Scouts love their Dutch ovens!  Over the years, there's not been a single food item that one patrol or another hasn't tried cooking in the classic campfire cookery.  Even the simplest fare can become a culinary adventure when you invoke the Dutch oven mantra.  Such is the case with popcorn...


  • 1/4 cup canola oil (or other vegetable oil)
  • 3/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • butter
  • salt


Heat 12-inch Dutch oven over about 25 coals.  Add oil and popcorn, then replace lid.  Rotate 1/4 turn every couple minutes as the popcorn cooks to avoid scorching. In a few minutes, you will hear popcorn popping. When popping slows down, remove Dutch oven from coals.  Pour popcorn into serving bowl and top with butter and salt to taste. Mmmm!  Better than a night at the movies!
