Coolest Camp Dutch Oven Accessories
If you have Lodge ovens and are looking specifically for Lodge Dutch oven accessories, you have a wide range of options.
Dutch Oven Carry Cases
Using a Dutch oven carry case to store and transport your Dutch oven is a great way to keep it clean and organized with your other camp Dutch oven accessories.
It’s easy to store your cleaning and conditioning gear inside your oven within the zipped bag.
The handles are sturdy making it easy to carry on your camping trips.
Make sure you get the right size to fit your oven. Camp Chef has many different sizes and so does Lodge which fit standard sized ovens.
If you have a “deep” oven, make sure the bag is designed for that; it will usually state something like “Fits Standard And Deep Dutch Ovens”.
Makes me say, Have Dutch oven; Will travel! LOL

Dutch oven accessories make great camping gifts for people who love cooking at camp!
Not sure which size to get?
We have help to answer the question, What size Dutch oven should I buy for camping?
Dutch Oven Tripods
Hanging your Dutch oven on a tripod to cook over a campfire is fun!
We call it “old school cool camp cooking” and we love it.
You will find tripods made from different materials like …
Half Inch Bar Stock,
Cast-Iron and some come with a bag for storage and transport too.
They all work basically the same way; using the chain, raise the Dutch oven high above the campfire to reduce the cooking temperature and lower the oven closer to the campfire to increase the cooking temperature.
One caution: the Dutch oven has a tendency to sway when cooking campfire recipes with tripod accessories so be extra careful when using this method.

Dutch Oven Cooking Stands
There are many different types of stand accessories for preparing camping food in a camp Dutch oven.
A Grill Grate is a nice way to cook over a campfire because you can use the surface to cook other things too (like grilling meat and cooking soup in the Dutch oven at the same time.)
I like using a Dutch Oven Stand that gets the charcoal and oven off the ground when using charcoal briquettes as a heat source.
A Camp Dutch Oven Cooking Table is also good when cooking with charcoal and most styles can accommodate two ovens at the same time; they are also great because they block the wind and allow you to stand while cooking your food.

Camp Dutch Oven Ground Barrier Accessories
When we are cooking with our camp Dutch oven sitting directly on the ground, we use some sort of barrier to prevent heat loss if the ground is damp or cold … Disposable Foil Liners work well and so do Inexpensive Cookie Sheets.

Propane Fuel Source Camp Dutch Oven Accessories
If you are restricted to using camping propane as a heat source … or you just prefer it … you have additional options in Dutch oven accessories.
This High-Pressure Outdoor Propane Gas Cooker has a 1-piece welded steel frame, a large 14-inch diameter cooking surface and wide-set legs for stability.
It also includes a 48-inch stainless braided hose, 10psi high-pressure regulator and a brass control valve.
A Dutch Oven Dome And Heat Diffuser Plate creates a type of convection oven by diverting, trapping, and circulating heat when you place it over a gas camp stove.
This 2-Burner Outdoor Camp Cooking Stove has two 30,000 BTU burners with heat-control knobs, a regulator and it is protected on three sides with windscreens.

We often use our cast iron Dutch oven on a stovetop to make these awesome camp stove recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Dutch Oven Lid Lifters
There are simple and fancy lid lifters. Whatever type you choose is your preference but I don’t recommend not having one!
They keep you a safer distance from the heat of the fire as well as hot cooking equipment.
A Basic Lid Lifter is 15 inches with a simple hook and handle; a Professional Style Cast Iron Lid Lifter is 22 inches and has a two-hand operation to clamp down on the lid for more positive controlled operation.

Camp Dutch Oven Lid Stands And Trivets
Lid stands and trivets are great for keeping your Dutch oven lid off of the ground and out of the dirt and ashes.
Some of the more sophisticated styles do even more. The Lodge Cast-Iron Meat Rack/Trivet can be placed inside the bottom of your Dutch oven to raise foods like meats and pies off of the pan bottom to prevent scorching.
The CampMaid Kickstand Lid Holder and Grabber has a convenient handle that allows you to easily pick up your Dutch oven lid then tilt it onto the other legs to hold it off the ground.
The CampMaid Dutch Oven Lid And Pot Holder is another uniquely designed camp Dutch oven accessory that allows you to grab, hold and safely remove the lid. It also acts as a serving stand because the pot easily sits on top of the lid holder.

Whether you are using charcoal briquettes or a campfire as your heat source, you need to get the fire started for Dutch oven cooking.
We use our Mag-Torch to start both types of fires; it is easy to use with the self-lighting ignitor and it uses a standard NRT propane cylinder (the kind that you use with regular camp stoves.) This is one of our favorite camp Dutch oven accessories that we even use to start our wood-burning fireplace at home.
Yes, we do get lazy when we light our home fireplace logs. LOL
If we are cooking with briquettes, we start our charcoal with our Rapidfire Chimney Starter because it is fast, efficient and does not require lighter fluid.
These All Natural Fire Starter Pods are especially nice for starting campfires in difficult conditions … they are formulated to even light in damp conditions.

