I love cooking outdoors, and Camp Chef and cast iron have been a big part of that. Recently, I found that Camp Chef had come out with a 13″ Cast Iron Square Dutch Oven, and I had to have it!

Traditionally, Dutch Ovens have been round; some have legs, and you could cook indoors or out. Cooking with cast iron allows heat to distribute evenly, and it cooks your food perfectly. A well-seasoned cast iron cookware will last for generations and be non-stick. The Square Dutch Oven, obviously has bucked tradition to come up with a completely new design. This 13″ True Seasoned Finish Cast Iron Dutch Oven has a built-in thermometer notch and convenient loop handles on the lid. The lid can even reverse to be used as a grill or used upside down on the Dutch Oven to cook two items at once.  there are no legs on this oven, so you can use it in your home oven.  The Dutch Oven holds eight quarts enabling you to cook for your entire family!

At home we have big family meals. One such meal was our rolled caribou roast, which I cooked in the Square Dutch Oven for twelve people. I placed the seasoned rolled caribou roast with the onion soup mix and water in the Dutch Oven. I cooked this at 350° for about an hour. Then I added potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, onions, and Brussels sprouts; I cooked it for an additional forty-five minutes to an hour. Dinner was delicious!

While camping the Dutch Oven is my go to pot. I love baked apples done over a camp fire, and they are easy to make. I just core the apples, place camp chef Rolled-Caribou-Roast recipethem in the Dutch Oven along with sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, and about one inch of water. Then I place the oven either in the coals or over a small fire. About forty-five minutes later you have a hot, wonderful dessert to enjoy! Don’t limit yourself to just one pot meals or desserts, you can cook breads, casseroles, and meats.

The True Seasoned Finish enables your Dutch Oven to be seasoned right out of the box. If you continue to care for your cast iron cookware you can easily pass it down to future generations to use and enjoy. The MSRP is $77.50, and considering how long you can expect the Dutch Oven to last, this is a bargain! You can buy this and many other cast iron cookware at http://www.campchef.com/cast-iron-cookware/cast-iron-square-dutch-oven.html. There is also a link to a Cast Iron Recipe Book that can be downloaded to your computer or printed off at http://www.campchef.com/media/manuals/CastIronRecipeBook.pdf, which also has a section on caring for your cast iron cookware.

D2W Base Camp Holding Tank Deoderizer

28 11 2014

d2dMy husband and I recently trekked 4000 miles round trip, across the United States and Canada, to spend 3 weeks scouting and hunting for bears. We lived in our toy-hauler trailer for the duration of the trip. Since we were not staying in campgrounds along the way to utilize their dump stations, our holding tank had the potential to get very ripe, scent wise!

D2W had sent out their Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner. This treatment system treats both the black & grey water tanks. This formaldehyde free Bio-engineered Enzyme ScentPrevent technology eliminates odors, breaks down waste and is biodegradable. It comes in a convenient 16 ounce bottle which can provide up to 16 treatments of your tank. This deodorizer and cleaner is also good for portable and marine toilets. Each mL of treatment contains 67 million colony forming units.
I started the treatment process prior to our departure. It took just 4 ounces per 5 gallons at start up, and then I followed up with 2 ounces per 5 gallons for each of the next 3 weeks.

Anyone who has ever traveled in an RV or travel trailer, that did not have the holding tank treated, can attest to the fact that after a week of hot days, the smell could become unbearable. I can happily report, that never happened!
With 2 of us living in an area of just 7’ X 14’, foul odors coming from our small bathroom could have ruined the trip.

We had days where the temperatures topped out at 90+ degrees and days that the temperatures would dip down into the 30’s with snow. The D2W Guide Gear Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner worked throughout it all.

Since I was hunting and trying to stay scent free, if odors from our holding tank had invaded our trailer, the smells would have permeated my hunting gear. Trusting Dead Down Wind to keep you scent free while hunting, you can now trust them in your camper as well. Without going into graphic detail, my husband reported that everything was broke down when the tank was emptied.

The MSRP for this product is $8.99 and is proudly made In the USA. The D2W Base Camp Holding Tank Deodorizer + Cleaner is available online at http://www.deaddownwind.com/store/department/d2w-guide-gear-10009.cfm.
