Campfire restrictions

Ok so we are going camping in northern AZ and they have instituted a stage one fire restrictions, which is no campfires or charcoal fires. Propane cooking is ok.
Well my question is we were going to fix biscuits and trying to figure out how to use the oven to bake without charcoal on top.
Any ideas?

Stop at KFC before you get to your campsite.
If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

Heavy cast Iron pot with a lid makes a good oven.

If not a regular pan/pot with a lid will do but you must becareful not to burn the biscuits on the bottom.

Or make them as steamed dumplings on a liquid/gravy. They are basically the same thing but either wet cooked or dry.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

Way bck in my Boy Scout days, we made a thick biscut dough snd corkscrew wrapped in on a stick.. We then roasted it both in a campfire, and by gently turning it over a Coleman Stove gas flame. You want a stick with just the right side branckes to help hold the dough in place. The biscuits came out prteey good that way. However, if the dough isn't just the right consistancy, it will fall off of the stick and into the fire. It makes for a great culinary adventure with kids. Make up a cup of Lipton's Chicken Noodle Soup to go with the bucuits.

Another way to make great biscutis, or even bread rolls, is to make up the dough and while it's rinsing, cook up a rich stew. Place round balls of dough on top, cover, and lrt steam for 20 to 30 minutes, Not browned, but yummy just the same.

With yeast dough, or even biscuit dough, you can spread the dough out in a well buttered cast iron pan, and cook ofer the fire, like you would if making English Muffins. When one side is browned, you simply flip as if making a very large pancake. They come out very tasty. And of course, you can also make cornbread this way. You just need to cook slowly, over low heat to avoid burnig the bottom side.
