Dutch Oven Cooking
by Byron Bills

I'm wild about Dutch oven cooking! Having been raised in Utah, which is most likely the Dutch oven capitol of the world, I guess it's no surprise. In July of 2002 I decided to publish this web page dedicated to promoting Dutch oven and outdoor camp cooking hoping that by sharing some general Dutch oven information, a few cooking tips, and a handful of recipes, others might benefit from this information.

This page is my internet gateway to Dutch oven cooking. From here you can get to any of my many pages about Dutch ovens and Dutch oven cooking. For your convenience I have placed a contents menu below to help you find the information you need a little faster.

Please take a look at my other Dutch oven related pages by using the menu to the left. Each of these pages contains a brief description of the information found on the page followed by a topics menu for easier browsing.

Thanks again to all of you who have visited my little world and use this information

May your coals always burn HOT!

Tina and I having fun at a Payson Onion Days cook-off.

Dutch oven cooking is a fun way to socialize with people and make new friends. There's nothing I enjoy more than getting my ovens out to cook up something special for an evening get together with family and friends. There's just something special about good food that has a way of drawing people together. I enjoy watching the expressions on peoples faces when I crack an oven lid to let them take a peek at the goodies cooking inside. They all crowd in a little closer to get a good look and then the wafting aromas hit them. Some of them look like they want to jump right into the pot! I enjoy every moment I spend cooking in my ovens and by cooking for others and answering their questions I hope to help educate them and make them want to give it a try as well.

Aside from being a fun activity, I believe that Dutch oven cooking is a living skill that every individual can learn and benefit from. As a society I believe we have become too fast paced in our everyday lives and have forgotten or neglected to learn many skills that, 100 years ago, would have been second nature to us. Electricity and natural gas center our everyday lives. How many of us would know how to cook for our families if those services were suddenly gone? With the Dutch oven cooking skills I have learned over the years I now have an additional confidence that I can cook my family a good hot meal at any time regardless of our current circumstances.
