One Wed. evening…

Vickie and Dave our host for this Florida GTG…did a Dutch Oven demo…they cooked us a pork loin and sweet potatoes in one DO and pineapple upside down cake in one…to show us the difference in the DO’s…below Dave is showing us the different DO’s in size and depth and what you use them for…you can cook just about anything in them…even fry eggs for breakfast…


Me like other people thought you dug a hole in the ground and filled it with fire …well not so…you can do that ..but with so many campgrounds and other public place have banned ground fires other things have been adapted to make a DO fire pit…below Dave is using a metal fire table…I am sure it has a name but I cant remember every thing Winking smile


Below is a pic of the finished meal…it was delish…it took about one hour to cook …pork tender loin was very tender and the sweet potatoes were perfect…nice and creamy…


Some how I deleted the pic of the pineapple upside down cake that they made also…if I find one I will post it later…as I have more to post about the D O cooking,,,Liz won a 10in. Dutch Oven…and on Sat she cooked in it for the pot luck supper…much fun…I will post about the D O cook off and the pot luck…despite all the rain and dreary weather we have had a great time…thanks for looking and come back soon ….. blessings to all G&M


  1. It seems to me that if you used charcoal briquettes you could have a fire to cook. There aren't any sparks that way. I wonder...

  2. DO cooking is amazing. Another RVing sister did a demonstration for us at one of our GTGs. She had a cooking table and explained how the different recipes called for different numbers of coals under and on top to achieve the right temperature.
