Default Hanging on Drywall?


I'm not sure whether or not this is the appropriate forum section for the following question...

I've got several pieces that I use on a regular basis, and I'd like to them hang on a wall for easy access (and because they'll look cool). I may have pulled the trigger too soon and purchased hand forged skillet hooks before considering how to fasten them to drywall.

I've found large-ish drywall anchors and blacksmith lag screws that will work - but does anybody have experience mounting cast iron on drywall? Specifically, will the weight of the skillets pull everything out of the wall?

The typical solution is to mount a ledger board(s) screwed into the wall studs, then the appropriate hanging hooks into that.
