A Gathering of Iron Heads

By Keith Fisher

Every year, a great opportunity is presented to the people of Utah, and the World. I’ve spoken about this before, and once again, I’m amazed that so many good folks don’t take advantage of it.

Every spring, International Dutch Oven Society, (IDOS) holds a Dutch oven convention in Farmington Utah. There is talk of moving the location, but it has been on the Davis County Fairgrounds for many years.

The event starts this Friday with a (DOG), Dutch oven gathering (Potluck party). Bring food. Cook it there, get a ton of tips, share some of your own.

Some of us will be camping, and staying over. You’re welcome to sit by my off the ground campfire and chat. I might have a few marshmallows to roast.

The next morning, Saturday at 9 a.m. the convention begins. There will be vendors, classes, demos, and The Taste of Dutch. I will be cooking free samples along with many others. You can help me, by suggesting something for me to cook. What do you want to eat?

Also on Saturday, there will be a Dutch oven cook off for youth. Terry Lewis is directing it, and he needs more competitors. Come see what these kids can do. I judged that cook off for a few years, and I know most of those dishes would give the adults a run for their money.

For more information on any of these events, or to enter your kids in the cook off, go to the IDOS website. See you there.

As an added incentive, if you find me at the convention, and mention you saw this blog, I will enter you in my drawing. If you leave a comment, then mention it at the convention, I will enter you twice.

The winner will get their choice of a Chuck wagon dinner bell, Camp cooking video, or Dutch oven candle. Now I have to remember to take them with me, Darn!
