When The Wife Is Away,

The cast iron comes out to play.




Yes sir, everything a man needs right there.

Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder. Garlic Salt, Boneless Pork Chops and Fried Taters and Onions.

Real Food.

It was delicious.

I’ve even got most of the mess cleaned up already, just gotta go wipe out the frying pans.

I’m waiting for them to finish cooling off.

Since she and the boy are up in Seattle watching a football game and probably eating crappy $15 hot dogs, I think I’m doing OK here.

  1. One of the best meals I ever had in my life was pork chops with fried taters & onions. We were holed up in the back of dad’s old pickup on a -30F day while out hunting deer just west of Great Falls, MT. My wife and I still have the same meal regularly but I can still taste that meal my father and I had in the back of that truck back in the late 70’s!


  2. Just cook outdoors on your iron barbecue plate, no cleanup worries. If you’ve got any possums living in a nearby tree, you never need cleanup a barbie again!
    Dunno what Yank opossums are like, but surely they’re into meat eating too? Aussie ringtails and brushtails hang back just long enough for the fire to die low, a bachelor’s outdoor cleaning crew.


    • G’day Mate!
      I always love it when someone from Down Under drops by.
      Yeah, we have Possums around here but I go out of my way to encourage them to move along. the rotten bastards will tip over the garbage can and scatter shit all over the place.
      Nasty big rats is all they are.


    • Mmmm. Moose meat. The best burger that I ever ate was moose. I was on my first bear hunting trip to New Brunswick, Canada back in 2001. Moose season just ended a couple days before and a guy that got one didn’t have enough cooler space to transport all the meat home so he left some at the lodge. Paula the cook, a cute little thing by the way, made burgers and fries for dinner one night. I mentioned to the guy sitting next to me how great the burger was and he said that it was moose. I thought that he was joking, but Paula said that it really was moose. I need to get me one of those, but I’ve haven’t been lucky enough yet to draw a permit………………………


  3. Breakfast, lunch and dinner of champions. The only thing that I do different is to dredge the chops with flour and then bread them with Panko bread crumbs. Preheat an inch of peanut oil or lard in the oven to 350F. Put the skillet and chops in the oven and cook 15 minutes per side. Perfectly moist but tender and well done. Your spuds are perfect the way that you do them. Sometimes I’ll make a meal just from a big plate of those…………..

  5. Check out Kent Rawlins on YouTube or here at his website https://kentrollins.com/ for real cowboy cast iron cooking on his homebuilt stove Nelle, hauled around in an original 1870’s Studebaker chuck wagon. You can’t get full on fancy, as he says.


  6. Hi Bubba,
    ‘Remind’s me.. it’s the middle of October!! The “Cool off” is starting.. I gotta break out the 10 qt. “Lodge Cast Iron Dutch oven!!” Get the needed ingredients together and make up some of my Sister-in-law’s sister’s recipe “JAMBALAYA!!!!!!!!!” And a loaf of “Beer bread” to go with it!! If I get any positive responses to my post … “I’ll post the recipe’s!!!!!”


Pansies, Trolls and Liberals are urged to flee this place.
