We recommend an 8-inch, 2 quart dutch oven for the Wilderness Bushcraft Semester, and for any other field school program. Ideally, it will have a flanged lid but no legs. If yours has legs, no big deal as these make it easier to cook in the field. But it also makes it more difficult to cook with on a stove at home, making it a bit less versatile.
We’re creating a video series that will walk you through using the Jack Mountain pot system in your kitchen at home to make some basic foods before you arrive at the field school.
We recommend this one from Bayou Classic because we’ve used it hard for a few years and it’s done everything we’ve asked of it.
