Looks great, warm mornings?  I'm closing windows at night to keep it decent inside, otherwise it will be in the upper 60's inside by 6.

It is ranging from 101 to 109 this week so cooking is definitely outdoors and early.  Not likely to cool off much below 80 at night so sandwiches for dinner.

I have several sizes of the sheet metal frying pans.  Small (for the KampKook), medium (shown) and a large 10 inch.  Cared for correctly, they will build a seasoning similar to Cast iron but not as durable.  They are nice to carry and won’t break if you drop them but nothing beats cast iron for cooking in my opinion.   I am pretty klutzy so I mainly use these.  The Griswold flat skillet is cast iron of course.  The other cook gear I look for is enamel ware which has a nice surface for cleaning.  It is prone to chip.  Just seems right to me to use cookware period to the stove I am using.

I have a bunch of those skillets, pick them up for a dollar or so, but not sure how to clean or season them.  I'm pretty sure a few of them have been painted black.

my opinion  but I generally take them down to shiny steel and start over not knowing what was in them before. Use a wire brush on a drill.  A rough surface gives a place for the seasoning to grab.  Then a matter of smoking any oil.  Everyone has their favorites but carbon is carbon.

Now that's a great breakfast, Marty! Again, I like the old timey stuff.  Your coffee pot sure beats my coffee made in an old sock, boiled in a coffee can.

Depends on how clean the sock is your using. May be good.

It's actually a joke I've made several times here, when people talk about the fancy schmancy ways they prepare coffee while camping, with French presses and all.
But to each his or her own, I say.  Truth be told, I have a Revere stainless percolator. 😁

A sock is generally too open of a weave for most grinds of coffee. I've tried that. I have had good luck with an old fashioned cloth tobacco bag and that was part of my camping kit for many years. A square piece of similar similar gotten cloth like a handkerchief works equally well if tied with a string.

Know what you mean. I actually just boil grounds in the pot. When people ask if you get grounds in the bottom of the cup I reply yes but don’t drink the last bit and you are ok.  It is a personal preference for sure.

1. Oh, buddy, you missed the joke, RT!
2. I actually have done what Marty does, just throw the grounds in the pot. 
And I have routinely come home from work evenings to find about half a cup of coffee left in the pot, so I just drink it, cold and black.

Cool write up Marty!

For the "cowboy coffee", you guys know the trick of tossing a splash of cold water in right off the boil?  that makes the grounds drop to the bottom, and if you keep from stirring it up, you get less, if any grounds in the cup.

As you progress from pot to pot,  you just add more water and a spoonful or two of new grounds.  You shouldn’t have to start fresh the whole week.

Wouldn't the bottom third be grounds at the end of the week?

Nice set up and great way to enjoy breakfast!

I remember my wife's grandmother would boil the grounds for coffee, and then whisk an egg white in the pot to "catch," all the grounds and settle to the bottom.  She also added a pinch of salt to offset the burnt taste.
I really like GOOD drip coffee, not scorched, so I usually take my Stanley Aladdin thermos, that has a cone filter attachment, and pour hot water a little below boiling over the grounds until the thermos is full.  Stays hot all day, and tastes great.  Similar to a Chemex system, but in a vacuum bottle.

It is fun to watch/hear/smell a percolator going in camp, but for me the taste is more important.

My wife and daughters have become fond of pour over coffee when there is only two of the three here; if all three it's percolator time.

Cold water works great.  I get the water boiling and then turn off the heat and add the grounds. Let them steep for a few minutes and then stir and repeat. Then just run a little cold water from a faucet straight down the spout. Then give it a minute or two to settle and pour it slow and you're good. The absolute best way to make coffee in my opinion.
