Why are camp ovens marketed as Dutch Ovens.

My question is in the Topic above.

I have been around the bush for in excess of 60 years, reared on rabbits, blackies , teal and hardheads, swan,roos and emus, 4 tooth sheep, and downer cattle, and home grown veggies all cooked in 2 cast ironCamp Ovens, one a Furphy, and the old oval one mum had I think was a Clark-could be wrong about that make, but reckon I am on the money!
How come (camp ovens I know them as) are marketed here in Aussie, the things are of Chinese origin,(cheap crap), and called DUTCH OVENS.
I really am a baffled old man!

Regards Nick

I thought a dutch Oven was when you farted in bed and pulled the doona up over yours and your partner's head forcing them to experience the aroma

What a stupid comment to a sensible post!







A real Dutch oven is when you pull the doona over the Mrs head and keep yours out in the fresh air!

We used to play Dutch Ovens as kids & the first one to come out from under the blankets for a breath of fresh air lost.
It got real hard core after pea & ham soup.

Tactics are important here chaps.

You need to introduce an element of fear.

You won't get any that night, so time it perfectly.
