    My son has a campout this weekend (yes, late notice, already had it out with him) and one of the "challenges" is to cook biscuits from scratch in a dutch oven.

    Another boy in the troop is going to buy a mix (no canned, bang-n-burn biscuits but we're betting a mix would be okay...) but I figured I would throw the request out there and see if it stuck.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have made plain drop biscuits using the bisquick mix in a dutch oven in a campfire. The only advice I'd give is to check them every couple minutes and flip them. They burn easy and I never get the top hotter than the bottom.

    Either one looks good. For a real lesson in Camp Cooking have them use a 5 lb flour sack half full and use only the flour sack to make up the Dough.

    In this, the ingredients must be mixed in a depression in the flour sack. Saves dirty mixing bowels and adds a bit of adventure to the bake.

    I didn't read the other links on making biscuits, but the way we used to do it was... dutch oven on the coals, pie pan on 3 small rocks in the bottom, dough on the pie pan.

    Dutch oven bakng...Golly, that brings back some memories. Haven't done in a few decades but one of the challenges I recall from my early attempts was figuring out how many coals to pack on or around the oven. Being a bit of a nerd, figured I could cut some failures out of the learning process by just getting a small cheap oven thermometer and put it inside. Made a little wire tripod that held it up out of the goodies. Might be able to use one of the cheap little infrared thermometers available today to read surface temp inside the lid. Lesson I learned was it's easy to get it way too hot and the amount of water inside affects temp. If there is a lot of water inside and it is boiling away it will keep temp inside lower so more coals may be needed for dumplings and sauce and fewer for biscuits. Have fun.

    The only time I use a dutch oven with biscuits is to make beef stew and the biscuits end up really being dumplings. =)
