Very nice!  Garage sales can be productive for cast iron priced quite inexpensively too.

If the shipping was not so high ($155.+ to Juneau!) I would be buying one of these: http://www.readydepot.com/servlet/the-74/Rusty-Goat-14-Quart/Detail  That is a good size and appearance for me.  Only $24.95 new.

This is most of my house cast iron right now.  The cauldrons, footed Dutch ovens, irons, etc...  are packed up for the winter.

For anyone near Garner, NC this store seems to have some good cast iron deals:

4 gallon cast iron cauldron for $44.49.  I suspect that the shipping would be prohibitive for me.

Hmmmmmmm. Not a bad price at all, Karl. But from the pix I believe it needs serious modification. It appears, for instance, to have a wire bail, which would have to be replaced. And I'm not quite sure what that extension is coming from the top rim.

Still, even adding in the cost of my Smith's work, the price is right, as is the size.

Replacing a bail is easy enough.  I saw that odd extension on several old and newer "yard pots" in North Carolina.  I could not make out if it was a gate of vent but I noticed that a lot of older yard pots without this extension were cracked along that section of the rim so it might be an intentional reinforcement(?)   I am more concerned about how rough the interior might be and seasoning it will be a bear just because of the size.  Doesn't matter much since they only ship UPS to Alaska the cost would be in the hundreds to get it here.  Even that 13qt cauldron in my earlier post would have cost $155.+ to ship.  My wife apparently has some deal on Amazon "Prime"(?) that gets cheap shipping even on heavy stuff like tires.  Amazon carries a variety of cast iron cauldrons but most seem to have pentacles and stuff cast on them or they are those nice (but overpriced potjies).  Confused



I have more cauldrons, Dutch ovens, and other cast iron stuff than I have an excuse to use here.   Maybe I could moonlight as a guide camp cook.
