My standard dutch oven breakfast while camping is to make up some bisquick batter, pour into the greased dutch oven, add 4-6 beaten eggs, add your choice of chopped veggies (I like red bell peppers, broccoli, onions, and mushrooms), then finish with 1-2 types of grated cheeses (like extra sharp and jack).  Put the lid on top, stick it in the coals, and add some coals on top.  Cook for 20-30 minutes.  Makes a quichey-sort of thing.

Man I love cooking in cast iron! Thats pretty much all I use at home anymore...  as for the clarification on how much charcoal to use... This is a great chart, but again its only a guide.

Pork shoulder in a Dutch oven inside a Big Green Egg? Makes total sense. That Shredded Pork looks just right. +10

i save that kind of stuff for weekends.  during the week, i eat a lot of vegetables and lower cholesterol food.  i could probably stand to lose ten pounds, but *knocks on wood* my cholesterol has always been good.  thank goodness.

I don't have any recipes, but I've had friends make some killer cobblers in a dutch oven while camping.  Always a crowd fave.

And not the fart kind, either. Going on my first mountain camping trip next weekend. I scored a dutch oven at a garage sale for 2$. I was hoping someone could give me som great ideas for making breakfast in this thing. (bacon not mandatory, but encouraged  ;D)
 
   Thanks!!

You can bake bread, biscuits, cornbread, etc in a dutch oven pretty quick.  Hell, Pizza.

You can flip the lid over, too, and use it as a griddle to fry eggs and pancakes (you have buttermilk and blueberries, right?).
