I suggest you check out a guy named Kent Rollins and his YouTube video.  He is a wealth of info on CI.

I have not used a spray in a CI skillet. I have only used EVOO or canola when it comes to cooking. If need to re-season after cooking, I use Grapeseed only. This has worked very well for me and my skillets are non-stick. Eggs, fish - you name it and they cook great and release.

Just curious as to why you ask? I have four different sizes of CI skillets and two Carbon Steel pans (pan and a wok). Are you asking for seasoning or cooking purposes?

I have not. I use a high smoke point oil like grapeseed, but my son who works in a restaurant just uses canola oil. I admittedly don't use mine much though, but my son only uses cast iron, stainless, or carbon steel pans and skillets.

I have not had any issues with food sticking to my cast iron, but the key is the seasoning of the skillet. It truly does get better with use.

I have also seen that you are not supposed to use non-stick spray on teflon skillets and I have done that all my life. Oh well...

Have any of you guys used non-stick cooking spray on cast iron? The Internet is providing conflicting information.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, its pretty tasty. I used Owens BBQ regular SS mix and added 5 tsp of ECA (for 6 lbs) for tang. I'm going to make a batch of their German and Trail Bologna this week and do it the same way, finishing with the SV. It works out great, especially for the bigger casings.

This is also how I have finished various types of sausage I have made. The jalapeno brisket sausage I make and have posted here, I finish in the SV hot tub as well!

Your summer sausage looks great! Iíve still not made this but need to.

Sausage / Summer Sausage Sous Vide Finish

I made up a couple chubs yesterday, gave them an hour in the smoker to dry and then smoked for 2-2 1/2 hours. It was getting cold out and temps weren't coming up as fast as I'd like, so rather than having a real long night I decided to try something I'd read about on another forum. Got the Anova SV out and heated the water to 151*, vac packing the chubs while I waited. Tossed them in and being a little curious a half hour in I opened one to check the IT and it was at 151 already! Re-packed it and using Baldwins pasteurization chart I gave them another 4 hrs which was a little longer than necessary for 70 mm but better safe than sorry. Absolutely no difference at all in taste or texture and of course no fat out. I'll do this again but next time  I'll do 6-8 inch chubs rather 14 to make it easier to fit into a SV container.

Auber PID Tips and Tricks / Re: Auber unit failure

GFIs can be finicky; and they can fail.  If it trips again during the smoke, raise the power cord up off the ground. Any leakage can cause the gfi to trip. After you get through the smoke, see if it trips with another heat generating appliance plugged in, preferably one of a higher amperage.  Good luck!

Lots of newspaper or a throw away tarp.  Going to be a messy job.  Enjoy!
