  • Eggcelsior said: @fishlessman‌ where is that basket from? its a lodge chicken fry basket, just dont know if it will fit a mini, it fits in the kub

  • caliking said: @Firemanyz - I seasoned all of my CI pans using the Canter method, maybe 2 years ago. They have held up well, but I don't cook in CI everyday. The method *will* smoke up your kitchen and SWMBO *will* get mad at you. And I'm a h…
  • with the dizzy products, if its for me i add heat, if im serving it to others i add sugar, crowds seem to have a sweet tooth
