The International Dutch Oven Scociety has a good web-site: www.idos.com with an events page, and links to chapters all over the US.

For those in So. Cal., go to www.socaldos.org
They do about 4 events a year called DOG's (Dutch Oven Gatherings).

You can also check out a character named Cee Dub at www.ceedubs.com . He just moved from Idaho to Texas. He puts on several classes a year, and has written several books.

I took a class from Johnny Nix. He's no longer involved in the classes, but their web-site has lots of info. on cooking over an open fire and Dutch Oven cooking with wood. Their web-site is www.campfirecafe.com . I bought the "Cowboy Cookset" with swing grill. It's a kick to cook on.

Another good web-site is www.dutchovenpro.com

I'll see if I can get a hold of Brenda. She's the So Cal chapter pres. I haven't E-mailed her in a while. I think I still have her phone number too.

Bill Freiberger may also have a way to get in touch with her.

If anyone has any questions about dutch oven cooking please email me. I cook every day in dutch ovens and cater with a chuck wagon-a smoker and many dutch ovens. We have a restaurant in Oroville called Chuck Wagon BBQ Company and stay very busy, so we are not usually involved in competition cooking.

Thomas,

What fun.......

I know catering is hard work, but what a blast it would be to do it that way.

I'm just getting started out with the dutch oven cooking. I'll definitely keep your E-mail handy.

Thanks for posting the offer.

Hey Thom,

I just checked out the stagecoachfestival website. Looks pretty cool. May have to take the Trailer down there and enjoy some music. Will be sure to check out Dutch oven seminar.

Well it is a good excuse to make it again,

Not sure how many pictures were taken, but from the sounds hungry hoards devouring the food I'd say the Dutch Oven Egg show was a big hit at the Bay.
