Camping Tip #105

Generally, to get a 350 degree inside-oven temperature the number of coals would be 2 times the Dutch oven diameter. e.g. 12″ oven = 24 briquettes. (use a little judgment here, sometimes more – sometimes less).

Outdoor Camping Tip #104

One charcoal briquette, or equally sized hot coal, will equate to approximately 10-15 degrees of heat on a fair camping day, (not real cold, rainy, or windy).

Camp Oven Tip #102

There are many variations of the Dutch Oven sizes. For example: you can get a 12″ Dutch oven that can be as shallow as 3.5″ or as deep as 7.5″.
