: I use 12 or larger tin Skillets with 3-4' handles for cooking on a fire, no need to burn your hands when cooking with these and they are light
when packing in with horses. I threw all our cast iron skillets out or sold them when we sold the cabin. Sure they twist and bend but so what it is the finished product we want to eat not the grease and fat which we pour off as needed which is easy and don't have to pack gloves to pick the handle up.
