    Looks really good. I am going to give that a try, minus the beans.

     

    When are you getting the XL?

    In using the DO in the Egg and placing it directly on the platesetter, would I benefit at all from getting the Camp Dutch Oven with legs for an airflow gap?

  • YEM, I would get a flat bottom one and use something for spacers...the camp legs are a pain if you ever want to use the thing on a stove or oven.

    Whats wrong with beans?  You're not putting the chili on a hot dog.  Beans are good for you.  Black beans are a super food.  The Eggfest got canceled.  Was hoping to pick up a discounted XL there. Shouldn't be too much longer.  Maybe around the holidays or after the new year.

    @HH - You can use a stainless steel pot with a lid.  There's really not much difference between that and a ceramic coated DO (both non-reactive cooking surfaces) unless you're searing - the CI can hold a lot more heat, so it will stay hotter longer when you first throw food in.

    Non-coated CI imparts iron and flavor - stainless does not.
    Can you elaborate on the CI imparting a flavor?  I have heard about tomato based food in a CI dutch is not recommended, but a lot of folks seem to make chili in a CI DO.  How much of a flavor? What if the DO is seasoned?  Is this really noticeable?
     
    Really good web page about Cast Iron.  Well worth the read.  I was able to completly restore my Rusty Daisy Wheel after reading the link:
