Although this wasn't really a Susquehanna Iron Masters event, one of our members did go down to support Randy and his gang, as they put on a great DOG at the Blue Rocks Family Campground in Lenhartsville, PA. Randy broke out his 1870's chuck wagon, and we all had a great time putting on demonstrations and cooking for the campground. There was lots of good food, and great times. We have a few photos too.
Despite the cooler weather and a little wind, we had a pretty nice turnout for our DOG at the Montour Preserve. Some of our friends from the Valley Forge Black Pots showed up to cook with us as well. We had a total of 8 cooks, with a range of ages. It is great to see some new faces too as we try to grow our chapter. The food was excellent as always, and just keeps getting better with each DOG we have. Here are some of the dishes made...
- Pizza Casserole
- Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf and Torizo
- Cocoa Rubbed Pork Loin
- Brown Sugar Glazed Ham Loaf and Potatoes
- Roasted Mixed Vegetables
- Ginger Monkey Bread
- Blackberry and Cinnamon Crumb Dump Cake
- Cherry and Double Chocolate Dump Cake
- Mixed Fruit Cobbler
This was a great place to have our DOG, and we will more than likely have another one here in the future. Everyone had a great time, and we are looking forward to more gatherings in the future, hopefully in some warmer weather. We hope to see everyone at our next event.
We had our first official Susquehanna Iron Masters organized DOG. It was a little damp and foggy, but for a mid January day in Northeast Pennsylvania, it was a lot better than it could have been weather wise. We had five cooks show up, and a few interested people who wanted to know what exactly a DOG is. There was plenty of good food to be had as usual. We started the day out with a few breakfast items, conversed for a while, and then started in on the rest of the meals. The dishes served included...
- Mountain Man Breakfast
- Cherry and Jalapeno biscuits
- Bacon Egg and Cheese Muffins
- Dried fruit glazed Pork Loin
- Cranberry Braised Sirloin Tips with Noodles
- Cowboy Beans
- Cheesy Potato Casserole
- Cornbread Souffle
- Banana Nut Bread Supreme
- Lemon Glazed Dutch Baby
- Apricot Bread Pudding
We hope everyone had a good time and will join us again real soon.
This DOG was setup in response to an invitation extended to us from John Smucker of the Bird-In-Hand company. We were set up right in the middle of all the foot traffic that goes on in the area. The day couldn't have been any better. We had beautiful weather, very unusual for this time of year. There were a total of seven of us, cooking up everything from breakfast treats to full blown meals. Some of the dishes served were...
- Sticky Buns

- Sage Chicken with Rice
- Beer Marinated Roasted Chicken
- Brown Sugar Spiced Pork Loins
- Corn Bread
- Cinnamon Flop
- Blackberry Flop
- Collard Greens
- Cherry Chocolate Dump Cake

The best thing about this DOG, was we decided to share samples with the crowd, and spread the word about how great Dutch oven cooking can be. The response was overwhelming to say the least. It was a very successful day, and good fun was had by all. Thanks to all that came out, and we hope to see everyone at our next event.
We had a good turnout at the Downington DOG. This was actually in conjunction with the Downington Fall Fest. We went down to support the Valley Forge Black Pots, and help get the word out about our organizations. It was a beautiful day for it, and as usual there was no shortage of good food. Some of the dishes prepared were...

We all had a great time, and are looking forward to the next gathering.
