Usually when using cast iron at a campsite cook a whole pound of bacon, remove bacon and cook eggs in all that bacon grease. That along with some percolated camp coffee.

Yes, it does, assuming correct use of grammar. I am not familiar with your posts, so I don't know if you consider punctuation optional. I wondered if you were concerned about the amount of egg left on your CI skillet.

Maybe I'm a germophobe but that kind of made me shudder.
My dad had a cast iron small 3 legged pot sitting on the shop stove that he used for heating hide glue. I've seen CI used for pet dishes, bought them from barns. I always strip new/old CI and reseason.

I figured that the heat would kill what germs were on the pan. I'm from Tucson which is filled with retirees. This pan was probably some old ladies pride and joy and when she died her kids just shipped it off to Goodwill. I'm glad that I didn't strip the seasoning that she spent 70 years acquiring.

To the wife that says everything sticks to cast iron; my cast iron is the most stick-free cookwear in my kitchen. It is also the most durable. The only thing I use a teflon gridlle for is when I'm making pancakes, or crepe's. But for almost everything else, including tomato sauces, a well-seasoned cast iron pan rules in my kitchen.

The only reason I use the teflon griddle is because it distributes the heat more evenly across the pan surface. I have a gas stove, and the CI has hot spots were the flame touches the pan metal. This gives me uneven cooking temps, which makes it difficult to make really great pancakes. And if you know me, you know that I take great pride in my pancakes.
