Yes. A tripod is great for campfire cooking. You can cook directly on the grill, but you can also put a frypan and/or coffee pot on the grill over campfire. I use a cast iron frypan, 10" round griddle and coffee pot all at the same time on the tripod grill. Cast iron cookware is the best. It lasts forever. We have some pieces that are over 100 years old in my family.

Absolutely I use it over a fire pit all the time. I have a fire grate that sits just above the fire and is strong enough to hold these pans.

Definitely. Cast iron will hold up to heat better than most modern cookware. And the best part is that there is no bullet-proof layer of plastic separating your food from the cooking surface.
I would think you couldn't do much better than cast iron over a campfire. The pans are preseasoned, a plus, clean up was easy. Just have something to get the soot of the bottom of the pan if your fire is putting off smoke, but it over good hot coals, shouldn't be much of a problem.

Cast iron is good about spreading the heat around. That means it won't as easily get hot spots in small areas and burn what your cooking. I've had great success using cast iron dutch ovens and skillets over coalbeds but you can still burn things. Practise using hardwood and let it burn down to coals before cooking or use charcole. I've never tryed cooking over high flames, other than hot dogs and marsh mellows. But I have made peach cobler, baked chicken with rice and several other dishes in the outdoors using cast iron. Hope this helps.

Absolutely. That's the beauty of cast iron. You can cook with it on your stove or a campfire. I even cook with it on my grill. Just be careful to not get it too hot because it will hold heat better than any other pan...but too much heat will cause your food to get burned. Don't use soap to wash it after use or you will get soapy taste to food cooked afterwards. Don't be afraid to let cooked food build up on the pan. It doesn't need to be washed to original condition after each use.That adds to the seasoning after years of use. I doubt you will use anything else for camping after you get used to it. Happy cooking!

If used on campfire you need a canvas carry bag as it gets black. A lid keeps out ashes. Wait til fire reduced to good coals is best. Support on rocks to level. Beware rocks can shatter with extreme heat. Don't wash with soap or need to re-season metal. Not for pack trips.

Great for outdoor/camping.
You do not need a great deal of heat to for this pan as the whole pan heats up evenly.
Very easy to burn food as the iron becomes very hot with a small amount of heat.

i wouldn't hesitate to use it over a camp fire. be sure to get a lid as it makes it even better.
Cast Iron and camping go hand in hand, it takes very little time to heat up and retains the heat very well. Just remember that it is very heavy before you ad what you are cooking to it.
