Two New Toys. Chapter Two

22 posts in this topic

Also arrived yesterday a Lodge Cast Iron Sportsman's Grill. I wanted a hibachi/yakatori style grill for fast, really high heat cooks for the two of us, and this little baby really fits the bill.

 

Baptized tonight cooking a Flat Iron steak over a mature bed of cherry wood coals/embers from large smoking chunks.

 

Thanks for Looking and Happy Cooking.

Hmmm...saw this at my last visit to kitchens and co. Didn't look at it too hard. Please, if you have a moment, a detailed review would be sweet..

That looks to be a mean grillin' machine Jack. What's your longer term choice of fuel going to be? Can you use pellets, lump a combination?

Very nice indeed. You're going to have fun with that grill. Me and Mrs skreef use our Yakatori for a date night grill. Fun sitting around the grill cooking together. That was on my list of possible grills to buy when I wanted something to cook personal kabobs on.

Will do soon, prowe.  Did a Flat Iron steak yesterday evening and that little grill took me back to younger days.  I love my kamados, but cooking over open fire and hardwood embers is so elemental, it's really a nice change.

Thanks, Al. I hadn't thought of the lump/pellets combo. Last evening I just started with a thin base layer of small lump, and slowly built up to a thick bed of coals using cherry wood chunks.

Thanks, ck.  For most cooks it's just the two of us, so the KJ Jr. gets used a lot.  I'm really looking forward to having the option of using this open flame grill.

Congrats Jack, sweet lil cooker. Yeah, the Lodge hibachi cookers can get mighty hot...check this out...and I could have gotten it even hotter had I added a bit more fuel to the fire :)

A searing machine!!! The IR temp you see in the 3rd pic was taken on the cooking grate.

That is one nice little grill and you'll get a lot of use out of it. We've had one for several years and really like it for searing steaks and lamb chops

as well as cooking sausages, corn on the cob, kabobs, etc. I've even put a small CI skillet on it to fry up some eggs and bacon.

Congratulations and enjoy!

Thank you, Rob.  Great photos.  I'm certain we are going to love this grill.

Thanks, K_sqrd.  Tonight it's lamb chops cooked on apple wood coals.

@jackjumper101 - Jack, you are one very lucky man.  That Lodge hibachi is a tremendous cooker.  I had one until my nephew, who had just grauaktedd from the US Air Force Academy stopped by ChezChef.  He loved it.  I gave it to him and he cooks on it about 4 evening a week.  

 

That little cooker does a wonderful job on steaks, chops, fillets, etc.  Controlling the air is a snap,  I'd almost buy another but I'm afraid my KKs would want to play nice in the pool with an interloper!  :-o

 

All the best my friend and congrats and kudos only you new cooker.  You and your bride enjoy it and use it in great health!

That looks like fun!

Thanks, shuley.  It is fun cooking on open flame once in a while as an alternative to the closed lid kamados; a completely different method of fire building, temperature control, and management of the food on the cooking surface.  Equally rewarding, but more elemental.
