Dutch oven

Just Google "Dutch Oven Cooking" and you will get endless sites and ideas.
Yes get the "camp oven" it has the legs. Wifey gave me a "Cast-Iron Cooking for Dummies" book. It has lots of tips on the care and use of all types of cast iron cook wear. I started a notebook just by scanning the net for good recipe's and printing them off.
Once you get started, you wont just own a "dutch oven". You'll want to scout the yard sales, flea markets, auctions, ect for all sorts of cast iron cook ware.
One of my favorite deserts is fresh apples off of the neighbors apple tree turned into a apple crisp!
Get your feet wet and start cooking!

I just clean it with hot water.I never use soap or abrasive cleaners.When im done cleaning i apply a thin coat of Veg oil in it and store in a cool dry place.I have never tasted anything that i cooked before.I have read that some oils can leave a rancid taste but have never had it happen.

I've heard that you shouldn't make a tomato based dish in a seasoned dutch oven, as the acid from the tomato will eat away at the seasoning, and you should do these in a separate pot. As for all other dishes, I've done everything from meats, stews, breakfasts(our favorite) to desserts. Black Forest cake is a favorite and quite easy.

Funny you should mention that. See the peach cobbler thread for a couple of recipes.

Don't forget that you'll need plenty of good dry wood. I split mine real small so I can keep feeding it under my pot when I need it. You can control your temp. better with the small stuff. I also use a tripod. I like it because I can raise it, or lower it as needed. Agian to control the temp.

Kingsford match light charcoal, I find they fit very well on the lid for top to bottom heating.

IMO- if your oven is seasoned properly and Pam is used there really isn't a need to use inserts. Maybe there are a few foods that may require them but I haven't run across any. And I definitely prefer Kingsford reg. blue bag used with a chimney, never a problem. Still learning mine and having a blast doing it.
