.....  At the same time, our friends cooked a 30-gallon kettle of "Burgoo" and so we had a major feast when it all was done!
...
Thanks for the vid!
THIRTY GALLONS??? Heck, my rain barrels are barely that big!

After 12 of us had eaten our fill, there was still a LOT.  They had lots and lots of containers and after supper we packaged it to freeze and use all winter.  There was 15 lbs of beef, 6 chickens, 36 lbs of potatoes, 20 lbs of onions, 6 heads of cabbage, several #10 cans of tomatoes and corn.

Have any of you had Burgoo before?

Follow this link to learn more...ours was from a Meredosia recipe, down the road a piece from Arenzville!

Sorry, Moe, I don't, but I PM'd WoodsWoman and asked her if it worked for her and even with her SLOW computer connection.....it started loading right away :shrug:

I got it over there at www.camp-cook.com ,where I got that first cookbook in the thread.  In checking, I find that it's even by the same guy that I ripped-off the first time :rofl:

Posted this in the camp recipes too...but what the hey.   >:D


A good lil ez dessert is a dump cake in a DO.  If you're packin in the DO the ingredients weight is no big whoop. 

Can of crushed pineapple or two depending on DO size
2 cans of fruit pie filling...cherry, blueberry, blackberry etc
box of white cake (use the mix dry...do not add any of the ingredients to make it a cake)
some melted butter or margarine.  (im assuming since you are packin that heavy @ss DO, you got an ice chest too)

LINE YOUR DO W DO LINERS!!! 
then place all the ingredients in the order i typed them...
Drizzle w/ melted butter or margarine
Bake til bubbly. 

Pretty EZ "cobbler". 

MY mini-me absolutely loves it <3
OINK!

I've been over at this link for over an hour looking at Dutch Oven cooking ideas.  This one in perticular really had me wishing I could eat eggs.  I dont know why..but oh does it look good. :)   
 
I would think this recipe can be done in a GI mess kit too. :)
 
http://www.everydaydutchoven.com/2011/11/baked-beans-and-eggs.html
 
And if you have lots of time on your hands.. go to her home page and enjoy browsing and drooling.  I like that she puts assembly and finished pictures in her posts.
 
Enjoy.

Its definately a breakfast for the outdoors.dontcha think?  :)
 
Eggs:.. I grew up on them. ate many many eggs.  And then we (dad,brother, and I) got this horrible egg flu we called it.   And since then I would try eating eggs...fried,poached ect.. but it will come up with out warning with in minutes.  I dont even get a 'sick' feeling.    And when I had an allergy test done with all those pricklings... eggs swelled up the worst.   :shrug:      I was warned to never get a flu or any shot incubated in egg. 
 
And yet..  in baked goods I have no problem.  Except homemade puddings. 
 
But I sure do wish I could eat them..  they've got to be the easiest fastest cheapest meals one could make.  I miss that.
 
Both the guys could resume eating eggs.  :P

  No problem, enjoy.

  Now,  if you're interested I have an old recipe for Cornish game hens or ruffled grouse,  I think I posted it in the cooking section a while back,  I don't know if I could even find it.
  But it involes slow roasting small birds,  part of the ingredients are Granny smith apples, Frozen Apple consentrate,  yellow rasins,  an a little red wine to deglaze the pan.
  It's a pretty simple recipe,  but does call for reducing and straining the pan  drippings at the end,  it makes a semi-thick fruity sauce that's poured over the birds before serving,  and some is reserved for adding more at the table.
  The sauce is so good that you are tempted to drink it right out of your gravy boat  :),  if you're interested, let me know.

  I've never tried it with birds over a pound and a half or so,  Cornish hens, ruffled grouse,  and pheasant,  how much do your birds average weight wise ?

The Roos we just butchered are between 5 1/4 to 5 3/4 lbs dressed.
The hens I suspect are going to be around 4 lbs or so dressed, some will most likely be a little less. That's what they normally are when we have butchered them in the past.

I bought the Boy Scouts Dutch Oven cookbook last summer. LOTS of yummies in that one.  :)    Thats a good site you have there , Wolfy.

Do you know of that dump cake done with a yellow cake mix?  We had a dessert today like that but it was rhubarb as the fruit.  Lordy it was goooood...   warm with vanilla ice cream on it.

Here's one we like:


Mix in your DO:
1 lb hamburger, browned with some chopped onion
1 can sloppy-joe mix
1 can of baked beans ( size to match your group)

Make this topping:
1 cup of Wolfy's Flour Barrel mix
1 beaten egg
Water to make a batter

Drizzle batter over the top and bake until top is golden brown, about a half hour at 350.

Last fall my friend Milz and his nephew Dylan baked a pineapple upside-down cake at our fall meet that was a great success.  He made it the first night, and got so many cheers that he had to make another one for the video!

