Hey Folks,


not sure how many still take traditional cast iron cookware on trips.
i recently re-seasoned mine using a science base method from a site by Sheryl Canter.if any others are interested id highly recommend it.

Blinker I Printed out her method a couple years ago, but have tried it.

I was looking for a point in the comments and was amazed at how many there were now, especially the exchange with Kevin N, the self proclaimed "chemistry specialist" around July '12, that is hilarious.

I love cast iron for cooking, and would gladly use it if someone else brought it along. :)

For me, it just is not worth the weight when there are other products that will work, plus it does not pack so great.

We take it on the Allagash, but there is only 1 or 2 carries depending on the start point.

Modern aluminium dutch ovens are much lighter and work almost as well as iron. I use my 10 in. alumininum model on canoe trips often. It weights under 5 lbs. and is managable. Mine came from MEC for -70 dollars - ten years ago. Chaltrek here sells them for 50 dollars.

Despite the price, I love my dutch oven. Even use it in my back yard and on the beach with charcoal.

One rainy day in camp i did baked beans. Soaked them overnight, cooked the next day. Placed (camp fire) coals on top and under, set the oven on stones to make up for the lack of legs. Beans cooked themselves.

Yummy
