Wow, I’ve never seen CI shine like that! What’s mounted on the angle grinder?

My wife gets pissed when I put her fiestaware into the smoker.

Dutch oven, loaf pans, skillets, are all cast iron that I use. Grills and smokers work better with them. No plastic, rubber, or glass on my cast iron.
No staining from the smoke on my cast iron. It takes a beating and keeps looking great. Fiestaware will stain badly on a smoker. I found out the hard way... Do not use your wife's dishes in your smoker.

@rookidad I would give cast iron a try. I’m not frying eggs on mine but it really is a versatile piece of cookware. LeCreusset makes enameled cast iron at hundreds more. Try searing a steak in cast iron and give it a whirl, I think you will like it and for $20-$30 you can’t beat it.

Yeup. I did this to all my cast iron a while back. Makes all the difference in the world!

I used my air grinder, then my Air ROS. Slickem up, and reseason.

I'll take 3 of them fried eggs while the skillet is hot!
I've got bacon for tradin....

For your egg test, did you start with any oil, butter, anything before adding the egg?

You have to have some kind of fat, oil or butter.

I don’t do many eggs in them, but sure do like my Dutch oven for bread, and the 2 loaf pans for when I want loaf shape, one pot meals, fried potatoes, pizza, nachos, and you want to talk about a good grilled cheese!
The other day steaks were on the menu, but rain ruined the chance for the grill...CI pan for the steak saved the day.

I guess you missed post 24.

I like butter as a primer for any fried eggs. Great flavor!

Properly cared for Cast Iron is never washed, and always greased lightly for storage.

Well done, cast iron never fails. We have 5 different sized lodge on our stove top, keep them well seasoned and have little problems with sticking. Would love to have a Griswald but have not found one that is reasonably priced. I jump between butter and bacon grease for eggs. We also have several footed Dutch ovens and used them on scout camp outs with no complaints on the food. Enjoy

i love me some CI. My pileaus don't touch any other kind of pot. I love Lodge, but if money is tight Academy's line isn't bad either for the price.
