One day, Kit called and asked me if I could help cook the next day for a trail ride and I jumped at the chance.” Sponsored Content Latest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

I’d never cooked in a Dutch oven before. It was amazing to learn how to regulate charcoal heat – one coal for every 15 degrees. And you put more coals on the top that on the bottom. Everything came out just right.”Palmer found so much enjoyment in Dutch oven cooking that he decided that he wanted to do outdoor cooking on his own.“Dutch oven cooking is more than a little bit of fun,” he said. “I know that there must be others around Pike County and beyond that enjoy Dutch oven cooking. I thought it would be a lot of fun if some of us could get together and form a Dutch oven cooking club and enjoy cooking and eating together. And, there are probably those that would like to learn about Dutch oven cooking and would enjoy being a member of a club.”Palmer said he would like for anyone who enjoys Dutch oven cooking or thinks they might to get in touch with him.“If there is enough interest, we could form a Dutch oven cooking club and learn to cook many different kinds of dishes,” he said. “I there’s not enough interest, we could just get together and cook and eat and have a good time.”Anyone who is interested in Dutch oven cooking is encouraged to contact B.B.

We had pinto beans, herb potatoes, biscuits and apple cobbler. We cooked the beans in a pot, and the potatoes, biscuits and cobbler in Dutch ovens. The steaks, we cooked on the grill. B.B. Palmer developed an affiinity for Ducth-oven cooking during his time in Colorado, and now he’s looking for others in Pike County who might share an interest in it.When B.B Palmer and his wife, Nita, left the Palmerosa in rural Pike County in March to “settle” in Colorado, he did so without looking back.Now, he’s back.“I just missed home,” Palmer said with a smile. “It’s good to be back and I think that I’m here to stay.” Cooking up a good time Skip Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Email the author By The Penny Hoarder By Jaine Treadwelllast_img