Theres a facebook site that's growing in leaps and bounds in the last month (40,000 and counting) that's been fun to see all the cooking, collecting and cleaning going on.   

https://www.facebook.com/groups/castironskillet/

They share recipes under files.  And recipes go in waves.... Dutch Babies were a huge hit.  :)

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

We just grabbed a copy of the Lodge Field Guide to Dutch Oven Cooking at our local wally world- think it was $9.00.   We're going camping at a state park this coming weekend and hope to give the new 10" we got last fall (from the factory store) a try.  I scrubbed and seasoned it and the trivet rack last night, but haven't decided what we're cooking yet...probably either stew or chili as it's supposed to be wet and cooler-blah!

The book has 106 pages with quite a few recipes that sound pretty good.  (We may take both and do a dessert too)   :)

Dano, please take pictures of the 10" in action.  I've been looking at one online and would like to see some size reference if you could show some. :)

WW- sorry I just saw this tonight, and we didn't take any pics, sorry.  Next time out I will, but I really like the size so far if you're thinking of getting one.

We did use it on our camp out and it fed 6 adults.  We made beef stew with about a pound and a half of stew meat, then added a few potatoes, carrots, onions, a can of diced tomatoes, a stew flavor packet and then added a container of beef stock to just under the lid (it actually almost seeped over the top as it was simmering).  I normally wouldn't have filled it that full, but knew we would all be hungry, so I added extra stock.  There wasn't enough to save when we got done.  The same thing in the 12" would have had a lot more headspace and not spilled out when I stirred it. 

Not sure if that helps any....wish I'd seen this before we went dangit!

This is the best cornbread I think I've ever had, honestly!!

It is very rich, very moist, very sweet and VERY filling.  It has almost a cake-like quality to it, and could serve as a dessert almost.  I did take a piece and heat it over the coals in foil and had it with maple syrup the next morning....yummy!

This was made in a 12" dutch oven, per the recipe, but I think you could cut it in half and make it in a 10" just fine.  It was probably close to  2 1/2" tall/thick, maybe more.



1 cup butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups milk
2 cups sugar
2 cups cornmeal
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, mix the eggs, milk and butter.  In a separate bowl combine and mix together well all the dry ingredients.

Mix the dry ingredients with the liquid ingredients one cup at a time until well blended.

Spoon the mixture into a cold 12" lightly greased dutch oven and spread evenly.

Cover the dutch oven and bake with 8-10 briquettes on the bottom and 14-16 briquettes on top, for 45 minutes or until cornbread turns golden brown and an inserted fork/knife comes out clean.  (With all the liquid ingredients the cornbread will be almost done, but still have a bit of bubbling going on at about 40 minutes)  Once it is browned and a knife/fork can be inserted and pulled out clean, it's done regardless of how much liquid remains- it will soak back into the bread as it sits for about 5 minutes.

Be sure to rotate the lid and oven 1/4 turn in opposite directions every 10 minutes until done.

Let sit with the lid on after removing from the coals for about 5 minutes before slicing.

Eat until you pass out, it's really good!!

Biscuit Recipe,


Hudson Bay Biscuits
 
2 cups Flour
2 T. powdered milk
1 t. salt
1 T. sugar
1 T. plus 1 t. baking powder
? cup shortening
? cup milk
 
Mix dry ingredients together.  



Cut in shortening until pea sized.


Stir in milk until all dry ingredients form a ball and pull away from sides of the bowl.  Do not over blend.  


Like this,











Put on a floured surface.  
Knead 8-10 times.  Do not over knead.  


Flatten into circle approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick.  Using a cookie cutter cut 7-8 biscuits.  



Put scraps together to form last biscuit.  Again, do not over handle the dough.


Bake in pre-warmed, oiled Dutch oven over medium heat (5 second rule).  Time will depend on how hot your fire is.  Probably 12-16 minutes.


Coals on top,



Check mid way to make sure the bottom isn?t burning but do not keep checking or it will impact the quality of the biscuits.  If bottom is baking more quickly than the top, the biscuits can be turned midway through the bake.  

 











And there ya go!


Bacon, Eggs, and Cheese, with home made biscuits on a sunny Saturday morning.


And for dessert, home made biscuits, with home made, home canned blackberry jelly.


Options:
 
If baking for a sweet treat, increase the sugar to 2 T.  They taste great with fruit and whipped cream.
 
Also if you are doing them away from home you can substitute olive oil for the shortening and use water instead of milk (because there is already powdered milk in the mix). You can mix the whole thing in a gallon size plastic bag.  This will change the consistency of the final product but they still taste good.

This is just a video that was 'suggested' to me on yootoob tonight.  Looks like it might be pretty good....
