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.

I have been trying to figure a way out to use dutch ovens in not so perfect weather. I saw a Volcano Cook stove, actually 2 different styles but same concept, at Sportsman Warehouse and was wondering if anyone had experfience with them. Any one give some feedback on them?
Here is the link for a description of the stove http://www.volcano2.com/

I used one because a friend gave it to me. It didn't distribute the heat evenly. I used to get burnt parts in some dishes I cooked. After some time I figured out it was where coals were bunched unevenly. If you make sure you place your coals evenly you shouldn't have too many problems. Other than that I never had much of a problem with it. Although I did get rid of it. I like my cast iron.

At the risk of being smothered with hot coals, has anyone used (or knowledge of) a cast aluminum dutch oven? I am considering one just for the weight factor but don't know how they perform. I see they have anodized and unanodized also.

Russel The foil casserole pans I bought worked great. These liners are supposed to be a better fit. Casserole pans required bending and folding to fit. Even when using the liners spray with cooking oil spray so food doesn't stick to pan, works wonders. Even heavy duty foil works good but it tears easy.

Camping is indeed incomplete without Dutch Oven cobbler. My dad always made cobbler when we camped. I carry that tradition on with my kids. It's not camping without cobbler. Oh, and hobo stew.

"What's it called? I'd like to look it up. The one I saw was, to the best of my knowledge, just one episode about DS from a series that discussed all sorts of agencies from around the world."

Date Night Ideas

Romance is manly. And every man should know how to plan a great night out for his woman. But, let's face it, sometimes ideas are few and far between. This group is for exchanging ideas about the venerable "Date Night" and other acts of romance.
