    Hhhm, what exactly is that? Need more info. Size and depth? My wife says I am banned from buying more cast iron, but there are ways around that.

    Found it. It might be too large for me to properly hide from my wife. :p
    I am also not sure how often I’d use it. Let us know what you use it for.

    Is their seasoning job and finish any better that their other pans or am I going to have to sand and season that one too?

    Ive used it for making pancakes, hashbrowns, lasagna, fried chicken, hush puppies, the list is endless.

    As to the seasoning, i just get em from lodge and put em straight to work. Enough cooking in em and they get good

    My dad has the original version of this. I don't think I can wait for him to die... So I may have to buy one of these newfangled versions they are making now. I see that Agri Supply has an identical one for half the price though... May have to try that one!

    Where is the one from Agri Supply made? More than likely China. Do what you want, but I'm not going to cook anything in Chinese cast iron, no telling what is in it.

    I'll spens a little extra on lodge seeing as they make em in Tennessee, and employ many veterans.

    They are. They are made the old school way. These skillets are a limited edition as I understand it. Still its a lot to drop on a skillet.

    I have a Finex 12” so I have no sympathy on the pricing. But it is a great pan.

    Quality tools in the kitchen are worth what you pay for them IMHO.

    Yeah, we’ll talk about my new smoker when it arrives in a few months. If my wife has a say I’ll be sleeping in it. :(

    I doubt it. It is a carbon steel skillet. I imagine it will function similar to a tri-ply or copper clad skillet.

    She gives me crap about why I have my own pan. The two on the right were seasoned great, yesterday. Stainless scrubbie & Dawn fixed that.

    I have a 10" unmarked pan from my wife's grandmother that I have been cooking in for a while now. Low and behold last time she came by she brought me 2 more 10" pans and a 8" flat griddle pan. I guess now I get to season these up and stash them about.

    I was thinking 1 for the stove, 1 for the grill, and one for the campfire!
