Bayou Claissic cast iron roaster

Anyone try one of these?

I'm intrigued as to the performance of a cast iron roaster. Can anyone convert a 12 quart roaster for me? Is that a 15 lb turkey? A 20 lb bird? Us Canucks don't deal well with imperial measurements.

    ottawa_egger, fellow canuck here. This roaster looks interesting indeed and the price seems right, I wonder how much will shipping cost though. As for size, I recently cooked a 15 pounder in a 16.5" long KitchenAid stainless steel roaster with room to spare. This one is 18" long so I think it should accommodate a 20 pounder easily.

    Not sure.I would make a measurement on the EGG first.I recall someone posting about 16 inches is all that a large will clear.Good Luck! ;)
  • WOW! I like the looks of that roaster! I’ve been looking for something along those lines for some time now! Nice and deep for lasagna and Shepard’s pie type of stuff.
    I am, however with Hoss on this one…
    Get the measuring tape out before you order the darn thing.
    I just took back a very nice SS, copper clad, roaster that wouldn’t fit in my oven, let along the Egg :blush: !

    The price,..hard to believe. Just wondering what the weight of that big cast iron roaster would be? Lifting iron of that size in and out of the egg loaded with food....gotta be a boat anchor. Wrestling with the weight, would you still use it? :huh: Just at thought here.
    Merry Christmas

    Pretty sure that 18 inch long pan with handles will just not fit in my large egg. Probably a two person carry. Looks nice though.

    For what it's worth.
