Lodge Deep Camp Dutch Oven, 8 Quart-The workhorse of campfire pots and pans, this Lodge Dutch Oven offers plenty of room for whipping up all sorts of yummy camping recipes. The flanged lid holds hot coals and inverts for use as a griddle. The built in legs allow the oven to sit perfectly over the campfire. This Dutch Oven comes pre-seasoned and improves with age. And speaking of age, Lodge has been making cast iron cookware since 1896, so you know its good.
Helpful dutch oven accessories include a 16″lid lifter and a 4-in-1 Camp Dutch Oven Tool that can serve as a trivet for the lid or holder to make the lid an extra cooking surface. Also, don’t forget some parchment Dutch Oven liners which help with making cooking cleanup a breeze.
Heavy Duty 24″ Folding Campfire Grill– Made from high quality coated steel with sturdy legs, this portable folding camping grill has been carefully designed with space in mind. The griddle/grill combo frees you up to prepare all types of food. The attached carrying handles make it easy to transport.
Coleman Gas Camping Stove–For when a campfire is not an option, I highly recommend this Coleman propane camping stove. Our family has used it on numerous campouts when there have been burn bans in our area. The two burners are great for being able to cook a main and a side dish at the same time. You can lay a griddle pan on top of the burners for breakfast dishes such as pancakes. The wind shield does a good job of protecting the flames on the burners from breezy conditions.
Cast Iron Griddle for Gas Stovetop-This griddle comes lightly seasoned from the factory and is designed to last a lifetime. It offers a good deal of surface area to work with by using either the flat or ridged side.
