Practical use of the sportsman's cooker

This is the Lodge sportsman's cooker. It's no longer made.

It was meant to expand the usefulness of the Lodge sportsman's grill.

As you can see, it fits nicely on two gas stove burners; It wouldn't work well across two electric burners, though.

I never used this pot before, but I was told it makes great baby back ribs.

If you don't have this pot, not to worry-- you can make baby back ribs in any cast iron pot.

Mix 1/2 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cups ketchup, 1 cup sugar*, 1 cup beef broth, worcestershire sauce and onion flakes.

*Brown sugar would work well too.

Put the ribs in a pot and pour the sauce over.

The recipe came from a crock pot cookbook, actually, but I cooked it covered, in the oven at 300.

After 3 hours, increased the temperature to 325.

They were falling off the bone. The only thing that would have made them better was if I had cooked beef ribs, instead of pork.

  1. I happened to aquire one of these Lodge roasters, but without a lid. Do you know where I can get one? Or maybe a lid from another maker that will fit? Thanks
