I use the Mary Kitchen. It comes in 15oz cans.
Perfect. That's exactly what I got. I'll be trying it out tonight.
Last question. When you preheat the oven do you put coals on the top or do you not add them till you've started cooking?

Irish Delight. My first dutch oven meal. Followed your instructions to the"t". Turned out perfect (I think). Somehow even the kids liked it. Now to clean up. Thanks!

Preheat with the 24 coals to fry and wilt the cabbage. When you bake just add the 14 coals to the lid the bottom should have cooled of enough to be the equivalent of 10 coals. Make sense?

Add the desired amount of water in a suitable vessel.
Place the vessel over the heat and wait for large bubbles (time required varies on the heat source)
Use boiling water for instant coffee, tea, hot cocoa etc.

During the terrible War of Northern Aggression, General William T. Sherman made his evil assault upon the civilian population of the Confederate States of America. He left a scorched path through the heart of Dixie all the way to the sea but of all the homes, property and crops that he burned he missed the Black eyed peas and the South was saved from total starvation by this humble legume. So I eat them to nourish my body and my soul and to everlastingly tell W.T.Sherman to kiss my Rebel Ass.

Black Eyed Peas
2tbsp- cooking oil
2lbs- pork stew meat
4 rashers- bacon coarsely chopped
1- onion chopped
4 cloves garlic sliced
1 1/2tsp- salt
1tsp- cracked black pepper
1/2tsp- cayenne pepper
1tsp- garlic powder
4cups- stock
2cups- water
3- bay leaves
1lb- dried black eyed peas

1. Soak peas, drain and rinse
2. Heat oil and sear pork until brown
3. Add bacon, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne and garlic powder
4. Add stock, water and bay leaves, bring to boil
5. Reduce heat, simmer 30 minutes
6. Add peas, cook for 1 1/2 hours

Serve with cornbread. This is a meal in itself
