1 pkg Biscuits in can
Cooking oil spray

Required Equipment:
Dutch Oven
21 Charcoal briquettes, fired and gray
Watch or timer
Heavy duty Oven/heatproof gloves

-Spray cooking oil lightly inside dutch oven while it is cold

-Place biscuits in a circle while oven is cold

-Place lid on oven and place on top of 7 prepared (hot) briquettes that are in a circle to provide bottom heat (Tip: place the lid in line with the handles of the oven, so when it is time to turn the top/bottom, you know which to go)

-With tongs, place 14 prepared briquettes on top of lid, spaced evenly

-Set timer to 7 minutes (1/2 of the total time cooking)- no need for a fancy timer

-After 7 minutes, carefully (& with proper tools) - lift & turn the entire oven 1/4 a circle & replace on coals, then using proper tools - carefully spin the top (don't lift it - it will spin just fine still seated on the bottom) 1/4 circle the opposite way - the idea is to spread out the heat and avoid hot spots

-Turn once or twice more in same manner to finish cooking

-When the biscuits are finished - carefully lift the lid & place to the side of fire ring. Be careful not to get ash falling/blowing into oven - ashes on biscuits don't taste the best

-Using gloves and a long spatula , get the biscuits out of the oven.. Enjoy!

TIPS: . remember that oven has been heated to 350 degrees & it is HOT.
