Our good friend, Gary House of Cooking Outdoorshas found an ingenious way to get his Dutch Oven up and out of the dirt to a convenient level to cook with. Easy to clean up too! ...And here's how he did it...
--- In my quest to limit my camping inventory list and the accompanying weight issues, I have been able to develop a couple of clever ideas; some of you have viewed these in my new DVD â€œTaking your Dutch oven to the Maxâ€ and I have shared many through Twitter, Facebook and Cooking-Outdoors.com. My latest frustration has been the packing two cooking platforms, my Camp Chef Big Gas Grill and a Dutch oven cooking table for camping, along with the various additional pieces required to prepare my meals at camp.
I was working on a new camping recipe, â€œDutch oven Pigs in the Hole Pancake Recipeâ€ and just did not want to drag out my Dutch oven cooking table that day. My Camp Chef Big Gas Grill is always available on my patio for cooking and I decided to put it to good use with the addition of just one camping accessory I never leave at home, â€œAluminum foilâ€. This allowed me to use the grill box and side burner to prepare my recipe.
This allows me the ability to flex my cooking techniques, keep my cooking arsenal to a minimum along with a fast and easy clean-up.
The photos below give you a good idea of how I did it.
If you have any Camp Chef Big Gas Grill tips or tricks, please share them here! Would love to know how you do it.
