Cast Iron search terms

Discussion in 'General Dutch Oven Information' started by timstalltaletav, Jan 2, 2015.

  1. Anyone have any hints on keywords for searching for cast iron cookware? I live basically on the edge of Amish country in the middle of nowhere PA and my search for a big (5 gallon +) chili/gumbo pot resulted in about 500 cast iron kettles (I already have 3 of them) and one pot that looks like it might be big enough with no contact info. Any help appreciated!

  6. Damn man thanks! Shipping isn't bad at all to PA. Could get 2 at this price!!! The Amish want $300 for one at the flea market ... I know it's well seasoned but not that good!

    My local ace hardware has various Dutch ovens. They also carry the King Kooker brand of tamale pots.

    Curious as to what you plan to cook in this giant.  Full, that would be 75+ ample servings of chili.  Plan to serve out of or transfer to smaller containers for safety sake.  Do you have a tripod to hang this on, or will you be banking coals around the perimeter?

    POPCORN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  14. Not sure yet what we'll be cooking but I always find myself saying, "I should have gotten the bigger one" whenever I buy tools or kitchen ware.

    I'll figure something out. We always have a few big bashes throughout the year so I'm sure I can use it.

    I have a tripod that should hold it. If not, I have a set up I used to pull engines out of cars that will work well.
     
  15. Anything cooked or smoked in cast iron is fun.  Your doing something that the average person just doesn't do and are amazed when you do it.  Heck some people have never seen a nice collection of iron.

    I cook chili and unless you have a specific outdoor application, I would steer away from legged pots. Its fine if you normally cook on the ground but I have cook a couple a pots of chili or jambalaya or stew and with very few exceptions the legs are a royal pain to get on a burner or stand.

    Look at a # 14 or #16 or even a #20, now thats a bunch o chili, enough for a troop of hungry Scouts



    I have a set of legged pots, I have used each of them but they are not my norm. Another suggestion I would make, if you are looking at a say 30gal. pot, look at 2 each 16's instead. easier to handle, clean, move, just basically better to cook on.

    Just some thoughts.
