    Here is the recipe that I have used for years and have won several dutch oven scout master cook offs with (at camp,no real big deal). If I can find alligator meat I will add a pound of and back the pork off some. Comes from the International Dutch Oven Society page. As many times as I have made this..there has never been leftovers..hahahaha. It is one of the reasons I started making my own sausage.

    Dutch Oven Jambalaya

    1/4 cup Crisco or bacon drippings

    3 pounds cubed pork

    2 pounds sliced Andouille

    2 cups onions, chopped

    2 cups celery, chopped

    1 cup bell pepper, chopped

    1/2 cup garlic, diced

    8 cups beef or chicken stock

    2 cups mushroom, sliced

    1 cup green onion, sliced

    1/2 cup parsley, chopped

    4-5 cups long grain white rice, or use your favorite

    Salt and pepper to taste

    Louisiana gold hot sauce to taste (about 2 tsp)

    In a 8-quart Dutch oven (12 inch deep), heat Crisco or bacon drippings over medium-high heat on cooker(12 charcoal briquettes on bottom only). Sauté cubed pork until dark brown on all sides and some pieces are sticking to the bottom of the pot, approximately 30 minutes. This is very important as the brown color of jambalaya is derived from the color of the meat. Add andouille and sauté an additional 10-15 minutes. Tilt the pot to one side and ladle out all oil, except for one large cooking spoon. Add onions, celery, bell pepper and garlic. Add vegetables and sauté until all vegetables are well caramelized. Be careful, as vegetables will tend to scorch since the pot is so hot. Add beef stock, bring to a rolling boil and reduce heat to simmer (6-8 briquettes on bottom). Cook 15 minutes for flavors to develop. Add mushrooms, green onions and parsley. Season to taste using salt, pepper and Louisiana Gold hot sauce.  I suggest that you slightly over-season since the rice tends to require a little extra seasoning. Add rice, cover and simmer (6-8 briquettes on bottom, 10-12 briquettes on top). Cook rice 30-45 minutes, stirring frequently.  Serve with French bread.  Serves 8-10

    That is a great thread. We made paella at a jamboree once that was so good. I think we got a prize for it...can't remember,our troop won the jamboree comp totally unexpected.

    There's just someting about the outdoor cooking with all those veggies and meat. I can smell it now.

    Prolly be quite easy to make these with an electric skillet.

    Have a great time at the beach!
