Dutch Oven Cooking our Style

I've had a couple of PM's and a request on the "When do you Camp" thread to explain this picture:

What the picture shows is Two Dutch ovens one stacked on top of the other. This is a standard cooking procedure when one wants to cook two different things in DO at the same time. We are cooking chicken and dressing in the large, 12" DO and a black berry cobbler in the small one. Cooking this way saves some charcoal as the coals on the top of the big one heat the bottom of the small one.

The three pronged device is a tool to remove the lid of a DO.

The "bungee cord" in the background is actually a piece of Dyneema line I tied our awning to the tree with. This beautiful site had two big trees perfectly placed to anchor our awning. We tie our awning down when we will be somewhere for a week or more so we can handle higher wind gusts.

The top aluminum roasting pan the DO's are setting in corrals the coals under the DO's. We scatter a little cat litter between the two pans to insulate the coals from the table. We cook on the table to make it a little easier on the back.

The lovely lady is my wonderful wife with Stripes, one of our three cats, in her lap.

The food was delicious too!

Happy trails,
