Since I'm new to this Dutch Oven thing, I have a question: Do you put the Dutch Oven on top of the Weber Chimney or just use it to light the briquettes and then dump the briquettes into your charcoal grill? (Thanks for the prompt reply.)
Jim

The chimney is just to light the charcoal, then you add the lit charcoal under and on the lid of your oven, depending on how you want to cook. You can control temps by the number of briquettes you add. I usually do mine on the ground, in or near the fire ring.

Thanks for adding that. I was looking for it, but couldn't find. There is also a method for estimating temp by how long you can hold you hand 12" over the oven. Counting the briquettes is better!

We also use coals from the fire (have a special shovel to sift ash out) then we use the tire temp thingy -- this takes more patience and LOTS of practice. We have over cooked and undercooked doing it this way. Counting the briquettes is almost foolproof!!!

Oh-- I can't wait for a campfire!

We also live cooking outside. First and foremost we enjoy being outside when camping and socializing. However, the second benefit cookies g inside the camper leaves the smell of whatever you cooked in the cushions, fabric. Although...cookies are great for the oven and kids inside.

Thanks all. Very helpful. Now about those recipes? Also wondering about that photo of a lining for baking in a Dutch oven. What do you use to line it? Is this to keep it from sticking? Or for easy cleanup? Courtenay

I bought a box of them at Wal-Mart --- you can also use parchment paper. It does make it a bit easier for cleanup.... sometimes it helps to remove food when it is done. I use them occasionally. You can get recipes with a google search, pinterest search, or just use your normal everyday recipes for the oven. If you are on facebook there is an awesome group "Cast Iron Cooking" and there are many recipes/photos there. I haven't grabbed a "normal" pan in months.....

Thanks. Great resources on the web. Check out You Tube. We'll have to give Dutch cooking a try. C
