"Everything you need to serve healthy, tasty, and satisfying Dutch oven meals (including desserts) in the great outdoors. Tim and Christine, longtime friends of scouting, give you more than just recipes. In fun, easy-to-read prose, their guides cover every aspect of Dutch oven cookery: planning, preparation, cleanup, and safety, as well as helpful back-of-the-book lists, terms, and resources that can make a Dutch-oven novice a Dutch-oven chef. A must for every scouter and scout, too!"—John R. Clark, Managing Editor, Scouting magazine "I have been scouting and cooking in Dutch ovens for over 25 years, and I think this is a fantastic book for beginners as well as for experienced Dutch oven chefs. Recipes are clear and easy to follow. Also included are suggestions on how to select and maintain your cast iron. This collection of field-tested recipes from scouts and scouters all across the country includes colorful stories and experiences relating to how the recipe came to be. Very well organized, lots of tips and tricks, and is sure to make your grubmaster a hit at the next campout!" —John Foster, District Commissioner, Kings Peak District, Utah National Parks Council"The introduction is a comprehensive guide to the dos and don'ts of Dutch oven cooking.
