BLACK IRON DUDE
“Black Iron Dude”, like so many other Bloggers, have inspired entertained, lept to the sky with stardom and fizzled into the faded memories of our life. The Black Iron Dude and I have a common interest of cast iron cookware. These cooking utensils are sturdy, cheap, heat retaining, non-stick and practically indestructible. We like to call our cast iron utensils ‘Black Iron” We have two black iron skillets on standby at all times on our stove. We use them almost everyday. I have one skillet that dates back to the 20’s that gets daily use. The thing about ‘Black Iron’ is once you get one functioning piece of cooking history, you want to collect more. The nice thing about Black Iron is they can be very affordable if you are ready to do a little work.
An old ice chest or any plastic tub will hold our electrically charged cleansing bath.
An old bbq grill or piece of conductive metal, plastic (non conductive) piece, Sodium Carbonate (dish soap) and a battery charger are the items you will need. I am now going to send you to Black Iron Dude for the full instructions.
Now wasn't that easy. It is pretty remarkable how well this method works. It sounds a little scary running a current through water. Be brave and do not be tempted to lick the pan while the battery charger is on. The pan was seasoned and now we have a beautiful pan that will last another life time. The Black Iron Dude dated this pan from the 30’s. The quality is superior to any pan manufactured today. The only problem now is to locate another cast iron project.

Very cool post. Electricity and water, how fun! ;)
Thanks Chris. It is fun.
I've never ever heard of this method for cleaning up an old pan. Sounds crazy but very interesting. Now if I just had the nerve to try it, I'd pick up more cast iron pans at garage sales. oh, and one more thing... you'll be wishing you could like the pan after today's game.
Lea Ann, I will see you this afternoon on the battlefield wearing Silver & Black. The replacement referees cannot even help the Elway worshiping Bronco fans today. Let the battle begin.
Nice job!I've been threatening to buy some cast iron.
Boy did that feel good. Especially after that horribly embarrassing game a couple years ago. Wasn't the score something like 80 - 0. :)
Speaking of cast iron, put my large one through the paces last night and it performed excellently. I made a hash out of leftovers, usually the taters make a sticky mess. Nope, all came out perfectly brown and intact. Will be having a little bit for lunch today. Oh yeah. xo, Biggles
Greg, This will be a pan that you will use everyday. They are also cheap.
Lea Ann, When Elway runs for President I will not vote for him. Congrats.
meathenge, Hello fellow black iron enthusiast. Yeah cast iron rules.
Now try that waffle iron I warned you about....
