There are some techniques for using a dutch oven in the campsite that differ from kitchen cooking. The use of coals in/on the cover, and under the oven take just a little practice. You can also stack the ovens and create a chimney effect with the heat from the coals. You could find yourself a metal "tray" to set them and some coals on while they cook. It takes a little practice to control the heat if you set them right in/on the fire pit.
There used to be a cooking show on TV called, The Campfire Cooker, or something like that. He was a real dutch oven advocate. He wrote a few books showing the techniques for using these great camp tools. The biggest problem is that you can't backpack with them.
