Do You Dutch Oven?

I’m talking about Dutch Oven cooking here folks!! Not the other kind.

Although …  you know me, I can’t resist this guy!  LoL

I think the only thing worse than farting in bed would be farting in a hot steamy shower with your love. Just sayin’ …

Okay, seriously. I had a friend back in Connecticut (Hi Yancie!!) who used to cook in a Dutch Oven quite a bit. She had a couple different sizes of cast iron pieces and made the best meals in them! Sometimes she used them outside in the fire pit, but she also had a hook in her indoor fireplace where she could hang one. I always loved the way her house smelled when she was cooking something in the dutch oven.

The smell of the wood burning, the savory aromas coming from a venison stew in the pot, a bottle of Cabernet breathing on the counter. Ahhh … memories.

Anyway, I came across an article today from the folks at Camping Road Trip with some really tasty sounding recipes for cooking in a Dutch Oven in the great outdoors. I think it was the pic of what looks like pizza that caught my attention, but once I got reading everything was making me hungry. LoL

You can check out the recipes >>>HERE<<<

So here’s the thing. We don’t actually have a Dutch Oven yet. It’s been on our list for a while now. But in the Little H.O.W. it just seemed like something that would take up space and not really be worth sacrificing the little storage space we had. Now that were in the bigger rig, I want a Dutch Oven! LoL

We’ve looked at several over the years and just like everything else, there’s a pretty big price range. My question is – Do you have a favorite brand or size that you think works best?

I like the colored enamel one seen below, but I don’t know if it would hold up to campfire cooking … and Mr. G. would probably get hotter than the coals if I spent $300 on one pot. LoL

So I’m thinking something like this one is the best bet. Love the handle and the little feet. 🙂

Any thoughts? Better suggestions? Good Dutch Oven recipes?

Let me know. 🙂
