This image is a dutch oven from a photograph made for McClure's Magazine, January, 1896, Vol. VI. No. 2.

The Dutch oven shown here was owned by Mrs. Ott, of Petersburg, Illinois. It was featured in an article in McClure's Magazine in 1896. "These Dutch ovens were in many cases the only cooking utensils used by the early settlers. The meat, vegetable, or bread was put into the pot, which was then placed in a bed of coals, and coals heaped on the lid."

Camping Tips From Easy Recipes

How to control the fire at camp

More than likely, if you are at a standing camp, you'll have access to a gas burner. 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 pile of coals. You can adjust the heat by adding or removing coals as necessary. If baking, heap them over the dutch oven.
