make it your cast iron skillet.
tortilla pizza on the fire ....mmmm
Dutch Oven--the cowboy classic. You can cook practically anything with it.
DAmn! It's lunchtime here and I'm starvin'. That Tortilla pizza sure looks good.... :
I say Dutch Oven too. The skillet's cool and very versitile, but the cast iron dutch oven will do everything the skillet will, and then some.
Pizza looks tasty
LOL I concede the skillet but in the interest of "keeping the peace" (actually that would be "piece" as in keeping a piece of my anatomy) would bring MY wife instead of YOUR wife....
My trail trailer
My wife hates camping. She says that it's all the same work with none of the amenities. She's a gourmet cook and compensates more than enough in numerous ways /\ to buy an Executive Pardon from future camping trips.
witness large chunks of garlic on pizza above a press would have been a nice addition....Mmmmmmmmmgarlic
the dutch oven is a good idea, the cast iron skillet is fine too, but I prefer this:
all-clad ss nostick, copper or aluminum core, can come in dutch oven or brassier pan,,
then I would need my henkel santuko...having the right tools makes the food taste better, imop
Thats a nice pan for sure but where's the fun in grabbing the handle bare handed and not getting burnt?
I just use the little cup under the air cleaner assembly, after I wash it well .. Then I cook micropasta .. feeds all the folks with stapled stomachs ;p
TY - cook for the HMS Hummingbird
As a cast-iron knight, I think Doug is on it. A Dutch Oven, or "Cowboy Cooker" or whatever can be used to cook almost anything. Plus, they need no special care, can be thrown in the trail box, and used as a jack stand if needed. You can use metal cooking utensils and don't need to worry about scratching the bottom. I saw a pic once of an old Griswold Dutch Oven, whose top was a fitted/flanged rim Skillit. I would love to have one, but given the price of Griswold cast iron on ebay, I'd need to sell one of the Cruisers!
The only downside of the Camp Oven (meaning it has it's own feet and a flanged lid), is that it weighs 35 pounds or so, so it's a wagon only item. I have 2 new recipes we'll be sampling on the upcoming Coyote Flats trip.
I would love to have 3pits pan for my home kitchen, but I don't think that copper bottom would hold up over the campfire.
As far as the one utensil--I like the cast iron too. Cookware, boat anchor, wash basin...
Dutch Oven, nothing like it
Maybe we should start a Dutch Oven recipe thread??? Any interest
They do make some really nice AL dutch ovens..
(I prefer cast but for the weight consious..)
Andrew, 35 pounds makes something a "wagon-only" item? Hmmm, my SWB handles a whole lot of gear and you can pack a lot of stuff inside the dutch oven. I'm no backpacker so it's of little concern to me whether an item weighs 4 pounds or 35 pounds--so long as it fits in the cruiser or the 416 trailer.
Cast iron dutch oven--the only way to go.
For those hardy external frame backers ... oldschool
after camping this weekend, I still vote for a nice no stick, I pack everything in plastic tubs, the CI is a pain to clean, and keep oiled, tomato sauces turn acidic eggs stick, bacon burns, ,, I am a foody,, I would prefer to have great food on a camping trip,, and it does not take that much work,, unless it is for 15 ppl,,,,
so what if you need plastic utensils,
the copper was the only pic I could find with out taking it myself,,I have a set of these,, they are nice
pot holders,,, I used my hat to pull a cast iron pan off the grill ,,, you only grab it hot, once, if you are smart,,Ive grabbed it more than once,,,ugh!
