If you have never cooked in a cast iron dutch oven then you are in for a delicious surprise. Dutch ovens are a way of cooking roasts, stews, pot of beans or any other one pot meal you can think of. Made of cast iron it cooks evenly. With a dutch oven tripod you can cook over a fire pit and not have to worry about heating up the kitchen. Be sure to throw in a Cowboy Flavor cookbook for some super tasty recipes.
