Re: Modern Lodge

I stripped a modern Lodge for a co-worker who'd let her skillet get rusty. An overnight (IIRC) in the e-tank and the seasoning came off in big sheets, and the rust was gone. Seasoned and had it...

Pecan Pie in CBS?

I'm considering making a pecan pie in a cornbread skillet, as a means of reducing the total amount of pie eaten (I know, I know...), and would appreciate any insight/experience.

I'm thinking if I...

Re: Antique Gate Mark Skillet

That's a neat griddle! Looks like it shouldn't be too much trouble to restore - an e-tank is your friend (and easy to set up), but lye would be a good starting point. It'll likely then need an...

Re: Help ID, Please

The "mystery" No. 7 has gone down the road, to a friend who lives in Arizona. He received it earlier this week, and I'm still standing by for a report on his first go-around with cooking in it. It...

Help ID, Please

Picked up these 2 skillets over the weekend. I am unsure who made the No. 7, and would appreciate any help. They've been in lye for nearly 48 hours, and have improved appreciably, but will need...

Re: ID?

I was thinking BSR Red Mountain, till I saw the SBL Gris...is there a flat ground where the "point" of the underside of the handle joins the sidewall of the skillet?

Lodge square egg logo 10 1/2" bought at Walmart in Killeen, TX in 1994.

Re: "New" BSR Red Mtn 8..

Donna, that's a nice looking old skillet! Did you restore it, or is it "as found?" I ask because both of the RM 8s which I've seen were HAIRY. I love the extra (?) marks on yours!

Re: "New" BSR Red Mtn 8..

Thanks for the positive feedback on the cleanup. I'm finally learning to put a skillet in the lye and let it work, rather than rushing to apply a bunch of elbow grease.

This hand-incised 8 is...

Re: "New" BSR Red Mtn 8..

After 2 coats of Crisco, here's the result. I'm really pleased with this one, as it is the blackest (after initial seasoning) of any skillet I've restored; hopefully that comes through in these...

Re: Too rich for my blood!

Lodge made a series of 4 (?) outdoor-themed skillets, IIRC in the late 90s/early 2000s. There was a bass, a buck head, the dog and a duck. The bass seems to be the most common, in my unscientific...

Re: Failing the egg test, what am I doing wrong?

Make a couple batches of cornbread in your skillet (plenty of bacon fat in the bottom before you add the batter). I'd read about that as a good way to build seasoning, but just experienced with a...

Re: "New" BSR Red Mtn 5
