Can't tell you the difference.

With my new cast stuff, left it on a low heat for a long time until the protective oils had burned off.

After cooling, rub with cooking oil to stop rust. I use my cast skillet every couple of days, so i treat it like a BBQ plate.......eg.........leave oily until ready to use, then clean when hot.

Cheers

Cast iron pots are used for cooking, dutch ovens when I eat way to many cashews, drink a lot of home brew and then hop in the tent/sleeping bag with the missus.

Well Jnr, don't know about Dutch Ovens but a good Aussie Camp Oven is great. You know, the ones with a big lip around the lid so you can put hot coals on the top.

Mate with one (or two) of those and a hot plate for the camp fire or gas stove and even a pot or two, you can just about cook anything you want.

A roast dinner done in a camp oven on the camp fire is like wow!

Don't mind living rough in fact I prefer it, but you can still be comfortable and eat very well.

and I say: A rost dinner done in a Cobb beats the above every time. wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow mmmmmmmmmm.

camp fires are great to sit around to enjoy a brew, have a yarn and warm one's cockles (whatever they are?) but for cooking, nah, too much messing about with a good fire.
