I just have to say I never promised to be consistent or regular about posting. I have been busy and distracted lately. For those who have expressed interest in my pages, I thank you and apologize for the delays. I am glad to report, however, that I have not quit dutching during this delay. Several cool things have occurred. Thanks to my friend Kyle and his Garage of Wonder, I have constructed a cook station. I used 2 large pieces of wire utility shelving, 4 long legs, and a 10' roll of 14" wide roof-valley tin. Add my oil drip pan, and then a high-sided pan. Put it all together, you get a dutch oven cook station. Not entirely amateur looking either.
Continuing the adventurous and experimental theme, I remembered John Howard, Dutch Oven Genius, showing me how he had used canning lid rings to hold up a pan in a large dutch oven to make brownies. I was inspired to quest for the rings. I then saw a set of stove burner rings and had a vision. I took the 8" one and put it in the bottom of the 12", where it fit perfectly. I used a 10" pie pan, which came in a 3 pack.
Love and iron, Del
