    I want to cook lots of okra....but the local prices are INSANE.........$5 - 7 per LB............retarded! I could live of it and beans and bacon and good bread.

    Butter? I prefer bacon fat:D
    Have you tried growing your own okra and collards? You can grow them in pots;)

    I was always doing low to medium heat but we had a ton of issues with food sticking. But someone mentioned that I need to let the pan get hot before putting anything in it. Now we have no more sticking issues. I have also been been putting some olive oil in with the butter which keeps the butter from burning. After I finish cooking I wipe out the majority of the grease and then turn on the heat till I see some smoke, and the seasoning is getting really nice now

    Anyone have one of the new Field Company pans?

    From what I’ve read, they seem to have recreated the older stuff rather faithfully.

    What do y’all think?

    Nice looking stuff. But pretty pricey.

    I'm amortizing the cost over the rest of my life and my kids and grandkids. Comes out to $1 a year. Not bad.

    i have the 10" i think (the very first one they released) for about a year now...it works well but i actually like my lodge that i hand-sanded smooth...the hefty weight is still there which i prefer. field company removed a lot of the weight but it's still a freaking cast iron pan so only camping it'll see is car camping anyway so i won't buy more.

    what i normally use it for is reheating left over pizza (works way better than microwave) - heats up faster than my lodge but it also loses heat faster but i don't use it long enough so that's a bonus so i can put it away quicker...that's pretty much what i use it for otherwise i go with lodge.

    This was probably mentioned somewhere way back in this thread, but if you regularly cook on cast iron, get one of these.

    They clean like nothing else I've used.

    Great shout, served me well over the years! And they are great for resting hot things on if you are not on natural flooring (tent etc)!

    I'm just about to get my hands on some Red Eyed Hog B-Fat and I can't wait. Getting hold of it in the UK in the past has been a non-starter!

    My skillet won't know what's hit it!
