12th Annual
National Dutch Oven Gathering 2015
Bryce Canyon - Ruby's Inn
June 19, 20, 21, 2015

Welcome to the National Dutch Oven Gathering for 2015.  The NDOG strives to bring together folks from all over the country to promote and enjoy each other's company and cooking in Dutch Ovens.  Join us in June to make some new friends, kindle old acquaintances, make some great food, taste some great food and have a great time.

Smaller Dutch Oven Gatherings, or "DOGs", take place all over the world and have been steadily growing in popularity. They are very FAMILY FRIENDLY events.

The National DOG was started over a decade ago as a premier event to gather folks from all over to share food, friendship, knowledge, and FUN. We see old friends and make new ones.  We have friendly, though often serious, competitions, share favorite recipes and cooking tips and learn new skills.  Above all, we share the camaraderie, fun and pioneering spirit of Dutch oven cooking.

At the National DOG, we invite people with exceptional skills to share their love of Dutch oven cooking through demonstrations and classes.  These are unique opportunities to learn, whether you are a "newbie" or a seasoned veteran. If you happen to BE one of these people and would like to help, we would like to hear from you. Maybe we'll have a spot for you on the schedule!  Simply click on the "Contact Us" button and send us a message.

If you are interested in having some fun and learning more about Dutch oven cooking, you can't get a better opportunity than attending the National DOG is for you also. So, make your reservations and come join us at beautiful Ruby's Inn - RV Park & Campground near Bryce Canyon, Utah in June 2015!

What is a bread sculpture??

Answer!!  He is Cute!!!

Kokopelli is our mascot for this year.

Still revered by current descendants of Native Americans including the Hopi, Taos, and Acoma Pueblo peoples, he is truly one of the most intriguing and widespread images to have survived from ancient Indian mythology.

His whimsical nature, charitable deeds, and vital spirit are the primary reasons why he achieved such a prominent position in Native American mysticism. He possessed a playful, carefree nature that seemed to bring out the "good" in everyone. Kokopelli is so irresistibly charismatic that he has been reinvented time and time again for thousands of years by storytellers, artists, and craftsmen.

These are traits that we as Dutch Oven Folks can identify with. We have fun, help each other out and strive to bring out the best in others.

For those who are not camping in Ruby's Campground....  There will be spots available at near the Friend Pavilion to set up a cooking station.  When you check in at the Welcome Tent we will advise you about those locations.
