There are plenty of "make do" items to keep your camp kitchen operable. A very versatile camp pot is a wok and some of the best places to find one are the thrift stores. It does take up a lot of room but it usually is rather light weight compared to a skillet and can handle the jobs of a skillet and a boiler. Also, since the bottom is more or less round, your balancing act of trying to keep the pot level is no longer as crucial since your oil or liquid is going to wind up in the bottom of the pan anyway. Three rocks with a small fire between them and you can make an "all in one pot meal" work out very well.

I almost picked up a second wok to use as you described but it had wooden handles that I would want to change. Other than that I agree...good suggestion. I am going to take mine out next time and try some variations on themes...scrambled eggs, scones, quick soups and stews, even baking (turn lid upside down, put small dough balls around base, cover lid with coals...problem is...my lid is lightweight aluminum....would have to find large, flat lid or tray to cover over top...worthy of experimentation...thanks for idea...

I love this suggestion! I am going to go out and find me a wok! I can see all the uses of it and the ease by which it can stablize over a fire. Good comments, thanks!
