    Cast/carbon afficionados

    Yes. I just did the bottom of the first cast iron skillet I ever bought. Used a wire wheel in a drill press. 43 year old baked on carbon takes effort. Another trick is put them in the oven and run the self clean cycle. I haven’t had my Matfer pans long enough to have issues yet but I’ve had to strip several cast iron pans.
  2. I’m taking a few months away from most of the few internet sites I visit. I’ll still check in here at least once a week. Last year I took time off when I went to culinary school and some strange rumors spread. I will be dedicated to a great personal project for 3-4 months. Just want everyone to know things are good even if I’m not here as often until spring.

    When did we stop being the United States?

    We stopped being united with the McCarthyism era. It was the beginning of accusations and division.

    Material things your wife wont let you have....

    My wife said I’m not allowed a drug habit or an unsuitable girlfriend. “Unsuitable” is what disturbs me.

    Nothing. We don’t play those games.
  7. I love Paths Of Glory to show the madness of that war.

    I’ve blown $1000 on a weekend road trip. He blew a career.

    A sad day

    The last of the chocolate is gone. This is all that’s left of the Halloween candy.

    Time for a tipping thread

    Kitchen staff cooks and packages up a take out order and the waitress wants a tip for handing the customer the bags.
