cast iron bean pots

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Looking for a dutch oven without the legs that hangs from a chain over an open fire to cook beans and other things in, not sure of the proper name.   I looked on the Lodge website and didn't see what I was looking for, checked Amazon and the one I saw was some off brand probably not made in the United States.  Does anyone have any information on this.

If you can find a DO with a hanging loop and it has legs, a grinder will remove them. The legs will help keep the table from burning after being on the fire.


Heres a model that might interest you.......

Thanks for the reply, I saw that one on Amazon.  I have a D.O. but the problem I have with it is it doesn't hang balanced from a chain, the fuller it gets the more it leans to one side.  It has a bump out on the lip like the one in the picture, and the coil around the handle I'm not sure will work. 

I thought about modifying the one I have with a grinder, just haven't made it that far yet, its an offbrand I picked up at a flea market for a few dollars.

I have a couple like the ones Alaskan Bear shows.  Haven't tried hanging them, but they seem well balanced.  They're also darn good stew pots.icon14.gif

My Lodge Dutch Oven doesn't have legs and it doesn't have the lip on the lid to hold hot coals.  It's good for the kitchen but someday I want one with legs and a lip on the lid.
