It’s that time of year again – time to start planning outdoor cooking adventures! There will be several Dutch oven cooking events coming. Here’s a few:
• June 4-5: A Chuck Wagon Cook Off will be held at the Fort Sisseton Historical Festival this year. Come watch the wagons cook and compete the “old-fashion” way in their Dutch ovens over hot coals, serving up chuck cowboy style.
