While across the street digging in the old garage looking for something that I forgot I was looking for, I found a pot I didn't even know I had. I have some large jambalaya pots over there but I found this one which is a median size. Personally I think its going to be quite handy because its almost light enough so I can carry it. I am getting to be such a weenie baby anymore.
Heres the pot w/ a stand, it looks about comparable to a #14 DO
I dug out and old burner assembly, I knew I had it but, it was never used, for years, never used...LOL It was for when I was thinking seriously about cooking chili.....or jambalaya.
It even has a cute little temperature adjustment I think, or may, since it snaps be a self contained lighter? Its another mystery to enjoy solving when I get some hose. All my hoses seems to have dry rotted and the quick-connects rusted. When did all this stuff get so old?
Now for the work! I don't know if you can see, but the seasoning needs some love.
I am thinking maybe a good scrub with Ajax, or steel wool? The botton is pitting with rust. Or should I cut out the country boy cleaner and step right up to a wire wheel on an angle grinder? What about oven cleaner, would the burner work to activate it?
I have some flax oil.. But it has to be cleaned first. I am not worrying about the curing process, I am planing to use it first to make cracklins. It looks the perfect size to support my speed at cooking these days.
So suggestions? Ideas? Warnings?
