So let's here some of your favorite recipes. I just made a Jambalya that was out of this world. Serves 8-10 people.

6-8 bacon slices (cut in 1" pieces)
1 1/2 onions (chopped)
1 1/2 green bell peppers (chopped)
1 cup celery (chopped)
3 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garlic (minced)
1 1/2 lb. Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage
3 lbs. boneless chicken (cut in about 1" cubes)
3 bay leaves
3 cups white rice (medium grain)
1 28-oz can of diced tomatoes
1 48-oz can chicken broth
2 tsp Louisiana Hot sauce
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce

In a 12" dutch oven, cook bacon over 14-16 coals until crisp. (10 minutes)
Remove bacon and set aside.

Saute chicken, season with salt and cayenne pepper. Allow some pieces to stick to the bottom. (aprox 20 minutes)

Add sausage and stir fry an additional 10-15 minutes, scraping the bottom and sides of the pot to loosen any browned particles. Tilt the pot and ladle out all oil, except for one large cooking spoon. Add onions, bell peppers and celery. Cook unitl soft.

Add the garlic toward the end of cooking the other veggies so it will not burn.
Add the rice and stir for 2 minutes to coat evenly.
Add the chicken stock and canned tomatoes.
Season to taste, using cayenne, Hot Louisiana Sauce, and Worcestershire Sauce.
Add bay leaves and re-add the cooked bacon.

Reduce te coals under hte oven to approximately 8, cover and add 15-17 coals on the top and cook 30-35 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Take the dutch oven off from all the heat and let stand, covered a few minutes. Remove bay leaves.

BEER BISQUITS

now this is not near as complicated as Steve's but its sure to be a hit, espcially if you have kids along. its one of my favorite memories from childhood.
one coors light, some bisquick and a bowl. I dont know if coors light is the optimum beer for this or not but a) its tradtion and b) I know it works well. mix the beer and bisquick a little at a time until its nice and sticky then cut it out w/ an old cookie cutter. as we learned latter on you can also mix up them up in a gallon zip lock bag and then cut the corner off and squeeze them out into the pan. absolutely no mess then, just toss the bag. bake for about 8 min with 2/3 the coals on top and 1/3 on bottom we used a round pan that had been a skillet with the handle removed so we could pull the whole thing out and serve/cook them in that. made clean up a snap. Now here is the most important part : LUG NUTS! put three lug nuts under the old skillet and it allows hot air to evenly bake the bisquits. serve w/ honey. makes me cry just a little to type this.

Two words: Cee Dub. An Idaho legend, he was a wildlife officer for the Idaho Department of Fish & Game in some of the remotest places in the state when he started to gain a reputation as a great cook. He specializes in dutch oven cooking, putting together multiple books, dvds, and a public television series devoted to his recipes. Simple, easy, and damn good eating. Give him a look-see...

none of your fucking business
I have a great dutch oven recipe...

Eat mexican for lunch the day you plan on cooking up your Dutch oven.
Add one sheet, comforter to taste...
A dash of easily disgusted girlfriend/wife depending on age.
Add flatulence.
Now quietly pull your sheet/comforter mix over head of companion.

Enjoy!

the dutch oven is a cast iron pot with a very tight fitting lid that can be sat in the fire and have coals/embers placed on top of it.

you can use it in alot of ways, infact as a kid camping my parents would bake in it at times and then wipe it out and do chili or stew for all 9 people in the family.

its kinda like the campers slow cooker.

we just had a chili cook off back last winter up in the center of the totally snowed in nicolet national forest with a buncha rovers attending...I say we have a dutch oven cook-off somewhere thes fall.

something like this

I guess I'll have to start learning how to cook with a Dutch Oven. I don't want to miss out.

I love cooking on mine. I think I'm going to make a low table out of scrap so I can use it at home. This way I can get more cooking time in and try more things.
Chili sounds good!
