pan :thumb: We did 420 rashers at Malvern last year.
    Because bacon these days contains a lot of water you'll need to 'mop-up' with kitchen towel as you go.
    Even better is to use 2 Cadacs :BigGrin: 3/4 cook the rashers on one,and then crisp up on the other one.

    Mike.

    Snap!! We only take the Paella pan with us now-use it for everything.
    So easy to clean as well.

    Paella pan all the way. It's the only one we take now. We use it for everything. So much easier to keep clean too. :thumb:

    Runrig has a brilliant solution, big flat hot surface but covers it with a non-stick fibreglass like heatproof fabric. Works a treat and so easy to clean.
