Last year, I had fun thinking of reasons why folks make the trip to attend a National Dutch Oven Gathering. After reviewing last year’s entries, I decided to expand and/or hopefully add more good reasons why Duch Oven Enthusiasts should come to Canton for the 9th Annual National DOG. Although they are not in any particular order, #10 is “Checking out outdoor kitchens” and is a great place to begin the “Redux” for this year’s journey to Canton.
I have had so much fun checking out many different ways that Ducth Oven chef’s carry and set up their outdoor kitchen equipment. Greg and Sarah’s sweet little Chuck Wagon is the inspiration for my interest in the topic and continues to be a wonderful addition to any DOG we attend.
Here is Bill and Laura’s boxes. This is what inspired me the most!
After talking about what we liked from all of the boxes we had seen over the past year, my better half sketched out a plan, puchased 1/2 inch wood, and made us our own box. It has room for our collection of Bobby B’s handmade wooden spoons and for the cooking equipment we generally use at a DOG.
So,the end result of the #10 reason to attened a National DOG is our new cookbox!
I’d say that is an excellent reason to attend any DOG!
