Title: Cooking in the Cold
Post by: DeShawn on October 18, 2011, 08:06:42 am
The weather is starting to change in Utah, and generally, I cook with my dutch ovens less in the cold that I do during warmer weather.

So do you cook outdoors year round?  What adjustments do you make when cooking in cold weather?

When I've done cooking in the cold (admittedly less than at other times) I have found very little need for adjustments. MAYBE a little more heat, but that's about it.

I'm working on a chili recipe at home, and I'm thinking that one of these Saturdays, maybe in November, I need to bust out the dutch oven and make it in there. If so, I'll have to quantify it, right now it's sort of "add a little bit of this, add a little bit of that", but I'm thinking that using the cast iron can only make it better.
