The East Coast DOG for 2021 Is a GO!

It’s been an rough year for everyone. Things will hopefully get better this year.  The gathering was cancelled last year, and we missed everyone and their cooking. If you are anything like us, you are itching to get out and cook with friends. Things are a little different this year. As for the National DOG, because of the pandemic, the 2020 NDOG  in Texas was postponed a year, which in turn pushed back all following NDOGs. So our NDOG will now be in 2022 the dates have changed from what we had originally planned, they are now in line with the ECDOG dates and will be the weekend after Labor Day as well, September, 8-11 2022. We are planning on having the East Coast DOG this year, unless circumstances would change for the worse. The dates for this year are September, 10-12. The location will remain the same as two years ago in the Classroom at Codorus State Park in Hanover, PA. Registration is now open, so start making reservations. We will keep you up to date, so keep checking back here for any updates. We hope to see you there.


The East Coast DOG is open to anyone who has an interest in Dutch oven cooking, regardless of your skill level. We encourage everyone to come and join us for a fun day of learning, cooking, meeting some great people and of course eating. Whether you are a seasoned veteran, or have never touched a black pot before, there is always something for you at the East Coast DOG. We will be having Dutch oven classes, a one pot cook-off, and a potluck dinner at the end of the day. We are also not far from Gettysburg, Hershey, and Lancaster, if you would like to do some sightseeing. If you aren’t sure you are ready to cook, the public is welcome to come and talk with any of the cooks participating. So bring your iron, and cook up some goodness. It is going to be a great event, and we hope you will join us.
