Got a nice little sow last weekend. The ham was the perfect size for the dutch oven so I thought I'd give it a shot. Came out perfect!

Injected with Tony's Roasted Garlic
Seasoned with Tony's Original, Course black pepper, and garlic powder
Tossed in some whole red potatoes, japs, onion, 2 bulbs worth of garlic cloves (I do love garlic), and some bay leaves

Stuck it in the fire, added some top coals, and let her bake for about 1.5 hrs. I gauge the done-ness by smell. Came out pretty good!

Never cooked anything like that in a dutch before, looks great.

I have always had problems with too much heat on the bottom burning stuff like biscuits, pie/cobbler, cake etc.

With something like that or a roast etc. do you not worry about it and just put plenty of heat on it or did you clear coals from the bottom or just plunk it in the coals?

Thanks

I just set it right on top of the coals and added some to the top. about half way through i did clear the bottom and top coals and let it kind of simmer. I really don't think there's a science to it, when it starts to smell really good it's about done IMO. I did stick a thermometer in it to make sure it was cooked all the way but other than that, I always just kinda guess at it and more often than not it comes out better than expected.

Haven't tried a cobbler yet, I imagine it'd be a little more involved.

well done ... it's been too long since I have messed around cooking on a campfire in a dutch oven. used to take a small to medium size deer shoulder roast and do very similar to what DuckCoach did above with a little liquid whatever was available (water, coke, dr. pepper, beer, etc.)

My dad had a sure fire cobbler recipe that was so simple using canned fruit pie filling, box yellow cake mix and butter but yes, it's very easy to burn it, especially the bottom if not careful. flat nosed shovel worked great for both leveling out a spot in the coals and scooping coals on the lid. 1 box yellow cake mix, 1 large can of fruit pie filling, about a 1/2 cup butter and a little cinnamon if available. prep coals & bed, place dutch oven in bed, dump pie filling in, spread dry cake mix on top of pie filling and spread evenly, cut butter into even size pieces and arrange over the top of the dry cake mix, sprinkle with cinnamon (if avaiable). put lid on and put hot coals within the lip of the lid ... time all depended on how hot the fire was, 10-45 minutes.

Get a cast iron trivet to put under the roast and keep the bottom from burning.
