Dutch Oven Cooking
#1
Anyone here use a dutch oven at all?

I had one years ago that I used for camping trips when I was living out west. It either got "borrowed" and not returned or lost in one of my many moves that occurred in the 90's.

Since I still do not have an oven thanks to the storm (Sandy), I've been thinking of alternate cooking methods lately. At first I thought of a propane oven which I still may end up getting next year but than I remembered my days of scouting and later camping trips living out west and using dutch ovens and thought one would be a good addition to for any cookware outfit used for longterm power outages.

I just ordered this one:

Hopefully I will still be able to find some charcoal briquettes this weekend so I can try out a recipe or two. Charcoal is the easiest method of keeping these at temperature and will be good for practice, later I'll experiment with coals from a wood fire.

I plan on trying to bake some form of bread on the wood stove this winter using a dutch oven.

Probably just going to buy some frozen bread dough first to try and get the temperature part down. Then move to homemade dough.

I've been meaning to do that too, just haven't gotten to it yet. I have homemade dough rising right now, but today isn't the day for experimentation.

I make this bread in my dutch oven all the time. I think it's delicious, and it always comes out nice and crusty!

My Dad did many times throughout my childhood and the food was always fantastic. Sadly it is not a skill that he shared with me.

I just took three baked taters out of our dutch oven. Wrapped them in foil and had the oven sitting on top of the woodstove. They came out perfect.

I never realized a Dutch oven was just a cast iron pot until I clicked the link in the OP.

Never used one. Doubt I ever will. No idea where I would use it.
