Thanks so much

Welcome to DC SuperScouter...
I've never heard of the stainless or aluminum ones. Maybe a google search will turn up something. The aluminum sounds interesting depending on what guage it is.. It might alot lighter...

Have you searched ebay? You pretty much can find anything there...you may have to modify your search on the site and break it down to certain trigger words. Seems to me I do recall seeing those things as a little girl. If you find one can you please post a pic.

I always bring along my cast iron dutch ovens if I'm driving to the site. It always seems that camping trips center around the camp cook. I guess food tastes better cooked on a fire. Does any one here use a chuckbox to keep all their kitchen and cooking supplies together? I couldn't funtion without mine.

I bring my Coleman stove, but for actual CAMPFIRE cooking, I use tin foil, and as was suggested earlier, throw away pans like aluminum pie plates from the dollar store. I also have a grate that has clips on it that you can make toast in, burgers, fish, ANYTHING, really. You just place what you are cooking in it, close and attach the clips. I also will sometimes bring extendible weiner forks. The are telescopic and help with keeping your eyebrows intact because they keep you at a safe distance from the fire. I try to minimize what I bring on my canoe trips because, of course, you carry everything you pack with you, so I pick and choose my meals and essentials before a canoe trip.

I find a good idea is to pre-mix scrambled eggs and put them in a polycarbonate water bottle. On my last canoe trip I pre-made an omelette, put it in the bottle and stuck it in the cooler. It was much easier than bringing whole eggs and risking them all breaking.

For camp cooking, Aluminum foil--heavy weight and disposable aluminum pans. Quite often I cook in the pans, double thick and set them right on the coals. Wrapped tightly with foil, you can get some seriously great meal...

I bring a coat-hanger and no food that can't be stuck on the end of it and hung over a fire.

I reckon I will see if I can take some photos of our cooking set up at our Rendezvous which will be at the end of Oct.
Been cooking over the campfire for nigh on to twenty years. It is mighty hard to beat.
Specially bacon cooking, first thing in the morning.
