Default This Mornings Breakfast

Started the day with my modern 15" Lodge skillet, some bacon, eggs, bread, pequin chile, ham & cheese.



Then I took the 4 pieces that I found the other day, sprayed them with foaming oven cleaner & bagged them.







I'm looking forward to placing them back into service.

Pulled the pieces from the bag today to look them over.

YUCK!!! What a mess!

The one that is most likely the newest skillet in the bunch, was clean enough to wash up & season. The ribbed skillet & the Dutch oven are still pretty crusty. I placed them into the lye tank with a few others. I'll let them soak for a few more days.

Everything looks great. One thing that's starting to tick me off is many of the youtube "chefs" who are saying that new Lodges are not good because they are a rougher texture. Although I do love to cook in older pans just because it's neat to bring something back from being unusable to looking almost new, the stuff I cook in them is no better than what I make in my new Lodge Dutch ovens.

Thanks. I'm looking forward to using the older pieces I have found. They are much smoother inside.

There is a small note at the bottom of the directions about adding some flour if you are above 5K' in elevation.
