    • The aluminum skillet on the Trail Chef Cook kit was as good as any relatively thin aluminum skillet.  Taught to cook on coals, it worked fine.  BSA had them made thinner and thinner towards the end, so they were less good. The individual "mess kit" was too thin for all but the most careful user,  but no worse for cooking than the GI steel mess kit.  i replaced my BSA mess kit with a GI mess kit after the first Scout campout. The mess kit pot once had a detente that locked the bail, preventing spilling.  As competence declined at BSA, the detente went away, and it was Spill City.
    • The coating of burned-on grease used to be called "seasoning."  Somewhat non-stick.  😁
    • "an error in judgment"  That's buying a Fiat.    ⬇️
    • Two places: on the right pocket of the tan shirt, or on the back of the merit badge sash.
    • Only very few patches should go above the BSA name.  Directly above it should be any translator strips, above that name plates, and then above that Jambo patches are about the only thing that should be worn.  Some units, including ours, that are chartered by the American Legion will wear a Legion patch.  I have seen some councils adopt the practice of putting the NYLT patch there, though that is technically not correct.  As with anything, I wouldn't worry extensively about "the uniform police"- I tend to say looking neat and tidy is the most important thing when it comes to uniform.
