I got a camp Dutch oven (with three legs and a lid) and tried to make two dishes with it:
- Apple crisp
- Nachos (I wasn't sure how this would turn out, but none of the ingredients were raw so it was safe to just try it)
I cooked both on separate campfires that were at least partially down to coals.
Both dishes tasted terrible. First, the bottom was burnt so we couldn't eat it all if we wanted to. But we didn't want to because the entire dish was infused with a nasty flavor, kind of smoky but in a gross way.
How do I figure out what I did wrong? Or if I just got a bad dutch oven?
