I love my cast iron. Even cook with it at home. Nothing better than making fresh fry bread in the skillet. Yum Yum.

I do clean mine with soap and have no issues. But I immediately dry them and then put a fresh coat of olive oil on them. So if I'm doing something wrong, I don't know it. I won't always clean the pan if I've just used them for pancakes or something that I can just wipe out. But otherwise just use a dab of soap and a scrubber and I'm set.

I think I love you. Don't tell my hubby.

I don't even store my CI cookware in the same cabinet as the soap!!! Yes, it took my wife a bit of training to forego the soap and water but she's a quick learner. She's all about anything that she doesn't have to clean!!!!

I enjoyed this thread! We generally don't pre-prepare meals, but we do plan most meals beforehand and pack accordingly. Both DW and I are happiest in the kitchen or out camping, and both of us chip-in, so don't find scratch-cooking a chore. Love using CI - open fire, on the BBQ (I cook bacon or freshly caught fish in the CI pan outside on the BBQ) - have even buried it with hot coals on the beach for slow-cooking (kinda worked). Camping is supposed to be more "fun" than "work", and sometimes we have to remind ourselves to step back from routine and change things up a bit - and if that means eating a bit less-healthy than at home, oh-well!

I agree! I becamed enamored with cast iron when I learned my grandma's skillet was 50 yrs old! She received it as a wedding present and used it beyond that, until she could no longer lift it. I would of loved to acquired that from her. I use skillets, a long griddle, and 7 qt. dutch oven on our trips.

I do too!! Le Creuset, but never thought to bring camping. I worry that I'll get made fun of for bringing a Crockpot camping, let alone a wok!

Um, if you bring a French wok camping, I think you probably should be teased. But I do have a small Le Crueset casserole pan that is perfect for my little oven so I can not talk. I'm usually the one getting teased about my ridiculous Chemex coffee maker....

I actually feel that way about a generator. But I'm starting to feel the need for one of those quiet Hondas....Lord help me!

When you're stir frying your favorites and they're eating hot dogs, I bet they won't be laughing too loud.
