There are Books on it. Some of The Lodge Brands come with the "basics" for cooking.
Once you get the hang of it you can get creative. I have a couple of 10" One for meats and one for desserts. You can also download an app for your phone with cook times, heat values and the number of brickets to use.
The manual tells you "How to clean"
Pineapple upside down cake is good I do a Blueberry / Peach cobbler.
You Basically can cook anything that is done in the oven. Just have to pay attention to your heat.

Ok...so I'm a huge fan of cast iron but haven't yet tried Dutch oven cooking. This picture is shocking to me because I had assumed that it would require a LOT more coals --like a fire pit for the bottom and a shovel full on top.

Is what you show here an honest-to-goodness cooking session?

IDOS - International Dutch Oven Society (International Dutch Oven Society) www.lsdos.com (Lone Star Dutch Oven Society) on the Lone Star web site, click on information then the cooking information link. Explains the Dinwiddie method for temperature control (how many briquets to use). Ovens with legs are called camp ovens.

Rule of thumb...use 3 times the coals on top as what you use on the bottom. Take into consideration there is a space between the lid of the oven and the food in the oven. The food is sitting directly on the bottom of the inside of the oven.

This doesn't hold true for all foods - but works in most cases...

I'm no DO chef, but I've rarely put more than 4 - 6 briquettes under the oven for anything I've ever cooked. They are highly efficient.

The table does take down. The legs are held into place by a thumb screw on each leg.
I purchased mine at Cabala's. I just check their Web Site and it showed them sold out.

Here are some other places where you might find them:

Table

My brother made one for me.........don't have a picture of it at the moment. But it has long legs so you can work at the right height!
It's a little longer too.
