The Old Days of IDOS

About 20 years ago, IDOS had no Chapters, just a few clubs around Utah. I was a member of one that meet once a mouth. We would get together to ether cook in the ovens or have guests to teach us cooking techneics, like deboneing a chicken.
One mouth we decided to cook with dried Buffalo chips. We wonted to live what the Pioneers had to go though.  We gathered the chips from Antelope Island. The meeting was held at a members house that was a log home. A beautiful setting for the day. ( I can't remember his name, but I think it was Terry., and he was a Fireman. Maybe you can help me with that.) We learned that they burn very fast and hot, and they don't stink like we imagined. They smell like a prairie grass fire. ( Grass Burning ) You must keep a close eye on things, because it can burn your food fast. A little harder then cooking on charcoal or wood. It was a grate experiment, and lots of fun. Maybe your Chapter can try this and make a comment here on my blog.  Good luck with this and all anther cooking gatherings, aka  Dogs ( Dutch oven Gatherings)
