Well I pulled the trigger on another d.o. and skillet. As if I needed them....and I did! They should be at my place when I get home next Saturday. I tried a 10" skillet with lid made by camp chef this time. I have read some good things about them here. I ordered a Lodge 12" d.o. from Target and the price was MUCH better than the Lodge site. I guess while I am smoking Sunday I will also fire up the grill and season the new toys. Might even make a cobbler of some kind. It has been a long hitch this time and I need some smoke around me. Reading the forum over here is the only thing that keeps me going. Thanks to you all!!!
