My cast iron is back in the home kitchen where it belongs. Have lightweight T-Fal Professional non-stick ( America's Test Kitchen rated best ) in the trailer. Can't find the Pro series though. Don't know what replaced it.
Had a cast iron griddle and dumped it. It was convex and the oil just ran off into the gutter. Weighed a ton too. I've not found a replacement I like.

I'm not a hoarder but I do have a serious inventory control problem. I think my oven is in one of our three garages, I haven't seen it for a while. My brother says my epitaph will read,
"Don't buy one, I got one of those around here somewhere if I can find it.

Ha! That's noble of you Bags. Essential job requirement is a cast iron stomach, tho! You'll have to judge the good and the bad! I'll donate the Rolaids.

Greg,
You will have to guide me to that food truck with the poutine next year. Once I have some of that I'll be willing to sample anything.

I would be willing to compete baking in my Spitfire BBQ. I have used it as an oven a fair bit, but only baked brownies in it once, and they turned out great.

Maybe a cooking sampler, I have a Cobb Grill for slow crock pot style meat cooking, http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...rill&FORM=IGRE
a Beer Can steamer for Frogmore Stew http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...oker&FORM=IGRE
and my Coleman oven. The choices are limitless....

I am amazed at the many different cooking devices folks carry. There are literally dozens of options out there, all which will produce good food to eat.

However, just using a stove (well two counting the one inside), a BBQ, and the fire once in a while, I am be able to cook a few lifetimes of different great foods, with lots of variety, on just these devices. Works for me and my KISS style camping.

By hobby I'm a woodworker. I used to say it was a half-dozen hobbies wrapped up in one. There was collecting the books. There was reading the books. Then there was specializing in hand tools. Then there was collecting the antique hand tools. And I suppose there was a bit of actual cabinetry involved. Each of these could have been a full-time hobby in and of itself if I had gone deep.

You could say the same thing about cooking. There are all these fascinating side paths you can take to turn your one primary hobby into a dozen little secondary hobbies. That's how I see all these different styles of camp cooking.

I'm not a cook by hobby, so I'll take Jim's keep-it-simple attitude and run with it. But the wife is; I'm perfectly happy to indulge her and bring along whatever equipment she wants to play with this trip.
