    For those that have been here a long while know that I used to actively compete in Dutch Oven Cook-offs and then left the circuit when Ma and me lost our son.

    Well, after six years of collecting dust, I've pulled a couple of ovens out and will be doing a just for fun Dutch Oven Cook-off this Saturday.  Have a choice of either doing a Entree or a dessert but I figure "What the heck-go big or stay home", so I'll be doing one of each.  Haven't given much thought about what I'll be cooking for the main, but Ma wants me to do my variation of a Black Forest cake.

    I'll take along my camera and post up pic's of whatever I turn out of them ol' black pots.

    Enjoy!

    Good luck! I need to pull my DOs back out. The last time I used one it was on the trail (day 1) at Philmont (no, I didn't carry it with me the whole time; I had a guide hold it until we finished the hike).

    Well the competition seems to be gearing up!!  I had a several phone calls and one drop in visitor stop by the house last night and the conversations covered two topics 1) Am I going to be cooking; and 2) What am I going to cook. . . Of course I was very diplomatic and too the point with my responses which were "Yes"; "Food" and "See ya on Saturday!!" [​IMG]

    Well, Here are my two entries that I did for the Church Dutch Oven Cook-off:

    Dutch Oven Chicken with Balsamic Glaze-Won "Best Presentation"

    [​IMG]

    Dutch Oven Black Forest Cake-Won "Too Delicious for Words"

    My youngest son helped out with these dishes-he's been wanting to learn how to cook Dutch.  His comment afterwards was "Man-I can't believe how much work is involved"!

    Just wait 'til we do our first actual event when there is a time limit involved and we have three items to prepare.
