After tax season I plan on getting some cast iron cookware.
It sounds like the best way to go!

My landlady is always hinting that she wants her metal building organized, but she thinks it's fine to just
dump crap in there and a year later let me organize it, nah, I'll pass....BUT I was in there the other day trying to
wrangle the lawn mower past the latest pile that crashed down from somwhere and there was a milk crate
with about 5 various sized skillets and about 10 Fajita cast iron Fajita serving pans. I snugged a couple of those
and secreted them away to the house before the lot turns into a rusty pile of fused metal. hehe.

I thought I was going to pick up a nice blackened cornbread stick pan this week at a home I was appraising. Garage full of stuff going to Goodwill. Sitting right out on top! I was reaching for it, the owner said it was mine if I wanted it!!! Quickly grabed it, and almost threw it threw the ceiling, it was that much weight difference! Damn cast aluminum! Quietly put it back, thanked the owner, and said I was just looking. Spent too much time trying to make other cast aluminum pans work (unsuccessfully) to even mess with that!!

Made a small ribeye last night in my cast iron pan and sliced it thin for steak salads for the girlfriend and I. Heated up the pan, brushed the steak with a little oil on both sides and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Cooked for a few minutes per side until and came out an awesome medium rare with a great crust.

Just seared some fantastic pork chops in my CI skillet. Soooooooo awesome. Brined them in brown sugar, salt, maple syrup red pepper flakes and apple cider vinegar. So tender.

You can sure get an excellent crust from the cast iron! Always nice on a piece of seared animal flesh!

Any links you guys have for seasoning? Ive got two small cast iron skillets and my grandad is giving me two dutch ovens and a flat griddle that he used as a eagle scout leader. Im sure they will all need to be seasoned since its prob been 30 years since use.

theyve been wrapped up in news paper thats now about the color of the background here on CA. At a quick glance, most of the stuff looks to just be dusty and maybe a tad dirty.

Scott..... If you get close to Birmingham, bring them with you, give them to me for a a week or so, and I'll clean them up and season them!

I love fooling with cast iron cookware. I have a lot of skillets from a small six inch up to a fourteen inch which I sit on my turkey fryer burner to use.

I have several Lodge skillets, but truthfully as much as I like Lodge these newer skillets can't hold a candle to the old stuff. Take a close look at the cooking surface of a new Lodge and you will find that it's pretty rough. My best performing skillets are old with completely smooth bottoms in them. I like them all though!

I have several dutch ovens too that I cook with on occasion. Something that all of my friends keep insisting I make is dutch oven pizza. It's pretty good but there are a lot of better things to make in a DO in my opinion.

I also have a waffle maker that I just picked up last spring... this thing is great and makes the most perfect waffles that I have ever seen. Never sticks... it just works great on my little camp stove. This one has the high rise that the maker sits in. It's probably five inches or more above the burner to the actual waffle iron. Oh yea, I dated that waffle iron and found that it was made between 1910 and 1922.

Cast Iron 12" skillet makes the best pineapple upside down cake you will ever eat. Melt some butter and brown sugar in the bottom, put in your pineapple slices (and cherries if ya want) then pour in batter and bake. Perfecto!

Oh yea, I love cast iron cook ware. I have 8" & 12" skillets at home that are always on the stove.

I also have two dutch ovens and a grill pan that I despise.

I just re-seasoned one of my dutch ovens last night and my 8" skillet.
