with no legs. I had a piece of 1/4 inch steel plate left over from something so i cut it into a circle with the torch, then cut out the center and welded 5 short bolts on the plate for legs, now i can use it to stack a couple ovens, nothing fancy, but ti does the job.

Nice idea!

I have seen stacked DutchOvens before and never gave it a second thought as to how they were stacked. Alas, I only have one ...

Interesting.

I have a question though. I've never done it but I've read articles on dutch oven cooking. they tell you to put a few pieces of charcoal on top to get heating from all directions. How would you get uniform heating on both ovens?

you would use twice as many on the top lid.the ovens get smaller as you stack them so if the first oven needed 14 coals on top and the second one called for 6 on the bottom, you would put the 6 under the second oven and the other 8 coals out around the edge of the top oven.

I don't see how a Vocano stove would work with a dutch oven, there has to be more heat on top of a dutch oven for it to cook even.

LOL, that will work. Not sure it apply's but i took an old binkmans bullet grill one time set my dutch oven down into the pan with the charcol then put the top layer on and dang it cooked the crap outa a deer stew, done great. Used it for two years before it fell apart. They were going to throw it out before i got it. If ya find an old binkmans grill, smoker with the grates burned out or rusted up as long as that pan still there. Snag it and try it with the dutch oven they cook great in them.

no flame cooking

I live in the desert southwest and a friend told me that in the summer he can cook a meal during the day using just an old tire that his dutch oven fits snugly inside of. He says the sun heats the black tire enough to cook a meal in the dutch oven. I know I am going to try it this summer.
