Default #11 Dutch Oven is all dressed up with no where to go

The best find of my short career is now all cleaned up and ready for use. Very excited to find out the iron underneath all the gunk isn't too damaged. There's some very light pitting on the bottom but all the markings are still very legible. The cooking surface is flawless and it sits flat as a pancake. I plan on keeping this baby in the living room so i can admire it all day, every day

For it's first meal, I'll start with a few rounds of REAL BACON (no water, no sugar) then i'll give popcorn a go (never made it before, other than in a microwave). After that, I might try to do a whole chicken or small turkey....maybe a ham? Anyway, I'm pretty darn excited!!!

Congrats! Nice. For the popcorn put about 1/3 cup of kernels in a small cup. Add a tbsp’ish of oil & stir to coat kernels. Add to preheated pot. By coating the kernels you don’t need to shake the pot.

Excellent Score and hard to top. That would be a dream find for me in any size, and I'm still looking woodwork find.

Excellent job of reconditioning a nice DO--definitely a living room item in my opinion! Even though we may be a bit envious, it surely is nice to see such a fine set redone so well. Pat yourself on the back for me, okay?

Does the not needing to shake the pot part include after the kernels have begun popping? I have a 3 legged kettle and a couple of #4 scotch bowls that would really benefit from this.
