Somebody stop me from buying this...

http://www.cajuncastiron.com/eshop/10Ex ... ctCode=052

I'm getting into vending...wanna make brunswick stew with this, could also use it for vending chili, etc. Want to put it on a turkey burner if
it will hold the weight, waiting now to find out how much it weighs empty.
It's the kind of thing that you won't use often, but will love it when you do.
So....

That would make one helluva jambalaya pot too. That's got to weigh a ton, not literally, but thats probably more than a one man job to lift it. [smilie=a_whyme.gif]

I can't talk you out of it because it is the same pot that I have and use on a regular basis. It is the same pot you see here.



If you make J hook handles, you can handle it by yourself. It weighs about 55 lbs. You will need to make a jacket for it (My brothers specialty, he has made three for that same pot). Because they are cast, each pot is a little different. Our Agri-Supply here in VA has them in stock and I picked out one that looked nice and thick on the bottom with few blemishes. This also means that the jacket really should be custom made. I use the King Kooker 13.5" burner which puts out about 50,000BTU's and can get two 5 hour stews off of a single 20lb tank.

Seasoning it will be easy. I'll fill you in later if you need assistance. You will want to take a grinder with a flexible disk to the inside and try to get the little bumps off of the casting before you do. This will save wear and tear on your paddles and make cleanup easier. I have had mine for 3 years and love it.

As far as storing, I wipe mine down with vegatable oil after every cooking. I live in a very humid area. Never had a rust issue and it stays in the corner of the garage. Just let it dry, wipe it down and put a cover (plywood) to keep dust out.

Don't be afraid of these pots. I really do like cooking with mine.

I think you should buy it. You're not fooling anybody here. That's just "walking around" money for you. I also think you should have some brunswick stew waiting on us at SOTB. So there, it's decided. Buy it.
