Easy Dutch Oven Barbecue Pork and Rolls

If you want to impress people with your Dutch oven skills without necessarily having skills, this is a great way to go. First, read our basic tips for Dutch oven cooking here.

Easy Barbecue Pork (or Chicken)


  • 1 T cooking oil
  • 1 lb boneless pork or chicken
  • 1 large onion, diced (optional)
  • 1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce (18 oz or so)


    1. Heat 24 charcoal briquettes
    2. Place the Dutch oven on top of 8 of the hot coals to heat up
    3. Place the onions in the bottom of the oven to brown
    4. With the onions, brown each side of the meat
    5. Some pork loins have enough moisture in them that you won’t have to add any water. If not, add a cup or so of water and then cover with the lid, adding the remaining 16 coals to the top.
    6. Cook until tender enough to shred easily, turning occasionally and adding more coals as necessary.
    7. Drain off excess moisture, shred the meat (if desired), and pour in enough barbecue sauce to thoroughly coat everything. Let simmer until everything is heated through.



Dutch Oven Rolls


  • 18 Rhoades Dinner Rolls (frozen dough, can be found at any grocery store). You can also make your favorite roll dough if you prefer
  • Butter


  1. Heat 24 briquettes
  2. Spread butter over the bottom and sides of the Dutch oven
  3. Place the rolls in the oven, spaced evenly (they’ll grow together as they bake).
  4. Put 8 coals under the Dutch oven and 16 on top.
  5. Bake until golden brown, turning occasionally for even cooking.
