Where Great Intelligence Goes To Be Insulted

Proper Cookware

You can measure a man’s intelligence by the extent to which he agrees with you. And it’s official, the senior stubfarttery have officially committed their support in favour of cast iron for camp cook chores. This is backed up by the peerless camp cooks on OyTube - check out The Men With The Pot. The decompression factor alone is worth your time. They could put the fear of God Almighty into Mack The Knife too! I wish I could sling a blade like they do! (Hell… I wish I could sharpen a blade like they do…)



Hmmmmmm. What’s this? Enameled metal? The stubfarts complain about thin metal cooking pots and I agree… you’re just asking to burn your grub with it. But look here… this looks like prime pottage and stewage! The Men With The Pot often cook in a similar cast iron pot, and dig coals and embers out of the fire and place them on top of the lid to get even heat. I dunno if enameled tin could take that…? Any of you have any experience with it?

  1. Those enameled cast-iron roasting pans are designed for a regular oven. They are nice(and expensive) but enamel also chips and stains. If you want to use cast iron on your campfire you want the old-fashion ones with lid that has a lip on top, to hold the coals on top. Kent Rollins has perfect examples on his you tube channel. That's the kind of cast-iron you want for that purpose. The big dutch-ovens without the legs and don't have a lipped-lids are for either wood-burning or regular cook-stoves. Used plenty of cast-iron, some of it inherited from grandparents, all of it was designed for cook-stoves, none of it was for camp-fires.

    1. Yeah I think they call that a dutch oven. We have a little one around here some place but I think I need a bigger one...

    2. The way I learned it, if it is round it is a dutch oven and the oblong ones roasting pans. Maybe the cookie/biscuit debate.

  3. If you want true rustic food porn check out the AlmazanKitchen channel. Those two guys with a pot are just a cheap knock off. They are even trying to copy the balkan cleaver thing.

    1. I am still capable of sporadic and random acts of youth, M!

      I just checked out that kraut cook you recommended and he cooked a bronto steak on a rock in the middle of the campfire. While he's cooking he pulls out a beer and nocks the lid off with the spine of his cleaver.... and as soon as I saw that I subscribed.

      Thumbs up!!!

    3. BTW, those two fags from AlmazanKitchen are from somewhere in the Balkans so that makes them more like Squatting Slavs than Krauts.
