What is a dog iron that would be used in cooking?

"Most of the negroes cooked in the cabins. They mostly used dog irons and skillets, but when they went to b’ile anything, they used tin buckets.”

Let me google that for you:

In the U.S. Congressional KKK testimony of Ms. Betsy Westbrook whose Radical Republican husband was murdered in Alabama, her husband attempted to defend his home and family with just such an object.
I had, those are used to support firewood, not cooking it says, theirs several other things that have been referred to as dog irons as well, but haven't seen then used in reference to cooking either....
