    Is that a 12" Lodge DO?

    How long did the sweet potatoes take, cause I can never get them to finish when the rest of the stuff does.

    Boy thats nice looking stew, great for a cold windy day at camp. Really warms you up.

    Nothing better than a good stew.

    I don't use lump because I find the temps are not as consistant as when I use briquettes.

    Then again, thinking about it a bit, I have made meals with just the campfire coals and have had no problems.

    Now you've gone and made me hungry. [​IMG]

    GnuBee. It's a 10" 4 quart Lodge DO. Just right for the two of us.

    The sweet potatoes were not done for me either. Next time...start them earlier in hotter coals.

    Campfire coals work for me. Makes it a little difficult to slow down the bottom heat. [​IMG]
