Killer little app!

I have used this app multiple times and with great success. Mostly when it comes to baking breads as temp control is pretty key for that. Granted, you can always look up the info online regarding coal numbers and placement, but it's killer having it all in a little free app on your phone. Highly recommend it.

Great place to start

Really simple great app to know about where to start with where to place and how many briquettes to use. Especially for beginners and people new to dutch oven camp cooking, the only caveat is that depending upon altitude, wind, humidity, you might adjust a briquette up or down, but thats what experience is for and experience is fun in the camp kitchen

I highly recommend this app. I used it while camping. Its recommendations worked well for me. No limitations on internet connection which is great for camping. I followed its advice for charcoal briquettes with my GSI anodized aluminum Dutch oven (also highly recommended) to bake some cornbread. It came out fantastic.
