Fall may very well be the best time of year for cooking at the campground. The crisp air and cool nights make it perfect for firing up your camp stove or cooking over a live fire. When October and November roll around we love to break out our skillets and Dutch ovens from Lodge Cast Iron and spend time cooking with family and friends in the great outdoors.
If you are a veteran camper you almost certainly own a few pieces from Lodge Cast Iron that you use at home or at the campground. If you are a new camper you should certainly consider getting a few pieces from Lodge to start a camp kitchen of your own.
This week on the RV Atlas podcast (and here on the blog) we are talking about building a starter set of cast iron pieces and great fall recipes from Lodge Cast Iron. Our guest is Kris Stubblefield, who works as a chef for the iconic Tennessee company. Kris appeared on the show several years ago when Lodge debuted its Blacklock Collection.

Great Camping Gear from Lodge Cast Iron
Building your first camp kitchen does not have to break the bank. A few essential items will go a long way. Here are 5 pieces of cookware from Lodge that will work perfectly as a starter set for your next camping adventure.
Chef Kris recommends Lodge’s 12″ skillet as the ultimate starter piece for an outdoor camp kitchen. This skillet is durable, affordable, and has plenty of space for cooking up delicious meals for the whole family.
If you are looking to get the most bang for you buck when starting a camp kitchen then Kris recommends getting Lodge’s budget priced 3.2 Quart Combo Cooker. This set gives you a standard skillet, a deep skillet, and a Dutch oven for one affordable price.
Lodge’s 15” Carbon Steel Dual Handle Pan
Kris considers Lodge’s 15″ Carbon Steel Dual Handle Pan to be the perfect paella pan. This lightweight piece heats up quickly and is perfect for dishes with meat, seafood, or even just veggies and rice.
If you are looking for a more traditional Dutch Oven that is built with camping in mind then Kris recommends Lodge’s 12 inch 6 Quart model. Picture yourself making a cobbler or stew in one of these at the campground on a crisp fall night. Does camping get any better than that?
Lodge Cast Iron Kickoff Grill
Kris also loves Lodge’s Cast Iron Kickoff Grill. Whether you want to grill burgers, dogs, brats, or veggies–the Kickoff Grill has got you covered!
