    Seasoning Cast Iron with...

    Primal Fuel
    Bacon grease. Slightly lower temp, slightly longer time. But dang it's like Primal air freshener for the home. (Don't tell Febreeze or they'll be test marketing Bacon scent and it will be awful.)

    Haha, I was thinking this the other day while re-seasoning mine! Lard works better, but bacon grease is all I had and it smells fabulous. Everyone in the house was hungry though...

    Duck fat smoke point is around 375 too, worth throwing into the mix with bacon grease.
    With a 10-15 min warm up my Staub fry pan cooks just fine at the lower temps.

    Coconut oil, bacon grease or lamb fat (after they've been on low & slow in the crock pot).

    I always use butter. It works great.

    Mine's usually lard with a side of whatever grease was left in the pan.

    I'm actually contemplating buying lard now. This morning I fried up some ground pork for soup and it made my house smell like bacon when I exited the house. Yummy....

    Anybody else find it slightly inflammatory though? Every time I eat a signifiant amount of animal fat, my throat gets scratchy and I feel slightly shitty. This only happens if I eat like more than 20g animal fat in one sitting.

    Sakura, too much fat of any kind can make me a bit queasy, but nothing in the throat or skin.

    Does anyone else season on top of the stove? I used an oven this time but it was because I was seasoning a muffin tin (a muffin iron?) and it wouldn't work well on the stove. Stove top is easier for me and it doesn't heat up my living space as much.

    Sakura Girl I am finding that having cream in my coffee gives me a funny feeling in my gut, throat - that ahem feeling !

    anyhoo I love my cast iron cookware. Really old stuff that I just cook with. I often fill with water as soon as I have finished cooking. It then just wipes clean.
    I love cast iron !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
