Cast Iron Cookware
« on: October 18, 2017, 08:10:56 PM »
Hi All,

Curious to know if anyone has cooled on their stove in their hot tent with cast iron? I'm wondering if it would be hot enough on top of the stove to cook with cast iron, without the tent being 30+ degrees Celsius.

Never have, but it comes down to leaving it on the stove long enough to get hot enough to cook. The fact it is cast iron, as opposed to aluminum or steel, really doesn't matter---it will eventually reach the same temperature, may just take a little longer to get there. My biggest concern would be the weight if you are hauling it on a sled.

We did a lot, cast iron dutch oven, and didn't have any problems, we switch to a tin frying pan and a lid, it is just lighter and more versatile for us, but cast iron work just fine!
