This is a great link for dutch oven recipes as well.
Everyday Dutch Oven

I don't use mine as much as I'd like but I have made some great cakes and some of the best chili dogs I have ever eaten came from my dutch oven. The chili dog recipe came from the above link. Here are some pics of the dutch oven chili dogs.

My Lodge 12" dutch oven on the back side of my smoker in the garage. I set it up in there if it's to windy or cold out.

6 chili dogs with all the fixings ready to go. Check the link for the complete recipe.

Now we're cooking!

All done!

And on the plate! You need a plate and fork for these bad boys! Best chili dog I've ever had!

When I get new Scouts working on a camping menu I always ask them what their favorite food is at home. I often get some version of " we can't cook that on a campout". then we put it on the menu and figure out how we can cook it. On our October trip a new Scout told me he loved 3-cheese stuffed pasta shells with meatballs, One of DW's favorite meals! I told him no problem at all. We had to make 3 dutch ovens full for 20 of us, and it was wonderful. Had three scout cooks lined up stuffing shells.
on our November trip our older scouts made 4 pizzas from scratch for a Friday night snack, it didn't last long. Pizza is easy and a favorite of the boys.

New to the forum and love seeing all the Scouters here being a Scoutmaster myself. Here's my contribution to Dutch ovens, a chart for temperature and cooking types. It's a good baseline but all ovens are different.

Just like there is an organization for Forest River owners there is an organization for Dutch Oven cooking. It is called International Dutch Oven Society (IDOS). The have a website at Go to their forum and you will find sections for recipes & other dutch oven information. Every year in March they sponsor the world championship dutch oven cook off here in Salt Lake. Talk about gourmet cooking in black pots! Check out the education tab on their website. Here's a quote about cleaning dutch ovens from there.
"Cleaning Dutch Ovens
International Dutch Oven Society / IDOS - International Dutch Oven Society
So many Dutch oven cooks have learned to use various methods to
clean their Dutch ovens (DO) and here are a few simple solutions.
1. Scraping:
a. Can use a small plastic scraper or
something similar to remove any
residue food stuffs.
b. One edge will fit into the corners.
2. Steaming:
a. Removed any left over food from the pot.
b. If a sticky or hard crust still resides on the sidewalls or bottom,
add a little warm water, c- ", replace lid and return to the heat
source. Do not use cold water. Replace the lid.
c. Allow the water to come to a boil and steam for at least 5 minutes.
d. Scrap the soften food off. Using paper towel, wipe out the DO
with paper towels, dry the DO out.
3. Vinegar Mix:
a. Take one part apple cider vinegar and four parts water. Filter
out any sediments or residue generated by the cider. Place into
a squirt or spray bottle.
b. Take a plastic scraper, paper towels, & remove any remaining
c. Spray/squirt the vinegar mixture right on the warm DO to moisten
the crusty or sticky residue. Wipe out with a dry paper towel.
Spray and scrap to get off any stubborn areas.
d. Spray and wipe out again until the white paper towel should come out wet but white.
e. Total process takes about 1-3 minutes. If it’s a well seasoned pot, it takes even less time!
f. The seasoned DO does not need to be oiled again. Vent the DO: place a paper towel or tin foil wedge
to hold the lid open for air to circulate. Vinegar acts like a mild antiseptic and serializer."

Here is another thing you might want to try if you hate clean up. Also how to make monkey bread.
