Just got a 3 qt. cast iron casserole pot that is currently seasoning in the oven. For anyone who's interested, Macy's is having a $6.99 sale on cast iron cookware--the casserole pot, fajita pans w/ wood trivet, a 3 small pan set, or a large griddle pan.
So now I have the 3 qt. pot and would like to possibly use it on the egg tonight. Looking for recipes for things like chili or soup for this slightly rainy, gloomy day in New England.
Also--when cooking in the pot on the egg, do you leave the lid off to allow smoke in easier, or does the smoke penetrate even with the lid on?
