Well they are sold out at the moment. We prefer to buy local as well. For my steak flippers I’ve been wiping down with bacon grease and baking at 475 till they stop smoking. That seasons them very nice and they are not sticky. Basically same as I do for my cast iron pans. I’ll keep my eyes out for bees wax and continue to use the BLO for the non cookware till then. Though people are liking the painted coat hooks.
Today I’ll have to shovel a path to the smithy. We’ve had over 2’ of snow in the last few days. Got over a 40 hour week in the last 3 days plowing and more snow coming Thursday- Monday.
