I don't have much experience with Dutch ovens. My son's Cub Scout pack made desert at a recent camp out which sparked my interest in buying one. What size oven would you recommend if I'm cooking deserts and meals for 4 people?
#12 seams to be the most common size. We them in our troop and pack and use them all the time. We are a family of 3, and I have a #12 and a # 6. The # 6 is good for two people, and the #12 seams to be good for 8+ people. I have been thinking about buying a #10. I'm afraid the #8 might be a bit to small.
I have a 14 I use with a biscuit pan, making gumbo for 4-6 people or frying fish. Of the 5 I have 2 of them have feet for cookin with charcoal the others are flat bottom for the stove top or out door cooker.
