Mark's Black Pot Aprons

Hello, folks...  Time for a between-recipe posting.  I need some help, here.

The other day, I looked at some funny aprons in a cooking shop, and I thought it would be cool to create a line of them for dutch oven chefs.  I came up with a bunch here, and I thought I'd both share, and ask your opinions.  Which ones are the best?  The funniest?  Do you have any ideas to throw into the sauce?  Any more clever ways to phrase any of these?  Post your ideas as comments below, or as an email to me!

  1. I cook in heavy metal
  2. Doncha wishya husband could cook like me
  3. Careful what you say.  I have a knife.
  4. Real cooks don't use recipes
  5. Real men wear aprons
  6. Dutch Ovens: Cheaper than Therapy
  7. Never trust a skinny chef
  8. *%&! the recipe!  Full Speed Ahead!
  9. Recipe?!  We don' need no stinkin' recipe!
  10. Danger: Men Cooking
  11. Dutch Ovens are for Men: Meat, Metal, Knives, and Fire
  12. Well-seasoned chef
  13. I'll cook, you clean
  14. It's not burned, it's cajun
  15. Good cooks never run out of friends
  16. You kill it, I'll grill it
  17. Too much thyme on my hands
  18. Chef's are hot
  19. It's supposed to smell like that
  20. Meatatarian
  21. The Iron-ic Chef
  22. (insert whatever your cool idea is here...)

I'd love to see what you folks can come up with!

Update - 1/21/10

Mark has discovered a love of Dutch Oven Cooking. Mark also has other sites and blogs, including and his MoBoy blog.


  1. I love'em, Mark!
    My real favorite is #11, but I'd shorten it to simply "Meat, Metal, Knives and Fire". (You're being kind of exclusive with the gender specific thing there, anyway!!)
    You might even think about printing them on dishtowels, pot-holders.... dutch oven carrying bags?? We just never remember to put on aprons at my house...
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Don't judge a man by the thickness of his patina,
    Judge him by the content of his Dutch Oven!

    Dont'cha wish your chili was hot like mine!
