Dutch Ovens

Fresh biscuits at the
Duke of the Dutch Oven Cook-off

Did you know that the Dutch oven is the State Cooking Pot for Utah? As a way to honor their pioneer forbearers, the Utah State Legislature named it so in 1997. Utah is home to the International Dutch Oven Society, the site of the World Championship Dutch Oven Cookoff , and is a place where Dutch oven usage is still widespread.

Learn all about cooking with a Dutch oven and get some recipes for the kind of food made by the cook on the trail—beans, meat, potatoes, sourdough biscuits, dump cake, and peach cobbler--on the Cowboy Showcase.
