Have been using Dutch Ovens other wise known as Camp Ovens for years, I only use Lodge brand. It truly changes everything about camp cooking. If you can cook it at home, you can cook it at camp in a dutch oven. We have done everything from bicuits to Prime Rib. I personally carry a 12" and a 14" reg. and also a 12" deep.
I keep them in dutch oven carry bags and store them in the camper under the dinning table seats. I dont know what I would do without them now.
My suggestion for recipes is to try everything, you will surprise yourself.
Good Cooking
Dave

I put a web site on #111 about a Dutch Oven cooking site. They can answer about any questions on Dutch Ovens. The have a recipe site also that has a lot of recipes. I use this site for most of my cooking. i don't do a lot but the recipes are there. They even have recipes for 6 inch Dutch ovens. It is well worth your time.

Are there any of you on this site already? Da Biscuit in the mane one [I think]. Here it is again. This site is also good for new people.

Thanks for the help---I had tried this process but couldn't make it work.

This was baked in a heavy duty cake pan, on a trivet. We have done oven-full monkey bread when camping with the grandbabies, lining the oven with foil. Frozen bread or roll dough, or refrigerated biscuits, work very well.

Lodge has a factory outlet store near Waynesville, NC, for anyone who might be interested. We haven't been there yet, but saw it last year and are going to peruse their offerings when we are back in that area in May. We also have an oven bag from Lodge, which is a neat and tidy way to carry the oven and accessories.

You might try using parchment paper versus foil, I have had a lot better luck with it. And most important the pot comes out CLEAN.

My son found this cornbread recipe on-line somewhere

Best Ever Cornbread

2 cups cornmeal
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups sugar

put above ingrediants into a gallon size ziplock bag, seal, and shake to mix.

add to the bag

1 cup melted butter
4 eggs beaten
3 cups milk

seal the bag after getting out as much of the air as possible.

massage until batter is smooth and free of lumps.

Line a 12" DO with parchment paper, spray the paper lightly with Pam
and pour in the batter. Cover and bake fo 45 minutes or until cornbread turns golden brown using 10 under and 16 on top.

Rotate pot every 10 to 12 minutes 1/4 turn clockwise and rotate lid 1/4 counterclockwise at the same time. This will even out any hot spots while baking.

Serve warm with honeybutter.

Enjoy

Ted

Parchment for Dutch Ovens

To my shock and surprise I found these in the camping section at Wal-Mart today. Looks easier then wrestling with the flat stuff on a roll but more expensive at $5 a box.

Wow-who knew! A little pricey, but probably would be worth it at times to have a seam-free item.

I have now made two loaves of kneaded, yeast-raised bread in our Dutch oven, quite fun and turned out very well. My more-or-less recipe is included below.

One Dutch-Oven Loaf

1 1/2 tbsp yeast, softened in 1/4 cup warm water
1 1/4 cup warm milk
1-2 tbsp white or brown sugar
1/2 cup or so cooked oatmeal, warm
2 cups whole wheat flour

Mix above ingredients with a whisk in medium sized bowl, whip well to start gluten development and lessen kneading time. Cover with wax paper and a towel, let sponge rise til double. Whisk down well and add:

1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil or melted butter/margarine
1-2 cups unbleached white flour

Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, kneading in the bowl as you go, to make a fairly firm but still elastic dough. Put a little vegetable oil in the bowl, roll dough in it to cover, cover bowl with wax paper and towel, let rise in warm place til double and finger-pokes leave indentations.

Punch down, pulling in outside to center to make a ball. Place in greased heavy-duty cake pan (or put directly in bottom of Dutch Oven), punch down to flatten slightly. Oil top and sides of dough, cover as above, let rise til double.

I bake in a heavy cake pan, on a trivet, in the Dutch Oven--12 coals in circle below, 18 in checkerboard pattern on top. Rotate as described so well in earlier post. Takes 30-40 minutes.

Here are some aluminum liners - a bit pricey but they work really well.

I like cooking up a meal in the Dutch oven while camping. People not familar with a Dutch oved are surprised by the outcome. Did a duck once it was great.

Will perhaps be able to find you next year. We have a lot planned already for 2009, have to work a potential rally stop into those things. I am really looking forward to seeing what you SERIOUS Dutch oveners are doing.
