Dutch Oven Recipes

I found a cool site for D/O recipes on the MACA web page. These are for camp ovens, the ones with legs. With a little practice you can learn how to Egg with the D/O in the coals while you're finishing off a brisket or shoulder up on the grid. Camp dutch oven recipes specify using briquettes so there ends up being a little guesswork to approximate the right amount of lump if you try this method, but the most important thing to remember is that you only need a few hot coals beneath the oven. Most of the cooking is done by the heat from the coals on the lid.

    It's not that I like talking to myself but I did cringe when I checked out the Baked Beans recipe and saw that it called for 2 - 30 oz cans of pork and beans. Kinda like opening up a seafood cookbook and the Homemade Clam Chowder calls for 12 oz milk and one 12 oz can of Snow's Clam Chowder.

    Citizen Q,
    Usually we bake our own beans and I agree with you wholeheartedly but several months ago the better half and I somehow got behind in our timing for a family cook of pulled pork. My baked bean recipt is an old family one and they come out like B&M (made in Maine and maybe the best baked beans in the world!. So I did the unthinkable, I opened two large cans of B&M's, dumped them in the bean pot, stuck the little puppy in the oven and they (my children and grandchildren) never knew the difference! They shoveled down the pulled pork, cole slaw and the beans making contented noises all the way!
    Still not the same as far as I'm concerned thoug and will always try to prepare the REAL THING!

    Sundown,[p]That's excellent to hear about the contented noises made during the consumption of the beans. What I worry about, though, are those other "noises" that are often produced after the consumption of beans...[p]Ready for the weekend,

    Cornfed,
    Before that starts they all go home! And it's just me and the Little Woman so it isn't too bad!
    The hard part is when they start to fight over what's left. They want to take home everything! Usually there isn't too much of that but I wish I could keep enough PP to make me happy for a few days.
