    Well instead of cornbread we did some pumpkin spice bread in an old nickel plated Griswold. Turned out good. Getting to be pumpkin season :-). This was a box mix but I'm good with that. 20190901_202714.jpg 20190901_211938.jpg

    Not so much what I'm cooking but the heat source for cooking with cast iron.

    The kerosun heater works a treat for long simmering soups, stew and chili's. IN the winter my garage is heated while I cook and in the summer all the heat is in the garage and not fighting the air conditioning if I were simmering on the stovetop.

    It apply's a gentle even heat and works really well. I also make tea and or coffee on it in the winter with my percolator coffee pot.

    Here's a chili I was making back in July. It was 95+ degrees outside and a cool as a pickle in the house while our dinner cooked.

    I cooked on a friend's traeger. We had to crank it up over 400 degrees to fry in the cast iron skillet.
    Heated tortillas on the top rack.

    After much grinding and polishing it became a big griddle, works like a charm for mass bacon cooking. I gave it to DireWolf.

    I am looking for a flat cast iron to retrofit the old grill. no more grilling for me.

    We also use clay pots and an the earth oven to cook meats, home made bread (from starter, no yeast), vegetables, dessert, etc...

    We can start a good fire in the earth oven and cook for 1 day with one load of wood.

    I made beef schwarma for dinner this week, the pitas were heated on a round cast iron griddle, they puffed nicely. Found the griddle at a flea market, works as a comal for tortillas too. I use it on the induction cooker when cooking steaks on the balcony, the lack of sides means a fair amount of spattering.
