If there is one thing I’ve learned in cooking, is that most things taste far better if cooked in cast iron. There is just something that cast iron does to food…particularly great Southern comfort food…that takes it to a whole new level of deliciousness. On our way back from Chattanooga, we stopped in the small town of South Pittsburg so we could visit the Lodge Cast Iron Factory Store. This store is full of the best cast iron products that are used throughout the world. Every shape, size, and type of cast iron that you could ever use is there. There are also a number of other great kitchen items, cookbooks, and local food throughout the store as well. And on the last row are shelves and shelves of discounted items. All these items have minimal cosmetic defects but still perfect for use at a much lower cost. We got a couple of skillets and a griddle that we put to good use as soon as we got home. And if nothing else then it is worth stopping by the store to get a glimpse of the Pan Man, made entirely out of cast iron and standing as the welcome into the store. Now all I can think about is all the food I’m going to cook with my new cast iron!
