|Mark Hansen - The Dutch Oven Master|
|I had never seen dutch oven cooking tables before, but these were sweet! No more leaning over a hot fire and scorching your hair and eyebrows off!|
|Mark talked about the best types of charcoal to use. Here, a friend of his lit an entire 20 pound bag of charcoal on fire for all of us to use. He use a huge blow torch to do it!|
|This group was browning up some sausage.|
|After the bag burned away, the briquettes just kept on heating up. You want them to be white like these few before you put them on your dutch oven.|
|Don't just dump them in a pile...|
|Put them in a circle under the dutch oven.|
|After you put your briquettes under your dutch oven (just under the rim), begin putting them on the lid...|
|But don't just dump them on any which way...|
|We were in charge of making this deep, dark, rich chocolate cake. When it was done...|
|...We flipped it out of the dutch oven onto the lid and used it as a serving plate! Genius!|
|Here's Mark showing off his flipping skills...|
|The finished cake.|
|Another group made a really good Huevos Rancheros dish. I wished I could have eaten it, but it had too much meat and black beans in it.|
On the way home, just about a mile from the house, we almost got creamed by a huge monster truck. I had to swerve into oncoming traffic to avoid getting mushed. Luckily, the oncoming traffic was still a bit away so I was able to get out of the way in time. It was quite scary and I am so glad for the protection the Lord provided us because we had been following the counsel we had been given to "be prepared."
I never looked at it that way until just now, but I really do see now that His hand protected us because of that!
