    Remember to have the fried bacon on the Inside also!

I cook my eggs in it, and a grilled cheese with bacon fat instead of butter is almost so good it's a sin.
    I have used lard, peanut, and coconut oil; (basically whatever is around) all have worked about the same to my recollection.

    Any oil with a higher smoke temperature will do for seasoning.
    I use Crisco for the most part.

    Tom, you sir are evil, I will also have to make popcorn before supper as well

    My grandmother would cut off a hunk of cheddar, toss it in the frying pan right after the bacon came out...
    Pretty quick with a spatula, out of the pan and right on top of a halved biscut.
    Oh MY!

    2 coats done on the seasoning gents. Forgot to take a pic in between but they are back in the oven and starting to look very nice. Lard melting in a CI pan is a beautiful thing.

    My son moved into his first apartment last year. For Christmas I gave him my 10" skillet that I had used nearly every day for over 20 years. That thing is so smooth you could melt plastic on it and it wouldn't stick. I have a second one that I have been working on for a few years, and can give to my daughter in a few more when it's her turn. It should be close enough by then.
