I have not used Dutch ovens in years.
When I was in the Boy Scouts we used them quite a bit.
It has been years but I remember making a fire, digging a hole, putting coals in the bottom of the hole, then the Dutch oven, more coals on top of the oven, and covering it up with dirt.
We made deserts, mostly cobbles.
At least it was for a bunch of hungry Scouts.

I've never tried to do it over a fire, but Braised Short Ribs is my favorite dutch-oven recipe.
If your library has (or if you're in the mood to buy) Molly Stevens' "All About Braising", it is worth a read.

Biscuits and gravy. Cook the sausage with the coals below, mix up the gravy poor it in. Add uncooked biscuits on the top of the gravy. Take the oven off the coals and the load the top of the oven with coals. I think it took about 15 minutes to cook the biscuits.

I made an old dutch oven classic at the lake. Peach Cobbler.
2 large cans of sliced peaches in heavy syrup dumped in the oven
1\2 box cake mix sprinkled over the top to cover all the peaches
1 stick of butter sliced and spread on top of the cake mix
30% coals under the oven, 70% on top and cooked until the "crust" was turning brown.
The best part was the vanilla ice cream that I had sitting under dry ice all day. Needless to say, I was a hero around camp that evening. Hot peach cobbler a la mode after a long day boating, tubing and swimming = awesome.

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.
