Dutch Ovens

Postby Prybis » Aug Sun 02, 2015 2:22 pm

I am looking at getting a Dutch Oven for camping and backyard cooking. What size should I look to get? Do I need to season it or will it be ready to cook with? Since I have never used one before, I would also like to get a book on using these. It would be a plus if it came with some recipes. What books do you recommend getting?

Lodge, a 12 or a 14" is a good size for most. Lodge ovens are a little more money but you get what you pay for. They are pre seasoned and ready to use. I think its the care you put in them after you use them that make them last and cook well. this is a good book to use, lots of great info.
