Lodge has long been considered the best. For some time, it was the only US manufacturer. I have never heard of Lewis and Clark

Camp Chef makes Lewis & Clark commemorative cast iron skillets and Dutch ovens. Is that what you have? If so, Camp Chef's products are pretty good. I have several of their cast iron pieces and have been happy with them. However, Lodge is still my first choice between the two. Lodge costs a little more but the quality is better, IMO.

You'll find everyone has their own opinion on the best way to care for cast iron. For seasoning, I prefer to use melted Crisco shortening at 425-450 degrees. I've found I get better results using a higher temperature than the generally recommended 350 degrees. Just play around and figure out what works best for you.

Enjoy your cast iron!

About a year or two ago Lodge did have a Lewis & Clark Dutch oven along with their boy scout dutch oven. I have 2 dutch ovens but never got the camp ovens because they were too heavy to carry by myself.
