Grandma Dorothy would not be happy with me. When I moved into her house, I inherited wall-to-wall shag carpeting, a post-mod wall clock, and her cast-iron skillet. The first two disappeared rather quickly, but the pan, which was smoother than a baby’s bottom, lasted a few years until one day I decided to use it to fry fish outside. Do you know what flaming oil will do to the finish on a cast-iron skillet? It will strip it faster than the wire brush I use in this video.
