We recently cooked up a roast chicken in the Petromax Atago, and to say that it went down a treat after a days fishing, is an understatement. The cleverly designed Petromax ATAGO can be used in combination with a Petromax Dutch Oven or a Griddle and Firebowl.

All you have to do is place the cast iron pot/Dutch Oven into the Atago when the fuel source is hot enough to use. Or if you do not want to use the Dutch oven’s lid as a pan to cook your food. Another option includes just adding the grilling grate over the Fire Bowl and turn your Atago into a barbecue, your cooking options are endless using the Atago.

We cooked the roast chicken in the Dutch Oven in approximately 90 minutes. Simply add your chicken to the Dutch Oven raise it up slightly to avoid it getting burnt at the base of the Dutch Oven, wrap up your favorite vegetables in tin foil and also place in the Dutch Oven. After an hour or so depending on the heat, you should take the lid off the Dutch Oven and continue to cook for an additional 30 minutes, this helps the skin of the chicken to get nice and golden and giving you tasty crispy skin. Make sure you prod your chicken to ensure it is fully cooked before eating. Enjoy..
