It’s easy to cook up a killer cobbler in a Dutch oven, but these guys actually cooked up the oven, too.
Fifty Boy Scouts, divided into three groups, from the Winnebago Council of Northeast and North Central Iowa actually forged their own Dutch ovens from molten metal many degrees hotter than lava.
Watch the Scouts as they make their Dutch ovens at the University of Northern Iowa Metal Casting Center. Then, check out more about their activity and the Metalwork merit badge in the April 2011 issue of Boys’ Life magazine.
