C.W. "Butch" Welch To Be At IDOS Convention

Today, I received the periodic electronic newsletter from Cee Dub's Dutch Oven and Camp Supplies in Grangeville, Idaho. He announced that he is traveling to Farmington, Utah to set up a booth at the International Dutch Oven Society convention.

Cee Dub will be selling his wares and talking to the public. I'm not sure if he's giving any classes this year. He also said that he's attending the Dutch oven gathering Friday night at the convention site.

The IDOS convention is the perfect opportunity to interact with vendors like Cee Dub. I enjoy the chance to talk to them and trade cooking secrets. Whether you make a purchase or not, vendors like Cee Dub love conversing with convention folk.

In fact, Cee Dub recently announced that his new book, Retro Ranch, will be available for preview at the convention. Retro Ranch "traces ranch and cowboy cooking from the days of the great trail drives from Texas to Kansas trailheads up to the present day. This full color hardbound book Published by Collectors Press of Portland, Oregon, is the newest addition to their popular RETRO SERIES," according to his website.

He's the author of other three books: Dutch Oven and Camp Cooking, More Cee Dub's Dutch Oven and Camp Cooking and Cee Dub's Ethnic and Regional Dutch Oven Cooking.

Ask questions. They'll answer, especially equipment questions. Cee Dub and other vendors like Ultimate Dutch Ovens, Chuckwagon Supply sell a full range of Dutch ovens and accessories. The major brands -- Camp Chef, Lodge, Maca -- are all represented through authorized vendors. Several vendors also give classes at the convention.
