Destanee Fournier. Dutch Oven. April 23rd , 2017.
Larger and smaller ovens will come in handy in more specialized situations. For example, I use my 14" ovens to cook turkeys and larger specialty meats. My 8" Dutch oven I`ll use for sides of rice or sauces. There are two basic materials used to make Dutch ovens: Cast iron, and aluminum. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Even though all of my Dutch ovens are cast iron, I`ve seen chefs that swear by each one.
Some off-brands will use different alloys or different sources for their cast iron stock. That can make for variations in the thickness of the pot, as well as the density of the metal. In either case, that can make for more uneven heating and hotspots. Unfortunately, you can`t really check for that in the store. It`s one reason why you might want to go with a more respected brand.
Hence, for your camping trip, make sure you have a Lodge Dutch oven with you. Any meal will definitely turn out great with this versatile and portable cookware that you can bring with you at any destination. Even when not on a trip, you can still use these ovens. You can also refrigerate, marinate, freeze and cook food items with this type of oven.
One of the best uses and one of my favorites of using a Dutch oven is burying the oven with your favorite stew in a bed of coals and earth after your morning meal. Let your meal slowly cook all daylong while you are away enjoying your day outdoors. Later in the article we have included some "recipes" for all day stews.
Your oven will need to have some other typical features for a camp Dutch Oven. First, the lid will have a raised lip to hold the coals on top. This allows you to heat the food from above. Next, a loop handle for the main pot and a small loop for the lid. Don`t get lids with `frying pan` handles.
