I get that the Outback Oven has been out for many years, but it's bulky and weighty, compared to the "bakepacker" style of bread making. In all of my mountaineering trips, I have never seen anyone with an Outback Oven. Have you? They have always been regulated to canoe and kayak trips, where bulk & weight isn't as much a big deal.
What a great tent bound trick it would be, to come up with hot steamy bread... and on simple lightweight mountaineering gear.
Maybe someone could come up with an external heat exchanger for winter cooking pots and make it double as a "bake-packer" style insert to cook bread stuffs. OK folks, you heard it here, first, on Club Tread!
