Was out at Corriganville yesterday and saw a handy idea to catch lemonade drips from the cooler while camping. Might have to break down, buy a HF welder and build a couple of those.

Also learned some Dutch oven tips and hands on experiences. Not a fan of the liner, but they're easy to clean...

that's easy for sure! only 3 parts if you have a press brake, and 6 parts if you cut all the squares out.

Seems like overkill to me just for a few drops of lemonade.

Never had the chance to cook in a dutch oven. May have to try that someday.
