Camp Chef's Web Presence Continues to Grow

Posted by Rick Mansfield

Earlier in the summer, we ran a post titled "Lodge Manufacturing Expands Web Presence with YouTube and Twitter." Well, in the interest of equal time, we're including this post to make mention of all the ways Camp Chef communicates with its customers via the Internet.

If you haven't discovered it already, you must check out the Camp Chef website. There you will find listings of all the Camp Chef products--not only cast iron, but also lots of other grills, cooking appliances and accessories--as well as informative articles about subjects such as camping, hunting, tailgating, and more. There's so much to explore, you will want to spend a good bit of time on the Camp Chef site.

One of the newest additions to the Camp Chef is their extensive collection of videos. Videos are categorized by subject: Products, Media/Press, Recipes, How to, and Frequently Asked questions. There's lots to explore here as well, and lots of examples for using cast iron in creative ways. If you find something you really like, Camp Chef offers embed codes so that you can add the video to your own website. Camp Chef videos can also be found on YouTube.

Camp Chef has a great blog. I know because I'm a regular reader. Not only do they highlight new products, they also feature mouth-watering recipes that make me want to immediately get out my dutch oven and start a campfire. You'll also find descriptions of Camp Chef events and the occasional cartoon.

As of this writing, Camp Chef has over 800 fans on it's FaceBook page. This is a great place to hold conversations with other Camp Chef fans as well as post your own photos using Camp Chef products.

If you use Twitter, be sure to follow Camp Chef! On average, Camp Chef "tweets" once every day or two. Sometimes it's something overheard around the campfire, sometimes it's announcements about events or new products. They are also very good about responding back if you have a question for them.

You may or may not be aware that Camp Chef has a sister company, Santé. The company is described on the website as a "manufacturer of high-end cooking equipment for the ultimate home kitchen." In many ways, you can think of Camp Chef for use at the campground and Santé for use in the kitchen; however, the reality is that there's a lot of overlap as anyone who regularly uses cast iron knows. I own a couple of Santé's cast iron loaf pans and have found them to be well made and perfect for making homemade bread.

There's also a Santé blog you'll want to check out for lots of recipes and more.

So check out Camp Chef as well as Santé. They've got a great selection of cast iron cookware and a whole lot more.
