RE: [DUTCH OVEN COOKING] coals
- I have always had the best baking success putting about 1/3 of the required
coals around the edge of the bottom and about 2/3 around the top with a few
in the middle. I tend to use the oven size x 2= 350 and x3= 450. If I am
using a deep oven I treat it as being one size larger for the coals on the
top but not on the bottom. Of course you adjust for wind and cold-
I often don't count, but have found that a circle of coals at the perimeter
of the legs, with a space of a coal or two inbetween, and then a lid rimmed,
barely touching, with 2 in the middle, is very consistent.
The pineapple upside down cake recipe I use involves some melting and
cooking before adding the cake, so I put extra heat underneath initially.
