Brinnie, thanks for the tour, i enjoyed them. I am liking your DO alot. Do they make them with legs? Im glad your here and i am looking forward to viewing your recipes and pictures.


My New DO has very small leg's " Lttle stumps '' on it and it didn't allow air
flow under it when using Briquettes So I made a Little Table to try out some idea's

The Under side of the DO


Cut 3 Pieces of Pipe


And welded them to a piece 1\4'' Plate at he same spacing as the DO legs


The DO sits and locks into the pipe - Raising it a little to allow air flow


Then I tried Some Damper '' the flour mix''


Ready To Wack in the DO


Sat it on a foil wrapped cake stand in the bottom of the DO


Seems to be working OK


Took the foil off the Rack - Looks like it done


It was still a little Moist inside - But it tasted Great



With Lots of Butter

It turned out OK - But I should have left it In for another 10 minutes
And the height mod's worked out well Cool

Brinnie, i see what you mean on the little stumps. I think your mod is an excellent idea. I have read that you need to turn the dutch oven a quarter turn every 15 minutes to avoid hotspots plus turn lid the opposite direction you turned the oven also. You may or may not have to move a few coals around on the bottom if you find you are having this type of problem. Your DO is thick i am wanting one. Great job for your first try.

Brinnie, I like the mods Very Happy I thought of building something similar for my DO it is flat with out any legs at all, and I figured it would work and you just helped me along with that Very Happy The Damper looks delicious, nicely done my man Smile
