That sounds like a great idea. Since I do nearly all of the outdoor cooking when we go camping, I'd given some thought to one of the Lodge griddles and I think you have me convinced to get one. Since the days of camping out of the back of an open pickup I have carried and used one of the old style pump up Coleman two burner white-gas stoves and three of the cast iron skillets that were passed down through the family from my great-great grandmother for the outdoor cooking. Fortunately my mother tought me how to use and clean them, even for baking cornbread. If you don't mind another "cleaning" suggestion I learned for cast iron and have used for years on my skillets. Don't use water, not even to rinse. First, scrape down slick side of grill or bottom of a skillet with steel spatula or scraper, and gridddle side with a mechanics wire or bbq grill brush while still very warm. Pour on a little fresh veggie oil and then scrub with a veggie oil saturated, light to medium grade steel wool. Wipe off excess oil and strands of steel wool with paper towels. Most times I will then reheat item and wipe down again with fresh vegie oil.

Searing on back slower cooking on front. Works great!
Thanks. I think we will look into duplicating your set e really don't want to use the inside gas stove unless we absolutely have to. While grilling the mess, smoke, heat, all remain outside. Sounds like its the way to go.

Yeah, we've hardly every used the inside stove. Maybe once or twice for a boiled something or another. Microwave might get used once in a while for reheating something or the convection feature for heating up frozen tater tots or something alon that lines.

Someone else mentioned the old style coleman with white gas and the pump. We've got one of those that's probably 30 years old. We brought the last time and did one thing on the griddle with it. Worked almost as well as the camp chef 2, just not as much heat.

I really like the sound of the griddle, we only cook with cast iron. Will talk with DW, who is a great chief. PS now I am hungry.
