Anything you can fry, bake or boil can be made in a Dutch Oven. The biggest advantage is a little slower pace, so while dinner is cooking, visit with family and friends and make your meal an event instead of a hurried chow hall experience. A few sacks of briquettes and a couple of Dutch Ovens and you not only have a great camping meal, but you have dinner for family night, dinner when the power goes out, dinner in an emergency situation. Take the lid off and turn it upside down and you have a griddle for your eggs and bacon. Don’t want to use briquettes tonight? Use your Dutch Oven in your home oven, just as yummy.
Dutch Ovens are made of heavy cast iron, with a heavy lid they act a lot like a pressure cooker, cutting down cooking time
