Welcome to the Dutch Oven Dugout!
You’ll find this a great place to find, learn, and share Dutch oven ideas and recipes. This site is full of fantastic information for everyone from the complete beginner to the seasoned pros (pun fully intended).
Why Dutch Ovens?
Although we discuss much more than just Dutch oven cooking, this site spends a great deal of time and attention on the Dutch oven. If you are experienced with this camper’s cooking companion you can appreciate our enthusiasm. Even if you’ve spent a great deal of time using a Dutch oven there are still many cooking methods and recipes to explore and to share with others. If you’re new to cooking with a Dutch Oven, once you’ve tried it we’re sure you’ll be hooked. There’s something about being outside with a campfire, and sharing with friends and family an age old tradition and the flavor comes from cooking in one of these marvelous tools. It’s also very economical and practical, but that’s just a bonus.
We spend some time on this discussing other equipment for preparing, cooking and serving food in a camping environment. There are some really great tips and tricks out there and not all of them are in regards to Dutch oven cooking. Overall, we want to encourage you to get out and cook, so if you’re a burner and a griddle type, then by all means fire up your stovetop and share with us your successes and failures. If you like to grill outdoors, we’ll give you some pointers and compare notes. No matter how you cook, it’s always better when you cook with friends.
Join us with our friends in the Dugout and you’re sure to have fun.
