I just ordered a 9 qt lodge dutch oven. I ordered the style without feet so that it can be used to fry fish with my propane cooker but also want to be able to use it over coals. I have read to use rocks or a trivet under the pot in place of the legs when cooking outside on coals.

Any tips, tricks, pics of your setups?
I plan to make some jambalaya on out camping trip in a couple weeks.

How many coals do yall use on top and bottom?
School me.

THanks

You need the special lid with the raised edge to cook over coals if you want the Dutch oven effect.

After more research I have to agree with you Cast. I'm gonna return it and exchange it for an "outdoor" dutch oven with legs. Hopefully the legs will be positioned so I can still put it over my propane cooker.

Thanks^^

That's the pot I've got, I just use it on a gas burner if it goes camping. I'm not baking a cobbler or anything like that in it, but if you were very careful, you probably could. I want to say 8 or so years ago, one of my buddies brought the stuff to make one, and that's the pot we used.

Just stumbled onto this product. wow.

Be sure you get a hot lid grabbing tool with that.

Depending on size, youíll need a nice bed of fresh coals to get the oven hot. After itís hot, itíll stay hot with much less coals. Youíll just spread a thin layer of coals to sit it on and a few more on the lid. You wonít need a trivet unless you want to make a pot roast and even then itís optional. I do use trivets, but I already have a few.

I've got an Outdoor Gourmet dutch oven from Academy Sports and Outdoors.

It's awesome, use it all the time at home and when camping.

Not expensive either.

Keep a bucket of lard around to season and cook with. Add chili to your list. Brown your meat first, in lard. Donít forget a pot of beans and ham.

When making a cobbler or something that may cook uneven, make sure to turn the dutch oven and also the lid in case there are spots of coal that may be hotter than others. With some practice you can also make pretty good biscuits using one. As far as how many coals to use I have attached web address below as to what I have used.

It's not a science, I just set mine on a bed of coals and throw some on top as well. When it starts to smell real good I give it about 10-15 minutes it's about done.

My favorite at the moment is seasoned Cornish game hens. cover 4-5 with tonys, throw them in the pot with a halved onion, small potatoes, couple whole bulbs of garlic and a couple bay leaves. usually ready in 2-3 cold ones.
