Who We Are...
In the fall of 1994, the Lone Star Dutch Oven Society was established to form a Texas Society for people who are interested in cooking outdoors in Dutch Ovens. Dutch Ovens are cast iron cooking pots that originated in Europe many hundreds of years ago. In the 18th century they were manufactured in England, and brought to this country by Dutch Traders… thus the name “Dutch” ovens. These wood fired cooking utensils were of paramount importance to the pioneers who settled this continent. The great Texas cattle drives could not have happened without them.
