<p />Was able to shoe horn this 5 quart iron pot full of eggplant parm and sliced sweet sausages into small egg! I was really surprised it fit! Placed onto regular grid on top of 2 fire bricks. I would bet I could cook up some mighty tough cuts of meat with this set up.


  • Charbon, is that a Lodge dutch oven ? Five qt. and no legs ; in the small ?? Chili smoked in the Egg is totally AWESOME...not to mention beans, soup, Mr. and Mrs Toad's apple fixins... Thanks for the "small" idea...The small, some smoke, and a DUTCH OVEN...I will be in HEAVEN....

    tn slagamater,[p]I have a couple pounds of shredded beef in the freezer that came out a bit dry. I was thinking of converting it to chili, but was waiting for a great recipe to fall in my lap. Sounds like you have a bit of experience. Do you care to share a recipe?[p]Thanks,[p]Ed

    <p />Charbon,
    heres my gallon bean pot that just fits, make sure to remove the temp gage before closing the egg with it. i broke a new teltru therm that way. will be looking for that 5 quart lodge pot soon.

    tn slagamater, Yes it is a lodge. I bought it several years ago from LL Bean. I just had no idea it would fit. Makes great pot roast and will be even better when inside egg.
