I had to get in on the action
This is a truly tasty thread. I think I'll just stare at these pictures of culinary delights until my hunger goes away.
I do a lot of Dutch oven cooking and baking, but my heat source isn't a conventional oven and my kitchen is a wall tent.
and I use coals instead of electricity which I'm ~ 35 miles away from
for typically 12 guys, I bake entrees like this lasagna
breads, rolls and loaves (I bake 4 loaves of bread every day for weeks)
and desserts - cakes, pies, etc
My kitchen that gets packed 23 miles from the trailhead into a wilderness area on mules
The guys really enjoy the fresh bread every day
even though our mess tent isn't all that fancy
This thread was actually showing you can still use cast iron at home. Quite a few of us use camp ovens in the field. How I cut my teeth Dutch oven cooking was in a packed in elk camp as a young boy. Been doing it ever since.
Actually, I started using cast iron at home just this last year with a dutch camp oven. It worked so dang well camping, I started using it in my kitchen. Then I started buying more. Now I've got more cast iron than I do reels.
It's my 'go to' cookware. Not that I don't love my new pressure cooker.)
Need any more? I'm liquidating the last of my collecting days. Only have about another 30 pieces to get rid of.
I should add my family always used cast iron in the house. Just my first experience cooking was in camp with Grandpa and Dad.
I could use some more cast iron! A camp stove/dutch oven is sorely needed. I have an enamel coated dutch oven that I got as a gift, but I want a sooty blackish brown masterpiece.
Most I'm selling are pans. I'm keeping all my Dutch ovens/camp ovens. Only Dutch oven I plan on selling won't be cheap. It's an old Griswold/Wagner camp oven.
I've got a good basic inventory, I think. My dutch oven is a 10" camp oven, but I'd like to get a 12 inch model (not the camp oven) for around the kitchen. Now if ONLY they would make a cast iron pressure cooker.............
I'm a prostaff for Camp Chef. I have a couple Dutch ovens.
I don't think they ever made a cast iron pressure cooker Maybe a very old one maybe. But have seen old cast aluminum ones.
Are you saying you have a couple of EXTRA dutch ovens? $?
LOL. No. I use all I have and rarely turn any over. Have one antique camp oven and a bunch of misc skillets.
I have a 12" skillet that was my grandpa's that I use for everything. I love that thing. I could use another depending on the price.
Most will be smaller pans, under 10". Alot of egg skillets. Only one dutch oven, and it won't be cheap. But most skillets will be under $20 probably.
Name a price on your biggest skillet and I'll take it.
