Funny you should start this thread.
I was just discussing cast iron cookware with a friend last night
and he suggested I look at Lodge.
Lodge is good stuff. I used to work at a Hardware store that sold carried a line of Lodge products. NEVER had a return.
I have a dutch oven and a large skillet, both Lodge, They are excellent - I recommend them to anyone. Bachchoy - the little camp grill looks interesting. Does it work well for you? The best place to buy Lodge stuff in my neck of the woods is Acadamy.
I'll be looking into the enamel stuff...
Hopefully it's cheaper than Le Creuset...
I know they're worth it, but I can't get myself to spent that money on a pot...
I need a big "oven safe" dutch oven...
I LOVE cast iron. I have a number of lodge pieces, and one of my two most used pans is a lodge piece, but most of my stuff is older WagnerWare, Grizwold, as well as many other more esoteric and some not so esoteric brands. I forget how many pieces I have but it is at least three or four dozen.
The camp grill is cool! Just a little charcoal and it is all set to go!
I took some pics last night. I counted more than 50 pieces of cast iron cookware, and not all are pictured in these photos. In these first two of photos you will also see a series of tin-ware pans hanging from the wall. (Behind the cast ironware rack) The largest of these tinware pans is more than 2 feet in diameter.
Here is my other main ironware rack:
some other stuff
Looking on top of my cabinets and pantry:
A couple of the more obscure pans:
That is a really nice collection ya got there.
The cabin/kitchen is pretty nice too!
I really like that enameled Dutch oven, but $170, ouch
Does your wood stove work and do you use it?
I agree it is a nice set up you have and I know you are proud.
Quite a collection there Cali-Glock. I really like the ironware racks you got. I will have to look into one of those for my cast iron pans.
Yes it works; yes I use it, but not frequently enough. When I first moved in, I refused to cook on anything but the wood stove. I moved in a couple of days before Thanksgiving - I cooked the entire Thanksgiving meal using the wood stove only. I refused to use the propane stove. I had to be the "mountain man"! The following summer however the novelty wore off (who wants to heat up their kitchen in the summer?) and I abandoned my wood stove only policy and discovered how well the 1940s era propane stove worked!
I now only cook on the wood stove occasionally - my wife is afraid to cook on it. Typical use will be to cook a big breakfast for guests during the winter, or sometimes I will simply fire it up to help heat up the room. Each winter I threaten to turn off the propane to the propane stove so my wife will be forced to use the wood cookstove. ;f
Thanks - It is silly how much I love my cast iron ware. I had almost no normal cookware and what I had was cheap. When I got married we purchased a great set of Farberware Millennium cookware, and I was surprised how much I like cooking with it. But still my first love is cast iron. I have promised my sister in-law that if she will come visit us she can have her pick of any of my pieces of cast iron ware. Talk about a hog I am worried about what piece she will pick when she does finally come visit us.
Pitty Pat's Porch- boy, the memories of the mid-seventies!
