Delia, welcome to the group. Some of the more popular
Dutch oven manufacturer names are:
Lodge - probably the most well known and based in
Tennessee with not only Dutch ovens, but skillets and
specialty pans as well.
Camp Chef - Based in Utah and carries not only Dutch
ovens, but stoves, and accessories as well as the
dutch oven tables which are quite popular & a back
saver--usually about $65 for one at Sportsmans
MACA-Based in Springville UT--a steel company that
dabbles in Dutch ovens as a side line. Their ovens
have a much thicker wall than others and are deep
ovens thus making them heavier than most. Sizes are
odd numbered except for the mamoth 22 inch which
weighs 146 lbs empty! The lids have different nature
scenes depending on size. They also have aluminum
ovens as well as cast iron.
Other names are:
And I'm sure I missed a few (brain dead as we have
been moving for the past week into our new home).
Substitutes for a table can be a aluminum cookie sheet
supported by some bricks on a table top to elevate it
from the table top surface for obvious reasons, or if
you have access to welding equipment, make a frame of
angle iron of the size you prefer, then cut a piece of
steel plate to fit inside the framework for your
surface. Then its a matter of getting legs to support
it at the height you need, which can be some 8 x 8 x
16 inch bricks, a couple of sawhorse stands preferably
made of non burning material like a mortar stand, or
make some legs from pipe to attach to the table-or
maybe just 6 inch stubs which have removeable legs for
transport. Just a few rambling thoughts for
ya.....enjoy the archives....lots of info there.
