looking forward to bringing my electric smoker with us this year. it will be a nice addition to my dutch oven/cast iron cookware and our pressure cooker. nothing like making pot roast in about an hour. mmmmmmm.......... nice way to meet some neighbors too.

I even tried with working with the Aline company rep, but they wouldn't build one to my specs. And if I rember correctly, when you hook up to the water supply, it fills the fresh water tank first and then you draw from that. Which means you have to drain the fresh water tank every time you go camping or you're drinking stale water.
I live alone and camp alone. Sometimes a friend of mine will come for a few days but he always brings his own tent, which he prefers. A lot of open floor space was not a requirement of mine as much as the permanent bed was. Where you have your coffee pot, I plan on putting one of those Sterilite 3 drawer cabinets you see in Walmart. I've had it for years and it holds all my utensils and the top drawer is my junk drawer. All small odds and ends like a tube of super glue, rubber bands, pocket knife etc. I'm hoping my coffee pot will fit between the sink and the wall as there is an outlet close by, between the mattress and the sink cabinet wall. It's there to plug in the heated mattress, which I'll probably never use. Due to the difficulty in making the bed up everyday in a pop up, I have zipped two sleeping bags together. One is a three pound and one a five pound. The three goes on top in the summer and the five goes on top in the cooler weather. With the two zipped together, it more than provides the same sleeping conditions of a full size bed. (I'm getting lazy in my old age.) All I have to do is flip them over to match the weather conditions but with a 20,000 BTU heat pump, I'll probably always have the three on top now. I did put a fitted sheet over the mattress but I couldn't find one that fit properly so it's not tight. For some reason, all the queen size fitted sheets are 14" deep and my mattress is 5" deep. Oh well.
Hard sided should retain the heat & A/C much better than my old camper anyway so I don't anticipate any concerns. Now, if I could only get rid of that stove!

Thanks you to all who answered my question on what a Dutch Oven is. I don't believe I ever saw one or if I did I don't remember. My mother may have had one as we did go on picnics in the 40's and my mother always cooked on a wood fire. Judging by the photo Ko777 was kind enough to post for me to see exactly what one looked like, I would guess a Dutch Oven is the fore runner to the modern day crock pot. And if I ever camp near Earth Station, I'll be looking forward to having some of that apple cobbler. It looks delicious and I love apple cobbler. (I'm too lazy to make it for myself.)
Thanks again to all and Happy Camping,
Jim

havent tried to make a cobbler yet, but tried a pineapple dump cake that turned out ok. that was my first attempt at cooking with a dutch oven, and was surprised by how easy it really was. looking to become more adventurous with it this year.

Okay all you Dutch oven cooks, could you post some of your tips and tricks, and your favorite dishes? Tell us more. How do you make this work for you? Are we talking about an all-day process here? Learned any great shortcuts? Thanks! Courtenay

Yes, I'm with Courtenay. I camp alone and now that I know what a dutch oven is, I'm trying to decide if I want, or should have one. For instance, if you put a chicken thigh and some cut up vegetables in one, does the chicken get crispy like in a frying pan or does it resemble foods cooked in a crock pot? Do you use water or cooking oil? It takes a good 30 minutes for charcoal briquettes to burn down to a usable condition so how much longer will it take to cook the chicken? I found a Lodge 3 quart Dutch Oven that comes with a lid that hold briquettes. The center of the lid is recessed for that purpose, so I'm assuming that it cooks from the bottom and from the top and should cook quickly. But, like Courtenay, a few tips and tricks from you experienced users will know the answers to our questions, and I sure would appreciate some help. I do carry a small charcoal grill but I don't want to spend half a day to cook one meal.
Thanks in advance as I know you kind campers will respond,
Jim

We cook in a Dutch oven all the time. Generally I don't add anything to chicken but seasoning. I put a whole chicken in, season, add lid and charcoal, then walk away. Couple hours later, the chicken is perfectly roasted and falls off the bone. The legs and wings DO fall off, so be careful pulling it out. As for charcoal, get a Weber charcoal chimney. 2 pieces of newspaper, and a match. That's all it takes, will be ready in 10 min. Breakfast is my favorite, as well as my kids'. Another favorite is dark chocolate forest cake.
