This gear review was originally appeared in Canoeroots and Family Camping magazine.
There’s bad heavy metal and there’s good heavy metal. Bad heavy metal is Def Leppard. Good heavy metal includes AC/DC and Lodge Camp Dutch Ovens. Lodge has been doing their thing for 115 years (longer even than AC/DC). Prepare breakfasts, breads, dinners and cakes all with one pot. With a flanged lid for resting coals on top and legs to keep the oven from smothering coals underneath, these ovens are designed to spend long evenings nestled in hardwood coals. Available in 2- to 12-litre sizes, from 8 to 16 inches in diameter.
