That is really great. It is nice to have a Wife that can and likes to cook. Mine constantly reminds me the only reason she married me was for my cooking!...JJ

I have a big dutch oven and all wonder if I could somehow make a rack with handles somewhat like a canning jar rack or something of the sort to make it easier to lift without disturbing the crust 33.gif

Thanks for the info .. I really want to try this sounds like a fun camping thing to do ..

"Way to go" to the Mrs!!!  I've done pies in the dutch oven in competitions, but at an IDOS sanctioned cook-off you're not allowed to even use a pie plate or pan. You can use parchment paper or aluminum foil if you want to lift the pie from the pot but that's about it. 


The secret if you do lift it out is that you need to make the walls of the pie thick enough so walls don't blow out.

Outstandingly impressive!!! Many congratulations to the Mrs and her stunning results! Nice to have a partner that enjoys some of the same things you do. But you better be careful....she had some dynamite looking food there and she just might pass you by with her accomplishments!!!

That's awesome the 2 of u cook together!! Personally I'm 25 and have a gf. She doesn't like the cooking aspect much, and when I get her to cook with me she gets impatient and decides to turn into a "looker" not a cooker lol! But that awesome u have that bond! Her chicken and ribs look delicious!! Congrats to her on all her winnings!
