The National DOG (Dutch Oven Gathering) is an annual event that moves to a different state every year. The 2022 site will be Hanover PA, at beautiful Codorus State Park (the picture in the header of this page is a view from where the event will be held). This event is open to anyone who has an interest in Dutch oven cooking, regardless of your skill level. We encourage everyone to come and join us for a few fun days of learning, cooking, meeting some great people and of course eating. Whether you are a seasoned veteran with the black pot, or have never touched one before, there is always something for you at the National DOG. We will be having Dutch oven classes, a 3 pot cook-off, vendors, and potluck dinners. We are also not far from Gettysburg, Hershey, and Lancaster, if you would like to do some sightseeing. If you aren’t sure you are ready to cook, the public is welcome to come and talk with any of the cooks participating. So bring your iron, and cook up some goodness or just hang out end enjoy yourself. It is going to be a great event, and we hope you will join us.

Thanks for visiting! Please, also visit our sponsors page HERE. Without their support, we wouldn’t be able to put on this great event.
