you don't necessarily need a camp oven with legs on a volcano

I'm not actually cooking anything in this pot; the photo is for demonstration purposes only.

I discovered tonight that, if you are using a 12 inch dutch oven, you don't necessarily need one with legs.

The coals are on the bottom, and the volcano suspends the pot up over the coals.

Note that only applies to a 12 inch oven.

Now, if you're putting the coals on the center plate, then yes, you do need a camp oven with legs to hold it over the coals.

But, not if the coals are on the bottom of the grill***, as you can see.

***If the coals are on the bottom of the grill, then you will need a lot more coals, than if you're putting the coals on the center plate.

***Unfortunately, there is no information as to how many coals you need, if you're using coals on the bottom. And very limited information, if the coals are on the center plate.

***So, unless you feel like experimenting with how many coals you need, in order to cook with coals on the very bottom-- skip this idea.

***Or if you want to slow cook on low heat. I can tell you from my own experience, that 25 coals on the very bottom made the temperature around 250.
