That same site has smaller ones. Guess it depends on the family and friends you have to cook for.
That is a neat site ( http://www.bayouclassicdepot.com/cast_iron_cookware.htm
) - I may order my next CI from there instead of bidding for an antique on ebay next time. Thanks.
I just got my Bayou Classic 16 qt Dutch oven. The lid is so warped it won't fit the pot and the lip around the inside of the lid appears to be broken in two places. It could be made this way, but I can't find a reason why. Finish is VERY rough. I'm not a happy camper.
I'll find out in the next day or so how their customer service is. This pot is going back.
