Reflector ovens  were used by the woodsmen and riverdrivers in the Maine's forest, starting back in the early 19th century. Many meals were prepared in their outdoors, and the only way they could prepare baked goods was with the reflector oven. No better method has been invented to be used in front of a campfire, and the results, with the proper procedure, are always excellent.
