I suggest a Lodge 4 quart camp Dutch oven #10CO2 or 5 quart Dutch oven #8DO2 .
I used a take-apart, portable tripod I made myself. Click here for construction details.
Here's what else you'll need:
When meat is brown, as you see in this photo, add remaining ingredients. For convenience, have remaining ingredients pre-mixed in a large bowl.
In fact, if you intend to cook this chili at camp, leave out the water and mix the remaining ingredients in an empty 1/2 gallon milk jug at home. When you get ready to cook, pull the jug from an ice chest, dump it in the Dutch oven, then add water.
If you like, let it simmer for 3 or 4 or even 5 hours. There is nothing like sitting around a campfire and watching a pot of something delicious slowly simmering over the fire. The cook can relax because every minute or so someone will walk over to the pot and start stirring whatever is inside it.
I used a 4 quart camp Dutch oven. Notice that the recipe filled it to the brim. Some of it dripped into the fire, but who cares? If you use a 5 quart Dutch oven, you can add another can of Ranch Style or Chili Style beans.
I started my fire around noon, browned the meat around 2 pm, and around 7 pm, my sister and I ate some mighty fine chili.
Use a 5 quart Dutch oven and you can prepare this recipe in your kitchen.
