Folks, we have received a request for a forum dedicated to the use of the ol' black pot, the Dutch Oven. Tulsa Jeff will consider this request if there is enough interest in it. You each have a vote so let us know what you think concerning a Dutch Oven Forum.

I know some here have made the transition from cooking in Dutch Ovens to smoking foods. If you're a black pot cooker like me, you use the Dutch Oven almost as regularly as your smoker.

I use my dutch oven in connection with the smoker. So I voted that I don't use it but would like to see the forum and maybe I will learn to do something more that just make baked beans in it.

It would be a nice addition. I personally try to do research on things before I buy something new. Havng a forum for Dutch Ovens would help me understand what I'm getting into before I go buy some. We've got a guy on TV on the weekends that does all kinds of cooking in them, and I'm already interested.

That will be my main way of preparing a meal for the next several months. Beginning tomorrow, I will be doing some brush control work on a ranch that is between Sheffield and Dryden, TX if you want to get the map out. My living quarters has a little 2 burner hot plate, but I have already set up a 3 burner wet back stove and have a fire pit. I will be digging holes and burying things in the morning to dig up and eat in the evening. I will post pictures when I come home or when they get my satellite installed, (could be 90 days). Independence Creek runs into the Pecos River on this ranch and I bet that there will be some fried fish also.

I don't have a dutch pot, but I do have several cast iron pans and use them regular. It would be interesting to read more about them. Who knows, maybe one day I will break down and get one.....

I have 3 ovens and several skillets and use them while camping. I think it will be great to have a section set aside for them. I am always willing to learn something new about them and share what little I know about them.

I would like to see a forum on here dedicated to D.O. cooking. I have been using a dutch oven for a few years when we go camping, and I have made some pretty tasty meals in them. What I have learned so far, I learned in cook books and the I.D.O.S. website and other internet searches. It would be nice to have all of your favorite cooking methods easily accessable in one forum.

I just got a dutch oven for x-mas since I'll be doing more camping with my sons in scouts.

I remember having some great desserts from dutch ovens when I was a scout.

Have never used one other than the modern version. As it turns out, I was given a cast iron pot with lid and loop handle but no legs.
So do I have one?
I 'd also like to know the best method to season it.
For you newbies to Dutch Ovens like me
, you can read more like I did here
