    Good Evening,


    A while back there was thread regarding cookware. I'm trying to prepare a few items for cooking outdoors. Looking for your suggestions for durable quality cookware. Think primitive, or survival needs. Any suggestions ??

    Durability... if weight is not a primary consideration, then it would have to be cast iron with multiple size skillets and a giant dutch oven. If weight is a consideration, than I would go with one 8" cast iron skillet and a 5 qt or so dutch oven.

    Cast iron is the best way to go, 12"&8" skillets,& a 14" dutch oven will just about cover it except for one of those blue spotted porcelicn(?) coffee pots.

    Bass Pro sells --- Lodge cast iron! The best there is. Exception----Cabelas has the giant Stainless Steel coffee pots. If you really want to get primitive take a look at "Track of the Wolf" all the blackpowder rendevous guys buy from them and those guys like to think they are "older than dirt" LOL

    Cast iron skillets and dutch ovens are the only way to go but they are heavy. Nothing beats fried chicken in cast iron outdoors with cold beer

    Another vote for cast iron for the most part. I've subsistence camped in many states. Add a few cheap quick boil pots for cleaning, washing and simple hot water needs but go with 3 sizes of skillets (depending on group size) and a dutch oven with lid. You'll be happy you went cast iron!!
