Nothin on the grill or smoker today but thought you folks who like CI would like my latest CI pickup, clean, and inaugural cook:
Picked up a Wagner #8 online and was supposedly cleaned and seasoned. Got it in my hands and it was a Mess! Forgot to take any before photos, but after 3 rounds with oven cleaner sitting in a bag for 24 hrs she was finally clean enough to my liking.
I then scrubbed her with a SS scrubber and dish soap concentrate twice. Then dried her and on the stove for a couple minutes to dry more. I then greased her lightly with shortening and put her in a 350 oven for 15 minutes. Wiped her with a dry paper towel and then back in the oven for an hour.
Any constructive criticism and feedback is appreciated! :D. Her inaugural cook I spoiled her and had her cook fried chicken drumsticks! My first time ever cooking fried chicken. Came out tasty!
After one seasoning and fried chicken cook:
