Thanks Bob and I have a thought. Perhaps you can get Jay’s wife Maria to put on a seminar on how to “properly” light a campfire. She is a professional and an expert on this subject.....I learned the hard way

John, I don't know the whole story -- and I realize that there are things that I'm just better off not knowing -- but for some reason I'm suddenly even happier that we'll be having Mac the Fire Guy joining us again this year.

And yes, R.J. and Judy are working on plans for a fall event in Ohio Amish country. I suspect he'll be doing some cast iron cooking there, as he did at the event they hosted last year.

dutch oven cooking

For those with Southern exposure there is a group that shows up at Lake Bistineau State Park in Louisana on ( I think) the 3rd Saturday each month but check before you go. They cook in the morning and feed everyone in the park at lunch. They can give anyone thinking about dutch oven cooking some good tips. They encourage campers to come and watch and ask questions. P.S. There is no lake there any more as it has been drained.

We camped at Lake Gunnersville last year and there was a couple guys doing a cast iron demo there. They prepared several meal in a pot things, really great. I remember them saying there was a club down in S AL that met for cook offs and demos on a regular basis. Since then and by attending RJ's demo am starting to get the bug again. Used to do cast iron meals a lot when I worked as a leader in the BSA!

Hello folks. My DW cooks in cast iron everything since we started camping. Lol. I even had to buy a tri pod to use over the fire. I guess this is the "proper "way to cook. I have to say that I have had some great foods from her open fires . everything from breakfast of grits and eggs to meatloaf. All in a cast iron pan . just wish the upkeep was simpler. 😆

various youtube vids and many other web searches are my sources of inspiration.


We feel like it isn't camping if you don't cook outside. Might as well stay home.

Hey,
Linda & I used to collect Griswold cast iron, and used it all the time to cook pot roast and all the fixing. Also used it camping right on the fire or setup bars and hung it over. We didn't know if the groups still cooking with it, we for sure are to far away down here in Florida to enjoy. We are looking forward to seeing the demo in Goshen....

I love cooking on our cast iron pan, who needs teflon... The trick is to keep it cured I think is the term.

Lake Claiborne State Park also does some Dutch Oven cooking classes.
