If you don't want to go the auction route, you might check both Mt. Vernon and Kalona, each have antique shops so you will probably find something there. I have an old Erie brand skillet that was in the family for generations. One of the things I really wanted when cleaning out the house. I use it a lot, much lighter than the newer ones. I bought some newer iron skillets but whoever mentioned the smoothness of the inside cooking service is 100% right. The newer ones are not NEARLY as smooth and stuff will end up sticking. So make sure the inside cooking surface bottom is glass smooth!
No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.
If you don't own a cast iron skillet, it's well worth the time and money to invest in one. You can find them for sale on the internet, at cook stores everywhere, thrift stores, flea markets, or you can scour the tag and yard sales for one that might look as if it has seen better days. If the pan is rusty or encrusted with grease, buy it anyway. Don't worry! I'll tell you how to get that new or old one into shape so you can enjoy it for a lifetime of fat free cooking. You'll be able to pass the pan on to your own children and grandchildren.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
