Hi Dianne,
1st off, let me welcome you to the site.
I am Oysterpot and I hail from Middle TN, kinda like neighbors,

It is kind of hard to point a new person in the direction to DO cooking. My trial was I was handed a 12" DO,
3 lbs of hamburger, 3 pkgs of taco seasoning, 2 cans of taco sauce, and a large package of tortillas. My instructions were to make enchilada casserole HUH. Needless to say there was someone there to answer my questions. After sampling the dish, and totally losing out on a second pass, I was hooked.

No my point is, there is a following on these threads that have different experiences and levels of "expertise" (cough cough).
So my best advise to you at this point is, ask questions. not general questions, but pointed questions. You should get some good answers. Attend gatherings ask questions. etc
Then practise what you have been instructed.

I will garrantee you will make a mistake or two, but so what. Start simple.

Ask away, and good luck........ if you do some computer research you will find a whole world of good information out there.

Hi Oysterpot

Thats great advice.

I'm still learning myself. I got a few recipes under my belt. (that I ain't burned or dried out)
But its fun to see other campers wondering what I'm doing, cuz I don't have a grill.

Dutch ovens have made camping easier. oNe pot meals for the whole family.

Hi Jim and Diane

If your going to be there with Dan, He can show you a lot. I've seen him cook up a storm.

We camped with our families till he took a job up in Kannapolis.

Have fun and keep in touch.
