If we don't cook on it we can always have a unique planter.

Someplace I have a picture of my daughter, grandson and self sitting under the Colman Max pop up awning with other Coleman gear going back three generations. From my parents an old red Coleman lantern, the stove and green metal cooler I purchased, and the canopy purchased in my grandsons time.

I now use a newer (only 15 years old) Coleman stove but someplace I have an ancient one that like that hibachi was built of really solid metal back in the day. I swear thing was heavy enough you could use the metal to weld a patch on a cracked trailer frame. One of the kids has it now. Still works last I heard.

We used to have one something like that but the sides folded up to make a "chimney" for lighting and to also make it easier/cleaner to transport. It was a darn good BBQ for camping.

bob, your prayers are answered. This Lodge cast-iron grill is anything but thin metal. I'll bet it weighs at least 25 lbs. Made in TN. Very high ratings too. I've been tempted... Anyone use these?

Thanks will. I have quite a bit of cast iron cookware. Nothing beats it, IMO.

You wouldn't want to cook breakfast with it, if you were breaking camp and in a hurry, but other than that, it looks like a winner.

P.S. Can't wait to go back to WY for another visit. My wife and I love your state!

Cast Iron Cooking aka Pie Irons.

Steak... I like to cook mine is double pie iron. Heat source doesn't matter much.

Breakfast... Nothing like home made English Muffin, egg, ham, and cheese sandwich for breakfast without going to Mcdonalds.

To save space and weight we have been using this Force 10, a gift from a Canadian friend. Anyone seen one of these; Bar-B-Cutie, new in box, looks like 50's or 60's. We have a lot of vintage camping gear that goes with our vintage teardrop.

I donated a lot of camping & fishing stuff (including a canoe) to a local Boy Scout troop and was told by the Scoutmaster that they're not allowed to use liquid fuels for my old Coleman stove and lantern anymore - only propane canisters.......sheesh.

They made that change several years ago. I think it's plain silly. I would much rather use liquid fuel than propane canisters. We had hiked into this small lake room about 2 camp sites. We at one and some young folks came in stayed at the other. We couldn't seem, but could hear noised. All of a sudden there was yelling and screaming. A whishing sound like spinning. They left before we did, so I took a look. There was this green propane cylinder laying in the middle of 10' circle of burned vegetation. Sure glad it was in the spring with the fire danger low or we would have been right at ground zero for forest fire. Apparently the safety shut off valve that's supposed to close when cylinder is removed from an appliance didn't work. Campfire and spewing propane don't mix well.
