WHAT are you cooking on?

  Jerry and I have had a couple sets of camp cookware over the years.

When we first got back into camping, we were given a set of aluminum camp cooking set (since it was free, I really couldn't be too picky).

It was what it was.

I had to be careful when cooking, because it would burn food very quickly. The only good thing about this set was that it was very light weight, and the whole set nested.

As time went buy, we started adding some cast iron pieces to our camping cook set.

Cooking on cast iron is so much better than the aluminum set. And, the cast iron can be very versatile.
 I use mine not only on the stove, but in the oven, and you can also cook right over the campfire with the cast iron.

About the only drawback to cooking with cast iron is the weight.

Those darn skillets and Dutch ovens can get kinda heavy, especially when you have a pot full of stew.
