re: Grinding cast iron smooth ... tell me how to do it. - unclebuck504
The first time i actually laid hands on a Griswold dutch oven, i thought it was a fake. I thought there was no way in hell it was cast iron, as smooth, light, and thin as it was compared to the clunkers we buy today from Lodge. Everyone assumes that because of the technology we have today, every...

re: Grinding cast iron smooth ... tell me how to do it. - unclebuck504
I'm not sanding it to strip the seasoning, i'm doing it to get the metal smooth. People do it all the time to their jambalaya pots and other cast iron cookware, especially since manufacturers don't make them smooth like they used to. ...

re: This sums up why decent poboys are rare in BR - unclebuck504
John Candy was an accurate description when I got the nickname back in high school, as that's how I was built at the time. I've since lost a lot of weight, but I'm not shaking a nickname I've had for 27 years. To those of you who haven't made the assumption,not that it matters, but thank you ... ...

re: This sums up why decent poboys are rare in BR - unclebuck504
I just love how so many of you folks from Baton Rouge can just take the liberty to tell someone what kind of bread a po-boy should or shouldn't be on, and it's no big deal ... "New Orleans folks should get over themselves." But let someone put something in jambalaya,gumbo,or etouffee that you dee...

Gris Gris, ... there are several of us "Atlanta Exiles" from Louisiana who post here on the Tigerdroppings FDB. There's really no "Atlanta food board" that's worth a damn.
