We Burnt the Biscuits

Last night used the gas oven for the first time. DW put biscuits on tin foil on rack and soon we had a smell in the camper, then the smoke detectors went off.
Biscuits were burned on the bottom, so I ate the tops off them.
Any suggestions to get the burnt smell out of the camper? Its still lingering around.
And is there a secret to cooking with these ovens? Do you need a ceramic plate to reflect the heat?

I have a pizza stone in the bottom of mine, and others have used unglazed tiles from home improvement stores. Not sure on how to get the smell out.

Take a large shallow cooking sheet put it in the kitchen and pour unused coffee grounds in it, let it sit for a day or so.

Spray the cloth in the area with a good dose of Febreze.

Or more immediately.. if you want to kill the burnt odor. Boil a cup of rice uncovered, but make sure to keep good ventilation. For the oven itself.. if you just dampen a paper towel with baking soda and water then leave it overnight closed up in the oven it should help quite a bit.

Man alive. I think I'm going martha stewart. Please help!! lol

Pizza stone usage

Is the pizza stone placed on the lowest rack? Do you actually place your food items directly onto the stone OR place on a metal baking tray? If the latter, is the tray placed directly on the pizza stone or is there a separation by use of an upper rack? Just stating you use a pizza stone, does not provide any information into HOW it is used. Please fill in the missing information.

Also, several sizes of rectangular pizza stones are available. It would appear prudent to leave space between the stone edges and the interior of the oven, to allow heat to rise into the upper areas. Has anyone ever used a stone that fit tightly against the oven interior sides? Not allowing passage of heat? except through absorbtion by the stone?

Zeolite is great for absorbing and removing all kinds of odors. It is reusable, just set it out in the sun for 6 hours or follow the instructions to bake it.
