First, you are going to start by lighting some Cowboy Charcoal to make a campfire. Next, you will cook all of your favorite veggies & meat inside the skillet until they are nice and brown. The key to browning food in cast iron is butter. We call for 3 tbsp of butter, but don't be afraid to add more for a larger skillet. Throw some eggs on top and you're in for a great morning!
