IDOS is planning a new COOKBOOK and Leslie Tennessen will be driving it. It will be an IDOS cookbook so that's where the revenue will go. This will be a Dutch Oven specific cookbook as opposed to any-old-thing that can be whipped up on a stove. If you have a recipe, this would be a great place to have it published. They would REALLY like to see regional recipes (what can you do with a kielbasa?). Got a great and original recipe? Send it to Leslie at … idosbackyardcookbook@yahoo.com

October 2014 - While we’re at it, The northeast Region has just begun planning for a Pumpkin Festival and East Coast DOG and Cook Off to be held in Bird-in-Hand (Lancaster County, PA) the last weekend of October this year. Is there anyone from the Western New York Chapter that would like to join the planning team for a recurring Tuesday conference call? John Smucker (host of the Bird-In-Hand Inn) is the host so we have the venue and date. Now we need to get into the guts of the planning. We're going after local sponsors as well as Camp Chef and Lodge and maybe try to get Bass Pro Shops on board or one of those guys (Cabelas or Field & Stream). If you or someone from your chapter could join that would be great. The conference number is (605) 475-4000 and we'll start at 7:00 PM. So far I have both Mike's from Susquehanna, Peter Langston and Craig Small from Old Dominion in VA and Dan Milam from South East Campers in North Carolina. My son is also on the team. I'll also extend the invite to the chapters in Ontario, Ohio, and Long Island.
