oh cool !!
I have a 14" DO and never used it - I inherited it from my brother.
According to the Chuck Wagon cooking shows on TV, some awesome
meals can be prepared with the pot.
The most informative tip that I learned is that one charcoal briquette
will generate 10 degrees of heat.........
so if you place 35 hot briquettes on the lid, that will give you 350 degrees
on the inside - perfect for cobblers and biscuits.

Great Job !!!!

Got a couple of DO that I inherited and never have used either one. Seen a few of those cooking shows where they use them. I guess they're great if you go all out on your camping meals, but we have a more primitive setup when we camp. LoL

I cook with charcoal. I put the charcoal in a chimney and go inside and finish prepping and by that time the charcoal is ready to go. One day when I get time I want to start making my own lump charcoal.

I'm in the market for a Dutch oven. But I'm cheap, I'll find an old one
and restore it. I've done five iron frying pans so far. But I need ten and
twelve inch pans.
I got a new Lodge pan and don't like it. I've seen video's where they sand them
smooth then season them.
That upside down cake looked so good My blood sugar went up just lookin at it.

Thanks. I didn't have any issues with the new Dutch oven I got. I washed it really good in hot water put it outside in the sun so it could get really hot and fired up my grill and did 2 rounds coating it in crisco.

So where did you say you live again??? I am on my way!
Some of the guys I hunt with used to cook with them. When we came back from the morning hunt they would do the prep work and when we left for the evening hunt they would fire them up and dinner was done by the time we returned. Doesnt get much better than that.

Great job. Now don't have any fear about cooking main dishes and side dishes. Bread takes a little more practice, but mostly all you need to do is use a lot of top heat and minimal bottom heat.

That is a thing of beauty!!!!!!

Just one caution about old used cast iron. Make sure that you get from someplace you trust. Back in the day, many pots and pans were used to melt lead for fire arms and fishing weights.
