bacon and grease

dw and i used to cook all the bacon and sausage inside, but always hated the trheat of grease all over evrything inside the rv
so we started doing them outsdie on the grill
i have alarge flat cast iron griddle/ridged side, makes for a quick bacon cook and absolutley no grease or smell inside the rv.
plus it tends to gravitate folks to your campsite if you cook up a bunch for those bacon samich cravings

get the THICK stuff and grill away

Neat.

So this thing has two sides, one has ridges, one is smooth with a "grease pit"

What would you cook on the ridged side? Anything?

What do you clean it up with?

i use dawn dish soap to clean it then re grease it with a light coat of olive oil

just a dab of dawn to release the fats
i just cant deal with old grease and the chance of getting sick
so we wash it real good then re-season it required
but i have to admit the amount of built up olive oil is thick like varnish

I always wash my cast iron with soap and water. If it's seasoned correctly soap won't hurt it. The season coating should be black, hard and shiny. If it's sticky or dull you should clean it very well and apply a very thin coating of pure vegatable oil and place it in a 500F oven for 2 hours then let it cool naturally. You'll be amazed what it looks like when it comes out of there.

I've had to soap mine a time or two. I've always either re-seasoned the pan...or put some water in and boiled it. Seems to jetison the soap from the pores.

That black build up/varnish like substance....is a good thing. I've had some pans that got a little sticky. It usually occurs during seasoning...if you put a little too much oil on the pan.
