Rohais Belrose. Dutch Oven. May 10th , 2017.
After a full day of camping excursions, fishing, hunting, etc., is there anything better than coming back to camp with a hot meal waiting for you? Well this is done easily with a Dutch oven. A Dutch oven is a large cast iron pot with a lid that seconds as a skillet for your breakfast eggs or bacon, and can give your outdoor experience a wonderful meal at the end of the day.
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.
With your warm Dutch Oven, apply a coat of oil. Use salt free oil like olive oil or vegetable oil. Coat the entire oven with oil. Then, put t back in the kitchen oven to heat for an hour. You can leave the Dutch Oven upright, but leave the lid ajar so air can circulate. Remove the Dutch Oven and let cool slowly. Once it is only warm, place another coat on the Dutch Oven and put back in the kitchen stove again for 1 hour at 350. Remove it and let it cool down again and then add your third coat of oil. Now you have 2 coats of oil banked in and one final coat applied while warm. Your Dutch Oven is ready to use or store until your campout.
Dutch ovens need heat from above and below for baking. The formula for the number of briquettes is the diameter of your oven plus 3 on top bottom minus 3 on bottom. So, for a 14 inch oven put 17 briquettes on top, 11 on the bottom. This will provide 325 degrees of heat. Since one briquette provides 10 to 15 degrees of heat, so add one on top and one on bottom for 350 degrees. Rotate your oven a quarter turn every 15 minutes and the lid a quarter turn the other direction at the same time. This prevents hot spots in the oven. Gloves and a lid hook are good tools for spinning. A small shovel will help move the coals.
To make sure you find all types of Dutch ovens in different brands, sizes, shapes and colors, you will get a better selection if you shop online. You can select from a wider range of traditional to modern Dutch ovens that meet every homemaker`s criteria highly rated by experienced cooks. This is also the perfect way to get full product details and features of a certain brand. Plus, you can order if the oven of choice is not available, which means, you get the exact cookware you have in mind.
