The wind died down enough that I dug out the Dutch Oven and would try my luck at some corn bread. The mix called for 400 degrees cooking temperature. To achieve that requires 25 charcoal briquettes - 7 under the oven and 18 on top of the lid. This photo was taken after the cooking was finished so pretty much all you see is ash on the lid.
I didn't have the oven sitting level and the batter piled up on one side. Also you can notice how half isn't brown on top. That is because the breeze was coming from that direction. In spite of this though the corn bread cooked fine. I was poking it with a knife making sure it was cooked through.
Oh my goodness! This corn bread was unlike any I have ever eaten before. You don't even want to add butter, jam or anything to it. It is so good just like it is I highly recommend this brand of corn bread mix. All you add is water, milk and an egg. It was all I could do to keep from eating the whole pan full all at once. I'm picking up two more boxes next time at the store.
And with that Beans and I wish all of your a great 2018.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
