I received an interesting catalog in yesterday's mail. It is titled "Chuck
Wagon Outfitters" and they carry a complete line of cast iron cookware and
accessories. This is their first edition catalog (1993/94). In his intro
inside the front cover, the owner goes on to say, "I got the bug about dutch
oven cooking back in 1988 when I attended my first Boy Scout Woodbadge Course."
His passion for this has turned into a mail order business. They also have
a small store at the campground of his family's business, Avila Hot Springs
Spa & RV Resort in San Luis Obispo, CA.
They carry a nice range of dutch ovens and accessories. They carry one oven
which is 22" in diameter (not a typo, that is 49 quarts) which they claim to
have "roasted two 22 pound turkeys side by side in the the 22" oven..." They
have the usual ovens down to 8" in diameter. Talk about books, they carry
25 different books on dutch oven cooking. They have some enamel ware and
other cast iron items.
They accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, and American Express. Here are
the other particulars:
