Dutch Oven Potatoes

Dutch Oven Cooking
 My husbands does all of the cooking when we go camping. (Okay, he does his fair share at home too!)
Over the years he has mixed, added, stirred, and perfected some of the best Dutch Oven Meals you’ll ever eat.
Here he is cooking his yummy Green Chili Pork Chops and his award winning potatoes, (notice the two Dutch oven’s) but I can only share one at a time so today I’m sharing, with his help, his recipe for…

David’s Dutch Oven Potatoes

I use a pre starter for the coals. (pictured above) Use a #12 dutch oven. I put six coals underneath and eight to ten on top. This will give you about 350* degree oven.

    Ok. First I just have to say I love potatoes no matter how they are cooked. But these look awesome. What a fun tutorial. I especially liked the way you overlapped the ingredients photo's. How clever. I enjoyed my visit so much that I am following you in my little blue slippers! I hope you'll come by and see me when you get a chance. I am writing a post for Make My Saturday Sweet.

        I love the stacked book idea as a nahstgtind…I totally need to do that myself! As for books, I’ve recently been reading anything written by David Sedaris. He is an absolutely brilliant writer and sooo funny. I’m literally laughing out loud every other page. I started with “Dress Your Family in Courduroy and Denim” and just read “Naked.” I highly recommend his books.Let us know what you end up reading!

        Caroline, congrats on your prcganney! Wow, that makes 3 CG gals expecting –you, Katie, and Salma. And Lola just had hers. I wonder who will be next? =)Salma – LOL! Yes, getting out of bed could be counted as an “accomplishment” for me, too, on some days.Lola – Coconut and peaches… what a combination! I love both, but have never had them together. :)Wanda – I love this shot. Maybe it’s the angle, maybe it’s the cute frogs, maybe it’s the vine with the pretty blue flowers…Becky – Are you finally playing around with Photoshop? ;p I love the hints of color in this shot! :)

    Yup. These look really really good. I love baked potatoes on the grill as long as I don't burn them up completely. :) Take care and thanks for linking. See you next week, my friend? Linda
