Cast Iron – Breaking in a new Dutch Oven

Looking at our little “collection” of cast iron ware, the one thing I was missing was one of the Lodge Pre-seasoned 6 Qt. Dutch Ovens. Ordered from Amazon.com at a reasonable price, it arrived yesterday. Having a bit of a problem with one of my feet, Heidi came out to help me and act as […]

Mexican Mac and Cheese on the grill…

This is one of those quick and dirty recipes that can easily be done in the kitchen, using the stove-top and oven, our on the grill using the deep half of a combo cooker, and finally in a Dutch Oven.  The results will be good and tasty regardless of the method used to prepare it. […]

Dave’s Quick Western DO Goulash 57…

Inspiration is where you find it – in this case, it started with Nancy’s Kitchen and her Quick skillet 57 recipe. Later on it evolved to Everyday Dutch Oven and their Campfire Goulash 57 recipe. I happen to really enjoy the tang of Heinz 57 sauce, but obviously had to “Westernize” the recipe by kicking […]

Dave’s Western DO Goulash

When I was a young lad, being raised by my grandparents, we would occasionally go over to my Uncle Pete’s house for the evening and occasionally have a big supper over there.  They had a large family, at the time about 4 boys and 2 girls, so having company over and feeding everybody could be […]

Seasoning the Lodge Combo Cooker

The pre-seasoned Combo Cooker probably “could” be used out of the box, but I was raised by my grandparents and to do so would simply go against the grain, not to mention those “this is how its done” mental tapes recorded so many long years ago and which still pop-up for instant replay today. 8) […]

OK, I’m addicted to cast iron

If I keep this up, I’m going to be accused of having some kind of new fetish for cast iron ware – in particular for Lodge Manufacturing iron ware – and most of all to their “Lodge Logic pre-seasoned” line of goods.  HOOYAH! For quite some time I’ve been looking at their “Combo Cooker” and […]

A little more about charcoal

This is a bit of an afterthought, but in reviewing my own blog I “discovered” that I had left out a few fairly important general tips about using charcoal/coal chunks for BBQ-ing, Grilling, Smoking, Dutch Oven cooking, and outdoor cooking safety in general. Folks, we are talking about fire and very high temperatures concentrated in […]

Dutch Oven – Disposable liners

Wow!  I am certainly not used to getting that kind of service off of an eBay seller – its only Monday and my set of 9 (3 packages of 3) disposable aluminum dutch oven liners are already here!  I’m a “Happy Camper!” <pun intended> 😉 I am really looking forward to giving these a try […]

Dutch Oven – Something new

For some time now I have been hearing about “disposable aluminum foil dutch oven liners” and how well they work.  One woman reported that she “mixes, cooks, then serves” her dutch oven cakes, cobblers and casseroles all in the same liner to minimize how many dishes/bowls she has to wash afterward. (Being a lazy cook, […]

Dutch Oven – More on temperatures

I’ve already admitted that I enjoy just getting my oven’s up to about 325°-350° and adjusting my recipes with cooking time.  Guess you may have detected that I am a “low and slow” fanatic when it comes to outdoor cooking.  Just the same there are some dishes like PIZZA that need the higher temperatures for […]
