Red face Airstream - Dutch Oven Rally

I'm putting together an Airstream/Dutch Oven Rally for October 2nd and 3rd, 2009 at Ripplin' Water Campground in Sevierville, TN. There are 5 spots reserved on the river, with more available if needed. Haven't set any schedules up for pot luck, etc., but will provide more information as we receive feedback. This will be a good opportunity for a nice Fall get together to share Dutch Oven recipes and tips. I have reserved my spot at the campground already (site 4); sites 5 through 8 are the others that are currently reserved for this Rally. Call the campground directly to make your reservation. For information on the campground, go to Ripplin' Waters Campground & Cabin Rentals, Sevierville, Tennessee. Their phone number (for reservations) is 865-453-4169 or 1-888-747-7546.
Meet and Greet and "cocktail hour" Friday night at 7.

dutch oven rally

We will check the work calendar for these dates and reserve our spot first of next week if all is clear. It all sounds good! Have only cooked in the "dutch" once, so we are hoping to learn alot that weekend. Nothing is more beautiful than the "Smokies" in October!!! Looking forward to the rally.

Wish we were closer...here's our enchilada dutch over dinner last weekend, up in Calif's Sierra Nevada Mts...couldn't have been easier...

We pre-cooked at home some chicken breast meat, shredded with chopped onions and taco seasoning...and some ground beef the same way - put into plastic bags in the refrigerator...

Wraped some of the above filling in corn tortillas with shredded cheese, and made two layers - 10 enchilada's each layer -

Poured enchilada sauce over each tortilla layer, added more cheese on top and cooked in the Dutch Over for about 30 mins...YUMMY!

Thanks for the response. I'm not a expert Dutch Oven cook by I can eat what I cook. So that can't be to bad. The enchilada's look great. I'll have to try this recipe soon.

If you are coming to the rally let me know what you are cooking so we don't cook the same thing. There is a Kroger store close by so can get the ingredients for you dish.

Sounds like we will have a good time.

Wish we could join in, but we already have a trip being planned for Sept.

We just recently got introduced to dutch ovens - but for bread making.

A friend shared this video with me and then sent me a couple of recipes.

No-Knead Bread - Video Library - The New York Times

Seems that baking bread in a DO has been a bit of a fad since a profesiional baker in NYC came up with this technique a few years ago.

Well, we tried it, and it produces the best bread I have ever eaten - bar none! Great crust and chewy inside! Makes wonderful toast too!

Matter of fact I am just havng some with my breafast with home made marmalade!


Cheers ......... Brian

Hey - this looks fun! Would you like a rally ad for this event? I would be happy to make you one and it would display on the left side of the portal page (it's free).

My first Dutch oven experience years ago ended with a fire extinguisher - who new that that cherry pie filling was combustible??

Sorry about the cherry pie. My first experience was cooking 2 garnish hens. After about 4 hours we took it to the house and cooked it in the oven. Since then I have only messed up one dish. Pineapple upside down cake. I put to much liquid in the cake mix. After an hour all I had was a little thicker cake mix. I dumped that one in the trash can. Now I do a lot better.

I'm not real good with a computer and I have a hard time getting around on this forum. How do I get people to sign the list on the bottom of the calender? I would like to know who is coming and what they would like to cook. Also everyone can see who is coming and what they are cooking. If I knew how to send you a picture of one of our meals in a Dutch Oven I would like for you to make a rally ad. I'll check my photos and see if I can find a picture.

Thanks Janet

Jim

Jim,

We won't be able to make this one.

To add a photo click on the User CP button located on the blue bar (upper left corner of your screen). Click on the edit Avatar on the left side of the screen. There are several standard Avatars, or you can upload a picture of your MoHo if you have one.

Regards,

Kevin

Cooking in dutch ovens is the best! I own three, with all sorts of recipes. Will have to see if I can work the trip though, already was out two weeks in the Airstream on the Florida coast.

Don't let him fool you! His expertise is more than he give's himself credit for. That's Jim making a killer Dutch Oven breakfast. I was fortunate to camp next to Jim at this year's Springstream and he taught me a thing or two about DO cooking.

Man, I wish I could go to this rally. I've got an unyielding schedule that weekend. I see he has put the rally on the calendar here at http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...lly-53954.html. Y'all go sign up.

Am I mistaken Sugerfoot, or was it you with the LPG burner dutch oven rig at the Saturday morning pot luck breakfast? I seem to recall some mighty fine eats coming out of that lovely hunk of cast iron.

Sally and I were on Jim's street side at Springstream. His DO work was pretty good, but his homemade vino was primo.

We'll miss you guys at Falluminum.

Kevin

Jim - I made an ad for you and you should see it on the left side of the portal page. If you find an image you like - I can change the graphic for you.

To load an image into a post:

  • Click reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
  • Click "go advanced" add text to message window and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 1600 x 1600 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 3 Meg. Forums software will automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
  • Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
  • Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.

This was a pic from south africa a few years ago - different continent - same idea. This pot had a layered potato and meat thing in it that was fab.

Hey Jim- Great to see someone else doing a Dutch Oven Rally. I hosted one two years ago and we actually held a cook-off. There were three catagories; Starter or soup, entree and dessert. We had 23 entries and it was very difficult to pick winners. I will be bringing the rally back next year for Columbus Day weekend with more folks wanting to join in on the fun. At least 50% of the folks had never cooked in a Dutch Oven before and had a blast.

Thanks! Yes Kevin, that was me and my Volcano stove. I was using the propane burner for breakfast, but switched back to charcoal for the DO pot luck dish. Jim thought I was "cheating" with propane. I had to prove to him that I could DO cook the "real" way!

We'll miss you at the Falluminum too.

I first learned how to cook using dutch ovens while in the Boy Scouts. It's the only way my father would cook while camping out. Dutch ovens were a very important tool for the colonialists, pioneers and cowboys, just as important as their rifles. It is intersting to note that of all that pioneers threw off their wagons to lighten the load, they never got rid of their iron.
