Hi Folks,

I have been involved with Boy Scouts for 20 years and have used Dutch Ovens just as long.

A Dutch Oven is a cast iron pot that can be used to boil, bake, stew, fry, or roast food over an open fire. There are many styles of Dutch Ovens but the most popular and widely used ones are the Cowboy or Chuckwagon styles. This style is made of cast iron has 3 legs, a wire bail handle, and a lid with a rim. This is my favorite style and as I post recipes they will be meant to be cooked in it. A Dutch Oven can cost anywhere from $35.00 to over $100.00.

A word about seasoning. New Dutch Ovens require proper seasoning before use. when I get a new oven I scrub it with hot soapy water and towel dry it. Then heat it over an open fire until hot. remove it from the heat and coat with a good quality vegetable shortening. repeat the heating and oiling steps several times, now your oven is ready for use. After many uses and proper care the oven should become smooth and shinny black. When it reaches this stage you now have an excellent cooking utensil that should give endless years of service.

Dutch ovens cook some of the best tasting camp food you will ever eat. To cook with one requires some effort but the more you cook with one the easer it becomes. At times I have had as many as 6 ovens in the fire. I have developed a recipe for pizza that will rival your favorite pizza shop. I will post it and others soon. Good luck and enjoy many great camp meals form your Dutch Ovens.
