When I take a dutch oven, I'll bring a frozen rear half of a yard bird. Toss some rice, dried tomatos, chopped onions, some dried beans and some salt/adobo/cajun spice and the right amount of water (this takes experimentation, but you can start 1:1 and rehydrate your beans and tomatos first). Lay the quarters on top and put coals under and on top of the oven. If using pine, be sure to have a blazing fire going for back up coals. About an hour and a half later you'll have a fine meal. If the water is just right, you'll get some browned crusty rice along the edges. Keep the coals going on top to brown the chicken skin.
