Attn GarytYes Garyt you are right. It is Parchment paper, much like a crock pot liner. I use my DO every time we go camping. I have a Lodge 10” & 12”. You can download DO cookbooks, Google Boy Scout’s Camp Dutch Oven Cook Book. I think there may be a DO cook book in this forum. I’m going to print the BS DO cook book and then take it to Office Depot and have them laminate the pages and then do a binding. I’ve done this with fishing info, and it works great water/fool proof.
