Out camping at Lake Wabamun for the last weekend of summer. Cooking a roast pork with fresh garden carrots and potatoes in my cast iron dutch oven. This oven gets used every time we camp now.

I have a good cast iron dutch oven. I also have my grandmother's cast iron skillet. They last many lifetimes, if cared for properly, and it is neat knowing so many wonderful meals have been prepared in them!

The more they are used the better they are. I have seen too many people throw away a perfectly good Dutch Oven for a new one.:unknown:

My cast skillets are many many years old too. I have a cast griddle for pancakes that I use sometimes. The dutch oven is a new addition to my camping gear. Good thing I'm not back packing.:eek:

I couldn't help laughing at this. Yes, the one drawback to good cast iton is the weight. I could just picture some of us trying tp backback up hills, etc., carrying our good cookware. I might be the first one complaining if we tried to do that! :laugh:

Not meaning to hijack, but that is a neat little trailer. I remember you mentioning it or them before. Had entertained the idea of taking a small one to Montana, but was concerned about people and Grizzly bears breaking into it when I wasn't in camp. There isn't any cell phone service.

I have a donkey, but at his age, I don't think he'd do less complaining than me about hauling that cookware! :mocking:

The stuff some folks use camping amazes me sometimes. My average cooking tripod to hold a dutch oven over a fire weighs about 12-15 lbs. I've had customers custom design tripods they wanted me to make that weighed 20+! There's no need to build one out of 1" bar unless you want to hang a whole deer from it!


I was a backpacker. My camp cookware was one small aluminum pot, and the only utensil was titanium. Not sure if I'm still up for that these days.

That's our 1959 Lil Loafer. They tell me the bears use big can openers to get in and feed on campers.:eek::D:confused:

:lol: IT"S all about the gravy. Sometimes I could leave the meat, gravy on bread and potatoes is where it's at.
The Dutch Oven does exceptional well making gravy.

Cast iron cookware is the bomb. I have a couple of old Griswold skillets, and a couple newer lodge cast iron pieces. They are all great and don't expect to replace any of them in my lifetime.

...and no, I don't collect the Griswold stuff to look at, I use it. :lol:
