Dutch Oven Cooking

The dutch oven is a versatile piece of cooking equipment that dates back to the early frontier days.This handy cooking device looks like a big deep frying pan with a lid.The good dutch ovens are made of cast iron and are very heavy.It’s great for cooking on an outdoor camping trip or in the backyard.I think there is nothing quite like a dutch oven dinner when camping and having fun with others.The food smells great and it’s easy to prepare and really good when it’s done.

Dutch oven outdoor cooking provides the opportunity to cook a wide variety of foods.Dutch ovens are extremely versatile, and can be used for just about every cooking need.Dutch ovens can be used to boil, steam, fry, and bake, among other things.They can be used to cook meats, soups, breads, and deserts.

You can cook anything in a dutch oven that you can cook at home in the oven or on the stove top.You really don’t need special recipes for a dutch oven but their are many good ones.You need to learn some basic procedures and how to control the heat.If done properly, you can place the food in a dutch oven and go fishing while your meal cooks.

Dutch oven outdoor cooking requires hot coals.These can come from a wood or charcoal fire.Charcoal is a bit more easier to use, since they burn and heat more evenly.I like the smoke from a real campfire like oak, or hickory.To me it adds more flavoring to the cooking.There is nothing like food cooked over a real smoking campfire.
