The Nevada State Parks are hosting a series of Dutch Oven Cook offs throughout the year in celebration of the 150th year of Statehood. The next one will be held at the Old Mormon Fort in Las Vegas http://parks.nv.gov/parks/old-las-vegas-mormon-fort/

Here are the rules I have received from them:

Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort
State Historic Park
Dutch Oven Cook-off Rules
Saturday, March 22, 2014

ELIGIBILITY: The contest is open to individuals or group cook/teams. Anyone under the age of 16 entering individually must have a parent or guardian’s signature.

ENTRY FEE: $5 for each item entered. Participants are allowed unlimited entries. The entry fee will be used to help fund future cook-offs, demonstrations, and other interpretive park programs. Participants have until the day of the competition to enter.

PROCEDURE: Entries fall under one of the five categories:
• Bread product
• Main Course/Meat
• Vegetable/Side Dish
• Dessert
• 1860’s era recipe (in recognition of Nevada’s 150th anniversary of Statehood)

Entrants are responsible for providing all food items and supplies required for preparation of the entry. Entrants are also responsible for cleanup of their immediate area after cooking. Charcoal will not be provided. One hot water station will be provided on site. Participants may set up their own additional hot water stations if desired.

All individuals and teams participating will be required to display a sign (no larger than 8-1/2” by 11”) that states the name of their dish. If the dish is especially spicy or contains foods that many people are allergic to (such as peanuts) that information should also be included on the sign.

All cooking must be done in a Dutch oven and everything must be cooked on-site (i.e. no pre-cooked items or ingredients may be used). Participants are responsible for keeping refrigerated items cool prior to serving or mixing into the recipe. All dishes entered in the “1860’s recipe” category should be made from scratch.

For public health reasons, pets will not be allowed in the cooking area during the cook-off. Only those involved in preparing dishes will be allowed in the cooking area. Participants must follow proper sanitary procedures when handling food and cleaning cutting boards, mixing bowls, and any other utensils used during the preparation of the dish. Tasting of dishes (for adjusting of seasonings) should be done only with a disposable spoon.

SCHEDULE:
The event schedule will be as follows:
8:00am: Park opens, participants may enter and begin setting up.
1:30pm: Judging begins
2:00 -2:30pm: Winners will be announced
4:30pm: Park closes.
At 1:30 pm the judges will line up for tasting. Once the judges have made their rounds. All entrants will be able to line up to sample the competing dishes. Once all judges and competitors have sampled the dishes, all remaining park visitors will be able to sample the entries as well as vote for their favorite. Winners will then be announced between 2:00pm and 2:30pm.

AWARDS PROCESS:
Awards will be given to the top three dishes in each of the five categories. Winning dishes will be decided upon by a panel of judges. Additionally, event participants will vote for their favorite dish in any category and the winner will receive the overall “People’s Choice Award”.

The winner from each of the five categories will be invited to compete against the winners of other Nevada State Parks cook-offs in the Statewide Finals at Cathedral Gorge State Park in Panaca, NV on September 20, 2014.
While this is a judged competition, everyone’s goal should be to have fun and learn some new recipes and techniques!

Entry forms may be submitted one of three ways:

Email:
oldfortranger@parks.nv.gov

Mail:
Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort State Historic Park
500 E Washington Ave
Las Vegas, NV 89101

or in person at the Fort

This is a non sanctioned event hosted by the Nevada Parks Service and not connected with IDOS. The events are a part of the 150th year of Nevada statehood and encouraging people to visit the parks and enjoy outdoors.

All of the state parks will be hosting one this year with the finals at Cathedral Gorge. I had the opportunity to judge the one at Valley of Fire. It was a lot of fun. The cooks all enjoyed the day meeting new friends, learning new techniques and enjoying the great views in the park,

Pony Rider, if you don't make this far south check out the other events at the other parks.

I would love to have the chance to meet you and cook with you. I plan on playing in this one, along with BCToys.
