Re: Does Griddling Count??

I have heard good things about them, but have not purchased and likely won't since it is just two of us and normally I am smoking or grilling the food! Get some GrillGrates and/or their grill plates and have nearly the same abilities. Here's the grill plates. https://www.crisco.com/our-heritage The...

Re: Total noob to curing

Late to the party as usual but I'd look at Pop's curing brine and the discussions on it.

Here's a starting place.

Re: Carbon steel vs. Cast iron

I've also seen videos of a guy polishing up a cast iron pan to get a smooth finish. The idea was that the older process brought them to that finish, but the newer process leaves them rougher than they should be. I used to have the tools to do this but that was two jobs ago and I'm now retired. 8-)

Re: Splitting Up Some Maple

Mike,

Down here in the South maple is one of the more rare woods.

There is no sugar maple. Most/all of what we can find is soft maple.

Similarly Alder is unobtainium thru local growth. No mesquite in my state either.

Re: Carbon steel vs. Cast iron

Carbon Steel won't warp badly/easily if taken care of. Don't overheat it or bang the crap out of it and a decently thick pan will last a long time. Compared to typical CI, like Lodge, CS pans are generally much slicker finished so they will season more like old Griswold and Wagner pans do. They also...

Re: Splitting Up Some Maple

Birdseye Maple's rarity is from its use in woodworking. It won't flavor any differently than the next piece from the same tree that isn't birdseye figured.

Maple is too good to go in a burn pit if you have other, more ordinary, wood for the pit.

Re: My collection

While Lodge and similar CI pans are easy to find their finish leaves a lot to be desired compared to older CI. There are still some nicely finished new CI pans but I can't afford them. With all that said there are still some nice Carbon Steel pans available at restaurant supply houses that are nicel...

Re: Cold weather techniques

Within reason the controller will handle things. IE you shouldn't need to set a higher temp setting. Afterall if it won't hold one temp why would you think it would hold a higher temp? Just like HVAC equipment. ;) A purpose built blanket or welding blanket will certainly help. For those with WSM's a...
