Who We Are & What We Do

The Valley Forge Black Pots is a chapter of the International Dutch Oven Society (IDOS). Our objective is to share our fascination (some would say addiction) with cooking outdoors using cast iron Dutch ovens. This site will attempt to provide information about our activities and events in the Southeast Pennsylvania area. You can find our calendar of events, Dutch oven educational material, and, of course,¬†recipes. You might even find some interesting pictures of our events and what we’ve managed to whip up in those black pots.

Please check out our calendar and join us at any one of our Dutch Oven Gatherings (DOGs). Beginners are welcome. No need to bring anything except yourself, friends or family. We’ll show you how to get started. It’s easy!

Membership in the chapter is free. But, if you’re interested in joining IDOS for which there is a membership fee look at:¬†Join the International Dutch Oven Society

Our motto: Good friends, Good food, Good fun
