That Dutch Oven is based on the cast iron ones that the pioneers used as well as Cookie the cook on cattle drives. It is not a new concept. Just a painted CI kettle.

Oh yes. The term Dutch oven is sometimes applied to any big cast iron casserole of the Le Creuset type that you can use in the oven or on top of the stove. The connection between yours and the French daubiere hadn't occurred to me

I suppose they were common over here, too, before the days of closed stoves and when trekking west in a wagon. A very good idea and ideal for on the bbq or over an open fire.

The reason I said I had absolutely no need for one is that I have 3 huge CI stew pots. 2 slow cookers and several (slightly) smaller ceramic casseroles. Feeding the five thousand will be no problem if they visit me - I really must have a clear out.

I'm now stuck trying to remember the name of the cook in "Rawhide" - Grrr!

G.W. Wishbone? (217) And he was in one more episode than Clint Eastwood. (216)

I saw them make a "trash can" turkey on one of the cooking shows. A firehouse made it.
