Just got back from my Dutch oven cooking class. They had the niftiest thing. The guy had welded legs onto an old 16 inch disk (as in farming disk), and you can easily put coals in it and move your oven around until it's even. The mounting hole works real good for getting air to the inside coals. Now, does any one want to send me a couple of their old disks???

Dutch ovens are so versatile too - mom called hers her "chicken cooker" and i like making damper-type bread and coffee cakes in it. Oh, and on a good hot fire, you can melt a few bags of pop cans into a nice boat anchor. Course you can make a nice little forge outa a brake drum and a hair dryer. Cast iron, that's the key. :)

Lodge cast iron cookware sells Dutch ovens with three little legs (1 or 2 inch long)on the bottom. The flat lids have lips that hold coals on top too. We use em at muzzleloader rendezvous all the time. My granddad even had a cast 8inch iron skillet with three folding legs attached to the bottom for campfire cooking. The legs were about 5 inches long. Archeologists have discovered ancient greek "dutch" ovens made of bronze with legs cast on them.

I bought a 10 inch Lodge. Pretty neat. I'm now accumulateling all the accessories. This guy had an entire trailer rigged up with griddles and all to feed 100-300 people.
