New Cast-Iron Is Very Sexy

Well, Valentine’s Day has come and gone.  Good riddance!  Those of you who know me, know that the Deerslayer household does not acknowledge the day. You can see my thoughts on the matter here.  Valentine’s Day should be called Unnecessary Excessive Spending Day.

If we DID celebrate the Hallmark Greeting Card Day, and if I hadn’t just received one for Christmas,  I’d want this amazing oval cast-iron  roaster.  Deerslayer got this one for me and I love it.


This extra large, oval roaster is exactly what I needed to prepare venison shanks with white wine and garlic.


The extra length allows the roaster to fit over two burners on the stovetop so that larger bits, like shanks, can be browned all at once.

It’s beautiful and elegant in its simplicity. Downright sexy!

While it’s pretty hefty, weighing in at 26 lbs., my Cabela’s cast-iron roasting pan with lid will also work beautifully for preparing large quantities of “cook-all-day” meat.

I’m so lucky that Deerslayer knows me so well that he knew that some sexy new cast-iron was the perfect gift that will keep on giving for generations.

  1. Wow, that is an incredible addition the kitchen! My man loves his Lodge skillet and is looking to upgrade. Does it take a lot of time to season this bad boy?

    Also, totally feel you on Valentine’s Day. I bought him “The Field Guide to Meat” in lieu of chocolates. Nothing says “I love you” like home-cooked meals.

    • Like Lodge cast-iron, my Cabela’s pan came pre-seasoned. Of course it will continue to get better with age. I’m looking forward to using it over and over and over. Glad to find a kindred spirit on the whole V.D. thing. I made venison jerky for Deerslayer for “UnValentine’s Day”. We’re celebrating today! You’re absolutely right. Nothing says “I love you” like homemade jerky or a home-cooked meal.

  2. Wow I’ll be damned if I don’t get that sexy cast iron roaster for myself. I don’t believe in Valentine’s either, and neither do I believe in Halloween or excessive Christmas spending. The real meaning of christmas is NOT SPENDING but that is what it has morphed into. In short I don’t spend money unless there is a damn good reason like buy a good cast iron roaster (where can I get it?). Have a pleasant day.
