Dutch Oven Workshop

Lori & I have volunteered to put on another Dutch Oven Workshop this year.

Last summer we went to the National Chuck Wagon Cook Off in Ruidoso, New Mexico sponsored by the Hubbard Museum & the Smithsonian Institute.

We had so much fun and the food was great. We have many new ideas. Would you like to help us put it on?

Oooooooooooo!

It's going to be a great workshop! So buy a Dutch Oven if you don't have one, get on the workshop list and get another fun hobbie (obsession!) going.

Maybe we can get Michael and Lori to quickly put up the kind/brand of DO to purchase. There's a lot of junk out there and no one wants to waste $$

Dutch Ovens are made from several materials: Cast Iron, Aluminum, & Enamel over Iron. Also, Dutch Ovens are “Kitchen Style” & “Camp Style”. Lastly there are different levels of quality. We would recommend, if you decide to buy a Dutch Oven, get an American Made one. They are far better quality. (cheap cast iron cracks and sometimes has Hot Spots)

There are many sizes of Dutch Ovens, so what size should you get? What Style should you get?

It really depends on what you want to cook, how many you want to feed, and what options you want to make available.

We recommend the 12DO3 Kitchen plus the 10" camp lid for the best all around Dutch Oven for two people. You can use the flat bottom DO in your oven at home & you can switch lids and place legs under for camp cooking. (all I could find is a 12" lid photo, but you would get a10" lid.)

For four people it seems the 12" camp DO works best. I recommend getting the 12" deep because you can then bake breads as well as all other dishes.

My favorite brand of Dutch Oven is Lodge Dutch Ovens. They really make quality Ovens.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask questions.

It’s on my list. All I got to do is get my wife to retire. She loves to work (and it gives me medical insurance )

Some day we will be there.

...back to your scheduled programming.

Hi Mike,

Please include Jim and I in your Dutch Oven cuisine class.
BTW, we purchased a fairly cheap-o aluminum model that seems to do OK... our other was soooo heavy. The problem is that since it doesn't have legs we had a friend make a little traingular stand for it so it can have coals all around. I'm glad I didn't have to pay for this little stand... otherwise it would have exceeded the cost for the Lodge cast iron oven.
Thank you.

We used Aluminum for years when we use to do a lot of river canoeing. They do work well. They are not quite as forgiving as cast iron though.
