Are the Camp Chef products made domestically?

How do they compare with the Lodge products.

Camp Chef are pretty decent quality for being an imported product.

Thanks. I guess I'll definitely be sticking with Lodge.

Buying American can be a real challenge these days! The other option is to start watching e-bay for some of the older ovens that occasionally show up there. Unfortunately that can be a pricey way to go.

Dean posted this link over on the TTT&T list, so I took the liberty of posting it over here as well.

I like those big ol' two-handled fry pans.

The Texaloy 14" DO is $20.00 cheaper than the Lodge and 1/4" deeper.

I had seen the Texaloy posted, and I will keep them in mind. A 12"er is up next on my list though.

Half of my DOs are Camp Chefs. My first was a gift, I bought 2 more since then.

They work fine for me and they are cheaper than Lodge. Thumbs Up

my favorite oven is a 10" camp chef. it seems to take a seasoning better than my lodge and the seasoning last longer. maybe cause its a little rougher finish.

I don't think the Texaloy oven is available anymore. They make some other items, but the oven is toast for the time being Thumbs Down

Wolfy, I emailed the president of Texaloy and he said they are renovating the section of the foundry that makes the cast iron cookware. He said they will be making it again when they are done and he would send me an email. I'll make a post here when he does. He did also say that they will be making improvements to the casting quality with the changes they are making.

Thanks for the update on Texaloy. I'd hate for us to lose another US foundry. Now if we could just convince them to cast up some spider skillets for us. Thumbs Up
