Dutch Oven. Drain or Not?

Can't decide and too lazy to search. Can we revisit this topic again???

If you drain the DO you'll have more room inside to fit your cat.

Boring Summer huh?

Seriously though, since you started the topic, I don't own a D.O. Are they really awesome like everyone says? When we're rafting we try to keep dinners simple. Can you share any insight on D. O. cooking and if I should get one or not? Thanks

If you have the time (2-5 hours, including prep and cooking) and don't mind carrying cast iron, meals from Dutch oven cookery are great!

Cast iron dutch ovens should be drained but aluminum ones should not be drained or is it the other way around?

Dutch ovens are for more than just cooking, I've taken mine to bed with me! On a cold, wet Deso trip, when I lost the zippers on my rain fly and tent door, I put rocks heated in the coals of the firepan inside the ovens. I left the lids ajar and draped my sleeping bag over them. They stayed nice and warm while I dozed off. I'm very fond of them.

They rock, and the iron ones weigh as much as a rock. The recipes can be easy, with precooked meat so you just dump it all in and go, or elaborate and time consuming. I picked up a great white lasagna recipe from the buzz, and by precooking the meat and using fresh ravioli, it is easy. Plus, we often use do's in lieu of fry pans, so the kitchen box is more efficient.
