Although I don't use them, there are some cast aluminum DO's out there that a lot of folks swear by them. They are much, much lighter and easier to handle. I know that many river outfitters use them because they are light in weight.

Cast aluminum is a bit lighter but does cook a little differently. They are a bit harder to get the heat right in cooler weather because they conduct heat away faster than iron.

Each to his own, but I won't be wooed away from my cast iron.

Me neither. Too many Boy Scout campouts with fantastic Dutch oven food to go with other than cast iron. Still drooling over memories of peach cobbler from the 60's campouts in Florida.

I can't imagine having loaded a cast iron DO to my pack frame, but the aluminum was not questioned as a Scout lo these forty years ago and more.

I think I'd like to have both.

We used DO for 'car camping' where we did not have to carry the big iron beasts we had. Our Scoutmaster had a secret family recipe for peach cobbler that was fantastic. Unfortunately the secret was lost when he died young from a heart attack. I've come close to duplicating it but not exact yet.

A very important thing to remember with aluminum is that without food inside it can melt. It starts to get plastic and unstable at around 700 degrees f, easily achieved with charcoal if no load is in the oven. Baking in a pie pan elevated off the bottom of the DO is not recommended.
