    We are "off the grid" 3 months a year. Soon to be 6. Inevitably the cast iron cooking just seems the way. Here's a few pics of "semi-permanent" camp.

    edit. Scroll down further for more pics.

    Short stack.

    Nicely done! There are plenty of recipe books on cast iron cooking with heat beads, but it's nice to see what the finished product looks like at the end of the process. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for the pics. We will have a primitive campout this April down on the farm. Nothing like Dutch Oven cooking to whet an appetite.

    We eat better in camp than at home.

    I'm torn between the 'Hanzo Hawaiian Cooking show' and the 'Madman Mixture of outdoor cooking'

    I get hungry looking at both.

    On an odd note... I went to a cast iron cooking competition and these guys made full 3 course meals with 10 to 15 bricks. Pretty amazing.

    You can cook anything outside that you can cook inside. We have a 2 burner oven and two one burner ovens. One is a Coleman colapsible. We have use the rigid ones several times and have added a thermostat to the older one.

    I have been using a pie iron lately and really like it. You can make anything from breakfast to dessert.

    I have several. As Boy Scouts, we would use pie filling between bread slices. It made a nice "pie".
    In fact, many things went between bread slices in those things. Most of them came out tasty.

    Easy To Make Pie Iron Recipes
    Have been using the Rome pie irons for years, going back to boy scouts. You can use them in a campfire using the coals ( not direct flame), on a little stove like a MSR whisperlite or a one burner propane, on a bbq grill using charcoals. They are very versatile. I like to spread soften cream cheese on one piece of bread and pineapple preserves on the other slice, sprinkler a little sweeten shredded coconut, makes a really great snack. Just make sure you grease both sides well or it can be a mess.

    I was looking to make popovers for brunch and found a pan called a 'gem pan' I had never heard of it.

    Rats I can't find the camp stove link broker posted. I did some reading on that camp stove and with a longer pipe you can use in a tent. It was impressive
