Great tour of the factory and what's involved in producing their ironware.....

This is a very interesting video to me.  I like the process they show on each step in the casting, then the processing that goes into the item until it is ready to ship.  I had no idea they produced the quantity of items each month that the plant manager notes.

I think the link did a vanishing act from the OP. I can't see it either.
Is this what you were referencing?

I don't know if that's the same video or not because that video doesn't work for me. :shrug:   Here's hoping that one of the two will play for all of us! :cheers:

Not the same vid, but a good one.  I cannot (for reasons unknown to me) see some vids or pictures when I use Chrome.  When I use other browsers I can.

Our kids got us a Lodge charcoal hibachi for our 50th ann. 4 years ago; it's been marvelous for fixing meals for the two of us these past summers.  One of our favorites  has been grilled artichokes with steaks, and I've got a big rack of buffalo ribs I think I'll split and do up on the rig for a couple of meals next week.  Don't just beat the heat--CELEBRATE IT!
