This book is not very large in size---BUT it sure has a lot of large information. If you love cast iron or was brought up with it and would love to understand how to use it properly this book will help you. I grew up with cast iron and have always used it, but I didn't understand it completely. Like bring it up to temp and then reduce heat to maintain even heat, because cast iron holds the heat unlike any other cookware. Now I don't start out cooking fine and end up burning the food toward the end. I think this book will help anyone who loves cast iron but doesn't understand it. Also it tells you how to cook your recipes both on the camp fire and on the stove and in the oven. Can't say enough about this wonderful little book.
Great information on how to use a dutch oven, as well as numerous recipes. The recipes are given with oven temps as well. Full of great, tasty recipes!!

I am a little disappointed with this purchase. It may be because I am just not experienced enough with dutch oven cooking. I have only used a couple of the recipes in this book and so far the meals have not come out as I hoped. Most of the time it is undercooked. So, that tells me that the time indicated in the book is incorrect or the temperature is not accurate. Either way the book should be accurate. The book is small...NO pictures. I am a picture person, especially for trying things for the first time. I need to know what it should look like as a finished product. I am keeping the book for the simple recipes but most likely going to purchase another book.
