    Looking for a dutch oven without the legs that hangs from a chain over an open fire to cook beans and other things in, not sure of the proper name.   I looked on the Lodge website and didn't see what I was looking for, checked Amazon and the one I saw was some off brand probably not made in the United States.  Does anyone have any information on this.

    If you can find a DO with a hanging loop and it has legs, a grinder will remove them. The legs will help keep the table from burning after being on the fire.

    Heres a model that might interest you.......

    Thanks for the reply, I saw that one on Amazon.  I have a D.O. but the problem I have with it is it doesn't hang balanced from a chain, the fuller it gets the more it leans to one side.  It has a bump out on the lip like the one in the picture, and the coil around the handle I'm not sure will work. 

    I thought about modifying the one I have with a grinder, just haven't made it that far yet, its an offbrand I picked up at a flea market for a few dollars.

    I have a couple like the ones Alaskan Bear shows.  Haven't tried hanging them, but they seem well balanced.  They're also darn good stew pots.[​IMG]

    Nice setup AB, gives me new ideas for my outdoor kitchen.  I'm always looking, just seem to have hit a dry spell.

    I got one from Lodge with no legs .
  9. My Lodge Dutch Oven doesn't have legs and it doesn't have the lip on the lid to hold hot coals.  It's good for the kitchen but someday I want one with legs and a lip on the lid.
