Camping recipes: Borgy’s lamb shanks

Cook like a million-star chef with Borgy’s tantalising lamb shanks recipe.

There’s just nothing like cooking up a monster feed straight over the fire. Camp cooking strips everything back to its purest form, there’s no electric fan forced ovens and no exhaust fans to soak up the smoke, but I’m sure you’ll agree, it just tastes better!

You can’t beat the smell, or the tenderness of a succulent roast pulled straight from the camp oven, and don’t even get me started on that smokey taste you get with crispy bacon! Yep, I reckon cooking over the fire takes a perfect recipe to a whole new level, and when you nail it, it’s pretty easy to become absolutely addicted to camp cooking.

But it’s not all flowers and roses. In fact, camp cooking can be quite difficult until you get the hang of it. Maintaining that perfect cooking temperature is the biggest challenge; too hot and burn the b-Jesus out if it, too cold and it won’t bloody cook at all!
