I am so excited to see this thread! I was in Goshen last year, and attended the class for cooking in a DO....things like pineapple upside down cake, peach cobblers....even a meat loaf! I was amazed how easy he cooked them on the ground, only sitting on a pile of hot coals, with hot coals on the lid! It was delicious!! I am learning a lot here, from everyone's experience and preferences in how to cook so that clean up is easy. In Goshen, he had a pie plate that fit inside the DO, and used some kind of tool that allowed him to clamp the pan to put it in and out of the DO so you don't burn yourself.....can't recall the name of that tool. Anyways, he pulled those cobblers and meat loaf out of the DO, and no mess at all! Now that's campsite cooking! I would love to learn to cook a stew in one!
