    I felt like using my dutch oven so I built a fire on my dutch oven table and got some nice coals. Made some biscuits and put them in the butter coated cast iron oven. In about 17 minutes they were about as perfect a buttermilk biscuit as you could want. We had these with sausage that I...

    Hey ladies I'm in the process of planning what kitchen stuff to store (that one day I may not be able to replace) and have changed my mind so many times now. So I guess I'm looking for suggestions. What kitchen appliances would you not want to do without in your post grid kitchen? I think...

    I have been a long time prepper, even before Y2K, and even as a kid. My focus has been on other aspects of prepping and survival that I wont go into here. Until recently, I had just planned to cook/food prep stuff on the run and the most basic way possible without thinking of long term...

    I've made references to this during my time here on the boards, and can't believe I have never posted a recipe. This has been a camp favorite with Scouts and Parents alike and whether or not I go up on a trip, folks continue to ask for the recipe. A generous hat tip to author Diane Mott...

    I went to a potluck/picnic yesterday and I did up a batch of Dutch Oven Enchiladas that I have been playing with for the last couple of years. The recipe for the enchiladas follows; You'll need a dutch oven that has a rimmed lid for placing charcoal on top and the three legs on the bottom. A...

    For what ever reason I have always planned my meal plans around the number of people and how many meals I can get for the lowest cost. I have somewhere around 25 different meals (not including breakfast) that I have large quantities of that don't include breaking into my canned meats. Here's...

    Hey all, Ive been looking into picking up a dutch oven for cooking. I was wondering how many of you have made this a part of your bug out / bug in cookware? I know that they will last forever (properly cared for) but they add a lot of weight to a bag. Im also wondering how would you bake in...

    I just recently installed a wood stove in my house, which has been a goal for a while now. I have heard you can cook on these stoves, but mine is fairly small as it is one of the new efficiency stoves. Not a lot of room on top to put a pan to cook on. Then I had a thought, what about getting...

    The correct term would be camp oven cooking. The cast iron pot with the three legs and recessed lid. Does anyone here do any camp oven cooking? After joining this forum, I was thinking, I have a nice collection of Lodge Camp Oven cast iron cookware.....I have over the many years have cooked...

    Going to take advantage of the law enforcement sale at Cabelas buy purchasing a dutch oven and some accessories to go with it. My research so far leads me to believe a 12" dutch oven is the way to go as most recipes are for the 12". My research also leads me to believe that lodge logic is a...

    Dutch Oven Cooking I have an old dutch oven with no legs, so I was able to cook this on my gas stove top. But it can just as easily be done on a grill or in a firepit with any deep cast iron skillet w/ lid. It doesn’t require a lot of attention and only takes an hour to an hour and a half to...

    I have a couple of dutch ovens, a 10" and a 12", that I've been trying to learn to use the last few weeks. They are an important part of my cooking plans after TSHTF so I need to learn how to use them. I thought I would share a few websites that I have found especially useful. The first is an...

    Hello, this is Bret. On a recent camping trip, Teri broke out her dutch oven and cooked up a batch of Monkey Bread over the campfire. According to her boys, it was a huge hit, and is super easy to make and worthy of sharing. Note: I have the pics on my computer so I'm doing the uploading...

    I posted on another thread about dutch ovens, but I thought I should put something in this section. I made bread from a recipe off of youtube. Super simple and very good tasting bread if you don't burn the bottom.:D: I recommend trying this out, especially if you have children or are baking...
