I'm going to give this method a try this coming weekend in the back yard. Going to cook something "greasy" to give the pot some good seasoning-in. I like no-stick cooking and wash with water only cleaning.

Maybe start off with 4 pounds of bacon. And then come back and do the souffle/omelet that was shown in one of the videos. :hungry: :DBfire:

Once "seasoned" the Dutch Oven should be handled like any other "ironware".

I have done Dutch Oven cooking: the number of coals top and bottom is critical to success.

There are some Dutch Oven cookbooks that number the coals for the top and for the bottom, right there in the recipe.

I like the Banks Fry-Bake "Dutch Oven" for kayak camping.

The large one is the Expedition model.

The smaller one is the Alpine model. Backpack that. :D

My wife bought a new size oven yesterday at harbor freight for 30.00 (12" 6 quart)and got me thinking food so here is what I came across that looked inviting:

I hade to redo a bail for the oven because it's made in china and didn't quite work well enough :mrgreen: I went to menards and got some 3/16 stainless steel wire rope and fasteners and made a bail with it. I'll post some photos of it later or tomorrow.

Thank you!!! I sent that link to my wife via email. She's really psyched up on cooking Dutch oven.

Gee!!!! the ovens sure are heavy :D

Wood be nice to have a pot belly stove with eye on top to fit a dutch oven. Have it so it's 1" below surface of stove top.
