Jeff "Jeffro" Kylberg  do you happen to know which BoB had the recipes?  None of our local bookshops seem to carry them so I'll probably have to order it sight unseen.

Karl, look in the Book of Buckskinning. One of those editions has a good section on colonial cooking.

Karl, my favorite breakfast is Bubble and Squeek made with bacon grease. That's the way I use left over tatties and cabbage.

I have been asked to do a colonial cooking class for the local DAR ladies. We are planning to rent a covered pavilion on the beach with a raised fireplace inside and firepit just outside. The fireplace has maybe a 6' x 3' waist high work area. I have a pretty good collection of Dutch ovens, skillets, tripods, cross irons, tinned copperware, and cauldrons ranging from one can of stew to 10 year old child in size.
I was planning on using various colonial cook books and steal from my favorite JAS Townsend videos. Probably bake oat bread, meat and/or fruit pies, stew/soup, and some sort of sweets.

Any suggestions? Something that might appeal to younger DAR members? The emphasis is on 1st documentation 2nd authenticity and 3rd teaching cooking techniques.

Just a nice old Dutch oven picture.

I spent New Years Eve with some friends and friends of those friends.  The home where we spent the evening had a custom-built fire pit in the yard complete with some kind of a rig to suspend multiple Dutch ovens over the fire from any height.  I haven't yet learned to cook this way, but I hope to master it one day.  Your outing sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.

Went to a BCUSA outing in San Saba,Texas this weekend. Ate out of a dutch oven all weekend and other than a tea kettle that's all you could possibly need or want.

Russell. I plan to. I've done lots of outdoor cooking while working summers as a fishing guide while I was a student, and nothing beats it. Trying Dutch Ovens should be interesting and rewarding..

Pete, welcome anyway. Stick around, maybe you'll learn to like the real Dutch Oven. :-)

Ooops. I'm in the wrong place. I thought a Dutch Oven was when you fart and pull the sheets over your bedmates head.
