It'll cook anything. For frying, braising, or saut¿¿ing, there's no finer (nor more forgiving) pan for a campfire cook. A medium-size skillet (10 inches in diameter, 2 inches deep) will easily boil a quart of soup, sauce, or stew. A deep skillet (3 inches) will deep-fry, poach, or steam pretty much whatever you like. With a pie tin and aluminum foil, it also makes a very serviceable bake oven. Evenly sprinkle some pebbles in the skillet, set the pie tin (filled with cornbread, biscuits, scalloped potatoes, or cookie dough) on top, cover tightly with foil, and place the skillet on hot coals.
