Tips on cleaning a crusty Dutch oven?

Alexandra Eisler | Jun 17, 2005 12:24 PM

I ruined my Dutch oven on our final camping trip last summer (peach/berry cobbler gone horribly wrong), and am ready to try it out again.

But first I have to removed the carbonized chunks now fused to the iron, and I don't have a self-cleaning oven, (recommended by the International Dutch Oven Society) or a blowtorch (tip found on a random Boy Scout blog).

Any other ideas?
