Cast iron

henapplehenapple Posts: 14,281
Somehow my wife got me into TJ Maxx today. Later... I was glad. Scored two pieces of cast iron, lodge at that. The griddle fits perfectly and the small skillet also. It's like the griddle was made for the egg. Cost $42 but I didn't think that was bad.

When i seasoned the mangrate in the oven I ruined a cookie sheet. What temp and time on the egg? Direct or indirect?

I see fried eggs, bacon and Taters Saturday morning.

    I would do it on the stove. I heat mine on medium until it starts to smoke.

    If you do it in the egg, you definitely want to go indirect.

    I think all the lodge stuff is seasoned.  Good score! 

    Is this what you got?


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Tony, there is Lodge outlet store in South Pittsburg just before you hit Chattanooga. If you have not been in one you ought to make room in your Ccard and hit it. To me its always a great toy store and my wife is fed up with it.

    ...and as long as you are headed that way you may as well come on back through Atlanta.  I'm down to my last bag of OO :(.
