Dutch Oven Table - Page 3

post #41 of 53

Thanks Wolfman,  The paint seems to be holding well  now that it has had a few days to dry,  but if it does peel in the future, Ill have to put a steel brush on the grinder and take it down to metal and start over with an etching primer.. I really hope I dont have to do that. As Im ready to cook!  Love your new stuff, but especially the smoker.  Debra

So what do you think of that half inch aluminum plate.  Im wondering how it will do with heat retention.  Guess Ill have to try it..

It will not hold heat to good. It will heat up fast and will heat up from one end to the other but once the heat source is gone it will cool of fast.That is just the nature of aluminum but it has the weight advantage for moving it around and as long as you throw in charcoal you will be good.

Here is a Dutch Oven Table I built for my Scout Troop.  It is made from 16 gauge steel plate and has a 20 gauge tin wind shield that is removable.  It sits on 1" iron pipe legs that screw into 1" pipe couplings welded to the underside of the table.  Have had this set up for a few years and have had very good luck with it!

My Grandfather showed me how to cook in a Dutch oven when I was 7 years old.  I have burned a lot through the years but have become fairly proficiant with them as I age!  LOL  I made two of these tables for the Scout Troop and am in the process of making another for myself.  They are from 16 guage carbon steel and have a 1" lip bent into the long side on each side to stiffen it.  Have not had any issues with warping yet.  Good Luck,  Morgan

Wolfman your stuff is top quality work...... No doubt about it.     Maybe I'm just ignorant but ....... . I have done some dutch oven cooking and I don't know how the little legs on the dutch oven are going to sit solidly and securely on expanded metal. Fill me in. BJ

The table was an order from a guy that did competitive cooking and used his dutch oven's to make his side dishes and sauces. So how the pots would sit on there I have no clue I just build it to his need. I think he was going to build his fire on top of the grate and set his pots in to the ashes. Well as you can see at the end of the post I converted it to a grill since the guy back out. But as a grill it was great.
