Cast Iron Cooking Club

I just booked a couple of nights at the Wolf Run State Park in Ohio. Iíve learned there is a group of campers that meet there one weekend a month, May thru Oct.
They are a cast iron cooking club that shares information and a meal on Saturday nights. Sound like my kind of people! Anyone hear of this group or others like it?

Sounds like Fun. I for one travel with several heavy pans. Nothing like a 12 inch cast iron skillet on a coleman stove for cooking great food. Also a dutch oven for the fire and couple smaller pans too!

Wish I was closer. I keep a couple hundred pounds of cast iron Cookware in the camper and love to share and learn new tips/recipes.

A couple of years ago a friend gave me a Rachael Ray 1 quart saucepan and told me it would make my life a lot easier over strictly cast iron... and he was RIGHT!! It's the PERFECT size dipping pan for my 5 gallon bucket of reclaimed water I use to flush with!

Fire, grill, stove or oven.. you can't beat cast iron for ease of use and great flavor.

John, tell me more about this. I could get into this, I love cast iron cooking on a "properly" made fire.

We meet starting in the spring, till fall, once a month to camp, and have pot luck dutch oven dinners. We all have different campers, sometimes we just meet in a park, great company, camping and good food.

[QUOTE=Indymule;783889]John, tell me more about this. I could get into this, I love cast iron cooking on a "properly" made fire.

Jay & Maria,

Iím new to this as well but love to do it. The bread in the picture was baked in a cast iron kettle in my oven this morning. I use charcoal briquets to cook with when I do this outside. Iím not certain if I light them ďproperlyĒ or not. I use newspaper. Its that acceptable?

You should join us for this adventure. It is the weekend of May 16. I have site 82 reserved.

John

John, Jay, and others, FROG member R.J. Studley will be doing several seminars on cast iron cooking at the FROG Rally in Goshen this summer. He's done them for the past two years, and they've been extremely popular. He doesn't sell anything, just does it for the love of cooking and sharing the techniques.

Bob,

I attended RJís demonstration last year and it was standing room only! I will certainly go again this year. Isnít he and his wife hosting an Amish trip in Ohio in September? Perhaps he will show us some more of his tips then.

John
