Dutch oven cooking is one of the oldest methods of cooking. The versatility of the Dutch oven make it a popular type of outdoor cooking. This single piece of equipment can be utilized to shallow fry, deep fry, bake, boil, roast and stew. Heat is controlled in Dutch oven cooking by placing coals either underneath or both on the lid and underneath the unit.
Instead of lighting up the grill every time you cook outside try Dutch oven cooking. Create a campfire chilli, roast up a brisket or bake a peach cobbler for dessert.
Be sure to “season” your Dutch oven after each washing by rubbing a thin coat of vegetable oil inside and out to prevent rusting.
