Richard, do you place the coals right on the table top, or is this table used for food preparation?

The table top is 14' x 14" and around 6 inches high. It is for placing the coals on the bottom of the oven. It cost about $20, but you could build one easily.

They make much larger and more elaborate tables, but they are pricey and take up allot of room.

Oh... the 14x14 size would be great. I really don't want to get the big table - it's a matter of not lugging the extra weight.

Can you buy them anywhere?

I got mine at Sportsman's Warehouse which has a great selection of Dutch Oven stuff. Better then Cabela's or Bass Pro Shops in my opinion. You can always shop via the Internet if you don't have a good store nearby.

multi tasking tools !

going dutch

i've always used the dutch oven via a hole in the ground...

filled with wood coals and covered with more coals and dirt.

while the table looks fine,

IF u already carry a small 'dome' shaped' grill like the smokey joe...

or the one john has photo'd in post #7

it appears removing the main grill and dropping the dutch oven inside the smoker/grill works too!

fyi coming...

i know u are just getting started jim and the trailer isn't in hand yet...

but there is a tendency to buy and carry WAY too much stuff, when starting.

we've all been there, and over time i carry less and less, and only things that will serve multiple functions.

cheers

Yup - that's exactly why I'm asking if campground charcoal grills can be used with Dutch ovens - I don't want to carry more than I absolutely have to.

Since we live in the Rockies, I'm concerned about every hill around us!

Thanks for the reminder.

If anyone needs a dutch oven lid lifter (this thread reminded me I needed another) here's one at a pretty decent price.

I like to keep a pair of welders glove nearby to help handle the hot stuff. But then, they are used for the grill also.

Don't overlook using cast iron skillets for cooking breakfast etc... over an open fire. Mmmm good!

For those just getting into cast iron, don't make the mistake I made by cleaning cast iron with dish soap instead use plain water. Cast iron clean up is a breeze. Wait until the skillet or whatever is warm, but not hot and add some water. Clean off food residue with a rag. Clean a second time if necessary. Never use soap on cast iron. It's unnecessary and will spoil the seasoning. Add a final coat of grease and store in a clean, dry area.

Remember that old song, "keep my skillet good and greasy!"

If your going to buy cast iron - don't buy Chinese made stuff. You can tell it by the gritty - almost shiny inside. It won't take a good temper.
