  • Re: Thinking about buying a dutch oven

    Stike - since tweev hasn't chimed in to much and I know how much you like links to Internet sites check these out about the open flame and enameled Dutch ovens on grills. It appears that you may be able to use on the grill but it is not recommended especially on the lodge model. I am just messing around and killing time at work and for the original poster of this topic I would listen to Stike- he is very knowledgeable. I just can't resist messing with stike a bit.


    Using Your Lodge Enamel Cast Iron

    Your Lodge Enamel Cast Iron can be used for almost any cooking technique, gas, electric, ceramic*,  induction and in the oven.  It is not recommended for use on outdoor grills or over open outdoor flames.

    Gas flames must always be confined to the base area, and must never extend around the sidewalls of the pan. Long handles should be positioned safely where they do not hang over the front of the stove or other heat zones.

    Cooking heats

    Medium or low heat will provide the best results for cooking, including frying and searing. Allow the pan to heat gradually and thoroughly for even and efficient cooking results. Once the pan is hot, almost all cooking can be continued on lower settings.

    High heat temperatures should only be used for boiling water for vegetables or pasta, or for reducing the consistency of stocks or sauces. High heats should never be used to preheat a pan before lowering the heat for cooking. Cast iron retains heat so efficiently that overheating will cause food to burn or stick.
  • Re: Which way have you had the most success cooking brats and Italian sausage?

    Thanks guys for the replies. I'm trying to to time my drinking tonight with these. I want to throw them on when I have a buzz and pull them off when I'm about drunk and have the munchies. :\">
    I think im going to try to cook them at a little lower temp to accomish this. I think it will be difficult to mess these up

    Nothing like winning money and pissing off your friends then going home to grill on the egg!! Love it
  • Re: Problem with cooking times

    Just need to bump your temp up a bit. Most will cook at 275 dome temp which gives you around 250 grate temp. With 225/235 dome temp your grate temp could be as low as 200.
