Well, it was another questionable success yesterday with this new recipe I tried. It was very windy yesterday, but it was unusually gusty, which made it very difficult to maintain even cooking tempratures. I REALLY need to solve my windbreak problem.
Another problem is that the recipe calls for the use of a 12" dutch oven, which I feel is just a bit too small. The cobbler came to just under the lid, which caused the top to get burned very easily. Once the cobbler had cooled, I did slice the burned top off the cobbler so that it didn't look too bad (the next time I make this I'll use my 12" deep dutch oven). As a result, I had to remove the top heat, which in turn affected the cooking time. Plus, in trying to get the cobbler cooked with just bottom heat, I had to add more coals, which in turn ended up burning the bottom of the cobbler even though I was rotating the Do every 3 - 4 minutes. But even with all of these problems, the people that tried some of it really enjoyed it. One guy went back three times.
So even though I consider this attempt a failure, I guess it really wasn't since people did enjoy it.
Even though this attempt turned out less than ideal, I'll definitely make this again, because I think this will be a real winner when it comes out the way it's supposed to.
