I dont like to "burn out " dutch ovens after having one crack one time.
I will scrub them out with a metal scrubbie and then re-season it by
coating it with a good oil and cooking it at 250 for a couple of hours. or
cooking up a batch of sausages or bacon leaves a nice "seasonin"
Also several of our dutchies dont get used alot so we wipe em down good
with mineral oil and that way we dont have that rancid first cooking
Dutchies are nice but I dont use em alot on basic campouts because I found
that boys who have to master cooking for themselves before they will cook
for the group and that may take 6 or 8 campouts.
we save the dutchies for camporees or klondikes.
Our troops favorite Dutch recipe is 1 bx spice cake, 1 egg, 1/3c oil, 1.1/4
c water or milk, 2 can apples. (or better yet fresh cut grannys or
Put apples in dutch oven, pour in cake mix, prepare a neaded crumb mix of
margarine or butter and flour and sprinkle liberally on top. Cover dutchie,
place 10-12 coals on bottom and 15-18 coals on top. shield from wind.
adjust more coals if ambient temp is below 50 degrees.(Hint put bottom
coals on a small sheet of foil.
Check cake in 30 min or when you can smell it. Done when stick comes out
dry after poke test. Try not ot peek for thirty minutes (20 if weather is
Let the boys serve themselves (bring extra fixins if they are ravenous
#12 dutchy will serve 10 people MOL
