Princess Auto sells a cast iron "soup bowl" that has a handle and a pour spout. That might fit the bill.

Found a stainless ladle at princess auto. I'll have to bend it a bit to form a spout. So I am thinking use the lee pot to melt, drop into the ladle , reheat on a camp stove, then pour

I do have an old school cast iron melting pot but it probably holds 5-10 pounds but I am not sure how I would pour with any control
