OT-cooking in a wood fired stove and the Egg

I've been in the habit of emailing friends and family with pictures of my cooking escapades. They think I'm nuts......Eggheads are nuts...and we're fine with it is what I tellem.[p]Got this as a reply to my lasagna email. I talked about MadMax and his Giadia recipes he's cooked and how the Egg gives them that "old world" taste that is missing in the modern kitchen. Cooking the Adobo chicken, pizzas, and now the lasagna I can say 100% that he has hit the nail on the head with that one.[p]Below is the reply I got from a cousin, sounds like the Egg is easier to cook on than a real wood fired stove.[p]
I bet the lasagne was terrific on the Egg. I know when we stayed in Canada we had a wood oven to cook on in the cabin; food was wonderful. We made homemade potato chips and baked biscuits etc. Took some getting used to but after a couple "burns" we learned. It was a different experience but a great one. It made the best pot of coffee in the world just perking away on the top. The only inconvenience was waiting till the fire got going and waiting for the oven to get to a temperature that was cookable!! We are all so used to instant gratification it seemed like forever waiting to get a meal shoved in etc. Course everyone wanted to get out to the lake fishing and there's just no rushing a wood oven! We finally hit on the idea to share cooking so everyone had a chance to get out in the boat early morning and then be back by 10 for breakfast and it would all be done! Worked out but it took a couple days to get it all put together but after 2 weeks we all got pretty darned good at the timing and all the other jazz that went along with it; like boiling water for doing dishes and baths and not forgetting to light a lantern to take down the path to the out house!! Truly rustic, nobody around for miles and one general store down a rutty road which also was the post office, a phone, bait shop -- you name it! Primitive camping at it's best!

Sounds like you are really enjoying your Egg; that's great.
