Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise.

First Successful Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler

edited October 2012 in EggHead Forum
After four attempts, including the second attempt at this recipe I pulled off a delicious peach cobbler:

http://www.biggreenegg.com/recipes/peach-cobbler/

I stuck to the written recipe (the video varies a bit). The first time I tried the bread was a bit doughy, not quite completely cooked. I let the second attempt go a bit longer, closer to 50 - 55 minutes. Even thought the dome temp dropped to around 400 degrees the dough was cooked through. Having cooked it with the lid off, it had a beautiful crust and was a big hit at the dinner table. I served it right at the table with the DO sitting on two bricks. Even though the picture makes it look a bit burnt around the edges that was not a problem with the flavor and the DO seasoning made clean up easy. We will be doing this recipe again.

    My question too. Four 15 ounce cans comes out to be about 7.5 cups. Seems like a lot...

    You nailed this one! Great job!

    Butert and McCool. Sorry I'm not checking the forum like I used to. Just saw your question. This may sound  weird but I actually like this recipe better with canned peaches. I tried doing a similar one with fresh peaches a couple of years ago (we get some great ones in CA during season) but it just was not the same. The liquid/syrup from the can seems to make a big difference.

    MeTed, It is the BGE brand DO. Not sure if they sell different sizes. This one measures 12" in diameter and 4" tall without the lid. It has no legs. Good size for most recipes. You may do better with a Lodge or other brand that has legs. The legs would give the advantage of keeping the bottom from sitting directly on the platesetter. I have to use a mini grate.

    Hapster. I'll be driving through Chester County in a couple of weeks. My wife and my first significant time spent in Pennsylvania. Her goal to see the QVC tour and Hershey chocolate (ahhhhhh!). Mine to check out the history in Philadelphia and Gettysburg. We'll then venture south into VA before heading north to NY. Big trip for this California born and raised boy.

    @jfarley If you are a beer drinker, there are a couple breweries that will be on your path I can recommend. Victory in Downingtown, Lancaster Brewing Company in Lancaster, Appalachian Brewing Company has a several brew pubs in the area. I recommend ABC in Lititz, you can check out Wilbur Chocolate as well as some of the oldest Pretzel factories in the country. ABC is based in Harrisburg if you are there. In the Hershey area you can check out Troegs.

    DMW, indeed I'm a beer drinker and love the microbrewery trend across the nation. All places duly noted. We'll have a night in Lancaster on our way up to NY to meet relatives. Thanks!

    Thanks to all for the brewery recommendations. Sorry Im so late to post. We were already on a tight schedule but did manage to get to the Lancaster Brewery. The Hop Hog Ale was great. We loved our first trip through this great part of our nation.
