LOL. My son had actually mentioned doing the same thing Loren. I'm almost afraid once I get my router table (have the router if he still wanted to just enscribe it in the wood).

But I have some more seasoning to do to it. Wish it was perfect, has a broken piece in one of the paddles. But a perfect waffle iron like this will draw over $2k. I paid a fraction of that. :)

Here are two of my favorites;

On the right, a Griswold No. 8 hinged fryer (thanks bitterroot!:thumb:)that gets used at least 2/3 times a week for a myriad of dishes. It's perfect for a batch of Alex MacDonald's stew!

On the left, a no name 16"er that weighs a ton!
You could stir it with a garden hoe and it won't slid on the burner! This one has had several hundred pounds of taco meat prepared in it as well as the occasional pork chop and rack of lamb.
Ummmmm...... rack of lamb:)

Funny you mentioned this. I just remembered that my parents used to make something like this as a kid. We always cooked in cast iron. I remember them making fried chicken. Then took some of the drippings (and crust in the dripping) and made a chicken gravy. Poured that over the fried chicken actually and mashed potatoes. Hmmmmmmm, making me think about trying to make it. Just remember the gravy not being like traditional country gravy. That grease drippings off the chicken really changed up the taste and texture, but was soooooooo good.

used to be a local favorite in the appalachian town my dad was from. twice a month, head to the local american legion on wednesday nights for waffles, creamed chicken and mashed potatoes, or fried chicken and mashed potatoes and chicken gravy with waffles and syrup... .. shit, i think i'll hit up the local I Hop and see if they have anything close to it before i get on the plane in the morning to head back to Graham.

sometimes, having depression era parents and grandparents has dividends when cooking,

We love our cast iron skillets at the house and in the field. My wife makes this awesome apple/honey Dutch baby thing that is awesome in the 10 inch skillet.