No matter what the conditions are at your campsite, there are camping fire starters that are perfect for each situation.
You can also make your own dryer lint fire starters that work really well and are almost free!
Camp Dutch Oven Frying Accessories
We don’t deep-fry foods very often but when we do you can bet we are camping!
The mess and odor that comes with deep-fried foods is best left to cooking in the great outdoors rather than my kitchen at home.
I use my Grill Press to make panini sandwiches but also use it to hold bacon flat when frying it at the campsite. Because this is one of our bacon-related camp Dutch oven accessories … my husband considers it to be a “never leave home without it” tools.
Have I ever told you how much he loves bacon?
For real heavy-duty frying of foods like donuts, fish or french fries, I like to use a Deep Fry Basket along with a Splatter Screen to keep hot oil from burning me and to reduce the amount of grease cleanup I have to do after cooking.

Camp Dutch Oven Cleaning And Conditioning Accessories
One of the reasons I love cooking with our cast iron Dutch ovens, skillets and griddles at the campsite is the ease of cleaning.
With proper care, your cast iron cookware can last generations.
Stainless Steel Chainmail Cleaners are becoming really popular now and so are Pan Scrapers which are available for cleaning flat surfaced Dutch ovens and cast iron pans but they also come with “Teeth” To Clean Grill Pans.
A Stiff-Bristle Brush And Scraper should be one of your requirements among your collection of camp Dutch oven accessories.
Don’t forget to condition your cast iron after you clean it …you can find Organic Cast Iron Oil Conditioners as well as All-Natural Formulas.
You can also get a Lodge Cast Iron Care Kit that contains a small variety of cleaning accessories.

We have 4 easy steps for Dutch oven cleaning which will help your cast iron camp cookware last for generations.
Generally, we use this gear outside but occasionally we use it along with our indoor RV kitchen accessories too.
Camp Dutch Oven Liners
To reduce or possibly eliminate the need for cleaning, you can use Dutch oven liners.
What you are cooking and the type of liner you use will determine the amount of clean-up you have to do after your meal.
If you don’t know how to use Dutch oven liners, we have tips for you.
If you don’t know how to make parchment paper dutch oven liners, you can just buy them pre-cut.
Liners come in Parchment Paper Liners or Disposable Foil Dutch Oven Liners … Note: foil liners come in different sizes so be sure to get the right size for your oven.
Have you ever tried fitting a 12-inch foil liner in a 10-inch Dutch oven? Let me tell you … it ain’t pretty!

Heat Resistant Gloves And Handles
Handling hot equipment around the campfire is much easier and safer with heat resistant gloves.
Some are Machine Washable, some are Made Of Leather and others are Longer To Protect Hands And Arms.
Whichever you choose, remember they are heat “resistant” not heat “proof” so you still need to be cautious when handling hot campfire tools and other gear.
If you are cooking with cast iron pans with handles, you may want to consider using silicone handle holders which are available for the Square-ish Pan Handle as well as the typical Straiaght-ish Pan Handle.
These camp Dutch oven accessories make great camping stocking stuffers for Christmas!

Cast Iron Cookware Specialty Pan Accessories
Timing Is Everything: The Complete Timing Guide to Cooking
Specialty pans are nice to have when you are cooking a meal that is not just a “one pot” recipe like soups and stews.
When your main menu item is cooking in your Dutch oven, your side dishes can be cooking at the same time.
Who doesn’t want the meal to hit the table all at once?
Don’t answer that, it was a rhetorical question and a little joke between me and my husband who has a little trouble with meal timing when he is cooking.
Some of the coolest cast iron specialty cookware accessories include a Lodge Square Cast Iron Grill Pan which is great for “grilling” a piece of chicken or flaky fish in a pan.
One of my personal favorite Dutch oven accessories is this Lodge 3.5 Inch Cast Iron Mini Skillet that allows you to make individual servings … really awesome for desserts.
The Lodge Cast Iron Cornstick Pan is especially fun for making cornbread that looks like and ear of corn while the Lodge Cast Iron Cornbread Wedge Pan turns out nice little triangle shaped servings of cornbread and scones.
The Lodge Cast Iron Mini Muffin/Cornbread Pan is another favorite cornbread cooker … apparently people who cook with cast iron really like cornbread. LOL
The Cast Iron Combo Skillet, Fryer, Dutch Oven And Convertible Lid has so many uses because of the flexibility of the lid converting to a shallow frying pan.
We use our Cast Iron Grill And Griddle Reversible Combo all the time … pancakes in the morning and steaks for dinner!

Miscellaneous Camp Dutch Oven Accessories
A campfire cook’s Dutch oven accessories set would not be complete without a great cookbook.
The Lodge Cast Iron Cookbook is a beautifully photographed cookbook with some really amazing recipes for making at home or at the campsite if you are REALLY ambitious and want to go all out in your camp kitchen.
Some camp Dutch oven accessories have functionality and style!
With a design of a Dutch oven hanging on a tripod and cooking over a campfire, these flexible cutting mat sets and flexible single cutting mat make great gifts that are practical and fun!
And no Dutch oven camp meal would be complete without the ringing of a triangle dinner bell!
