EASY DUTCH OVEN INSTRUCTIONS FOR BEGINNERS

 

I love (like?) one-pot meals cooked in a Dutch oven. This is the easiest way to teach Boy Scouts to cook. If you make a mistake it doesn't take much to correct it. Ok, it is possible to burn a one-pot meal but then it's easier to disguise the burnt flavor by adding more 'stuff' (food), seasonings, or by tossing in some liquid smoke flavoring. Under cooked? Just cook it a little longer. To take the guess work out of cooking in a Dutch oven and to...

People never think of cooking a deer 'ham' in its entirety; they only associate the word ham with one of the hindquarters from a pig/hog and most likely it's been cured. I have an older brother who likes to take a whole fresh deer hindquarter (ham) and bake it overnight in the oven.

I have spit cooked domesticated turkeys several times on Boy Scout Family Camp Outs. This is where the whole troop camps and invites the parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and neighbors along. It's usually over a fall weekend and there are no set rules other than Boy Scout rules along with moral and legal ones and of course grownup are asked not to smoke. The boys do first-aid, knot tying, orienteering, Dutch oven demonstrations, and show off other outdoor skills they've learned...

THERE'S FREE FOOD OUT THERE

 

What if I told you that there is no reason for anyone to go hungry? You would say, "Then how come there are so many people in the United States or the world for that matter, that are starving." I would have to tell you that it's a matter of education or not knowing what there is to eat out there and remind you that it's out there and free for the picking – at least in the United States – I don't know about the rest of the world.
