We don't use charcoal. We've always started a wood fire and distributed the embers around the outside and on the top. Just watch out on a breezy day - we've had our share of ashy meals.

1-10in. 2-12 in. and 1-14 in. plus a griddle, and several skillets. Love using my cast iron. If you can make it a regular oven you can make it a dutch oven.

We've done it for decades. We've found that an 8" dutch works well for us and we have two. Occasionally we move up to a 10". We also have it a deep 12" but use it for a group.

I'm not a fan of the method of coal distribution that the above, Byron's, advocates. It didn't work as well as the old tried and true for me.

My favorite recipe to make in a dutch oven - Dump Cake!!
-Pour a large can of fruit (e.g. peaches) - NOT PIE FILLING - into the bottom.
-Pour a bag of yellow cake mix on top.
-Cut a stick of cold butter into small piece and scatter on the cake mix.
-Top with a mixture of oatmeal, cinnamon & sugar.

Cook on fire. Top with ice cream and eat YUM YUM YUM!!!!!


Happy Travels!

I've done the same thing a couple of times, except I don't add the sugar and oatmeal... As they stated, just a large can (or 2 smaller ones) of the fruit in the can with the juice. Pour on cake mix and sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and place pats of butter. The juice from the fruit in the can is more than enough liquid, pluce the butter will melt and liquify as well.

I did a chicken and rice recipe last year that turned out great. Can't remember the exact recipe, but you basically mixed the rice with cream of mushroom soup and some other things, place the chicken on top and cook. It called for breasts and what not, but I used some chicken leg quarters. It was so good! Bought some chicken leg uarters on sale the other day, might have to do it again here at home!

I make a similar recipe as Suzanne and Brad and it does not call for any extra liquid. I actually use pie filling and it works out great. Especially tasty is
a can of crushed pineapple topped with a can of cherry pie filling then the cake mix. Apple pie filling with spice cake is good two. I use two cans of pie filling. Terry R.

Suzanne and Brad, for your Dump Cake do you add any liquid to the mix? It sounds similar to the coke cake recipe. Does the canned fruit have enough liquid?

I've got a good bed of Oak Coals going.
In a little while I'm putting on a 16qt.Dutch Oven full of White Bean Chile.

I love these mild Winter days ( 62° in North Alabama ).
