Dutch ovens are ideal for camping as its large volume means you can cook simple meals for several people. The disadvantage is, it is heavy so its use is restricted to standing camps.


More than likely, you'll be using a gas stove at your standing camp. Naturally it is much easier cooking with gas than cooking on a camp fire.

If you are cooking at the fire, it's easier to control the heat, by taking coals out of the fire and placing it just to one side. Put the dutch oven on the adjacent coals. You can adjust the heat by adding or removing coals as necessary.
