Rome Industries 3-Handle Cooker;
I had seen these somewhere and just remembered where;
An Uncle who ran a furniture (junk) store in Colorado died a few years ago and we all pitched in to help clean the store out. Incredibly, it turned out he had some amazing stuff; like half a dozen new in the box electric 1935 "bread heaters" (toasters), and one of the first electric pin ball machines (looked like it would still work, cause it looked like it had never been used) and a couple of really nice juke boxes; again one of them looked like it had never been used, maybe from the late 40's early 50's.

And an entire pallet; probably 35 or 40 3 handle cookers from Rome Industries. Still in the box. Lord only knows what Uncle thought he was supposed to do with them.

And no, before anyone gets fired up, I have no clue who ended up with them or what they would have done with them, or how to track them down now. They are scattered to the winds.

The only reason I mention them at all is to cause stress among buzzards; it's November after all and spring runoff is months away.

What do you mean "allegedly?"

Ok, so maybe you are... since I don't have firsthand knowledge i was playing it safe...

How about a Super Enchilada as a peace offering?

Oarframe, man that is a nice use of the Rome Fry pan. For those of us lucky enough to have a Rome, how about posting up your recipe? Looks delicious and should feed a bunch of hungry rafters.

Thanks Okieboater
If I recall it helped feed 13 of us on a Lodore trip last year. Nothing special about the recipe, chicken, beans, cheese, tortillas and enchilada sauce.... oh yea and some black olives.
I've had mixed results with the Rome as a Do. Due to it's shape it does not want to heat evenly, so you have to watch it and keep adjusting the coals. I get more consistent results in round DO, but the Rome has other advantages.. like being an awesome bacon machine.

That is exactly the info I needed. Number of people it would feed is key. I often cook by 'guess measurements' and given the ingredients I can guess the amounts.

By the way, one of my bud's taught me about baking in the Rome dutch oven setup on a Grand Canyon trip. IE that Rome was the only DO we had. We used it as fry pan on most breakfasts and many dinners as it was perfect for our group size of 16 if memory correct.

His method was to basically cover the bottom outline of the pan part on the fire pan with briquettes and set the pan directly on the Kingsford Charcoal briquettes. Then on the top, cover the flat part with briquettes. He thought this was 350 degrees more or less. Again if memory correct, a total of 37 briquettes comes to mind. Back home I have my GSI hard anodized round DO's and have not used my Rome DO since. But, looking at your dish may bring my Rome set out as that looks like a great way to feed a bunch of hungry boaters.

I made a bunch of DO dishes on that GC trip and this method of briquettes worked great. From cornbread, cake and casseroles - all came out just fine with cooking different length of times by smelling and looking. Never burnt anything from setting the pan directly on the coals.
