Over the years, we have amassed a large collection of Dutch oven recipes, and we enjoy sharing them with others who appreciate this form of cast iron cooking. The popularity of Dutch oven cooking has increased greatly over the past several years as many people discover the benefits of using these cast iron pots and associated pieces of cast iron cookware. Most of our recipes can be used for indoor cooking in your oven or outdoors in a more traditional campfire setting.

Great recipe very easy and without many ingredients but the flavor is quite impressive that you would want and ask for more. Best served with open-faced sandwiches over French brioche with the Mustard Based BBQ sauce; completely delish!


3 pounds pork butt roast
1/4 cup Hawaiian sea salt
1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
2 cups water

Cooking Instructions:

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking Steps:
