Growing up my mom and my grandma both cooked with cast iron. As I am getting older I am gravitating back towards cooking with cast iron more often! Now I have an enameled one that I use in the oven in the house, but I have an old school black cast iron one the old lady got for $5 that gets used on the smoker and fire pits when we camp!

How To Season Cast Iron
It’s important to know how to care for your cast iron as well as how to reason it. I store mine with extra oil rubbed in to keep it in better condition. If you aren’t sure how to season your cast iron check out my guide -> here.
What Is A Dutch Oven?
A dutch oven is similar to a deep pot with a lid. They are used most often to cook on an open fire or on a grill. Cast Iron Dutch ovens can be used to bake bread, puddings, casseroles, stews, and soup. Sometimes they have legs to keep them over the fire a bit more or coal Some dutch ovens come with a flat lid to pack on more coal, or they make a tight seal so you can pack coal around it if needed.
