    The Pocket Grill

    When copper and copper alloy surfaces contact acidic foods, copper may be leached into the food."This is because acidic foods react with copper, causing it to dissolve into food.Acidic foods coming in direct contact with copper can become toxic due to copper leeching into the food. Examples of acidic foods include tomatoes, fish, processed meats, grains and citrus fruits. Looking at the picture of mushrooms on the grill, what if that was Spam instead for example? It would probably be safer if stainless steel tubing was used instead. It may be harder to drill through, but safety should be the priority don't you think?

  • Best Way to Season Cast Iron Pans - Flax Seed Oil

    Thanks raleesii.Best reply I've heard yet. Another tip for getting the old, caked-on seasonings off that favorite pan to make it like new is to take advantage of your self-cleaning oven. After it's done, then re-season, and you're back in business.
