My wife and I got a dutch oven set about a month ago. We finally decided to try it out. We have both seen and helped with dutch oven cooking before, but have never done it without the help of someone more experienced.
Problem #1 You need to get the coals lit before you can cook anything.
I tried a couple methods to get them started.
Pile of briquets
Briquets in a can
They both worked about the same with a slight preference for the can. (Ok, it took me about an hour to get them going right.)
For dinner we had cubed potatoes with chicken, broccoli and cheese. Start to finish was about 3 hours, and they were still not quite done. (a small bit of crunch, but not bad at all.)
So, Saturday morning, we decided to do breakfast. We got started around 9am and finaly ate "breakfast" at 1pm. This proves I still have much to learn about the art of cooking dutch oven over charcoal briquets. However, Sausuage, eggs and potatoes with some cheese, onion and seasoning did prove to be a good meal.
